SECTION ONE - INTRODUCTION
Section One - Introduction
Congratulations on purchasing the DigiTech GNX1, the most advanced guitar processor of its kind.There
has never been a guitar system as unlimited as the GNX1.Thanks to the highly advanced technology provided
by GeNetX™ and the extreme horsepower contained in the Audio DNA™ DSP engine, you now have the
capability to literally create the tone of your own guitar amplifier and speaker cabinet. All of this power
enables you to create a sound that is as unique as your music. In addition to designing your own amp and
speaker cabinet, the GNX1 provides the sound coloring tools only a library full of studio quality effects could
produce.
The intuitive user interface makes programming as simple as turning a knob. However, when you have to stop
playing because your fingers are bleeding, we feel that your recovery time would be well spent by reading
through this User’s Guide with your GNX1 in front of you. It could assist you in improving on the seemingly
perfect tone you may have already created.
Included Items
Before you tear open the packaging and toss the manual over your shoulder, please check to make sure the
following items have been included:
• GNX1
• PS0913B Power Supply
• Warranty Card
• User’s Guide
The utmost care was taken in manufacturing and packaging your GNX1. Everything should be included and in
perfect working condition. However, if you find that anything is missing, contact the factory at once. Please
take a moment to fill out the Warranty Card. It is your safeguard in the unlikely event that the GNX1 develops a problem.

The GNX1 comes with 48 pre-programmed Factory Presets, and 48 User Presets. From the factory, the
User Presets are exact duplicates of the Factory Presets.This allows you to experiment without running
the risk of losing any of the original sounds contained in the GNX1.
Use the Bank Footswitch (9) to Select a Bank and the 1-3 Footswitches (1) to select different
Presets.The Data Up/Down buttons (7) can also be used to select a Preset. Once you have found
Presets that suit your taste, you can alter the sounds to your specific needs.Turning the Knobs (5) below
the Display will select Amp and Cabinet Models for the Green and Red Amp Channels.The Middle Knob
will Warp the two channels together. Pressing the Status button (4) will provide access to the Gain, EQ,
and Level Parameters for the Green and Red Channels.The Effects contained in each Preset can be edited
also. Press the Effect Select Up/Down buttons (3) to access and edit any of the effects.The Matrix
LEDs will light indicating which Effect has been selected. Follow the row with the lighted LED across to
determine which column the Parameter needing adjustment is located. Once a parameter has been
selected, you may increase or decrease the parameter value to your liking by rotating the Knob located
directly above the column for the desired parameter. Remember that you are not at risk of losing any of
the sounds the GNX1 came with so, don’t be afraid to experiment.

About the GNX1
The Presets
Presets are named and numbered locations of programmed sounds which reside in the GNX1. Presets can be recalled
with the Footswitches or the Data Up and Down Switches.The GNX1 comes with 48 Factory and 48 User Presets
available.The Factory Presets will not allow you to store any changes to them.The User Presets are locations where
your creations may be stored. From the factory, the 48 User Presets are exact duplicates of the 48 Factory Presets.
This allows you to make your own Presets without the worry of losing any of the original sounds that the GNX1 came
with.When you select a Preset, the name of the Preset will be shown in the green alpha-numeric Display and the
number of the Preset will be shown in the red numeric Display. The LED at the top of the Bank/Preset Footswitch will
light green to indicate a User Preset and red to indicate a Factory Preset.
7
SECTION ONE - INTRODUCTION
Performance Mode
When you first apply power to the GNX1, it will power up in Performance mode.This is the top level mode and the
mode used while you are performing.While in Performance mode, the Display will show the currently selected Preset’s
name and number. The vertical LEDs on the Matrix will indicate the Effects which are active in the selected Preset.
From Performance mode, you have access to all of the Presets within the GNX1 with your choice of assigning the
Footswitches to either Preset Mode or FX Mode.
Preset Mode
Preset Mode is the default mode from the factory. In Preset mode, the 1-3 Footswitches will call up Presets in the
currently selected Bank.The Bank Switch is used to select the 16 User/Factory Banks. Successive presses of the
Bank/Preset switch will advance forward through all User/Factory Banks. Pressing and holding the Bank/Preset switch
will scroll backwards through all User/Factory Banks. Once the desired Bank has been selected, the LEDs in the 1-3
Footswitches will flash indicating that a Preset within that bank needs to be selected in order to activate the Bank. If
no Preset selection is made within 5 seconds,The GNX1 will return to the last Bank and Preset that had been active.
FX Mode
FX mode is another mode of operation which can be used during a performance.The FX Mode button (located to
the right of the Display) is used to switch between Preset and FX Modes.When the FX mode is active, the FX Mode
button will light.In FX Mode, the 1-3 Footswitches toggle the designated Effects. Depending on which effects are
active in the current Preset, these switches may have one or more LEDs lit indicating the status of these effects.
