Still an industry-standard, but now falling in price from a peak of well over £1000 (perhaps because of the arrival of the Axe-FX), the G-Force has defined high-quality guitar effects processors for over a decade. Its time-delay effects – reverbs, delays, choruses, flanges and pitchshifts – are pretty definitive. Overdrive/distortion are horrible!
Customer support is pretty crap though, and TC charge dearly for firmware updates which are only accessible on a costly ‘G-card’ currently €175. Ouch. Sorry to bang on about how great the Axe-FX is again, but in a world where Line 6 and Fractal Audio systems are offering me free and regular firmware updates, I’m not giving you anywhere near €175 for the privilege!
