Finished programming my GC last week and I just thought I would say that what a dramatic improvement it has made. I am having a much easier time getting my loops timed properly, and having control over my regeneration in echo mode given me a whole new lease on life/looping. I got a fairly descent deal on the GC too (found it used) and the ROM update (you have to run 2.0 or better, I think to have it work) was pretty cheap. Programming it is not tricky, just a bit tedious. The effort is worth it though. I heartily recommend on to anyone having trouble with the standard pedal, and I would be willing to give my standard pedal up to anyone who would want to pay for the shipping/cod/whatever. I get to keep the stereo cable, though, as it may come in handy for other things.... Trev PS- Is there any way to control the input gain via midi? I doubt it, but I would find it very useful. My old volume pedal works out ok, except for a bit of noise every now and then.