Footswitch 1 toggles between the Green, Red, and Yellow amp channels. Footswitch 1 will light either green, red, or
yellow indicating whether the Green Channel, Red Channel, or a Warped combination of the Green and Red
Channels is active. Footswitch 2 turns on and off the Chorus/Mod Effects Module. Footswitch 3 turns on and off the
Delay.The Bank/Preset switch is used to change Presets. Successive presses of the Bank/Preset switch will advance
forward through all Factory and User Presets. Pressing and holding the Bank/Preset switch will scroll backwards
through all Factory and User Presets.
8
SECTION ONE - INTRODUCTION
The Footswitches
As explained previously, Preset Mode utilizes Footswitches 1-3 to select Presets, and the same switches will toggle
Effects in FX Mode. However, these footswitches are also used to access other functions in the GNX1. Pressing the 1
and 2 Footswitches simultaneously, or pressing the currently lit Footswitch (in Preset mode) will bypass the GNX1.
Pressing and holding the 1 and 2 Footswitches simultaneously will access the Tuner mode. Pressing the 2 and 3
Footswitches simultaneously will activate the Learn-A-Lick mode. In the Learn-A-Lick mode, the 1-3 switches will
activate the various Learn-A-Lick functions.
The Expression Pedal
As you go through the different Presets in the GNX1, you will find that the expression pedal has different functions.
This pedal can be assigned to control three different parameters in each Preset. Rocking the Expression Pedal back
and forth will change the value of the assigned parameters.You can assign minimum and maximum values (stop points)
for each parameter that you control with the pedal.The Expression Pedal also includes a feature called V-Switch which
allows you to override the Parameters assigned to the Expression Pedal and replace its assignment with the Wah. See
page 32 for more information on assigning the Expression Pedal.
Bypass Mode
The GNX1 can be bypassed for a clean, unprocessed, straight guitar tone. Bypass mode disengages all Modeling and
effects.To bypass the GNX1 in Preset mode, press the Footswitch representing the currently active Preset (the 1-3
footswitch that is lit), or press Footswitch 1 and 2 simultaneously.To bypass the GNX1 while in FX Mode, press the 1
and 2 Footswitches simultaneously. When the GNX1 is bypassed, the Display will read BYPASS and all LEDs in the
Matrix will turn off. Pressing any Footswitch will exit Bypass and return to the last Preset used. None of the Matrix or
Programming buttons are available in Bypass mode.
Tuner Mode
The Tuner in the GNX1 allows you to quickly tune or check the tuning on your guitar. Enter Tuner mode by pressing

SECTION TWO - EDITING FUNCTIONS
Section Two - Editing Functions
Editing/Creating a Preset
The GNX1 was designed to make the process of sound creation easy and intuitive. Because the GNX1 provides both
Amp Modeling and Effects Processing, the editing functions have been divided into two sections; the Amp/Cabinet
Modeling section which provides editing for the Amp and Cabinet Modeling, and the Effects section which provides
editing of the extensive Effects library.The GeNetX™ technology contained in the GNX1 allows you to go much
further than mere Amp Modeling. GeNetX™ lets you create your own Amp/Cabinet HyperModel™, tune the resonant
frequency of the speaker cabinet 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 necessarily need to be the
location which you intend to have it reside, as you can save your creation to any User Preset location during the store
process.To begin creating a HyperModel™ or just editing the Effects, you will have to select a Preset which will be
your starting point by using the Footswitches or Data Up/Down buttons.
Amp/Cabinet Modeling
Once you have selected a Preset you wish to edit, you can select the Amp Models or Cabinet Types for your Preset.
Amp/Cabinet Modeling is a technology which applies the tone of one of several vintage or modern Amp Models and
Cabinet Types to your guitar signal. The GNX1 includes accurate emulations of 15 popular Amp Models, 1 Acoustic
Guitar Simulation, and 6 Speaker Cabinet Types.Your choices include:
Amp Models
CRUNCH 10 - A nice crunchy tube amp combo

Editing Amp Models and Cabinet Types
Each Preset in the GNX1 is equipped with a Green, Red, and Yellow (Warped) Amp Channel.The Green and Red Amp
Channels include individually assignable Amp Models, Cabinet Types, Gain, EQ, and Level settings.The Speaker Cabinet
can also be tuned meaning that you can select the Cabinet’s resonant frequency. Once these Parameters have been
adjusted for the Green and Red channels, they can be toggled instantly by use of the Amp Channel Footswitch
(only when FX Mode is active).The Amp Models, Gain, EQ, and Level characteristics selected for the Green and Red
channels can then be Warped together resulting in a completely new HyperModel™.
12
SECTION TWO - EDITING FUNCTIONS
Selecting Amp/Cabinet Models
The first step to editing an Amp Model, Cabinet Type, or creating your own HyperModel™ is to select the Amp and
Cabinet types for the Green and Red Amp channels in your Preset.To do this, the GNX1 must be in the
Performance mode which is indicated by the LED next to the Status button lighting yellow. Pressing the Exit button
will return the GNX1 to Performance mode regardless of the currently selected mode.The procedure for selecting
an Amp Model or Cabinet Type for the Green or Red Amp Channels is as follows:
1. Use the Parameter 1 knob (far left) to select the Green Amp Model.The Amp Model name will appear in the
alpha-numeric Display. See the Amp/Cabinet Modeling section on page 12 for a complete list of Amp Models.
