Korg's REMS Technology
Korg's REMS (Resonant structure and Electronic circuit Modeling System) technology enables the AX1500G to deliver truly great sounding effects - and a lot of them! The amp/distortion sounds go all the way from warm classic-tube overdrive to extreme high-gain metal. You get the sounds of a closet full of classic stomp boxes plus spring reverb, tape echo, and more. There's even an acoustic simulator that models an electric-acoustic sound. With vintage and modern, closed and open-back cabinet models that run the gamut from 4x12 stacks to 1x8 combos, the AX1500G read more is one incredibly versatile tone machine.

Easy Editing
With the new AX1500G, versatility doesn't come at the price of complexity. The ToneWorks' design team wanted to ensure that getting great sounds was quick and easy. That's why the user interface will be familiar to any guitarist whose ever used a stomp box: knobs and switches. Creating and editing programs with the AX1500G is very intuitive and the vintage-style "chicken head" knobs are cool, too!

96 Instantly Accessible Programs
The AX1500G comes with 48 preset programs plus the ability to store 48 additional programs of your own creation. Up to 8 effects can be combined per program and you can turn individual effects on or off with the AX1500G's foot switches.

One of the unique things about the AX1500G is that it gives the guitarist 2 selectable channels per program. Like a channel-switching amp, you can change channels instantly (without moving to a different program) and go from a rhythm to a solo sound instantly.

Built-in Expression Pedal offers Real-Time Control
The AX1500G's built-in Expression pedal provides real-time control of eleven effects like wah, volume, and pitch bend. The Expression pedal can also be used to control the AX1500G's Sample & Play function. Sample & Play makes it possible to record up to 8 seconds of your own playing, loop the recorded phrase and play along with it, play the phrase in reverse, and do other kinds of wild studio effects.

Power-Paced Practice with the Phase Trainer
The AX1500G also boasts a Phrase Trainer that makes learning riffs by ear really simple. Say you want to copy a guitar solo. The Phrase Trainer lets you record up to 16 seconds from a CD or cassette; slow down the playback speed to as little as 25% of the original without changing its pitch, and loop the playback to repeat the phrase over and over until you get it! There's even a Hold function that lets you extend a specific note. The AX1500G even includes an AUX IN feature so you can play along with an external audio source.

Auto Chromatic Tuner
Korg invented the first hand-held electronic tuner and continues to be the leader in the field. In fact, many of the world's "guitar heroes" rely on guitar techs that rely on Korg tuners to keep their guitars in perfect playing shape. The AX1500G features a built-in Korg auto-chromatic tuner that functions in Bypass and Mute modes. The Mute mode, which lets you tune silently, is ideal for tuning on stage. And there's even a built-in metronome!

The AX1500G is one great sounding (and great looking) multi-effects processor that's packed with cool features. Try one. Whether you're recording or playing live, you'll appreciate the AX1500G's versatility and truckloads of tone.

If you looking for profesional sound it is batter to use analog pedals but for exercise and live gigs in bars and coffe shops this device is a great. For home is a perfect.
