Introduction
Editing/Creating a Preset
The GNX3 was designed to make sound processing easy and intuitive. Because the GNX3 provides both
Amp Modeling and Effects Processing, the editing functions are divided into two sections: the Amp/Cabinet
Modeling section and the Effects section. The GeNetX™ technology contained in the GNX3 lets you go
much further than mere Amp Modeling. GeNetX™ lets you create your own Amp/Cabinet HyperModel™
and store this custom creation to a User Amp/Cabinet location. When editing either the Amp/Cabinet
Modeling, or the Effects section, you must start with one of the User or Factory Presets. It is not possible to
start with a completely empty preset. The preset you begin with does not need to be in the location that
you intend to save it. To begin creating a HyperModel™ or just edit the effects, you must select a preset as
your starting point.
Amp/Cabinet Modeling
After selecting a preset, you can select the Amp Models or Cabinet Types for your preset. Amp/Cabinet
Modeling applies the tone of one of several vintage or modern Amp Models and Cabinet Types to your guitar
signal. The GNX3 includes accurate emulations of fifteen guitar Amp Models, four Bass Amp Models, one
Acoustic Guitar Simulation, and sixteen Speaker Cabinet Types.Your choices include:

Introduction
Creating HyperModels™
Creating new, unique HyperModels™ is what GeNetX™ is all about. Once the Green and Red Amp
Models and Cabinet types are selected, and the Amp Parameters and Cabinet Tuning have been adjusted,
GeNetX™ technology lets you do something amazing. The characteristics of each Amp and Cabinet
assigned to the Green and Red Channels can actually be combined or “Warped” to create a completely
new Amp HyperModel™. The procedure for Warping the Green and Red Amps together is as follows:
1. Press the Status button until its LED lights yellow.
2. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to Warp the Green and Red Amps and Cabinets together. Rotating
counterclockwise adds Green Channel characteristics, and clockwise adds Red Channel characteristics.
Saving HyperModels™ (Amp Save)
When you have finished editing the Green and Red Channels, you must save the HyperModel™ for
future use. This HyperModel™ can be saved in one of 9 User HyperModel™ locations. After it has
been saved, it can be used in either the Green or Red Amp Channel. The Amp Save procedure is as
follows:
1. Press the AMP SAVE button. The Amp Save button begins flashing and the display reads NEWAMP.
The N of NEWAMP is flashing indicating that you can name your HyperModel™.
2. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the alpha-numeric character.
3. Use the DRUMS button to move to the next character (to the right), or the MODE BUTTON
to select the previous character (to the left).
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the HyperModel™ name appears in the display.
5. Press the AMP SAVE button again to select one of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations. If the
GNX3 has any unused HyperModel™ locations available, the display reads EMPTY U1. The U1
flashes indicating that this is the first available location for HyperModel to be stored. If all 9
HyperModel™ locations are full, the GNX3 defaults to the first HyperModel™ location and
displays the name of HyperModel™ stored in the first location.
6. Use the DATA WHEEL to select a User location to save the HyperModel. If all locations have
been used, the display shows the name of the HyperModel™ about to be overwritten.
7. Press the AMP SAVE button again to complete the Amp Save procedure.
Press EXIT at any time during the Amp Save procedure to abort the process.
Note: The Amp Save procedure only saves Amp/Cabinet combinations to the User
HyperModel™ locations. It does not store changes or the new HyperModel™ to the
selected preset. See page 16 for information on storing changes to a Preset
Editing the Effects
The GNX3 contains a comprehensive library of fully programmable, studio quality Effects. The Effects section
is accessed with the Effect Select Up/Down buttons.The Matrix LEDs light one at a time to identify the
selected row of effects . When you have selected the effect row, you have up to 5 Parameters that can be
edited. Each effect row is divided into 6 columns of Parameters.The first column is the on/off control.
Pressing the Status button at the top of the first column turns the effect group on and off. The knobs at the
top of the other 5 columns control the Parameters listed directly beneath the corresponding knob. Each
effect’s parameter is labeled in the Matrix. When a knob is turned, the corresponding parameter name
appears in the green alpha-numeric display and the parameter value displays in the red numeric display.
16
Introduction
Rotating the parameter knobs increases or decreases the value of the parameter and you hear the change in
real time. When parameter values have changed, the Store LED lights indicating the preset has been modified
and needs to be stored (see page 17 for more on the storing procedure). Changing presets, or turning the
power off before storing any changes will erase your changes and revert to the stored values. When the
preset has been edited, you may store your settings to any of the 65 User Preset locations.
Storing/Copying a Preset
When editing a preset, the Store LED lights indicating you have changed a parameter and need to store
the changes. Once you have modified the Amp Models, Cabinet types, and Effect Parameters, store it to a
User Preset location.The following steps outline the procedure for storing a preset:
1. Press the STORE button.The first letter of the preset name begins flashing.
2. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the alpha-numeric character
3. Press the DRUMS button to select the next character to the right, and the EDIT button to select the
previous character to the left.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the preset name shows in the display.
5. Once you have entered the name for the preset, press the STORE button again.The current preset
location flashes in the numeric display.
6. Select the User Preset location using the DATA WHEEL.

Effects and Parameters
Effects and Parameters
The GNX3 can be thought of as several different “virtual” amplifiers, and individual, hi-tech stomp boxes.
With stomp boxes, the order in which they are connected can make a big difference in how good the overall
sound is. Whether the stomp boxes are placed before the amp, or in the amp’s effects loop will also make a
difference. The following diagram shows the signal path through the processing contained in the GNX3.
Effect Definitions
Each Effect within the GNX3 is fully programmable. Understanding how these effects alter the sound, and
how each parameter alters the effect will help you achieve the sound you are looking for. The following
overview outlines how each effect and parameter in the GNX3 alters the sound.
Wah-Pickup
AWah is an effect controlled by the Expression Pedal. A Wah applies a boost in gain to a narrow band of
frequencies. As the Expression Pedal is rocked back and forth, the center frequency receiving the boost is
swept up and down making the guitar sound as if it is saying “Wah.” The Wah is engaged and disengaged
by applying pressure to the V-Switch located under the toe of the Expression Pedal. See page 66 for
more information regarding the V-Switch.
The Pickup Simulator applies the warmth and thickness of a double coil humbucker pickup to a single coil
guitar, or the unique, crisp sound of a single coil pickup to a guitar with a humbucker.This allows you to
have the best of both worlds without ever changing guitars.
Wah On/Off - The STATUS button (or the V-Switch) turns the Wah (Wah) on and off.
Wah Type - The Parameter 1 knob selects the type of Wah.Values include: Cry Wah (CRY) is a
traditional sounding Wah, Boutique Wah (BOuTIQUe) is a wide sweeping Wah with a more
modern sound and Full Range Wah (fullrang)sweeps the entire spectrum of audible
frequencies.
Wah Minimum - The Parameter 2 knob is used to select the minimum point the Wah (WAH MIN) will
reach in the toe up position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Wah Maximum - The Parameter 3 knob is used to select the maximum point the Wah (WAH MAX) will
reach in the toe down position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Pickup Type/Off -The Parameter 4 knob selects the type of Pick Up to be be simulated.Values include:
Pickup Simulator Off (pick off), Single Coil>Humbucker (SC>humb) gives a single
coil pick up the warm tone of a humbucker , and Humbucker>Single Coil (humb>SC)
gives a humbucker the unique sound of a single coil .
The Parameter 5 knob doesn’t function when the Wah-Pickup module is selected.

Effects and Parameters
Compressor
A compressor is used to increase sustain, and tighten up a guitar signal. A compressor sets boundaries
for a signal’s strength. When a signal exceeds the set boundary, it is forced back into the set boundary.
As the signal fades to a point where it no longer exceeds the boundary, the compressor expands the
signal strength and increases sustain. The compression parameters are as follows:
Comp On/Off - The STATUS button turns the Compressor (Compress) on and off.
Attack - The Parameter 1 knob adjusts the length of time it takes for the Compressor to respond to a
signal exceeding the Threshold. Values include: fast, meDIUM, and slOw.
Ratio - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the input to output ratio once the Threshold has been exceeded.
For instance, a Ratio of 4 to 1 means that a signal exceeding the Threshold by 4 dB will only be
allowed 1 dB of increased output. Higher settings yield a tighter, sound and increase sustain.
Lower settings allow better dynamics. Ranges include: ¡2-1 (1.2:1), ¡5-1 (1.5:1), ¡8-1 (1.8:1),
™0-1 (2:1), ™5-1 (2.5:1), £0-1 (3:1), ¢0-1 (4:1), ∞0-1 (5:1), •0-1 (8:1), 10-1 (10:1), 20-1 (20:1),
and INF-1 (infinity:1).
Threshold - The Parameter 3 knob selects the Threshold (threshld). The Threshold is the level a
signal is allowed to reach before the compressor begins to work. Low Threshold settings
activate the compressor with weaker signals. Higher settings require a stronger signal to
activate compression. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Gain - The Parameter 4 knob adjusts the Output Gain (Gain) from the Compressor. This parameter is
used to balance the level of the Compressor to reach unity gain. Other effects can clip if the
Compressor Gain too high. Ranges from 0 to 20 (dB).
The Parameter 5 knob doesn’t function when the Compressor is selected.
Whammy/IPS/Talker
This module includes four types of pitch altering effects:Whammy™, IPS, Detune, and Pitch Shift, and
Digitech’s exlcusive Talker™ effect. The Status button turns the Whammy/IPS/Talker (Wham/IPS) module
on and off. The Parameter 1 knob elects whether the module is a Whammy™(WHAMMY), Intelligent Pitch
Shifter (IPS), Detuner (DETUNE), Pitch Shifter (PITCH), or Talker (Talker 1-5) Parameters 1, 2, and 3 in
the Matrix have different functions depending upon which effect is selected in this module.
Whammy™ is an effect that uses an Expression Pedal to bend the pitch of the incoming signal, or add a
bendable harmony with the original signal. As the Pedal is moved, the note bends either up or down.
When Whammy™ is selected, it is automatically placed before the Amp Modeling as shown in the block
diagram (see page 19).The Whammy™ effect must be linked to the Expression Pedal in order to function.
See page 61 for more information on linking the Expression Pedal.
Parameter 1 (Whammy™) - The Parameter 2 knob selects the interval and direction of the pitch
bend. Choices are as follows:
Whammy (no Dry Signal)
Harmony Bends (Dry Signal Added)
1 OCT UP (1 octave up)