2. Use the Parameter 2 knob (second from the left) to select the Green Cabinet Type. See the Amp/Cabinet
Modeling section on page 12 for a complete list of Cabinet Types.
3. Use the Parameter 4 knob (second from the right) to select the Red Amp Model.
4. Use the Parameter 5 knob (far right) to select the Red Cabinet type.
Adjusting Amp Parameters
The Gain, EQ, and Level Parameters can be adjusted individually for the Green and Red Amp Channels.The Gain
ranges from 0 (0) to 99 (99).The Bass, Mid, and Treble EQ range from -12 (-12 dB) to 12 (+12 dB).The Level
ranges from 0 (0) to 99 (99).The procedure for adjusting the Amp Parameters is as follows:
1. Press the Status button until all horizontal LEDs across the columns light green.This indicates that you have
accessed the Amp Parameters for the Green Channel.
2. Use the Parameter 1 knob to adjust the Gain (distortion drive) for the Green Amp Channel.
3. Use the Parameter 2 knob to adjust the Bass (low frequency) enhancement for the Green Amp Channel.
4. Use the Parameter 3 knob to adjust the Mid range frequency enhancement for the Green Amp Channel.
5. Use the Parameter 4 knob to adjust the Treble (high frequency) enhancement for the Green Amp Channel.
6. Use the Parameter 5 knob to adjust the Level (volume) for the Green Amp Channel.
7. Press the Status button again until all horizontal LEDs across the columns turn Red indicating that the Amp
Parameters for the Red Channel have been accessed.Then repeat steps 2 through 6 for adjusting the Red Amp
Channel.

3. Rotating the Parameter 5 knob will adjust the tuning of the Red Cabinet type (RT).
4. Once the desired tuning has been selected for both Green and Red Cabinets, press the Exit button once.
Creating HyperModels™
The creation of new, unique HyperModels™ is what GeNetX™ is all about. Once the Green and Red Amp Models
and Cabinet types have been selected and the Amp Parameters and Cabinet Tuning have been adjusted, GeNetX™
technology allows you to 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.With the GNX1 in Performance mode (indicated by a yellow Status LED), rotate the Parameter 3 knob to Warp
the Green and Red Amps and Cabinets together. Rotating counterclockwise will add more of the Green Channel
characteristics, and clockwise will add more of the Red Channel characteristics.
Saving HyperModels™ (Amp Save)
When you have obtained the desired blend of the Green and Red Channels, you must perform the Amp Save
procedure to create your new HyperModel™ for future use.This HyperModel™ can be saved in one of 9 User
HyperModel™ locations.Then your new HyperModel™ can be selected for use in either the Green or Red Amp
Channel, and even be Warped again with any other Factory Amp Model or User HyperModel™.The Amp Save
procedure is as follows:
1. Press the Amp Save button once.The Amp Save button will begin to flash and the Display will read NEWAMP. The
N of NEWAMP will be flashing indicating that you can now name your HyperModel™.
2. Use the Data Up/Down buttons to select the desired alpha-numeric character.

SECTION THREE - EFFECTS AND PARAMETERS
Section Three - Effects and Parameters
About the Effects
The GNX1 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 GNX1 has the
Effects connected in the most logical, and best sounding order.The following diagram shows the signal path through the
processing contained in the GNX1.
Effect Definitions
Each Effect within the GNX1 is fully programmable to suit your personal tastes and application. Understanding how
these Effects will alter the sound, and how each Parameter will alter the Effect will help you achieve the sound you are
looking for.The following overview outlines how each Effect and Parameter in the GNX1 will alter the sound.
Wah-Pickup
A Wah 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 VSwitch located under the toe of the Expression Pedal. See Page 35 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) engages and disengages the Wah effect.
Wah Type - The Number 1 Knob selects the type of Wah.Values include: CRY (Cry Wah is a traditional sounding
Wah), BOTIQU (Boutique Wah is a wide sweeping Wah with a more modern sound) and FULRNG (Full
Range Wah sweeps the entire spectrum of audible frequencies).
Wah Minimum - The Number 2 Knob is used to select the minimum point the Wah (WAHMIN) will reach in the
toe up position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Wah Maximum - The Number 3 Knob is used to select the maximum point the Wah (WAHMAX) will reach in the
toe down position of the Expression Pedal. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Pickup Type/Off -The Number 4 Knob selects the type of Pick Up to be be simulated.Values include: PCKOFF
(Pickup Simulator Off), SC>HB (Gives a single coil pick up the warm tone of a humbucker), and
HB>SC (Gives a humbucker the unique sound of a single coil).
The Number 5 knob has no function when the Wah-Pickup is selected.
Compressor
A Compressor can be used to increase sustain, and tighten up guitars. 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.
Compression Parameters are as follows:
Comp On/Off - The Status button engages and disengages the Compressor.
