of preset patches and artist patches available for products that are compatible with Guitar Lab. You can also edit all the amp models and effects. You
can also edit patches with the GCE-3 and share them with emulated products. For example, you can use a compact GCE-3 at home and a ZOOM
multi-effect processor unit with high mobility for rehearsals and live performances. Use the model that is best for your circumstances.
You can also use GCE-3 as a USB audio interface. Since DSP is built-in, you
can use it to record in real time to a Mac/Windows computer.