pedal position. Ranges from 0 to 99.
The Parameter 4 knob has no function when the Whammy™ is selected.
Intelligent Pitch Shifting (IPS)
Intelligent Pitch Shifting makes a copy of the incoming signal, and then changes the pitch of the copied
note to a diatonically correct interval specified by the Amount parameter. An Intelligent Pitch Shifter
sharpens or flattens the shifted pitch in order to keep the specified interval within the selected key
and scale creating a true harmony.
Parameter 1 (IPS) - The Parameter 2 knob selects the Amount or harmony interval for the
Intelligent Pitch Shifter. Interval choices include:

range from Key E (KEY E) through Key Eb&(KEY Eb) .
Detuning
Detuning is similar to a standard pitch shifter with the exception that it shifts the copied signal by less
than a semitone resulting in an effect as if two guitars were slightly out of tune and playing in unison.
Parameter 1 (Detune) - The Parameter 2 knob selects the Amount (AMouNT) of detuning applied
to the copied pitch in cents (100 cents equals 1 semitone). Ranges are
from 24 cents below (-24) to 24 cents above (+24).
The Parameter 3 and 4 knobs don’t function when Detune is selected.
Pitch Shifter
A Pitch Shifter makes a copy of the incoming signal and the shifts the pitch of the copied signal and
keeps the shifted pitch at a parallel distance from the input note.
Parameter 1 (Pitch) - The Parameter 2 knob selects the Shift (SHIFT) of the pitch in semitone
intervals. Ranges from two octaves below (-24) to two octaves above
(+24).
The Parameter 3 and 4 knobs have no function when Pitch is selected.
Level - The Parameter 5 knob adjusts the Level or Mix (IPS LVL/IPS MIX) of all pitch altering
effects in this module. Ranges from 0 to 99.
21
Effects and Parameters
Talker™
The Talker™ is an effect designed exclusively by DigiTech, that lets your instrument speak. The
Talker™ requires a microphone be connected to the Mic Input on the rear panel of the GNX3. As
you speak into the microphone, your instrument mimics what you say. The Talker™ effect is output
only at the 1/4” left and right outputs. When the Talker™ is bypassed, the mic signal is passed from
the XLR mic input to the XLR mic output unaffected. There are five Talker™ types.
Type - The Parameter 4 knob is used to select the 5 Talker™ types. Talker types range from
talker 1 (deep tonal characteristics), to talker 5 (bright tonal characteristics).
Sensitivity - The Parameter 2 knob adjusts the microphone sensitivity. The input level from your
microphone must be loud enough for the Talker™ to work properly. If the
microphone input is too weak, the Talker™ will have trouble tracking. If the input is
too strong, the Talker™ will clip making the words unintelligible.The Mic Sensitivity
ranges are from 1 (least sensitive) to 99 (most sensitive).

Tutorial
Suppose you wanted to create your own HyperModel™ that incorporates the sweet tones of a vintage
Tweed using an American 2x12 cabinet, and the ripping distortion of a Rectified Amp with a British 4x12
cabinet. Let’s also suppose that you want to be able to toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and this
new HyperModel™ with a preset that gives your single coil pickup a humbucker sound, uses no
Compression, has a Noise Gate that opens quickly, a subtle Chorus effect, no Delay, and a little bit of a Hall
reverb.The following steps guide you through the process of creating just that preset in the GNX3.
Select a Preset
The first step to create a preset is to select your starting point. You can start with any preset, but for this
example let’s start with Preset 40. Use the Footswitches or the Data Wheel to select Preset 40.
Create a HyperModel™
For this example, we are going to use a vintage Tweed amp with an American 2x12 Cabinet, and warp it with
a Rectified Amp using a British 4x12 cabinet.
1. Select Preset 40. The GNX3 is ready to select the Amp Models (indicated by the Status button’s yellow
LED).
Select the Green Channel Amp and Cabinet
The LEDs next to the Parameter 1 and Parameter 2 knobs are green indicating you can select the Amp
and Cabinet types for the Green Channel. To assign the vintage Tweed amp to the Green Channel, do the
following:
1. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the display reads TWEED (Tweed).
2. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob until the display reads AMer2X12 (American 2x12).
Select the Red Channel Amp and Cabinet
The LEDs next to the Parameter 4 and Parameter 5 knobs are red indicating you can select the Amp and
Cabinet types for the Red Channel.To assign the Rectified amp to the Red Channel, do the following:
1. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display reads rectfied (Rectified).
2. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob until the display reads BRit4X12 (British 4x12).
30
Tutorial
Adjust the Green Channel Parameters
The Tweed amp that we selected for our Green Channel assignment uses the factory default settings for
the Gain, EQ, and Level Parameters.Therefore, you may want to change the settings. To access the Green
Channel Parameters, do the following:
1. Press the STATUS button. All horizontal LEDs light green indicating that all 5 knobs will adjust the
Green Channel Parameters.
2. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Tweed Gain.
3. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the Tweed Bass.
4. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Tweed Mids.
5. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to adjust the Tweed Treble.
6. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Tweed Level.
Adjust the Red Channel Parameters
Like the Tweed amp in the Green Channel, the Rectified amp in the Red Channel may need to be adjusted
to suit your personal taste. To access the Red Channel Parameters, do the following:
1. Press the STATUS button. All horizontal LEDs light red indicating that all 5 knobs will adjust the Red
Channel Parameters.
2. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Rectified Gain.
3. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the Rectified Bass.
4. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Rectified Mids.
5. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to adjust the Rectified Treble.
6. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Rectified Level.

Tutorial
Tune the Cabinets
As an option, you may also want to adjust the resonance for the American 2x12 and the British 4x12
Cabinets. To access the Cabinet tuning for both Red and Green Channels, do the following:
1. Press and hold the STATUS button until the display reads CAB TUNe (Cabinet Tuning).
2. Release the STATUS button and rotate the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the tuning for the Green
Cabinet (gtune º0).
3. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the tuning for the Red Cabinet (rtune º0).
4. Once the tuning of both Cabinets has been adjusted, press the EXIT button.
Warp the Green and Red Amps Together
When the Amps and Cabinets in our Green and Red Amps are dialed in to suit your taste, we can Warp
their characteristics together to create a new HyperModel™. To warp the green and red amps do the
following:
1. Press the STATUS button until its LED turns yellow.
2. Rotate the Parameter 3 (Warp) knob to blend the Amps and Cabinets in our Green and Red
Channels.
Save the HyperModel™
Now that we have designed our own Amp/Cabinet HyperModel™, we need to save it to one of the 9
User HyperModel™ locations. This allows us to use it in presets. To save the HyperModel, do the
following:
1. Press the AMP SAVE button until the display reads NEW AMP and the first letter (N) is flashing. For
this example, let’s name the HyperModel™ “Rectweed” (Rectified Tweed).
2. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select R as the first letter.
3. Press the RHYTHM button to select the next character in the display. Continue using the Data
Wheel and Rhythm button until the display reads RECTWeeD.
32
Tutorial
4. When the display reads RECTWeeD, press the AMP SAVE button again. Now we need to choose one
of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations.The alpha-numeric display should read EMPTY (Empty) and the
red numeric display should read U1 if this is the first HyperModel™ stored to your GNX3.
5. Press the AMP SAVE button again to save to this Amp location.The display briefly reads AMP SaVD
(Amp Saved) and then returns to the name of the selected preset.
Select Models for the Preset’s Channels
In the previous steps, we selected a Tweed amp model for the Green Channel and a Rectified amp model
for the Red Channel. Then we Warped the two together to create our HyperModel™. This
HyperModel™ is saved as an amp type that we named Rectweed, but it is not currently part of our
preset. In this example preset, we need to be able to toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and
our new HyperModel™. To do this we need to select the Acoustic model for the Green Channel and
Rectweed for the Red Channel of our preset, as follows:
1. The LED next to the STATUS button should be yellow. If it is not, press EXIT.
2. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the display reads ACOUSTic.This is the Green Channel Model for
the preset.
3. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display reads RECTWeeD (our new HyperModel™). This is the
Red Channel Model for the preset. This lets us toggle between these two sounds using the Amp
Footswitch (when Stompbox Mode is active).
Edit the Preset
The next step to creating our example preset involves the editing the preset. To edit the preset, do
the following:
1. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button. The Matrix LED in the Wah-Pickup row lights.
The display briefly reads EDIT and then cycles between the status of the Wah and Pickup
Simulator effects.
2. If the red display reads WAH On, press the STATUS button once to turn the Wah off (since our
example does not use a Wah).
33
Tutorial
Select the Pickup Type
In our example preset we use a single coil pickup, but want it to sound like a double coil humbucker.
With the Wah-Pickup LED lit, rotate the Parameter 4 knob until the display reads SC>Humb. This
makes a single coil sound like a Humbucker.
Turn the Compressor Off
We don’t use compression in our preset so, we need to turn the compressor off. To turn the
compressor off, do the following:
1. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button. The Compression LED lights and the display
shows the current status of the Compressor.
2. If the Compressor is on, press the STATUS button until the red display reads off (Of).
Turn the Whammy™/IPS/Talker™ Off
We don’t want Whammy™, IPS, or Talker™ effects in this preset. To turn these effects off, do the
following:
1. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button, and the Whammy/IPS/Talker™ LED is lit.
2. If the display indicates that either one of these effects is active, press the STATUS button until the
display reads off (Of).
Turn the Stompbox Modeling Off
To turn the Stompbox Modeling off for this preset, do the following:
1. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button until the Stompbox LED is lit.
2. If the display indicates that it is active, press the STATUS button until the display reads off (Of).
Adjust the EQ
The EQ for both the Acoustic Model (Green Channel) and the Rectweed HyperModel™ ( Red
34
Tutorial
Channel) can be adjusted individually. To adjust the EQ, do the following:
1. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button until the Equalizer LED lights. The GNX3 defaults
to the Green Channel EQ adjustments. Therefore, the display briefly reads EQ green .
2. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Red Channels Bass enhancement.
3. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the center frequency for the Mid-range.
4. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Mid-range enhancement.