Attack - The Number 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 Number 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).
18
SECTION THREE - EFFECTS AND PARAMETERS
Threshold - The Number 3 Knob selects the maximum strength the signal is allowed to reach before the
compressor begins to work. Low Threshold settings will activate the Compressor with weaker signals.
Higher settings will require a stronger signal to activate compression. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Gain - The Number 4 Knob adjusts the Output Gain from the Compressor.This parameter should be used to
balance the level of the Compressor in order to achieve unity gain. It is possible to clip other effects in the
GNX1 by setting the Compressor Gain too high. Ranges from 0 to 20 (dB).
The Number 5 knob has no function when the Compressor is selected.
Whammy/IPS
This module includes 4 types of pitch altering effects:Whammy™, IPS, Detune, and Pitch Shift.The Status button
engages (IPS ON) and disengages (IPSOFF) the Whammy/IPS module.The Number 1 Knob (Type) selects whether
the module is a WHAMMY (Whammy™), IPS (Intelligent Pitch Shifter), DETUNE (Detuner), or PITCH (Pitch Shifter).
Parameters 1, 2, and 3 in the Matrix will 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 will bend either up or down.When Whammy™ is
selected, it is automatically placed before the Amp Modeling as shown in the block diagram (at the beginning of the
Effects section).The Whammy™ effect must be linked to the Expression Pedal in order to function. See page 32 for
more information on linking the Expression Pedal.
Parameter 1 (Whammy™) - The Number 2 Knob selects the interval and direction of the pitch bend. Choices
are as follows:
Harmony Bends (Dry Signal Added)
Whammy (no Dry Signal)
M3>MA3 (a minor third to a Major third)
1OCTUP (1 octave up)
2NDMA3 (a second above to a Major third up)
2OCTUP (2 octaves up)
3RD4TH (a third above to a fourth up)
2NDDWN (a second down)
4TH5TH (a fourth above to a fifth up)
REV2ND (a second down reversed pedal action)
5THOCT (a fifth above to an octave up)
4THDWN (a fourth down)
HOCTUP (one octave up)
1OCTDN (an octave down)
HOCTDN (one octave down)
2OCTDN (2 octaves down)
OCTU>D (one octave up to one octave down)
DIVBOM (Dive Bomb)
Parameter 2 (Whammy™) - The Number 3 Knob provides a manual control of the Whammy™ pedal position.
Ranges from 0 to 99.
The Number 4 knob has no function when the Whammy™ is selected.
Intelligent Pitch Shifting (IPS) 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 differs from a regular
Pitch Shifter in the fact that an Intelligent Pitch Shifter will sharp or flat the shifted pitch in order to keep the specified
interval within the selected key and scale creating a true harmony.
Parameter 1 (IPS) - The Number 2 Knob selects the Amount or harmony interval for the Intelligent Pitch Shifter.
Interval choices include:
OCTDN (octave down)
2NDUP (a second above)
7THDN (a seventh below)
3RDUP (a third above)
6tHDN (a sixth below)
4THUP (a fourth above)
5tHDN (a fifth below)
5THUP (a fifth above)
4tHDN (a fourth below)
6THUP (a sixth above)

7THUP (a seventh above)
2NDDN (a second below)
OCTUP (an octave above)
Parameter 2 (IPS) - The Number 3 Knob selects the scale the IPS will use. Key choices include: MAJOR (Major),
MINOR (minor), DORIAN (Dorian), MIXLYD (Mixolydian), LYDIAN (Lydian), HARMIN
(Harmonic minor).
Parameter 3 (IPS) - The Number 4 Knob selects the musical key the IPS will use. Key choices range from KEY E
(Key E) through KEY E&(Key Eb) .
19
SECTION THREE - EFFECTS AND PARAMETERS
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 Number 2 Knob selects the AMNT (Amount) of detuning applied to the copied
pitch in cents (100 cents equals 1 semitone). Ranges from -24 (24 cents below) to +24
(24 cents above).
The number 3 and 4 Knobs have no function when Detune is selected.
A Pitch Shifter will keep the shifted pitch at a parallel distance from the input note.
Parameter 1 (Pitch) - The Number 2 Knob selects the SHIFT (Shift) of the pitch in semitone intervals. Ranges
from -24 (two octaves below) to +24 (two octaves above).
The number 3 and 4 Knobs have no function when Pitch is selected.
Level - The Number 5 Knob adjusts the Level or Mix (IPSLVL/IPSMIX)of all pitch altering effects in this module.
Ranges from 0 to 99.
EQ
Equalization is an extremely useful tool used to further shape the tonal response of your guitar signal.The EQ in the
GNX1 is similar to the tone knobs on an amplifier with the exception that the GNX1 allows you to choose the center
frequency for the Mid Range and Treble adjustments.
EQ Green/Red - The Status button is used to select whether you are adjusting the EQ for the Amp Model assigned
to the Green or the Red Amp Channel when a Warped combination of amps is selected.
