For bedroom guitar geeks, this is the bombe. Performing professional guitarists (like me) are still wary of software-driven anything. The feature list is staggering. The interface is clean and easy. But without a good computer and technological savvy, this could be a nightmare.

The best, most realistic, natural feeling, responsive, nuanced, detailed and believable modeled sounds to date, similar to the quality of the original GP 100. Far better than PODs or the new Roland trash.

Awesome feature set, assignable foot-switches, multiple effects, filters, loops etc. plus a useful collection of presets.

Ease of Use
Are far as software-driven stuff goes, the easiest I have seen.

pedal is sturdy... would prefer balanced outs and fire-wire, but it works and is relatively noise-free. Hardware seems reliable, but there is never any guarantee with software on any computer. Analog is still the most reliable for pros.

For the effects and models, a solid ten. But remember, this software is only as good as your knowledge, skill, and your playback equipment. It is software, so you can't return it. The pedal is useless without the software. You will need a fast, strong computer (MAC) and plenty of memory to utilize this thing's potential.

Manufacturer Support
Slow, incomplete, and read more a snotty attitude.

The Wow Factor
If you have a good stereo PA system or great studio monitors, and you are not afraid of computers, this is an awesome package. If you want to use it live through regular guitar amps, are "old school" or just hate digital stuff, then this isn't for you.

Musical Background:
pro studio and touring
