Quote from: plexified on January 24, 2020, 07:33:49 PMWhy would the GR-55 not work with a fretless guitar? I am literally tooling up to build one. After watching a ErHu player and Ron Bumblefoot Thal. I must have it. (GK inboard kit with Sustainiac) I'll report back, but I was really curious, Thx
Quote from: plexified on January 25, 2020, 07:00:33 AMThanks a lot , that was exactly what I was wondering. I'll definitely look into the GR20, the fretless is very compelling. It great to hear your giving it a shot. I'll be sure to visit the fretless site, that should be fun. On a side note I was wondering if your name had any throw back to Jimmie Rodgers, I just had him on my radar recently and really enjoyed his work and story. One of his nicknames was Brakeman, an avid train man. Was especially intrigued with the guitar style and its relation to Robert Johnson , whom I had finished a few tunes I was working on. Documentary film maker Ken Burns had quite a story on him in his Country Music series. Thanks again!
Quote from: eUphonic on August 21, 2020, 07:40:46 AMAnother user here who kept the GR20 for its tracking... in the meantime, I've tried the GR55 and returned it for this reason. Then I've bought a GP10, that I like for its guitar modeling but... that I've not succeeded to make work for synth sound when it comes to tracking. :-/ Maybe it's just me...

Quote from: admin on August 21, 2020, 08:23:41 AMGP-10 is for Modeling and Guitar to MIDI ( driving SoftSynths on a Laptop) Its COSM SYNTHS ( GR-300) is very good wBut its internal OSC Synth tracking is crap and glitchy If you want best INTERNAL Synth tracking - the GP-10 is NOT the unit for you

Quote from: eUphonic on August 21, 2020, 10:39:29 AMFor the record, I've precisely not bought the GP10 for its synth sounds I just wanted a kind of guitar modeling that my Variax was not able to offer (especially the nylon strings emulation and the ability to mimic a 12 strings electric guitar ; it does it in a pretty good way IME, even when compared to my "real" double neck axe. These two features alone justify IMHO the price of the unit). I just wish the GP10 hadn't this glitchy OSC mode that you mention... Anyway, no regret to have kept the GR20.
Quote from: shawnb on August 21, 2020, 11:49:33 AMI have found that the GR-55 actually did pretty good on tracking slide. (It's the weird slight timing issues that drive me nuts with the GR-55...)Note that the pitch bend range on the GR-55 is fixed at 24. Any value other than 24 on the synth side will give you problems with legato, whammy, slide, & bends.
Quote from: haz9v on June 15, 2021, 07:38:40 AMHi all, First post here. I recently picked up a GR-20 and a GR-55 to play around with mostly on bass. I just tried the 20 today and I must say it seems to track so much better than the 55. It was quite usable right off the bat. Granted I have only played with both for a very limited time, so I need to work on both. lol