7. Press the AMP Footswitch to select the Red Channel’s EQ adjustments.The display briefly reads
EQ red and the same knobs adjust the same EQ Parameters for the Green Channel.
Adjust the Noise Gate
For our example, we want our Noise Gate to open quickly with a relatively weak signal. This type of
gate uses the Silencer™ with a low threshold and short attack time. To create this type of Noise
Gate, do the following:
1. Press the AMP FOOTSWITCH to select the Red Amp Channel.
2. Press the EFFECT SELECT DOWN button and the Noise Gate’s LED lights.
3. If the display reads off (Of), press the STATUS button until the display reads on (On).
4. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the display reads SILeNCeR for the type of gate.
5. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to set the Threshold to 20 (this may need to be adjustment
depending upon your guitar).
6. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to set the Attack Time to 0 (fast attack).

5. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to set the Reverb Decay to 15.
6. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to set the Reverb Damping to 40.
7. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to set the Reverb Level to 30.
Store the Preset
The last step, is to store our changes to a User Preset. If we changed presets or turned the GNX3
off without storing these settings, it would forget what we had done and revert back to the original
preset. To store the preset, do the following:
1. Press STORE. The first letter in the display begins to flash. Since this is an example preset, let’s
name the preset examplE.
2. Rotate the DATA WHEEL until the flashing character in the display is an E.
3. Press the RHYTHM button once and the second character begins to flash.
4. Rotate the DATA WHEEL again until the flashing character is an X. Continue using the Rhythm
button to select the character location and the Data Wheel to change the characters.
5. Once the Display reads exampLE, press STORE again.The numbers in the red numeric display are
flashing.
6. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select 48 as the destination.
7. Press STORE once more to save the preset.
Congratulations! You have successfully created a Preset.

Recorder
Recorder
The GNX3 is equipped with an 8-track digital recorder. The recorder interface features standard recording
transport buttons,Track buttons, Drums button, Level/Pan button, Setup button, and Remain (time remaining)
button. Song and Time displays help you keep track of what song or loop you are working with and how
much recording time has elapsed or remains. The recorder functions are also mapped to the GNX3’s
footswitches allowing hands-free functionality to the recorder.
Recorder Panel
The recorder panel is divided into 7 basic sections:
1. DISPLAY – There are 2 different displays on the GNX3’s recorder panel
SONG – A Song is a group of recorded tracks that are combined to create songs. This display shows the
selected Song or Loop for recording and playback.
TIME – This display shows elapsed time of recorded material of the current Song when the recorder is
playing back tracks. When the REMAIN button is on, it also displays the amount of recording
time left in memory when the recorder is stopped.
2. TRANSPORT BUTTONS – The 6 transport buttons just below the displays are used for beginning the
record, playback, and search functions of recorded material. They include
Stop, Record, Play, Rewind, Fast Forward, and Undo.
3. TRACKS – A Track is an individual memory location in a song that you record audio to. The GNX3 has
eight individual tracks that can be recorded to.
4. DRUMS – Records drum audio tracks or syncs the Drums playback to tracks using the GNX3’s built-in
drum machine.
5. LEVEL/PAN – Accesses the playback level and pan controls for each track.
6. SETUP – Accesses setup options for each song including Input Select, Stereo Enable, Click Track,Tempo,
Pre-Roll, Song Repeat and more.
7. REMAIN – When Remain is turned on, the TIME display shows the remaining recording time available in
track minutes when the recorder is stopped. When the recorder is playing back tracks, it
shows the amount of time remaining in the current song.

Recorder
Recorder Setup
Before you begin recording your first song, you will want to become acquainted with the recorder Setup
functions. Setup functions include: Record Input, Stereo Record, Click Track,Tempo, Pre-Roll, Song Repeat,
Quantize, Record Quality, Auto Stop, Card>PC, and Memory Card Format . These functions dictate how the
recorder works for each song. Each song can have these functions setup in different ways so that you can
customize how the recorder works depending on your needs.
Record Input
The GNX3’s recorder has several input routing configurations that are used for getting your guitar, voice,
or external music into the recorder. Each of these is specifically designed for a specific recording purpose
and is outlined below with application tips.
Note: The guitar input is always active regardless of the selected input configuration with the exception
of Re-Amp.
GUITAR – Select this input when only guitar tracks are being recorded. The Mic and CD inputs are
disabled when this input configuration is selected.
G+CD In – Select this input for recording a source using the Jam-a-long/CD input. All stereo sources are
summed to mono using this input.
G>1 M>2 – This input records the guitar on one track and the mic input on another. This input records
mono guitar on the first track, and the mic input on the second track when both tracks are armed before
recording begins. This input is great for guitarist/singers who like to sing as they play. This input can also
be used for recording stereo signals into the GNX3’s recorder. By properly setting the Mic Level and
using a 1/4” to XLR impedance (DI) box, you can run one side of the stereo signal into the Guitar input
and the other side through the XLR Mic input. These two signals are recorded on separate tracks,
preserving the left/right stereo image. Once the tracks are recorded, you have to pan each of the tracks
left and right to hear them in stereo.
G+MICDDRY – Select this input when you want to record a dry, unprocessed vocal or acoustic instrument
into the GNX3’s recorder. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the same track(s) armed for
recording.
G+MICREV – This input routes the mic input through the reverb of the GNX3’s current preset. You can
modify reverb settings by editing the reverb parameters of the preset (see section Editing a Preset). If the
reverb is off in the current preset, the effect is not heard. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the
same track(s) armed for recording.
G+MICMOD – Select this input to route the mic input through the Chorus/Mod, Delay, and Reverb
modules of the GNX3’s current preset. You can modify the chorus/mod, delay, and reverb settings by
editing these parameters within the current preset (see section Editing a Preset). If these effects are
turned off in the current preset, the effects are not heard. Both the guitar and mic are recorded on the
same track(s) armed for recording.
G+MIC FX – Select this input to route the mic input through the all of the effects, including amp
modeling, of the GNX3’s current preset. You can modify the effect and amp modeling settings by editing
the parameters of the preset (see section Editing a Preset). Both guitar and mic are recorded on the same
track(s) armed for recording.
39
Recorder
GTR DRY – Select this input to route a dry, unprocessed guitar signal direct from the input to the
recorder while processed signal is heard at the GNX3’s outputs. This input is great for laying down a dry
guitar track that can be replayed through different amp models and presets using the Reamp input . You
can still monitor the guitar signal through all of the GNX3’s effects processing while recording.
GTR AMP – Select this input to tap the guitar signal right after the Noise Gate, and send it to the
recorder, while a processed signal is heard at the GNX3’s outputs. This mode is great for laying down a
dry guitar amp track without modulation, delay, or reverb effects but still monitoring these effects out the
GNX3’s outputs while recording.
REAMP 1-8 – Select one of these inputs to route the selected track back through the current GNX3’s
preset. This is great for guitar tracks that were recorded using GTR DRY or GTR AMP because you can
experiment by playing these tracks back through different amp models, effects, or entirely new presets.
This is exactly how professional recording engineers mix down guitar tracks. To select the input
configuration for recording, follow these steps:
1. Begin with the recorder stopped.
2. Press the SETUP button once. The GNX3’s main display reads recinput. The display flashes the
selected input configuration. Default from the factory is guitar.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to select one of the 10 different input configurations you want to use for
recording.
4.When finished, press EXIT.
NOTE: When the STOP button is pressed after using the reamp input configuration for
recording, the input configuration will automatically be reset to guitar.
Stereo Record
The recorder can be setup to automatically arm pairs of tracks for recording in stereo. When Stereo
Record enabled, each time you press the RECORD button or footswitch, the recorder will automatically
arm a pair of tracks to record to. Each track is automatically panned hard left and hard right respectively
to maintain a stereo image. Track 1 is paired with track 2, track 3 is paired with track 4, and so on. To
use Stereo Record, follow these steps:

4.When finished, press EXIT.
NOTE: Although the Tempo of a song can be changed after tracks have been recorded, it is
not advised that you do so because previously recorded tracks will not be
synchronized with tracks recorded after the change. The Recorder Tempo also
controls the Drum Machine tempo when recording or playing a virtual Drum track.
Pre-Roll
Pre-Roll is an amount of time you can have the recorder count off before actually beginning to recorder.
Use Click Track during Pre-Roll so that you can then get a feel for the tempo of the track or song you
are about to record. Pre-Roll can also be used as a cue, indicating when the very beginning of the song
starts. The GNX3’s Pre-Roll has 3 settings, 4, 8, or 16 counts. To setup the Pre-Roll function, follow these
steps:
1. Begin with the recorder stopped.
2. Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads pre-rollOf.