Bass Level - The Number 1 Knob adjusts the amount of low end enhancement. Ranges from G/R BASS -12 to 12

Level knob. Ranges from 500Hz (500 Hz.) to 8000Hz (8000 Hz.)
Treble Level - The Number 5 Knob adjusts the amount of high end enhancement. Ranges from G/R TRBL -12 to
12 (dB).
Noise Gate
A Noise Gate is designed to eliminate hiss and ambient noise while you are not playing. A Noise Gate can also be
used to create an automatic swell in volume.The GNX1 includes two different types of Noise Gates: Silencer™, and
Pluck.The Silencer™ operates as a standard Noise Gate.The Pluck Noise Gate is designed to close after every note
(depending on the Pluck Sensitivity).This allows automatic volume swells to occur on a note for note basis.
Gate On/Off - The Status button turns the Noise Gate on (GAT ON) and off (GATOFf).
Gate Type - The Number 1 Knob selects between the silNCR (Silencer ™) or PLUCK (Pluck) type of Noise
Gates.
Gate Threshold - The Number 2 Knob sets the signal strength required to open or close the Noise Gate.The
Gate Threshold (THRESH) parameter ranges from 0 (opens easily) to 40 (requires strong signals
to open).
Gate Attack - The Number 3 Knob adjusts the length of time it takes the gate to open (ATTACK) and the signal
to become audible once the Threshold has been exceeded. Ranges from 0 (immediate signal), to 9
(This setting will gradually ramp up the volume).
Pluck Sensitivity - The Number 4 Knob controls the point where the Gate retriggers (PLUCK) when using the
Pluck type Noise Gate.This Parameter is only available when Pluck is the selected type of Noise
Gate. Ranges from 0 (requires strong signals to retrigger) to 99 (retriggers with weak signals).
The Number 5 knob has no function when the Noise Gate is selected.

Chorus/Mod Effects
The Modulation Effects row is a multi-function module allowing you to select effects such as; Chorus, Flanger, Phaser,
Triggered Flanger,Triggered Phaser,Tremolo, Panner,Vibrato, Rotary Speaker, AutoYa™, YaYa™, SynthTalk™, Envelope
Filter (auto wah), Detune, and Pitch Shift. Only one of the effects in this row can be used at a time.When the
Chorus/Mod row is selected, the Status button is used to turn the Effect module on (EFF ON) and off (EFFOFF).The
Number 1 Knob is used select the type of Effect to be used. After selecting the type of effect in this module, the
Number 2, Number 3, Number 4, and Number 5 Knobs can then be used to adjust the individual Parameters
associated with the selected effect.The following pages describe each Effect and their Parameters in more detail.
Chorus (CHORUS)
A Chorus adds a short delay to your signal.The delayed signal is modulated in and out of tune and then mixed back
with the original signal to create a thicker sound.
Parameter 1 - The Number 2 Knob adjusts the rate (SPEED) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 2 - The Number 3 Knob adjusts the intensity (DEPTH) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 3 - The Number 4 Knob adjusts the PreDelay (PREDLY) or length of time before the Chorus effect
is applied to the input signal. Ranges from 1 to 20.
* Parameter 4 - Selects the waveform used by the Chorus.Waveforms include Triangle, Sine, and Square.
* Parameter 5 - Adjusts the left to right balance of the wet signal. Ranges from L 99 to R 99.
Mod Level - The Number 5 Knob controls the volume of the Chorus. Ranges from 0 to 99.
Flange (FLaNge)
A Flanger uses the same principle as a Chorus but uses a shorter delay time and adds regeneration (or repeats) to
the modulating delay.This results in an exaggerated up and down sweeping motion to the effect.
Parameter 1 - The Number 2 Knob adjusts the rate (SPEED) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 2 - The Number 3 Knob adjusts the intensity (DEPTH) of the Modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 3 - The Number 4 Knob adjusts the amount of feedback (REGEN) added to the Flanger delay. Ranges
from 0 to 99.
* Parameter 4 - Selects the waveform used by the Flanger.Waveforms include Triangle, Sine, and Square.
* Parameter 5 - Adjusts the left to right balance of the wet signal. Ranges from L 99 to R 99.
Mod Mix - The Number 5 Knob controls the mix of wet and dry signal. Ranges from 0 (all dry) to 99 (all wet).
Phaser (PHaseR)
A Phaser splits the incoming signal, and then changes the phasing of the signal.This signal is then taken in and out of
phase and mixed back in with the original signal. As the phasing changes, different frequencies get canceled resulting
in a warm sort of twisting sound.
Parameter 1 - The Number 2 Knob adjusts the rate (SPEED) of the modulating phase. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 2 - The Number 3 Knob adjusts the intensity (DEPTH) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.

(REGEN). Ranges from 0 to 99.
* Parameter 4 - Selects the waveform used by the Phaser.Waveforms include Triangle, Sine, and Square.
* Parameter 5 - Adjusts the left to right balance of the wet signal. Ranges from L 99 to R 99.
Mod Mix - The Number 5 Knob controls the mix of wet and dry signal. Ranges from 0 (all dry) to 99 (all wet).
