I bought a GK-3 for my carvin, for now im just going to use my neighbors old gr-20 but i want to get the gr-55. My question is how do you run the signal? Would you run it to the amp, i ask this because i wonder if the speaker would add to much color to the midi samples, im not using e120, im using stock 73 twin speakers reconed by Jensen.
I would like to get the gr-55 soon also! I noticed that J.K. was using it at the PPV thing at TRI studios. I have been looking into this midi synth thing for a while now and my research on the internet is leading me to believe that you will get a much better response from a acoustic amp or straight to the PA? I think that this is very close to what Vic from Playing Dead does with his AXE FX (he really has some great original tunes by the way!) , basically the signal is getting digitized to mimic other instruments and you need the proper speakers and HORNS to do this type of thing and a regular guitar speaker just will not do it from what I am gathering off of the other guitar synth blog sites! I MIGHT BE WRONG but this is what I am gathering from a fairly new(1980 I think) and not widely accepted technology among guitar players.
When I get my GR55 up and running With the Graphtech Ghost Hexpander System I will Post a few samples of the useable sounds!
I am really wondering what J.K. is using the GR55 for? It Just Looks Like Too Much Fun.......... I Gotttta Geddit