There are 3 different recording qualities the GNX3’s recorder can record in. The higher the selected
quality, the shorter the total amount of available recording time. CD is the highest quality the GNX3’s
recorder offers. It is a true 44.1kHz CD quality sample rate. CD quality limits recording time the most.
NORMAL is the default recording quality that doubles the amount of recording time that CD quality offers.
ECONOMY is the GNX3’s most economical recording quality. It has four times the amount of recording
time as CD quality but sacrifices frequency response in order to do so. To setup the song’s record
quality, follow these steps:
1. Begin with the recorder stopped.
2. Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads rec qlty. The display flashes the
selected recording quality of the current song. Default from the factory is Normal.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to select which recording quality you want to use for a song.
4.When finished, press EXIT .
NOTE: Once the recording quality is set and a track is recorded, the recording quality
cannot be changed unless all tracks or the entire song is deleted.

Recorder
Card>>PC - Preparing a Card for the Computer
The GNX3’s recorder uses a proprietary format when recording audio to an external memory card. In
order to access tracks created using the GNX3’s recorder on a computer, it is necessary to save these
files in a format that can be read by an external card reader connected to a PC. Here are the steps for
preparing the card for this purpose:
1. Once recording is complete, press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads
CARD>>PC. This is the card preparation menu. The RECORD button will begin flashing at this time.
2. To begin the preparation procedure, press the RECORD button. The GNX3’s main display reads
BUSY as the card is being checked. The TIME display on the recorder panel will begin counting
backwards from 100 indicating the procedure’s progress. The GNX3’s buttons and footswitches are
disabled during this procedure and the outputs will be muted.
3. When the procedure is complete, the TIME display reads 0. The GNX3’s main display then reads PC
READY followed by REMOVE.
The card should be removed and inserted into a card reader connected to the PC and the GNX3’s
recorder data is accessible.
WARNING: If any recorded material or Setup utilities are added, deleted, or modified on
the external memory card, the CARD>>PC procedure must be performed before removing
the card from the GNX3 and inserting it into an external card reader. If this procedure is
not performed, recorded data may be lost.
Erase
To quickly erase all recorded data from either internal or external memory, the GNX3’s setup menu
provides an erase function. If a memory card is not present in the memory card slot, the erase function
erases the GNX3’s internal recording memory. If a card is present, the external memory card is only
erased. To erase either internal or external memory, follow these steps:
1. Press the SETUP button until the display reads erase?. The recorder’s RECORD button begins
flashing prompting the user to press it to begin erasing.
2. Press the RECORD button. The display reads SURE?, prompting the user that the next press will
begin the memory erase procedure. To abort formatting, press EXIT.
3. Pressing the RECORD button a second time to begin the formatting procedure. The GNX3’s main
display reads erasing during this time. The GNX3’s buttons and footswitches are disabled during
this procedure.
4.When the recording memory is completely erased, the display shows reading, indicating the
GNX3 is reading the erased memory. The GNX3 returns to the preset screen where you can
begin recording.
Using External SmartMedia™ Memory Cards
The GNX3 recorder’s memory can be increased by using an optional external SmartMedia™ memory card.
On the back panel is a card slot for adding memory. The GNX3 supports memory cards from 16Meg to
128Meg in size. The table below shows the amount of record time each of the currently available cards will
provide:

To use an external memory card with the GNX3, follow these steps:
1. Place the card into the MEMORY CARD slot with the contacts facing down.
When a memory card is inserted into a GNX3 for the first time, it needs to be formatted by the GNX3 in
order to use it. To format the card, do the following:
1. Once a card has been inserted into the GNX3’s Memory Card slot, the display reads format? and the
RECORD button begins flashing.
2. Press the RECORD button once and the display asks if you are sure? you want to format.
3. Press the RECORD button again to begin formatting the card. The GNX3’s functions are temporarily
disabled during the card formatting process. Depending on the memory card size, this process may take
several minutes.
4. When formatting is complete, the display reads reading, indicating the GNX3 is reading the newly
formatted card. The GNX3 returns to the preset screen indicating the card is now ready for recording.
NOTE: Once you have recorded onto an external card, you must run the Card>>PC utility
explained in the Recorder Setup section on page 45 if you plan to use the card with an
external card reader connected to a computer. Failure to do so can result in recorded
material being lost
Memory Card/Computer File Format
Once the card has been properly prepared (Preparing Card for Computer) for the computer using the card
preparation routine in the GNX3’s recorder setup menu, you can now use a computer’s memory card reader
to access these files. These files can be copied between the memory card and your computer using standard
drag and drop routines you are familiar with. When plugging a card into a card reader, you can open it up on
your computer screen and see each of the song file folders. The audio track files are found inside each of the
song folders.
The GNX3’s uses a specific song and track file naming convention that needs to be maintained when
exchanging files with a computer. When a card is inserted into a card reader, the songs appear as folders
named SONG01, SONG02, etc… The number of songs can change depending on how many songs or loops
are saved on the memory card. Inside each of the song folders are the separate audio tracks which will be
named TRAK01.wav,TRAK02.wav, up to TRAK08.wav. It is important that each song’s name starts with
SONGXX (XX = song number) with no spaces, and each audio track is named TRAK01-TRAK08 with a .wav
extension in order for the GNX3 to recognize these files. You can rename tracks and songs while viewing
them in the computer with some restrictions. Here are some naming formats that are acceptable.
The following names are acceptable for song folders:
46
Recorder
Song01_rock
song01 rock
SONG01 rock
Song01rock
The following names are not acceptable for song folders:
Song_01
Song 01
Song 1
The following names are acceptable for individual audio track files:
Trak01_solo.wav
trak03lead.wav
trak04 rhythm.wav
TRAK05 bass.wav
The following names are not acceptable for audio track files:
TRAK_01
Track 01
track 1
It is possible to have duplicate songs or tracks when renaming them in the computer. For instance,
song01_rock and song01_jazz are really the same name to the GNX3 as are trak01_solo.wav and
trak01_solo2.wav. The GNX3 only looks at the first six characters to identify the song and track
information. The remainder of the name is not recognized but is provided for the purpose of identifying song
and track names in your file system. There can only be a maximum of 99 songs on a memory card, and a
maximum number of 8 tracks in each song.
47
Recorder
Recording Time
The GNX3 is equipped with 16Meg of on-board recording memory. This gives you six total track minutes
available for recording in Normal Record Quality (three minutes in CD Record Quality and 12 minutes in
Economy Record Quality). Therefore, you can record one track for six minutes, two tracks for 3 minutes,
and so forth using Normal Quality . The number of songs that can be in memory is dependent on the total
amount of record time. For example, with an optional 128M Smart Media® card, the GNX3 has a total of 48
Normal quality track minutes available. This would be the equivalent of two – 3 minute 8-track songs or four
– 3 minute 4-track songs.
Using the GNX3’s Recorder Panel for Recording
Recording a Track
When the GNX3 is first powered up, the recorder is immediately ready to use. The Song display reads 1,
indicating the first song is selected to record. To begin recording a track, follow these steps:
1. Press the RECORD button. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed for
recording, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins counting off the
recording time.
2. Once recording is complete, press the STOP button. This stops the recording process. The display
reads saving as the track is being saved to memory. The TIME display shows the elapsed time used,
and the TRACK 1 button automatically lights green indicating it is enabled for playback.
NOTE: Pressing the RECORD button when a track is not armed for recording will force the
GNX3’s recorder to arm and begin recording on the next empty track of a song
(next pair of tracks when Stereo Record is enabled). You may arm any track(s) for
recording prior to pressing RECORD.
48
Recorder
Using the UNDO Button to Erase a Track
Every track you record may not be a take you want to keep. The GNX3’s recorder features an UNDO
button, that erases the contents of a track. You can Undo a track even while recording is in progress,
thus eliminating having to stop and start all the recording procedures again.
WARNING: Deleting a track is permanent and once it is deleted it cannot be retrieved.
Please use the UNDO button with caution.
The following steps explain how Undo works.
Using Undo While the Recorder is Stopped
If you stopped the recorder and decided you were unhappy with the last take, you can Undo (erase)
the track information.To undo the last track you recorded, follow these steps:
1. Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display reads del trkx, indicating the last
recorded track will be deleted. If you want to delete a different track, press the track button you
want to delete.
2. Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to delete the track. If the UNDO button is not
pressed a second time within 3 seconds of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request
and returns to its normal stopped state.
Using Undo While Recording is in Progress
You can Undo a track while recording is in progress. This eliminates having to stop the recorder,
rewinding, and having to start over. To undo the track you are currently recording on, follow these
steps:
1. Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display reads rerecord.
2. Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to start re-recording. The display reads
undodone and the recorder returns to the beginning of the song and resumes recording on the
same track. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds of the first press, the
recorder ignores the undo request and recording continues unaffected.
If you don’t want to have the recorder automatically start re-recording when using UNDO, press the
STOP button to stop recording before using the UNDO function.
49
Recorder
Using Undo While Playback is in Progress
You can also Undo a track while playback is in progress. This essentially deletes the track recorded to
last. To undo the track while playback is in progress, follow these steps:
1. Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display reads del trkx. If you want to delete a
different track, press the track button you want deleted.
2. Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to delete the track. The recorder deletes this
track and continues the song playback. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds
of the first press, the recorder ignores the undo request and playback continues unaffected.
Playing Back a Recorded Track
After a track is recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song, press
PLAY. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the very beginning. If you want
to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other than the end of the song,
follow these steps:
1
00 00
1. Begin with the Recorder stopped.
2. Press the REWIND button once to move to the beginning of the song. Press and hold the rewind or
fast forward buttons to quickly move back and forth through the track until it is released.
3. Press the PLAY button. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (the track
button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.
Setting Track Playback Levels and Panning
After a track has been recorded, you can set the pan and playback level for each track. This is done using
the LEVEL / PAN button. This feature is most useful if done while the recording is playing back so you
can hear the changes as they are being made. To set level and pan controls for each track, follow these
steps:
Setting each track’s playback level:
1. Press the REWIND button once to return the song to the beginning.
2. Place any track(s) you want to playback by pressing their TRACK buttons until they are lit green.
50
Recorder
3. Press the PLAY button. Playback of the tracks begins.
4.To adjust the playback level of the tracks, press the LEVEL / PAN button once. It lights green.
5. Press any track button that is playing back. It flashes green. The main display reads tkx levl 50
(X = track number).
6.Turn the DATA WHEEL to adjust this track’s playback level.
7. Select other tracks and adjust their playback level by repeating steps 5 and 6.
8. Press the LEVEL / PAN button twice to exit.
Setting each track’s pan:
1. Press the LEVEL / PAN button twice. It lights green and the main display reads tkx cntr 0
(X=track number).
2.Turn the DATA WHEEL to the left to pan the track to the left in the stereo field (tkx left).
Turn the DATA WHEEL to the right to pan the track to the right (tkx rght).
3. Select other tracks and adjust their pan position by pressing the track button and repeating step 2.
4. Press the LEVEL / PAN button again to exit.
Recording Multiple Tracks
After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks that play along with it. Previously
recorded track(s) should already be in play mode and are ready for monitoring while you record your
new track. To record a new track with a previously recorded track, follow these steps:
1. Press the RECORD button. The next available track for recording automatically lights red, indicating it
is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track from the beginning of the song.
The TIME display begins counting off the recording time. If Autostop is turned on, the recorder will
automatically stop when the longest track playing back is finished. If Autostop is turned off, go to step
2.
2.When recording is complete, press the STOP button.
Changing Track Status
Each recorded track can be in 1 of 4 states; playback, record, merge, or off. Tracks with recorded material
can be turned on for playback (TRACK button is lit green), armed for recording (TRACK button is
flashing red), armed for merging other recorded tracks to it (TRACK button is flashing yellow) or turned
off (button is not lit). If a track does not have material recorded on it, it can only be enabled for recording
or turned off. To change the status of a track, do the following:
51
Recorder
1. Press any TRACK button repeatedly until it lights green, flashes red, or flashes yellow.
If the button lights green, there is recorded material present. If the RECORD or PLAY button is pressed
the material is played back. If the button light flashes red, and the RECORD button is pressed (the
button light is a solid red) it is recorded on. If the light flashes yellow, it merges armed tracks for
playback, including recorded material already present on this track.
NOTE: If a TRACK is placed in record and the PLAY button is pressed, it will not be
recorded on but the track button will remain flashing red. All tracks with material
recorded on them playback their material, even if their button is flashing red. If the
RECORD button is then pressed during playback, tracks armed for recording are
recorded on.
Punching In / Punching Out
There may be times you want to replace a track section in the middle of a song. Rather than recording
on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you can “punch in” the
phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track. To punch in record, follow these steps:
1.Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is flashing red).
2. Press the PLAY button. All tracks that are armed for playback begin playing, and the TRACK button
armed for recording continues flashing red.
3.When you reach the point in the playback that you want the recording to begin, press the RECORD
button. The TRACK button armed for recording lights red and recording begins on this track at this
point.
4.When you are finished recording, press the RECORD button again to disable the track armed for
recording and continue listening to the playback.
Bouncing/Merging Tracks
Once you have recorded several tracks, you may want to combine them onto a single track or pair of
tracks to free up recording memory. This is done using the recorder’s Merge function. Merging is
essentially the same as bouncing tracks as you would on old analog 4 and 8-track tape recorders, only
without the signal degradation. You can merge playback tracks with recorded tracks and retain the
recorded material on the tracks you are merging to. This means you don’t need empty tracks to merge
to if all tracks have recorded material on them.
Merging tracks is irreversible to the tracks that are merged to. It is wise to make sure your individual
track levels and pans are set prior to merging to tracks with recorded material present, as once tracks
are merged, the individual track information cannot be adjusted. To merge recorded tracks, follow these
steps:
1. Begin with the recorder stopped.
2. Arm the track(s) you want to merge for playback (TRACK buttons lit flashing green).
3.. Press the TRACK button you want to merge to until it begins flashing yellow. Only a maximum of
two tracks at a time can be selected to merge to.
4.. Press the RECORD button. The recorder begins merging the audio from the tracks armed for
playback onto the tracks armed for merge. Once merging has begun, it cannot be stopped until
playback through the entire song is completed.
52
Recorder
Drums Track
The GNX3’s built-in drum machine is not only a great practice tool but can actually be used for song
creation as well. Using the Drums button located in the recorder panel, you can either sync the drum
machine with your other recorded audio tracks, or record the drum machine patterns to any of the
recorder’s tracks.
Syncing Drums to Songs
The GNX3’s drum machine can by synced to recorded tracks when you first begin recording a song,
essentially creating a ‘virtual’ drum track that plays back with your recorded tracks. When the Drums
button is armed for playback (button is lit green), the GNX3 begins playing the drum machine using
the pattern you have selected when either the RECORD or PLAY button is pressed. The drums play
at the tempo designated in the recorder Setup utility for the current song. Rather than using a track
to record drums on, the recorder starts the Drum machine and it plays for the length of the song.
To sync the GNX3’s drum machine to the current song, follow these steps:
1. Begin with the Recorder stopped.
2. Press the DRUMS button in the upper right control panel area on the GNX3. This enables the
Drums playback.
3. Press the PATTERN button.
4. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the pattern you want to record.
5. Press the DRUMS button again to stop the drums.
6. Press the DRUMS track button on the recorder panel once. It lights green.
7.. Press the PLAY button. The drum machine begins playing in sync from the beginning of the song
at the tempo designated in the Setup utility.
8.When finished, press the STOP button.
The recorder did not actually record an audio track of the drums, it just recorded an event that
selects the tempo for the current song. This file does not appear as a separate .wav file in the songs
folder on the Smart Media card when it is viewed using a computer but is part of the setup file that
accompanies each song.
Recording Drum Machine Tracks
You may also want to record the GNX3’s drum machine as an actual audio track. Recording the
drums lets you process the drums track through any of the GNX3’s effects via the Re-amp input
mode. To record the GNX3’s drum machine as an audio track, follow these steps:
1. Begin with the Recorder stopped.
2. Press the DRUMS button in the upper right control panel area on the GNX3. This enables the
Drums playback.
3. Press the PATTERN button.
4. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the pattern, tempo, and level you want to record.
5. Press the DRUMS button again to stop the drums.
4. Press the DRUMS track button on the recorder panel until it lights flashing red.
5. Press the RECORD button. The next available track for recording arms for recording. The drum
machine begins playing at the same time, and is recorded on the armed track.
6.When finished, press the STOP button.
53
Recorder
Recording the Mic Input
The GNX3 is equipped with a mic input that is used for recording vocals or acoustic instruments. In
order to get the best level recorded, it is necessary to setup the mic input gain properly. To setup the
input gain for the mic, follow these steps:
1. Connect a microphone to the MIC INPUT on the rear panel.
2. Begin singing or playing the instrument into the mic.
3.Turn the MIC LEVEL control on the rear panel clockwise for more gain and counter-clockwise for
less gain until the CLIP LED next to the GNX3’s main display only flashes occasionally. If it is flashing
often or solid red, turn down the gain. If the CLIP LED doesn’t flash, turn up the gain until it does flash
occasionally.
Once the mic input gain is set properly, you need to select one of the mic input configurations in the
recorder Setup utility. To select a mic input configuration, follow these steps:
1. Press the SETUP button once on the recorder panel. The display reads recinput and then begins
flashing the selected input configuration.
2. Use the DATA WHEEL to select one of the mic input configurations. See page 39 for the GNX3’s
recorder input configurations and their descriptions.
3.When finished, press EXIT.
Now you can begin recording the mic input like any other track using the steps outlined in the Recording
a Track section.
Recorder Output Configuration
The GNX3’s digital and analog outputs can be configured in a number ways to best utilize the recorder
and guitar processor both independently and simultaneously. If you plan on using the guitar processing
along with playback of the recorder, there are several options for routing the guitar processor and the
recorder signals independently of each other. This works well when either running directly into a mixer
or using a guitar amp and mixer together. To set the Output configuration, follow these steps.
1. Press the UTILITY button.
2. Press the MODE or DRUMS button until the display reads anlg out. The default configuration
from the factory is Stereo.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to select mono, stereo, g>l r>r, mono gtr, or ster gtr. Stereo and
Mono output configurations have both recorder and guitar processor mixed together at both the
analog and digital outputs while g>l r>r configures the left and right analog outputs as a mono guitar
processor out and a mono recorder out respectively. Mono gtr and ster gtr configurations send
guitar processor signal only out the GNX3’s analog outputs.
The S/PDIF digital output can also be configured in a variety of ways that best suit your recording or
performance situation. To setup the S/PDIF options, follow these steps:
1. Press the UTILITY button.
2. Press either the MODE or DRUMS button until the display reads DIGI OUT. The default
configuration from the factory is GTR+REC. This configuration sends both guitar processor and
recorder output to the S/PDIF output.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to select RECORDER if only the recorder output is what you want sent to the
54
Recorder
S/PDIF output. Configurations 2 and 3 are for the Dry Track setup (see the section on Digital Output
setup for more on Dry Track).
4. Press the EXIT button.
Working with Songs and Loops
A Song and a Loop are a group of recorded tracks. The GNX3’s recorder has 99 songs available to record
to as recording memory allows. With an optional 128M Smart Media™ card, for example the GNX3 has a
total of 48 Normal quality track minutes available. This would be the equivalent of four 3-minute, 4-track
songs, leaving no memory available for songs 5-99. Loops, however, are generally shorter in length so more
loops could be saved than songs in the same amount of memory.
Selecting Songs and Loops
Selecting songs on the GNX3’s recorder is easy. To select songs, follow these steps:
1. Press the STOP button (if the recorder isn’t already stopped).
2. Use the F FWD or REWIND buttons to select the next or previous song. The GNX3’s main display
shows reading and the number in the SONG display changes as the new song is selected. The TIME
display shows the selected song’s length.
NOTE: You can also use the DOWN and UP footswitches to select songs when Recorder
mode is active.
Using the GNX3’s Footswitches for Recording
The GNX3’s footswitches can perform different functions depending on what state they are in: Bank Mode,
Stompbox Mode, Learn-a-lick, and Recorder Mode. When Recorder mode is selected, the UP/DOWN
footswitches are used to select next and previous Songs. The 5 numbered footswitches are used for Rewind,
Undo, Stop, Record, and Play. To select the Recorder mode for using the footswitches to record, press the 4
and 5 footswitches simultaneously until the DOWN/UP footswitches are lit red. This turns your GNX3’s
pedalboard into a hands-free remote control for the recorder.
Recording a Track
To begin recording a track using the footswitches, follow these steps:
1. Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to
record, and the recorder begins recording on the track. The TIME display begins counting off the
recording time.
2. Once recording is completed, press the STOP footswitch. This stops the recording process, and the
track is saved. The TIME display shows the elapsed time used and the TRACK 1 button is lit green
indicating it is now enabled for playback.
55
Recorder
Playing Back a Recorded Track
After a track is recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song, press
PLAY. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the very beginning. If you want
to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other than the end of the song,
follow these steps:
1. Begin with the Recorder stopped.
2. Press the REWIND footswitch. Press and hold this button to slowly move back through the track
until it is released.
3. Press the PLAY footswitch. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (the track
button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.
Recording Multiple Tracks
After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks that play along with it. To create a
monitoring source while recording new tracks, play the previously recorded track(s). To record a new
track with a previously recorded track, follow these steps:
1. Press the RECORD footswitch. The next available track for recording automatically lights red,
indicating it is armed to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track from the beginning of
the song. The TIME display begins counting off the recording time. If Autostop is turned on, the
recorder will automatically stop when the longest track playing back is finished. If Autostop is turned
off, go to step 2.
2.When recording is complete, press the STOP footswitch.
Punching In / Punching Out
There may be times you want to replace a track section in the middle of a song. Rather than recording
on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you can “punch in” the
phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track. To punch in record, follow these steps:
1. Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is lit flashing red).
2. Press the PLAY footswitch. Tracks that are armed for playback begin playing, and the TRACK button
armed for recording remains flashing red.
3.When you reach the point in the playback that you want the recording to begin, press the RECORD
footswitch. The TRACK button armed for recording lights solid red and recording begins on this track
at this point.
4.When you are finished recording, press the PLAY footswitch to continue listening to playback and
disable the track armed for recording, or press the STOP footswitch to stop.
56
Recorder
Using the GNX3’s JamMan Delay Looper
The GNX3’s recorder also doubles as a JamMan™ Delay Looper. The JamMan is used to create a recording
loop that you can playback with. The JamMan functions are accessed using the GNX3’s footswitches while
they are in Recorder mode. The only difference between regular multi-track recording and looping is the way
you use the footswitches after recording your first track.
When recording multiple tracks for a song, you would normally record your first track, stop, rewind, and then
set up for recording your overdub track. The GNX3’s footswitches provide hands-off operation for these
functions. But when you want to create loops on the fly that you can layer, you want the transition from the
first take to the second and so on to be seamless.
To use the JamMan feature of the GNX3 you must first have the footswitches in Recorder mode. To do this,
press the 4 and 5 footswitches simultaneously until the DOWN/UP footswitches are lit red. If you have
songs already in memory, you must select a new Song to record your loop to. To select a new song, press
the UP footswitch. A new song is defined as a song that has no previously recorded material present on any
of its tracks.
You are now ready to begin recording a loop.
Recording a Loop
Recording a loop is no different than doing multi-track recordings. Here are the steps for creating a loop:
1. Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button automatically lights red, indicating it is armed to
record, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins counting off the
recording time.
2. Just as you reach the end of your take, press the PLAY footswitch. This sets the loop length and
places TRACK 1 into playback. You can listen to what you just recorded, and the TRACK 2 button is
flashing red indicating it is now armed and ready to begin recording on.
NOTE: If the RECORD footswitch is pressed instead of the PLAY footswitch after recording the first
pass, recording is stopped and the loop’s length is set. The TRACK 1 button is armed for record (flashing
red), and you hear the playback of track 1. If you decide you want to add material to track 1 rather than
record on a new track, press the RECORD footswitch record on this track again. The new material is
added to existing recorded material. Until the PLAY footswitch is pressed, only track 1 is available to
record on.
Recording Layered Overdubs to your Loop
Adding overdubbed layers to your first loop is easy. Since TRACK 2 is already armed for recording, press
the RECORD footswitch when you are ready to begin recording your overdub. To add overdubs to the
current loop, follow these steps:
1. Press the RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 2 button lights solid red and begins recording on this
track.
2.When finished, you can press PLAY to stage the next track for recording or press RECORD to begin
adding your next overdub.
57
Recorder
If at anytime you are not satisfied with your current take while recording overdubs with your original
loop, you can undo it by pressing the UNDO footswitch. This erases the contents of a track and lets you
proceed with trying another take without having to stop. To use the UNDO function while recording a
loop, follow these steps:
1. Press the UNDO button once. The GNX3’s main display reads rerecord.
2. Press the UNDO button again within 3 seconds to start re-recording. The display reads
undodone and the recorder returns to the beginning of the song and resumes recording on the
same track. If the UNDO button is not pressed again within 3 seconds of the first press, the
recorder ignores the undo request and recording continues unaffected.
Using Quantize for Seamless Loops
When recording loops, it is important that you set the loop length exactly so that your loop is seamless
from finish to start. Sometimes our timing may not be perfect when pressing the PLAY footswitch to set
the length. The GNX3 provides a Quantize feature that corrects these timing problems to the nearest
eighth note. Quantize looks at the point where you pressed the PLAY footswitch in relation to the
tempo you are using for your loop. Lets say you were recording a four second loop and you pressed the
PLAY footswitch just a little late. No problem, with Quantize enabled, the looper will automatically cut
off the extra recording and give you a perfect four second loop. To enable the Quantize feature, follow
these steps:
1. Begin with the recorder stopped by pressing the STOP button.
2. Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads: quantize.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to turn the Quantize feature on and off. Quantize only affects delay loops
and will not affect songs.
4. Press the EXIT button.
Using the FS300 for Recorder Functions
The GNX3 is equipped with a footswitch jack that allows you to connect an optional FS300 for controlling
the GNX3’s recorder. This 3-button footswitch features functions for STOP/UNDO (switch A), RECORD
(switch B), and PLAY (switch C). The FS300 is an ideal companion for JamMan users as it allows you to
leave your GNX3 footswitches setup for changing presets or switching amp channels and effects on and off
while the FS300 is used for both recording songs and creating loops.