Triggered Flanger (TRGFLG)
A Triggered Flanger is the same sound as a regular Flanger but allows you to choose the starting point of the
Flanger sweep. In a regular Flanger, the low frequency oscillator (LFO) is continually sweeping up and down.This
means that when you begin to play, the flanger may be at the top, bottom, or any random point of the sweep.With a
Triggered Flanger, every time the signal exceeds the Sensitivity level setting, the Flanger will begin at the point of the
sweep that you designate with the value of the LFO Start Parameter.
Parameter 1 - The Number 2 Knob adjusts the rate (SPEED) of the modulation. Ranges from 1 to 99.
Parameter 2 - The Number 3 Knob adjusts the strength the signal must be (SENSTV) in order to trigger the
Flanger. Ranges from 1 (requiring strong signals to trigger) to 99 (triggers with weak signals).
Parameter 3 - The Number 4 Knob selects the Flanger sweep starting point (LFO ST). Ranges from 0 to 99.
Mod Mix - The Number 5 Knob controls the mix of wet and dry signal. Ranges from 0 (all dry) to 99 (all wet).
* These Parameters are only available using the GENEDIT™ computer editor software.

Section Four - Tutorial
A Guided Example
Suppose you wanted to create your own HyperModel™ that incorporated the sweet tones of a vintage Tweed with an
American 2x12 cabinet, and the ripping distortion of a Rectified Amp with a British 4x12 cabinet. Let’s also suppose
that we want to be able to toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and this new HyperModel™ in a Preset which
gave your single coil pickup a humbucker sound, used no Compression, had a Noise Gate that opens quickly, a subtle
Chorus effect, no Delay, and a little bit of a Hall reverb.The following steps will guide you through the procedure for
creating just such a Preset in the GNX1.
Choose a Preset
The first step in creating a Preset is selecting 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 Up/Down buttons 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
Recitified Amp using a British 4x12 cabinet. After selecting Preset 40, the GNX1 will be ready to select the Amp Models
(indicated by the yellow Status button LED).
Select the Green Channel Amp and Cabinet
The LEDs next to the Number 1 and Number 2 knobs are lit green indicating that these two knobs will select the
Amp and Cabinet types for the Green Channel.To assign the vintage Tweed amp to the Green Channel, rotate the
Number 1 Knob until the Display reads TWEED (Tweed).Then rotate the Number 2 Knob until the Display
reads AM2X12 (American 2x12).
Select the Red Channel Amp and Cabinet
The LEDs next to the Number 4 and Number 5 knobs are lit red indicating that these two knobs will select the
Amp and Cabinet types for the Red Channel.To assign the Rectified amp to the Red Channel, rotate the Number
4 Knob until the Display reads RECTIF (Rectified).Then rotate the Number 5 Knob until the Display reads
BR4X12 (British 4x12).
25
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Adjust the Green Channel Parameters
The Tweed amp that we selected for our Green Channel assignment will initialize with factory default settings for
the Gain, EQ, and Level Parameters.These settings may not necessarily suit your personal taste and require some
fine tuning.To access these Green Channel Parameters, press the Status button once. All horizontal LEDs will light
green indicating that all 5 knobs will now adjust the Green Channel Parameters. Rotate the Number 1 Knob to
adjust the Tweed Gain, Number 2 Knob to adjust the Tweed Bass, Number 3 Knob to adjust the Tweed Mids,
Number 4 Knob to adjust the Tweed Treble, and the Number 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 tweaked to suit
your personal taste.To access these Red Channel Parameters, press the Status button again. All horizontal LEDs
will light red indicating that all 5 knobs will now adjust the Red Channel Parameters. Rotate the Number 1 Knob
to adjust the Rectified Gain, Number 2 Knob to adjust the Rectified Bass, Number 3 Knob to adjust the
Rectified Mids, Number 4 Knob to adjust the Rectified Treble, and the Number 5 Knob to adjust the Rectified
Level.
Tune the Cabinets (optional)
We 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, press and hold the Status button until the Display reads
CABTUN (Cabinet Tuning). Release the Status button and rotate the Number 2 Knob to adjust the tuning for the
Green Cabinet (GT º0) and the Number 5 Knob to adjust the tuning for the Red Cabinet (RT º0). Once the
tuning of both Cabinets have been adjusted, press the Status button again to return to the Performance mode.
26
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Warp the Green and Red Channels Together
When we have the Amps and Cabinets in our Green and Red Channels dialed in to suit our taste, we can Warp
them together to create our new HyperModel™. Make sure your GNX1 is in yellow mode (indicated by the Status
LED lighting yellow). If it is not in yellow mode, press the Status or Exit button until yellow mode has been
accessed.Then rotate the Number 3 (Warp) Knob to achieve the desired blend of 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 our creation to one of the 16
User HyperModel™ locations.This will enable us to use it in Presets. Press the Amp Save button once.The
Display will read NEWAMP (New Amp) and the first letter (N) will be flashing.This is asking us to name the new
HyperModel™. For the sake of this example, let’s name the HyperModel™ “Rectwd” (Rectified Tweed). Press the
Data Up/Down buttons to select R as the first letter.Then press the Rhythm button to select the next character in the Display.This character should already be an E because we started out with the name “NEWAMP.” If it is
not an E, press the Data Up/Down buttons to select E as the character. Continue to use the Rhythm button to
select the next character location in the Display, and the Data Up/Down buttons to select the alphabetic characters until the Display reads RECTWD.
