Gnx4 release date

04/26/2004


Hey guys,
Dropping a line to let you all know that I had just talked to Digitech again, and that the tentative date they are aiming at is the 27th of this month. The only issues that are being resolved is the software within the unit itself. From what I gathered from the rep. on the line, this could be it. She did say that if the problems persists, they will push it back by another week at the latest(seems to be a glitch that's pissing them off) and not another month, as has been the case upto now. So in essence, not long to go, either way.
I'll have more info on the 27th to see whether the wait is finally over or whether we should go back to playing with ourselves.....our guitars, I mean.

Update: Digitech is crunching to get all things finalized today. However, word around the office is whispering a possible push of the deadline to May 10th to insure that all the bugs and conflicts have been resolved. I'll have more solid info by tomorrow morning. Keep croosing those fingers.....hopefully we'll be playing with a new toy soon.

It's official.......it's not finalized yet.

Official statement: "Sometime in the month of May". Nice guy, but a little vague, I feel.
Anyway, the lady that I talked to yesterday seemed to have pretty good knowledge that the unit would be finished fairly soon. She specified that if they couldn't make the deadline yesterday, that she didn't see it dragging on beyond May 10th. And I got that impression when I talked to the gentleman today about it..."we are still finalizing some issues so that the unit ships out to customers bug free". If there only "some" issues left, it means that we are, indeed, very close to the finalized date. I'll have more on May 3rd.

note to mike: thou hast jammed in key, now thou shalt crescendo thy key'd jam and put it on toast...............and the month in question was April.

Word from digitech is that production still has not come to fruition. They have aimed for the 14th of this month (May) since it will be the 2 year anniversary of the release of the Gnx3. This is not a set date, just one they are supposedly aiming for. It is possible that the unit will be released before that time, although it is just as possible for it to be released after the 14th. At this point, I'll be waiting for e-mailed confirmation for when the unit goes into production. The minute I know, I'll relay the info to the rest of you.

Mike,

Thanks for your patience. The GNX4 is being tested right now. We hope to release it soon, but the testing process is critical.

But how come the guys at Guitar One "have" a genx 4? Another full page ad, been in the mag for months. Patches in the patch column but no genx4 to end user ? whas up? hope this arrives soon almost considering a different board.

Don't look now - but the web sellers (zzounds, samedaymusic, etc.) are all listing the GNX4 as arriving to their warehouses on May 28th. So maybe not as soon as some of us hoped, but of course that day could be meaningless. They previously had listed days in April and we saw what happened with that. I also think the Guitarone and GuitarWorld mag articles where the guy says he has a GNX4 already are a crock. They both say exactly the same thing, and it looks like salesman speak anyway, not like someone who had actually used the unit. Anywho, if May 28th is real, then I can wait a few more weeks. Don't have much choice anyway.

My guess is that he received one of the first prototypes and not an actuall unit. He is an avid user (obviously for all the articles he writes for), although his "copied" response did give me that feeling that it was a sales pitch, but that's not to say he doesn't already have a beta version of the unit to work with until they have finalized production. And as far as the ads go; it is possible that the advertisements were pushed forward for those issues because they thought it would have been finished by then. Hell, we all thought it would be out by now.
Gonna find out what Digitech has to say about all this......

10 minutes later...........

So the unit he has IS a prototype, and right now they are refining the SOFTWARE for the hardware. Been doing it for quite awhile, from what I gathered.
Second, the speaker compensation switch is to add a warm tubed sound through the line when running it into a mixer or a speaker setup (studio, cabs, etc.), very much like what can be found on the 2112 and 2120 (if I remember correctly).
For all those asking about best amps for the GNX; Digitech has stated that all the GNX units will work perfectly in a low gain environment. So for the newbies; learn how to use the knobs on your amp and what they all mean.
Third, in direct response to a question about whether or not it would be possible to split the signals of the tempo/drum machine and the guitar, the word from the techs; don't think so. The tech stated that May 28th seemed realistic, however he stressed that no permanent date had been officially set by Digitech. There you have it. I'm gonna go vomit now.......

Re: Gnx4 release date

Delightful!!
I am so happy to be informed that I sold my genx at a loss so the date for releasing the genx4 can be pushed back into the next millenium . I am getting pretty ticked about the way this is being handled. Is there a real release date or is this all some evil plot designed to make me purchase other pedals from some other manufacturer or what.??? Seriously, digitech folks, if you read these boards isnt it about time you responded to those of us who ordered this product in good faith, months ago, that your communication about releae dates for this product is at least close to factual. Or fill us in as to wether working musicians need to find an alternative to this product if we expect to use it within the next year!!!!

First:
Dont teach me, about my Language..."I know its bad!" But i learn OK.

Uh yes thats true...
I order my GNX4 at 03.15.04 -

mmh...and i can't understand that no 1 from Digitech, or simply
Webmaster, give here a short statement...?

This is a expensive Unit, and there are other Products out, which
are good too...and i throught ...mmh...maybe i buy a GNX3...mmh..

But that sux, when you pointed on a Unit "You Pointed!" -
And that for a good reason...

When U are a Guitar Player and composer, so U know the F**k with
all the other Instruments, like "Bass and Drums" ... switch to other
Instrument, eject - inject the cabels...take the Bass Guitar, tune...!

All this will be forgoten..."With a GNX4" ...

So, if they work hard to fix Bugs, ...what will be better for a good
Product...yes, at first i like that, that shows Professional Work!

But a little Statement, from D-tech, will be great...this handling, look NOT Professional ...you let the Customers "ALONE!"
Maybe they buy nevertheless, but maybe they buy a other Unit, that
is distructiv Marketing!

And think on all the other users "WITH NO ACOUNT!" -
They read that...and..."YES, the rest you know by your own!"

I think so...

PS:
I mean what is the Prob. ...when i must wait further 2 month, so i must
wait...but when i can "READ IT" from the Developer, i'm sadisfy and
must not inform me day by day or call my "Digitech-Dealer"...
Hello..SIR...is the Unit available....??? ..."Other Side" = NO...?!
Thank you (For nothing) ...and Goodbye...that is Stupid and i pay for
any stupid Te.: Call Money...!
So with a correct Statement, this will be past!

Excellent point MikeB! I understand that the waiting is due to Digitech wanting to release a solid product and trying to eliminate as many bugs as possible. But it would be extremely helpful to those of us who ordered the product to get some official word from Digitech as to what the status is, and when we can reasonably expect to receive the product.

So Digitech... What's up with the GNX4?

Mike,

Thanks for your your patience. The GNX4 is still being refined. We want to ship a product that is as trouble free as humanly posible. Since the GNX4 is a very complex device in terms of functions it will perform, the testing process needs to be thorough and meticulous. Even one small bug requires a re-writing of code. We are getting closer.

THE LATEST FROM DIGITECH, NO SHIPPING DATE THOUGH
