  • Page 19: Selecting Amp/cabinet Models, Adjusting Amp Parameters

    The first step to editing an Amp Model, Cabinet Type, or creating your own HyperModel™ is to select the Amp and Cabinet types for the Green and Red Amp channels in your Preset.To do this, the GNX1 must be in the Performance mode which is indicated by the LED next to the Status button lighting yellow.

    ECTION HREE FFECTS AND ARAMETERS Triggered Phaser (TRGPHA) A Triggered Phaser is the same sound as a regular Phaser but allows you to choose the starting point of the Phaser sweep. In a regular Phaser, the low frequency oscillator (LFO) is continually changing the phase of the signal. This means that when you begin to play, the phaser may be at the any random point of the phase.With a Triggered Phaser, every time the signal exceeds the Sensitivity level setting, the Phaser will begin at the point of phasing that you designate with the value of the LFO Start Parameter.