Recording a Track
To begin recording a track using the FS300 footswitches, follow these steps:
1. Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button will automatically light red, which will arm it
to record, and the recorder will begin recording on this track. The TIME display will begin counting off
the recording time.
2. Once recording is completed, press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch. This stops the recording
process, and saves the track. The TIME display will show the elapsed time used and the TRACK 1
button will be lit green indicating it is now enabled for playback.
Playing Back a Recorded Track
After a track has been recorded, playing it back is simple. If you are at the end of the track or the song,
press the C-PLAY footswitch. The recorder automatically begins playing back the track/song from the
very beginning. If you want to start playback at the beginning of a track or song but are someplace other
than the end of the song, follow these steps:
1. Press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch twice. This will rewind to the beginning of the current song.
2. Press the C-PLAY footswitch. The newly recorded track is automatically armed in PLAY status (track
button is lit green) and the track begins playing back.
Recording Multiple Tracks
After a track has been recorded, you may want to record other tracks (overdub) that will play along with
it. You will want to play the previously recorded track(s) as a monitoring source while recording new
tracks. To overdub a new track with previously recorded tracks do the following:
1. Return the Song to the beginning by pressing the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch twice.
2. Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The next available track for recording will automatically light red,
which arms it to record, and the recorder begins recording on this track. The TIME display begins
counting off the recording time.
3.When recording is complete, press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch.
Punching In / Punching Out
There may be times you will want to record in the middle of a song rather than from the very beginning.
Rather than recording on a new track at the very beginning and wasting recording time with silence, you
will want to “punch in” the phrase you want to record at a certain point on the track and then punch
out. To punch in record do the following:
1. Arm the track you want to punch in record on (TRACK button is flashing red).
2. Press the C-PLAY footswitch. Any tracks that are armed for playback will begin playing and the
TRACK button armed for recording will remain flashing red.
3.When you reach the point in the playback that you want the recording to begin, press the BRECORD footswitch. The TRACK button armed for recording will now light solid red and recording
will now begin on this track at this point.
4.When you are finished recording, press the C-PLAY footswitch to continue listening to playback and
disable the track armed for recording, or press the A-STOP/UNDO footswitch to stop.

