Guitarists and bassists can directly connect an instrument and play with flagship-level amps and effects derived from the GT-1000 Guitar Effects Processor. Dedicated vocal effects from the popular VE series allow users to sing with effects like compression, pitch correction, delay, and reverb, and it’s even possible to dial up harmonies that automatically follow a set key. Effects are also available for speaking—including fun voice transformer effects—along with console effects to enhance the sounds of connected sources.
With Gigcaster’s color touch display, hands-on controls, and smooth workflow, it’s simple to perform complicated streaming tasks using nothing but the hardware. Users can mix sources with faders and mute buttons, view signal levels on screen, and access a deep selection of sound and routing tools with intuitive control. Customizable pads are available to trigger sounds and change up effects with a touch. There’s also extensive support for hands-free control via footswitches, expression pedals, and the GA-FC or GA-FC EX foot controllers.
