    i do a lot of recording and needed a decent FX processor for my strat.

    this thing smokes with my basses too!

    guitar center blow out at $445.00.

    nice real time knobbers too.

    30 days to decide whether to keep it.

    so far, so good.

    I love my GT-6B, and its close enough to the GT-8 except for bass. How do you like your 8? You should try assigning parameters to the expression pedal.

    love it so far.

    i have a VG8 and this thing is much easier and fun to use.

    thinking about getting one of the new Spector Guitars to use with this beasty.

  4. Yes. I got a GT-8B a couple of months ago and think it's great.

    i can't quit playing with this thing.

    just hooked up the digital i/o into my EMU 1820M soundcard.

    the 1820M has midi too, so i can access the sysex through a couple of free GT editor/librarians.

    i've been plugging my Rob Allen fretless 4 into the GT8, bypassing the guitar amp mods, but running through the guitar sims and effects.

    my goodness...heaven on earth.
