The TC Electronic G•Major benefits from the company’s dedication to high quality guitar processors. Following in the footsteps of the G-Force, the G•Major makes affordable a technology beyond your expectations. G•Major can run seven different effects and a Tuner simultaneously, and offers real time control of a number of parameters through MIDI or pedal Input. G•Major preset change is fast and smooth, and supports true spillover of Delays. The G•Major is strictly effects, which means that the guitarist must have an additional pre-amp. Effects are organized in blocks, and each block contains several effect types to choose from. For example, the Delay block holds: Stereo Delay, PingPong Delay, Tap Delay and Dynamic Delay. There are more than 25 algorithms inside. Make the most of them instantly! NOISE GATE A Noise Gate is generally used to attenuate the signal when you don’t play the guitar. This way you can avoid hearing all the hiss, hum and other noise your system might generate. Press RECALL to initiate a recall operation. Use the EDIT wheel in the Control section (inner wheel) to select preset. Press to access all MIDI related parameters as well as display settings for better viewing comfort etc. MULTI EFFECTS TC Electronic award winning technology found its way into the G•Major. So have extensive control and ease of use: • Single click: toggles the current effect on/off. • Double click: accesses the edit page. This is maximum control in no time! FILTER/MOD Resonance Filter The Resonance filters are basically a Hi and Lo Cut filter that can be swept up and down the frequency range. When the Resonance (Q-factor) parameter is increased, the filters peak and the cutoff frequency gets very narrow and very steep. REVERB As far as Hall, Plate and Room algorithms, each Reverb consists of Early Reflections and a Diffuse Field. In any Reverb simulation the Early Reflections define the shape and size of the room. The Diffuse Field represents “the Reverb Tail”. The Spring algorithm is designed to reproduce the sound of the old spring Reverbs, as used in vintage guitar amps. Channel Switching Changing your sound from a crisp clean dry rhythm sound to a overdriven lead sound, will most likely involve channel switching on your Preamp or Combo in addition to changing your effects preset. Generally this implies the investment of a separate switching system. Not with the G•Major! With the built-in Relay Switching on the G•Major you are able to switch between up to 3 channels on your Preamp or Combo. Modifiers The G•Major holds four modifiers. A Modifier is a virtual handle, that can be remote controlled via MIDI Cc´s or the Ext. Control jack. A Modifier can be connected to several effects parameters simultaneously. Additionally a unique transmission may be set up between the Modifier and each of the connected effects parameters. Tuner The G•Major Chromatic tuner ranges from 420 Hertz to 460 Hertz. Mute the Outputs of your G•Major when tuning your guitar. You can setup either a MIDI pedal, a momentary switch or an Expression pedal to control the mute function. G•Minor is a multi purpose MIDI triple footswitch COMP Compressor A Compressor is used to reduce the dynamic content of a signal. There are situations where a compressor should not be applied on the guitar and there are definitely situations where it is the key to letting the guitar stand out and appear rock solid. CHO/FLA Classic and Advanced Chorus The Advanced Chorus algorithm holds a few extra parameters compared to the Classic Chorus. You have the option of turning the Golden Ratio on/off, controlling the Chorus Delay and also applying a Phase Reverse function for extra widening of the Chorus effect. Classic and Advanced Flange A Flange is a short Delay modulated via an LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator). “Feedback” in relation to any Delay means the parameter that controls the number Delay repetitions. Select the Classic Flange or the Advanced Flange which features the Golden Ratio facility inherited from the classic TC 2290 Dynamic Delay processor. Vibrato A Vibrato effect modulates the incoming pitch. As opposed to a Chorus effect no direct signal is combined with this pitch modulation. Tremolo A Tremolo is basically a change of level controlled by an LFO. The G•Major holds variations from soft, smooth to hard and aggressive Tremolos. Panner The panner simply pans the signal from one channel to the other. Vintage and Smooth Phaser Two effective good phaser types. The Vintage Phaser will give you the phasing effect similar to the one found in old stomp boxes. The Smooth Phaser is excellent for a less dominant effect. The Vintage Phaser and Smooth Phaser utilize respectively four and twelve All-pass filters. These filters create a comb-looking characteristic. When the filtered sound is mixed with the direct sound, the “phasing sound” occurs. PITCH Detune The source signal is split and a specified amount of the signal is detuned to you specifications. The Detune block in the Pitch block holds two voices. A Delay for each voice could be applied as a slapback effect. DELAY that sends and receives MIDI information. It allows for specific remote control of the TC Electronic G•Major but can also control any MIDI device. The G•Major holds a number of Delay modes that will cover not only your basic needs, but also Delay effects thought of as unachievable unless hooked up with extremely high-end audio equipment. Actually that is exactly what the G•Major guitar processor features! (Optional) Whammy The Whammy effect gives you the opportunity to control the pitch of an added voice with an external MIDI Expression pedal. PingPong With the PingPong Delay line you are able to pan the repeats from left to right. Pitch Shifter With the G•Major Pitch Shifter you are able to add 2 voices, each with a fixed pitch within +/- one octave from the Input note. The processing of the G•Major is at a speed where you will never notice any “searching” for the notes as with many older octaver units and octaver stomp boxes. Dynamic Delay The Dynamic Delay is a function that allows the Delay Output level to be actively altered by the dynamics of the Input level. A function that can be used to leave the source material clear and undisturbed while played and delicately accompanied by the Delay between phrases. Dual Delay The Dual Delay algorithm allows you to have two Delay lines running at the same time. In other terms you have two separate Delay “units” in parallel, each with its own set of parameters. Tap to enter global tempo. The tapped tempo can be viewed in BPM (beats per minute) or ms (milliseconds). G•Major can be synchronized to an incoming MIDI clock. Press to BYPASS ALL effects. Press and hold for approx. 1 sec to mute Outputs (silent tuning). Routing G•Major holds three different effects Routings. that can be changed with the preset or fixed to your favorite selection. The Serial Routing connects all seven effects blocks in straight line, equal to a regular guitar stomp box setup. Semi Parallel still connects the first five effects blocks in a serial manner, while the Reverb and Delay block are now connected in parallel. The Parallel Routing still allows serial based effects like the Noise Gate, Compressor and Tremolo to be connected in serial, and additionally connects the Pitch, Chorus, Delay and Reverb in a parallel setup. G•Minor gives immediate access to the most fundamental functions of the G•Major, such as Program changes, Tap tempo, Tuning the guitar onthe-fly but also more specifically realtime effects selection. Additionally the G•Minor MIDI In is capable of merging any MIDI data from a second G•Minor into the MIDI Out stream, allowing daisy chaining of several units.
