Quote from: christiandubuc on August 08, 2023, 08:51:39 AMI am planning to get a GM-800 but have a few questions for those who already own one...1. I also have a SY-1000 and a GX-100. I normally connect my guitars (Godin internal GK and Strat equipped with a GK3) 13 pins cable to the SY-1000 and the ¼ output to the GX-100. Now, any suggestions how and where to connect the GM-100?2. Since I already have 13 pins GK guitars, any advantages of getting a GK5 pickup?Thanks,Chris

Quote from: christiandubuc on August 08, 2023, 10:29:57 AMThanks Elantric...And if I use a GK5 pickup, how about GK5 -> GM-800 GK In -> GM-800 GK Out -> GKC-AD -> SY-1000? Make sense or just overkill?
Quote from: gumtown on August 08, 2023, 01:01:23 PMDon't make a mistake of getting the wrong converter boxGKC-DA goes from GK serial to GK 13 pin (needed if you have GK-5 and want to use a 13 pin synth product, Digital to Analog)GKC-AD goes from GK 13 pin to GK serial (needed if you have GK-2/GK-3 13 pin instrument and want to go to a GM-800 GK serial input, Analog to Digital)
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on August 08, 2023, 01:06:19 PM... to gkc-ad, and from gkc-ad to gm-800 and sy-1000
Quote from: christiandubuc on August 08, 2023, 01:44:54 PMAnd how will you go to your SY-1000? Will you use a US-20 switcher like Elantric suggested?
Quote from: BROCKSTAR on August 08, 2023, 01:45:42 PMYeah I didn't think that through, so yeah looks like i'll need a us-20 switcher ugh, maybe I should have just had patience and waited for the new pickup to arrive
Quote from: gumtown on August 08, 2023, 02:12:55 PMMaybe you can get the GKC-AD converter for now, and when the GK-5 comes in, return/swap for a GKC-DA. ?
Quote from: thebrushwithin on August 08, 2023, 05:18:01 PMIf you're interested, I have several US 20s, just studio use, in great shape, and would sell one for $165 w/o short cables. If that sounds good, just PM me.
Quote from: whippinpost91850 on August 08, 2023, 05:49:44 PMI got everything hooked up and ran through the 100 patches. They were totally disappointing and underwhelming.Tomorrow I'll run through the other sounds , I'm thinking that where I'll find more of what I'm looking for.You would think Roland would have learned, about putting crap patches on the unit, when you first turn it on
Quote from: germanicus on August 09, 2023, 11:04:22 AMThe whole crap preset stock patch situation is a no win for Roland/Boss. Patches need to demonstrate the diversity and power of the device.It is next to impossible for them to divine what people like when it comes to sounds. What may tickle one guitarists fancies may be the complete opposite of the next.The best they can hope to do is for the first 5-10 patches to cover a wide range that hopefully scores a win with whatever the player likes. I say 5-10 patches because thats about as far someone will go before putting it down if they go in fresh before losing interest.
Quote from: Elantric on August 09, 2023, 11:11:07 AMIts all perspective and user expectationGM-800 stock presets cover a wide range of styles, imho most cover bands will use . ( download it here https://www.boss.info/global/support/by_product/gm-800/owners_manuals/35470faf-d370-4a6a-afb6-6030ffd1fa3a/ - far better musicality than SY-300 factory presets
Quote from: sixeight on August 21, 2023, 01:36:43 PMShameless plug, but I build these:https://sixeightsoundcontrol.onlineweb.shop/product/gk-splitterYou could use the insert to connect the normal guitar out to the GX-100.
Quote from: christiandubuc on August 21, 2023, 01:00:10 PMOk, coming back to the original question, I am not sure how should I add the GM-800 to my rig. One thing's for sure, I won't use the GK5 since 3 of my guitars are already equipped with a GK-3 or an internal 13 pins connectors (Godin xtSA and Godin Multiac ACS Slim SA). And on top of it, I still have my GX-100 that I want to use for certain patches...I have 2 scenarios so far (attached images). In your opinions, which one makes more sense? Or maybe you have another scenario that would be better?You cannot view this attachment. You cannot view this attachment.Thanks,Chris
