No more “it is almost there!”, rather “it is here, really!!!”.
We have put an enormous work behind us. It was mentioned here on the forum that “Andras is a one man engineering team”. While this was the case in the beginning, the Future Impact v3 as released today is a product well beyond what any single individual could have accomplished. Over the last few months an extremely talented international team helped me, and the FI v3 is the result of our joint effort.
Let us all recognize and applaud the members of the team:
- Peter Kenney (UK): Product design, writing the User Guide , editor testing, sound design.
- Gabor Lippenyi (Hungary): Product design, sound design, studio recordings, creating the video demo.
- Zsolt Rammer (Hungary): PC and MAC Editor coding, graphics, sound design.
- Gabor Gerenyi (Hungary): Product design, sound design, marketing.
- Simon Iten (Switzerland): Product design from the very beginning, sound design.
- Gergely Barcza (Israel): Design concept for EWI mode, EWI mode sound design, and demo recording.
- Geza Barcsik (Hungary): main graphics designer.
You can find all product details at http://pandamidi.com. Let me cite here just a few of the most important features:
- modular type synthesis with flexi controllers
- true multi effects processing
- bass, guitar and wind instrument modes
- ADSR envelopes
- VCO3 and 4 acts as an extra LFO
- redesigned look
- new lower price
- lifetime warranty
- and as a last days result, integrated sound program database in the editor!
It is important to note, that the electronics of the FI v3 is identical with the FI I., so your current devices can be software-upgraded to be functionally identical with FI v3. Watch the video demo showing all the 99 amazing new sounds, cca. 10 seconds from each. Also you will find on our web page the FI 3.00 software upgrade with the bank of the new sounds and all documentation, naturally ALL FREE OF CHARGE!
I signed the bottom plate of the first 20 FI v3. Hurry if you want to get one of them!
Finally, I would like to thank everyone on this forum for your help, comments, critiques and suggestions during the development. These all contributed to giving you a better product. Enjoy!
Roland GR-55 with :
- GK-3B divided bass pick up (147GBP new)
- Roland GKC-5 Midi cable (47GBP new)
- Usb cable connector
- All the original cables and converters, manuals
- No original Box
The synth works for guitar or bass, the pick up is only for bas
Everything is as new, perfectly functional and without a single scratch, used the machine only to practice and for studio sessions.
The Roland GR-55 is a revolution in guitar synthesis, with features never before available in any guitar processor. In terms of speed, it’s the fastest ever. It’s also the most accurate, thanks to newly developed pitch-detection technology.
As for sound, the triple-core generator houses a world-class array of virtual guitars, basses, amps, and synth voices, enabling tones and textures that have never been heard before.
Onstage or in the studio, you can instantly access the GR-55’s huge library of ready-to-use sounds, from pop to rock and beyond, with quick-access category buttons. Welcome to a groundbreaking new era in guitar synthesis!
New Sound Possibilities
The GR-55’s powerful triple-core engine comprises two PCM synthesizers (with over 900 tones powered by the latest Roland synthesis technology) and COSM® guitar modeling, featuring a virtual treasure trove of guitar, bass, amp, and synth models. Together, these combined technologies allow you to create unique, revolutionary sounds. The “Metal Synth Lead” preset, for example, combines two types of thick, brilliant synth textures with an overdriven solid-body/humbucking tone for incredible punch and power.
Thanks to Roland’s decades of research and dedication to guitar synthesizers and powerful new pitch detection technology, the GR-55 is far and away the fastest guitar synth ever. Furthermore, the COSM guitar-modeling engine needs zero detection time, allowing the GR-55 to respond instantly and exactly as you play. The GR-55 detects pitch, velocity, and behavior for unprecedented response to your performance.
Get ready to rock…and fast! The GR-55 puts you instantly in touch with a huge library of amazing sounds, no editing required. The onboard lineup of ready-to-use presets (270, plus 297 user) takes the pain out of the process, with simple category buttons for finding the perfect sound fast. Choose from hundreds of great presets for pop, rock, and beyond, and kick-start your song or jam with unique, powerful sounds that will turn heads and raise fists.
Easy to Use
If you’re new to the world of technology, fear not. The GR-55 is powerful yet extremely friendly. For customizing sounds, the EZ Edit feature (made famous in the GT-10) and large LCD takes the guesswork out of the process. And for those who want to go deep, the GR-55 offers huge array of controllable parameters. Pros will appreciate the power of the GR-55 while beginners will love how quick and easy the unit is to operate.
The GR-55 conveniently bridges the guitarist to the desktop music production world with its two USB ports. The rear-panel port can be used one for MIDI/Audio data communication; the side-panel port is dedicated to real-time playback of audio files from a USB memory device (sold separately). The GR-55 provides foot control of USB audio playback so your hands never need to leave the guitar