Then press the Amp Save button again.This will take us to the second step of saving a HyperModel™, which is
choosing one of the 9 User HyperModel™ locations.The alpha-numeric Display should read EMPTY (Empty) and
the red numeric Display should read U1 because this is the first HyperModel™ stored to your GNX1. Press the
Amp Save button again to store this new creation to this Amp location.The Display will briefly read AMPSVD
(Amp Saved) and then return to showing the name of the currently selected Preset.
Assign Models to the Preset Channels
In the previous steps, we assigned a Tweed to the Green Channel and a Rectified Model to the Red Channel.Then we
Warped the two together to create our HyperModel™.This HyperModel™ is now saved as an amp type that we
named Rectwd, but it is not currently a part of our Preset. In this example Preset, we were going to have the ability to
toggle between an acoustic guitar simulation and our new HyperModel™.To do this we need to assign the acoustic
model to the Green Channel and our new Rectwd to the Red Channel of our Preset.The LED next to the Status button should currently be yellow. If it is not, press the Exit button. Now rotate the Number 1 Knob until the Display
reads ACOUST.This is the Green Channel Model for the Preset. Now rotate the Number 4 Knob until the Display
reads RECTWD (our new HyperModel™).This is the Red Channel Model for the Preset.We will now be able to toggle
between these two sounds using the Amp Footswitch.
27
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Edit the Preset
The next step to creating our example Preset is to enter the Preset Edit mode.To do this, press the Effect Select
Down button once. At this point the Matrix LED in the Wah-Pickup row should light.The Display will briefly show
EDIT and then cycle between showing the status of the Wah and Pickup simulator Effects. If the Display shows that the
Wah is on (WAH ON), press the Status button once to turn it off (since our example is not using a Wah).
Select the Pickup Type
In our example Preset we were assuming that we were using a single coil pickup, but wanted it to sound like a double
coil humbucker.With the Wah-Pickup LED lit, rotate the Number 4 Knob until the Display shows SC>HB.This means
that a single coil will sound like a Humbucker.
Turn the Compressor Off
Next, we didn’t want to use compression in our Preset so, we need to turn the compressor off. Press the Effect
Select Down button again.The LED on the Compression row will light and the Display will show the current status of
the Compressor. If the Compressor is on, press the Status button until the Display shows CMPOFF.The Compressor
will then be disengaged.
Turn the Whammy™/IPS Off
We didn’t want to use any Whammy™ or IPS effects in this Preset. Press the Effect Select Down button again and
the LED on the Whammy/IPS row will light. If the Display indicates that either one of these effects is active, press the
Status button until the Display reads IPSOFF (IPS Off).
28
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Adjust the EQ
The EQ for both the Acoustic Model in the Green channel and our Rectwd HyperModel™ in the Red channel can be
adjusted individually.To do so, press the Effect Select Down button again and the LED on the Equalizer row will light.
The GNX1 will default to the EQ adjustments for the Red Channel and the Display will briefly read EQ RED (EQ
Red). Rotate the Number 1 Knob to adjust the Red Channels Bass enhancement, the Number 2 Knob to select the
center frequency for the Mid-range, the Number 3 Knob to adjust the Mid-range enhancement, the Number 4
Knob to select the center frequency for the Treble, and the Number 5 Knob to adjust the Treble enhancement. Press
the Status button or Amp Footswitch to select the Green Channel’s EQ adjustments.The Display will briefly read
EQ GRN (EQ Green) and the same knobs will adjust the same EQ Parameters for the Green Channel.
Adjust the Noise Gate
For our example, we wanted our Noise Gate to open quickly with a relatively weak signal.This type of gate would use
the Silencer™ with a low Threshold and short Attack Time. Press the Amp Footswitch again to select the Red Amp
Channel. Now press the Effect Select Down button and the LED in the Noise Gate row will light. If the Display indicates that the Noise Gate is off (GATOFF), press the Status button until the Display reads GAT ON (Gate On). Rotate
the Number 1 Knob until the Display reads SILNCR (Silencer) as the type of gate. Rotate the Number 2 Knob to
set the Threshold to a value of 20 (this may need further adjustment depending upon your guitar). Rotate the
Number 3 Knob to set the Attack Time value to 0 (fast attack).
