Hi all,

After a long time of silence I am back on this excellent forum.

The main reason is the purchase of an SY1000.

I have used and am still using the GR55 quite heavily. I love it, but it is getting dated, especially in the amp modelling section.

SY1000 is part of my search for improvement in this area.

(Still baffled & disappointed that Roland does not simply bring out a GR5555.)

Hope to learn a lot!



Welcome back !!
The SY-1000 is a great unit.
The GR-55 equivalent today is
SY1000 + GM-800 + GKC-DA + EV-1-WL
a lot more expense, but equivalent to GR-55 x 3.

You haven't changed Gumtown!
Still as great a moderator as ever.

If a clever Roland product manager puts your suggested combination in one -gk3 compatible- casing I'll buy it immediately.

For now, I was put off a little by yet another gk for the GM800 (or the converter).

As you probably read already, I'll start humbly with the EV-1. Maybe I'll end up with your dream chain eventually.
