Roland Teams Up With Fender to Deliver The GC-1-3TS V-Guitar Stratocaster:Ever since they introduced the GR-500 guitar synth to the world in 1977, the visionaries at Roland have been staunchly committed to making the quintessential electronic guitar. Now, working together with Fender in 2012, Roland proudly ushers in a new age with the GC-1 V-Guitar. All the functions of the Roland GK-3 divided pickup unit are seamlessly integreated into the classic Fender Stratocaster, enabling you to drive the GR-55, VG-99, and other 13-pin compatible gear. As well as its futuristic functionality, it also provides classic Fender Stratocaster sound and feel.
With a single GK cable, you can conveniently connect the GC-1 to a VG-99 or GR-55. This is all you need to tap into a world of sound through COSM modeling or guitar synthesis. The GC-1 is also capable of converting your performance into MIDI data via a VG-99 or GR-55, so you can use it as a MIDI controller to record your guitar performances directly to a DAW.
GR-55: A New Era of Sound, Power, & Performance
The GR-55 compatible with the GC-1 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.