29
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Select and Adjust the Chorus
Next we wanted to thicken up the sound in our Preset by adding a subtle Chorus effect. Press the Effect Select
Down button again and the LED in the Chorus/Mod row will light. If the Display indicates that this module is off
(EFFOFF), press the Status button until the Display reads EFF ON (Effect On).Then rotate the Number 1 Knob
until the Display shows CHORUS (Chorus) as the effect type. Rotate the Number 2 Knob to set the Chorus Speed to
a value of 5. Rotate the Number 3 Knob to set the Chorus Depth to a value of 30. Rotate the Number 5 Knob to
set the Chorus Level to a value of 50.
Turn the Delay Off
In our example Preset we wanted the Delay to be bypassed. Press the Effect Select Down button again and the LED
in the Delay row will light. If the Display indicates that the Delay is on (DLY ON), press the Status button until the
Display reads DLYOFF (Delay Off).
Select and Adjust the Reverb
In our example Preset we also wanted a little bit of Hall Reverb to provide some ambience. Press the Effect Select
Down button again and the LED in the Reverb row will light. If the Display indicates that the Reverb is off (RVBOFF),
press the Status button until the Display reads RVB ON (Reverb On). Rotate the Number 1 Knob to select HALL
(Hall) as the Reverb Type. Rotate the Number 2 Knob to set the Reverb Predelay to a value of 2. Rotate the
Number 3 Knob to set the Reverb Decay to a value of 15. Rotate the Number 4 Knob to set the Reverb Damping
to a value of 40. Rotate the Number 5 Knob to set the Reverb Level to a value of 30.
30
SECTION FOUR - TUTORIAL
Store the Preset
The last step that we need to do is to store our changes to a User Preset. If we changed Presets or turned the GNX1
off without storing these settings, it would forget what we had done and revert back to the original Preset. Press the
Store button once.The first letter in the Display begins to flash which is asking us to rename the Preset. Since this is
an example Preset, let’s name the Preset exampl. Press the Data Up/Down buttons until the flashing character in the
Display is an E. Press the Rhythm button once and the second character begins to flash. Use the Data Up/Down
buttons again until the flashing character is an X. Press the Rhythm button again to Select the third character and
change it to an A using the Data Up/Down buttons. Continue using the Rhythm button to select the characters and
the Data Up/Down buttons to change the characters.
Once the Display reads exampL, press the Store button again. Now the numbers in the red numeric Display are flashing, which is asking where to store this new Preset. Using the Data Up/Down buttons, select 48 as the destination.
Press the Store button one more time to execute the Store function.
Congratulations! You have successfully created a Preset.

SECTION FIVE - OTHER FUNCTIONS
Section Five - Other Functions
Expression Pedal
The Expression Pedal on the GNX1 can be assigned to control up to 3 Parameters in real time including the Volume,
Whammy™,Ya Ya™, or just about any other parameter.. When a parameter has been assigned to the Expression Pedal,
the minimum and maximum values the assigned Parameter will reach can also be programmed.The GNX1’s Expression
Pedal includes DigiTech’s exclusive V-Switch.The V-Switch allows the Expression Pedal assignment to be switched on the
fly. Applying extra pressure to the toe of the Expression Pedal will engage the V-Switch and the function of the
Expression Pedal will switch between the assigned parameter and 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 35 for the VSwitch 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 EXPDL1 (Expression Pedal Link 1), EXPDL2 (Expression Pedal Link
2), or EXPDL3 (Expression Pedal Link 3), depending upon which assignment you wish to use or the number of
Parameters you intend to assign.The Display will alternate between showing the Expression Pedal selection and the
currently assigned Parameter.
3. Rotate the Number 1 Knob until the desired Parameter appears in the Display. See the Expression Parameter
Assignment List on page 33 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.
4. Rotate the Number 2 Knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter will reach with the Expression
Pedal in the toe up position (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
5. Rotate the Number 3 Knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter will reach 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 GNX1 includes two assignable low frequency oscillators (LFO1 and LFO2) which can be assigned to any of the
same parameters available for assignment to the Expression Pedal. A low frequency oscillator will automatically vary the
value of the assigned parameter at a steady rate. A minimum and maximum value each LFO will reach may be also 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 GNX1 would automatically sweep the amount of distortion from a clean sound to a distorted
sound. Individual LFO speeds are also available for assignment. 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 GNX1 is as follows:
1. Press the Effect Select button until the Exp Assign row has been selected.
2. Press the Status button to select whether you want to assign LFO1 (LFO1) or LFO2 (LFO2).
3. Rotate the Number 1 Knob until the desired Parameter appears in the Display. See the Expression Parameter
Assignment list on page 33 for a complete list of assignable Parameters.
4. Rotate the Number 2 Knob to select the minimum value the assigned parameter will reach at the bottom turn
around point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
5. Rotate the Number 3 Knob to select the maximum value the assigned parameter will reach at the top turn around
point for the LFO (not available when volume is the assigned parameter).
6. Rotate the Number 4 Knob to select the speed at which the LFO will oscillate from the minimum to the
maximum values. LFO speed ranges from .O5 HZ (.05 Hz) to 1ºO HZ (10.0 Hz).
7. Rotate the Number 5 Knob to select the waveform the LFO will oscillate on.Your choices include:
TRINGL (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.
