Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (81 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Perfection!"
Sound: Honestly, I don't know why people complain about the distortion on this program. With a little tweaking, I have been able to achieve some amazingly convincing distortion sounds, especially from the JCM 800 and Citrus models. I use GR3 live and in the studio and it destroys anything else I have ever used! Feature: What can I say? It has everything you could ever need and has expandable controls. Ease of Use: Because I have computer and sound engineering experience, I find GR3 extremely straight forward and simple to learn/operate. I can, however, understand if some less experienced people find its wealth of features a little overwhelming. Quality: I have played about 50 gigs with GR3 and a Macbook and I have had absolutely zero issues with reliability. The hardware is durable and the software has yet to crash. I'm sure that running it on a Mac helps. I would not recommend using a Windows PC for a live application. Value: Compared to actually owning the gear that GR3 emulates, the value is ridiculously great. Compared to any other modeling system, the value still holds up due to its vastly superior quality. Manufacturer Support: As most people familiar with Native Instruments tech support know, they(NI) are not the most helpful people. They seem to assume that the user should already know whatever they are asking about. If we did, why would we be asking? Thankfully, the product works well and so far has not required any support from NI. The Wow Factor: I needed it, and I bought it. I wanted it so bad that I bought a brand new Macbook for the sole purpose of operating it. I don't even have any other apps installed! Overall: Before using GR3, I toured with various live bands as a keyboard player. I used a Macbook with Reason 3.0 as a live sampler so gigging with a laptop was not a new thing for me. Now, as a guitar player, I have found the answer to all my prayers. I play in a house band and I need an extremely wide array of tones. GR3 provides me with every tone I could ever need. Plugged straight into the house PA, it sounds much better than my Dual Rectifier miked through the same system. I can match the tones straight from the albums of the songs we play and live it sounds just like the recording. Amazing!!!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