Using the FS300 for Looping
Recording a Loop
To begin recording a loop is no different than when you are doing multi-track recording. You must begin
with a new song in order to create a loop. Press the GNX3’s UP footswitch (the GNX3’s footswitches
must be in recorder mode first) or the F FWD button to select a new song that has not been recorded
on . Here are the steps for creating a loop:
1. Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 1 button will automatically light red, which will arm it
to record, and the recorder will begin recording on this track. The TIME display will begin counting off
the recording time.
2. Just as you reach the end of your take, press the C-PLAY footswitch. This will set the loop length and
place TRACK 1 into playback. You will now begin hearing what you just recorded. You will now see
that the TRACK 2 button is flashing red meaning it is now armed and ready to begin recording on.
You have just successfully recorded you first loop and are now ready to start layering overdubs.
NOTE: If the RECORD footswitch is pressed instead of the PLAY footswitch after recording
the first pass, recording will stop and the loop’s length will be set. The TRACK 1
button will now be armed for record (flashing red). You will begin hearing playback
of track 1 at this time. If you decide you want to add material to track 1 rather
than recording on a new track, press the RECORD footswitch again to enable
recording on this track again. The new material will now be added to existing
recorded material. Until the PLAY footswitch is pressed, only track 1 will be
available to record on.
Recording Layered Overdubs to your Loop
To begin adding overdubbed layers to your first loop is easy. Since TRACK 2 is already armed for
recording, press the RECORD footswitch when you are ready to begin recording your overdub.
1. Press the B-RECORD footswitch. The TRACK 2 button will light solid red and will begin recording
on this track.
2.When finished, you can press C-PLAY to arm the next track for recording or just press B-RECORD
to begin adding your next overdub.
If at anytime you are not satisfied with your current take, you can undo it by pressing and holding the ASTOP/UNDO footswitch. This will erase the last recorded track and let you proceed with trying
another take without having to stop.
Using Quantize for Seamless Loops
When recording loops using the GNX3’s click track or drum machine, it is important that you set the
loop length exactly so that your loop is seamless from finish to start. Sometimes our timing may not be
perfect when pressing the PLAY footswitch to set the length. The GNX3 provides a Quantize feature
that corrects these timing problems to the nearest eighth note. Quantize looks at the point where you

pressed the PLAY footswitch in relation to the tempo you are using for your loop. Lets say you were
recording a four second loop and you pressed the PLAY footswitch just a little late. No problem, with
Quantize enabled, the looper will automatically cut off the extra recording and give you a perfect four
second loop. Same goes for if you pressed the PLAY footswitch a little early. Quantize will push out the
length and make it four seconds. To enable the Quantize feature, follow these steps:
1. Start with the recorder stopped by pressing the STOP button.
2. Press the SETUP button until the GNX3’s main display reads: quantize.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to turn the Quantize feature on or off. Quantize only affects delay loops and
will not affect songs.
4. Press the EXIT button.
Now when you record the first loop, your loop will be accurately timed to the nearest quarter note even
if your footswitch timing was just a bit off.

Other Functions
Expression Assign
The GNX3 has several options for real-time control over effects parameters in each of its presets.
Parameters can be modified during performance both manually and automatically by several methods. These
are referred to as expression controllers and include the following: the built-in Expression Pedal, Internal
LFOs (low frequency oscillators), and the Control Footswitch. Each of these controllers can be programmed
specifically for each preset, giving you many options for manipulating each in a different manner.
Expression Pedal
The Expression Pedal on the GNX3 can control up to 3 parameters in real time. Each parameter assigned
to the Expression Pedal can have specific ranges of how much the parameter is controlled by using the
minimum and maximum controls. The GNX3’s Expression Pedal includes DigiTech’s exclusive V-Switch.
The V-Switch lets you switch the Expression Pedal assignment on the fly. Apply extra pressure to the toe
of the Expression Pedal to engage the V-Switch, and the Expression Pedal switches between the assigned
parameter and the Wah. The sensitivity or amount of pressure required to engage the V-Switch can be
adjusted to suit your personal taste (or weight of your foot). See page 66 for the V-Switch Sensitivity
adjustment procedure.
The procedure for assigning a parameter to the Expression Pedal is as follows:
1. Press the Effect Select button until the Exp Assign row has been selected.
2. Press the Status button until the display reads exp pdl1 (Expression Pedal Link 1), exp pdl2
(Expression Pedal Link 2), or exp pdl3 (Expression Pedal Link 3), depending upon which assignment
you want to use or the number of parameters you intend to assign.The display alternates between the
Expression Pedal selection and the assigned parameter.
3. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the parameter appears in the display. See the Expression Parameter
Assignment List on page 38 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.
4. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the parameter reaches with the Expression
Pedal in the toe up position (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
5. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the parameter reaches with the Expression
Pedal in the toe down position (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
6. Store your Expression Pedal assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the
storing procedure.
LFOs
The GNX3 includes two low frequency oscillators (LFO1 and LFO2) that can be assigned to the
Expression Pedal parameters. A low frequency oscillator automatically varies the value of the assigned
parameter at a steady rate. A minimum and maximum value can be assigned. For instance: if the Amp
Gain was assigned to LFO1, and the minimum value was set at 1 and the maximum value was set at 99,
the GNX3 would automatically sweep the amount of distortion from clean to distorted and back to
clean. Individual LFO speeds can also be assigned. In the previous example, the LFO speed would
determine the length of time it took the LFO to sweep from the clean to the distorted sound. The
procedure for assigning the LFOs in the GNX3 is as follows:
1. Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.
2. Press the STATUS button to assign LFO1 (LFO 1) or LFO2 (LFO 2).
3. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the Parameter is displayed. See the Expression Parameter
Assignment list on page 63 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.
4. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter reaches at the
62

bottom turn around point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
5. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter reaches at the top
turn around point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
6. Rotate the Parameter 4 knob to select the speed that the LFO oscillates from the minimum to the
maximum values. LFO speed ranges from (.O5 HZ) to 10 Hz (1ºO HZ).
7. Rotate the Parameter 5 knob to select the waveform the LFO oscillates on. Your choices include:
triangle (Triangle) - a smooth rise and fall, but abrupt turn around in oscillation.
SINE (Sine) - a smooth rise, fall, and turn around in oscillation.
SQUARE (Square) - an abrupt rise, fall, and turn around in oscillation.
8. Store your LFO assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the storing
procedure.
Amp Footswitch
From the factory, the Amp Footswitch switches between the Green and the Red Amp Channels. However,
the GNX3 lets you select the Amp Footswitch function. The procedure for assigning the function of the
Amp Footswitch is as follows:
1. Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.
2. Press the STATUS button until the display reads AMP FS (Amp Footswitch).
3. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob to select the Amp Footswitch function. Your choices include:
G-R - Switches between the Green and Red Amp Channels.
G-Y - Switches between the Green and Yellow (Warped) Channels.
R-Y - Switches between the Red and Yellow (Warped) Channels.
G-R-Y - Switches between the Green, Red, and Yellow (Warped) Channels.
4. Store your Amp Footswitch assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on the
storing.
Control Footswitch
When using the GNX3 in Stompbox mode, FOOTSWITCH 5 becomes a Control Footswitch. This
provides even more real-time expressive control during performance when used in conjunction with the
Expression pedal. Up to three 3 parameters can be controlled between two different values in each
preset using the Control footswitch. The Control footswitch can function in two different ways, as a
Toggle footswitch or as a Momentary footswitch.
When using the Toggle function, the Control footswitch behaves like a normal footswitch in that it
switches to and ON state when pressed once and then an OFF state when pressed again. This type of
function is useful when you want to use it for turning effects like the Compressor or Whammy on and
off. It can also be used to toggle between two different parameter settings, for instance, a delay level of
10 or a Delay level of 50.
When using the Momentary function, the Control footswitch switches ON as long as it is being pressed,
and turns OFF when it is released. Experimenting with different parameters can produce some very
interesting results. For instance, you can assign Pitch Shift amount and have your guitar shift from a fifth
above when the Control footswitch is pressed and return to normal pitch when it is released. The
procedure for assigning the Control footswitch in the GNX3 is as follows:
1. Press either EFFECT SELECT button until the Exp Assign row is selected.
2. Press the STATUS button until Control footswitch assignment #1 is displayed, ctrl1 fs (Pressing
the STATUS button again accesses assignments #2 and #3).
63
Other Functions
3. Rotate the Parameter 1 knob until the Parameter is displayed. See the Expression Parameter
Assignment list on page 63 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.
4. Rotate the Parameter 2 knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter reaches when the
Control footswitch is turned off (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
5. Rotate the Parameter 3 knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter reaches when the
Control footswitch is turned on (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
6.While on Control footswitch assignment #1 only, rotate the Parameter 4 knob to select the type of
footswitch function you want it to perform,Toggle, toggle, or Momentary, momentary.
7. Store the assignment to your preset. See page 17 for more information on storing.

