Not great tones using an electric.
K. 11.11.2020
You can select acoustic or electric in the settings and I was only interested in the electric to acoustic setting. There is a bass boom on the 5th and 6th strings which could not be totally eq'd out on the in built 3 band eq. There is also a very metallic jangle added to simulate the acoustic guitar but it gives off strange high frequencies which would scare off a cat! So you get a very synthetic sound which is weak and shallow. I tried all my guitars and found tele single coils to be the best although this adds its own unwanted noise. Using my DAW allowed more sound shaping to get a passable strumming/finger picked tone but I would only use it with other instruments, it would not stand well on its own. However, it does give tonal options which can be effective with other pedals/effects, as long as you don't want a true acoustic tone. Be careful where you put this in your pedal chain, it needs to be upstream of effects. The usb connection does not power the pedal, it is only for the app which just duplicates the settings on the pedal itself but in a more friendly view. You get a short cable which is useless when on the floor in your pedal chain, so the app is of no use to me.

An update a few months down the road. I am not using this at all now and regret the purchase.

Clean sound with no noise (using solid body Electric guitar).
StratfordBob 29.06.2020
This arrived in a box floating about with no packaging.
When I switched it on the presests were not in the order they should have been & some had been edited. So either had been out & returned or used inhouse ? But it was sold as new.
The button was not working.
Did factory reset & configured the presets to how I wanted & the pedal was working except it defaulted some settings after power down. Reset it again and it seems ok now.
I have tried it into a clean amp & DI to PA both nice and clean.
You will need to drop some lower frequenies to stop it distorting on some of the presets.
I found some presets work better on the middle/bridge pickups & some on the neck pickup.
There is some very usable presets when tweaked to your rig, and liked the editor better than the pedal menu, they sound exellent in a mix.
If only it was midi switchable.

Etwas Akustik bitte...
Bandit100 03.03.2021
Ein optisch und haptisch ansprechendes Gerät - das sei vorab schon einmal gesagt. Die Verarbeitung ist, wie bei vielen industriell hergestellten Produkten, nicht zu beanstanden. Was aber kann das?

Der Plan mittels Samplesounds aus einer E eine A - Gitarre zu machen ist natürlich von einigen Faktoren abhängig. Als da wären...die Gitarren, die Verstärker, Lautsprecher...Probiert habe ich das Gerät mit einer Halbakustik mit P90 Pickups. Absolut hörbar ist der Eingriff - ob es wie eine A Gitarre klingt - eher nicht. Dann kam die Telecaster an die Reihe. Mit einfachen Singlecoils hört sich das Ganze schon anders an. Direkt über Kopfhörer gehört und ich muss sagen - als Kontextgitarre in einer Aufnahme - absolut okay. Getestet habe ich allerdings nur mit ganz kleinen Boxen - ich gehe davon aus, daß über einen entsprechend großen Lautsprecher die Samples wirklich gut zu hören sind.

Was mich dann aber überraschte war - das Gerät verfügt über die Möglichkeit einer Programmierung (EQ, A- oder E-Gitarre), wie sich die kleine Kiste mit einem Piezo einer Westerngitarre macht...erster Eindruck - die Samples entziehen diesem schrecklichen Grundsound absolut die Spitzen und selbst über kleine Boxen wird es mehr zu einer Akustikgitarre als ich es mit dem Boss - ich weiß grad nicht, wie er heißt - AcoustikPiezoGitarrenschön jemals hinbekommen habe.

Fazit: In meinem Fall für eine Halbakustik wohl eher nicht so geeignet, Singlecoil von Tele und Strat funktionieren ganz gut und am Besten geht Piezo in schön....

Je nachdem wofür man es einsetzen möchte - kann die Anschaffung durchaus ein Gewinn sein. - Notfalls als kleiner "Goldbarren" für´s Regal - wenn alle Stricke reißen - aber es macht durchaus Spaß, sich damit ein wenig auszuprobieren.
