by Peter Gutierrez from Elk Grove CAAgain, thanks for the great deal. Although I teach technology ( business strategy, not at the molecular techie level ) this unit is amazing for both its value and functionalities.

* Very intuitive and easy interface.
* It has dedicated keys or buttons for most features ( tempo, key, loop in/out. etc. ) So, unlike products where each key may have multiple functions it is a piece of cake to access the main feature with just, for me, scanning the manual.
* The unit delivers. Not only does it slow the speed down without changing pitch .. you can change the pitch or key too which is a must, for example if you want to copy SRV in open position where he detunes his guitar to E b. No problem, just move the key (pitch ) up a half step and playback is now in the key of E and you're ready to become frustrated ..with SRV that is.
* Ever try to play along with a CD that is slightly out of tune? You can attempt to re-tune your guitar or just adjust the fine key/pitch to increments of 1/100th of a semi-tone. Fantastic! Ready to rock.
* The unit sound good!
* This unit has more features than I can almost count .. metronome, guitar effects, tuner, cancel lead guitar / karaoke, and more
* Plug in your guitar and you are in the mix with the CD recording. What a blast.
* Here are some constructive ideas / suggestions:
o The manual is geared to headphone users but the unit has an output for connection to a PA / powered speakers, but the output is a 1/8 inch stereo mini-(female) jack ... so sales engineers might offer customers the opportunity to buy an adapter ...to convert a guitar cable from 1/4 to 1/8 or you can't play it through your amp or PA
o Might remind buyers that when you enter a value or parameter there is no confirmation or enter key. Many displays will blink when you select something and stop blinking when your input value is accepted ... or have a separate enter key ....the manual has one small reference to the unit's logic/config ... so it might be worth mentioning that parameter/value selection is automatic and the user will not get a confirmation of entry or selection. Or, it could just be me.
* Bottom-line - an indispensable learning tool at an unbelievably low price. close [-]

The effects are nice sounding for the convenience of playing along with the CD you are listening to. The Exciter is great to get definition from the effects and the guitars tone. The distortion is a little week but I remedied the lack of punch by adding an ancient Arion Hot Watt II ( it has a light over drive) with built in Chorus to give more dynamics to the signal. If you use the distortion with dynamics with aid of an over drive before going into the CD-GT2 , put the distortion on 12 and tone on 11,set the Exciter 's mix at 11 and the process at 12 and then zero in to the desired sound. If you want heavier distortion put a strong foot pedal before going into the CD-GT2. If you are playing along with a CD, you can set this unit to mix you guitar on the left with the CD on the right. The reason I'm giving this unit a 4.5 and not a 5, is because they didn't include a noise gate in the effects section to shut the signal when playing ( I use the volume knob). close [-]