Other Functions
Analog Output Configuration
The GNX3’s analog outputs can be configured several different ways, giving you a variety of signal routing
possibilities for both recording and performing applications. The available analog output configurations
are: mono (guitar processor and recorder output summed to mono) stereo (guitar processor and
recorder output in stereo), g>l r>r (guitar left output, recorder right output), mono gtr (Mono
output, guitar processor only), and ster gtr (Stereo output, guitar processor only).
When using either Mono or Stereo, both the GNX3’s guitar processing and the recorder’s outputs are
mixed together at the analog outputs. When Guitar g>l r>r (guitar left output, recorder right output)
is selected, the GNX3’s guitar processing is summed to mono and sent to the left analog output while the
recorder’s output is summed to mono and sent to the right analog output. This is useful if you want to
run the GNX3 to a guitar amplifier setup (using the Left/Guitar output) while sending the recorder
output direct to a mixer (using the Right/Recorder output). When using either mono gtr (Mono output,
guitar processor only), and ster gtr (Stereo output, guitar processor only), only the GNX3’s guitar
processing is sent to the analog outputs and the recorder output is muted.
To select the analog output configuration, do the following:
1. Press the UTILITY button. The Utility button’s LED lights.
2. Using the MODE or DRUMS button, scroll to the left or right until anlg out is displayed (Analog

User Amp Dump
User Amp Dump uploads the GNX3 Amp HyperModels™ to a sysex librarian, or MIDI recording device.
This is useful for making a backup copy of your customized Amp HyperModels™, and copying your
HyperModels™ into another GNX3. The procedure for performing a User Amp Dump is as follows:
1. Connect a MIDI cable from the GNX3 MIDI Out to the the MIDI In of a MIDI recording device or the
MIDI in of another GNX3.
2. Press the UTILITY button.The Utility button’s LED lights.
3. Using the MODE or DRUMS button, scroll to the left or right until AMP DuMP (Amp Dump) is
displayed.

5. Press STORE.The display reads SND TO.
6. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the destination User Amp number.
7. Set the MIDI recording device to record.
8. Press STORE again.The display reads send amp until the dump is complete at which time the display
briefly reads DONE before it displays AMP DuMP.
9. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.
NOTE:The Amp Dump sends information on the MIDI channel defined in the MIDI Channel menu.
MIDI Mapping
MIDI Mapping provides access to all factory and user presets from external MIDI program change
commands that may not correspond to the GNX3 preset. This is useful when multiple MIDI devices are
chained together and controlled by one central unit. For example, the main MIDI controller can send out
a program change command telling a particular MIDI unit to change to Program 10, but you may want the
GNX3 to change to User Preset 27. You can remap the GNX3 so when it receives MIDI Program change
10, it calls up User Preset 27. The Procedure for mapping MIDI program changes is as follows:
1. Press the UTILITY button.The Utility button’s LED lights.
2. Using the MODE or DRUMS buttons, scroll to the left or right until M 1>U. is displayed.
3. Use the DATA WHEEL to select the incoming MIDI program number you want to remap. Notice
the flashing number to the right of the M increases and decreases as you turn the Data Wheel.
4. Press the DRUMS button. Notice the number in the red numeric display begins flashing. This number
represents the GNX3 preset number that is accessed when the GNX3 receives the MIDI program
number shown to the right of the M in the alpha-numeric display.
5. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select the preset number the GNX3 will use when it receives the
selected MIDI program change.
6. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.

Other Functions
MIDI Merge
The MIDI Merge function echos the incoming MIDI data to the MIDI Out port of the GNX3. This is
useful when multiple MIDI devices are chained together, and you want to pass incoming MIDI Data on to
MIDI devices downstream from the GNX3.The procedure for enabling or disabling the MIDI Merge
function is as follows:
1. Press the UTILITY button. The Utility button’s LED lights.
2. Using the MODE or DRUMS buttons, scroll to the left or right until midimrge is displayed. The red
numeric display reflects the current MIDI Merge status On or OF.
3. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to select the status.
4. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.
Digital Level
When plugging the GNX3’s digital output into a recording device, it is important that the recording
device gets as much signal as possible without being pushed into digital clipping. If your recorder is not
receiving enough level from the GNX3’s digital output, you can boost it using the Digital Level option in
the Utility menu. The procedure for adjusting the Digital Level is as follows:
1. Press the UTILITY button.The Utility button’s LED lights.
2. Using the MODE or DRUMS buttons, scroll to the left or right until digil lvl is displayed. The
red numeric display reflects the current Digital Level.
3. Rotate the DATA WHEEL to increase or decrease the amount of Digital Level boost needed. Range
is from 1-20.
4. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.
Digital Output Configuration
The GNX3’s S/PDIF digital output has several combinations of signal routing possibilities for recording
and performance situations. As with the analog outputs, the GNX3’s digital outputs can be independently
configured for more flexibility when using both analog and digital outputs simultaneously. The different
digital output configurations are: gtr+rec (both GNX3 guitar processing and recorder output are mixed
in stereo), gtr dry (taps the guitar signal directly off the input), gtr amp (taps the guitar signal off just
after the amp modeling and noise gate), recorder (only the GNX3’s recorder output is sent to the
digital output).
When using gtr+rec, both the GNX3’s guitar processing and the recorder stereo outputs are mixed
together at the digital output. This configuration works well when running the GNX3 directly into two
mixer channels. gtr dry and gtr amp configurations are DigiTech’s exclusive Dry Track™ features.
gtr dry taps the guitar signal immediately off the input before it runs through the GNX3’s processing.
This lets you send an unprocessed guitar signal out the digital output while still monitoring the effects
processing through the analog and headphone outputs. You can then bring the signal back into the
GNX3’s analog input and hear the same dry guitar signal run through each of the presets. gtr amp taps
the signal off just after the noise gate but gives you all the amp and cabinet modeling without the
Chorus/Mod, Delay, or Reverb effects processing. recorder is used when only the GNX3’s recorder
output is to be sent to the digital output. If you have a live mixer with digital input capability, you can use
this configuration in conjunction with the ster gtr analog output configuration. Using this combination,
the analog outputs send guitar processing to an external guitar amplifier setup while the digital output
sends recorder playback to the digital input of the mixer. This gives you the best of both worlds when
using the GNX3’s guitar processing and recorder live, with high fidelity recorder output through the
mixer and the guitar processing through an amplifier at the same time.

4. Press the EXIT button to exit.
Factory Reset
This function resets the GNX3 to its original factory settings. This procedure erases ALL custom user
presets, utility settings, and re-calibration of the Expression Pedal. The procedure for performing a
Factory Reset is as follows:
NOTE: Performing this function will erase all user-programmed data. Be sure you want to
erase the memory and start fresh before continuing with this procedure. A factory
reset does not erase the internal or external recorder memory.
1. Press the UTILITY button.The Utility button’s LED lights.
2. Using the MODE or DRUMS buttons, scroll to the left or right until RESET (Reset) is displayed.

NOTE: This procedure resets ALL user settings. Rotate the DATA WHEEL
counterclockwise, or press EXIT while NO is blinking in the display to abort.
4. Press the DRUMS button. Yes begins blinking in the display.
5. Press STORE to reset the GNX3. The display returns to the Reset screen.
6. Press EXIT to return to the GNX3 presets.
Formatting Recorder Memory
In the unlikely event the recorder memory (either internal or external) fails to work, it may need to be
reformatted. If internal memory is to be reformatted, remove any memory cards from the GNX3’s
Memory Card slot before performing this procedure. If external memory cards are to be reformatted,
insert them into the Memory Card slot before performing this procedure
NOTE: Performing this procedure will erase all recorded information from either internal or
external memory. Be sure you want to erase this memory before continuing with
this procedure.
To reformat the GNX3’s recorder memory follow these steps:
1. Begin with the GNX3’s power turned off.
2. Press and hold the RECORD button on the GNX3’s recorder panel and turn the power on.
3.When the GNX3’s main display reads format?, release the RECORD button. It will now be flashing
red.
