im currently using the GX 700 to both play and record my guitar.
Had it nearly from when it first come out...a long long time ago.
Ive been checkin out the GT-Pro ...is it worth the upgrade?
looks kinda similar.
Ive seen this has a USB port, would come in handy to record a little easier...as long as the sound quality is as good.
Any advice would be cool! thanks!

Sound quality is very good through the USB cable, and easy to record. I like recording a dry guitar, and then re-recording it with effects till I get it how I want. I also just learned how to use the editing software that comes with the Pro which makes editing patches while recording so much easier!

I recommend the pro, too.
Great editor and very good audio qualtiy using the USB connection... 8)
EDIT: And - off course - it would be nice to see the "pro" community grow! :D

Im gonna get a lil bit more cash in then buy myself it for christmas lol
looking forward to christmas already! :)
...do you think the effects quality wouldve improved? since the GX700 came out about what...8 years ago? They mustve done!
oh well will find out in a couple of months :)
I love my GX700 so much that i actually looked on ebay to try and buy another one, because i was thinking i dont know what i would do if it broke and i lost all my custom made sounds i use.
*i dropped it with the guitar cable plugged in, and it landed directly on that sticking out cable, which made the input port a little loose*
Then i suddenly thought, wait a damn minute! lol ...theres gotta be something even better now! ...hence finding the GT-Pro and this forum :)
its sooo tempting because my local music store has one of these babies in right now... *slaps hand* leave that wallet alone! lol

Well, yes, upgrade to something, I'd say.....
But don't overlook the 8; the Pro and the 8 really aren't that far apart, esp. when you consider the price difference.....and I say that as a happy Pro owner....

Yea unless you already have a rackmount setup going on and do want to use the USB recording I'd say just go for the GT-8

I've also been happily playing with a GX-700 for many years, and now i've already sold it at ebay. The GT-Pro is substituting the GX-700 and a Marshall JMP-1 and I can tell you that now I would never go back to that old gear. The GT-Pro can beat them both together! 8) so I think you've made the right decision seling the GX.
You can also consider Aerial's suggestion: if you're not playing with other rack equipment and you don't need the USB recording, there's the GT-8 that have exactly the same quality as the GT-Pro. In my case I've chosen the Pro because I have a Roland VG-8 on the floor and I'm using other rack equipment (I've sold an Eventide H3000 to buy the Eclipse)

Well Thanks for the replies!
I think the GT-Pro is the way forward for me, and maybe also the Roland FC-200 foot pedals. Ive seen somewhere that its makes a good combo. Unless you guys will say otherwise :)

I recommend the behringer FCB1010! :idea:
It has 2 expression pedals and is extremely flexible!!

Yea but the FC-200 is a hell of a lot easier to set up and work with the Pro. Although its like almost twice as much $ too..

I've never worked with MIDI equipment until I got my gt-pro and the fcb1010. ok, I needed some days to set up the fcb correctly. but now I can do almost every thing I want to do. And I don't use the fcb-editor... :wink:

Well, just being consistent, I gues: I have the FC-200 and while it works really well, I don't think it's worth the money either. Don't get me wrong -- no regrets and I have no intention of selling it, but it's just that over the years I've had the -200 a) I haven't used it enough to warrant the original price, and b) I think it could've been better designed.
Now, I do like the amazing amount of flexibility I've got with it compared to my friends who have the 8.
