“GTR3 is highly versatile and can be used to set up crazy effects loops that would take ages to set up with outboard equipment.”
“I'll be saving a fortune on pedal batteries. With its amp simulation capabilities, my days of lifting Marshall quadboxes up flights of stairs are thankfully behind me!”
“GTR3 sounds like any amp I can imagine, and is certainly easier to setup for recording and much more portable. With so many guitar amp simulators available, I hadn't expected any of them to stick their heads up so high above the group. With nearly unnoticeable latency, you can play away quite happily without feeling that your hands have to time travel. And the Guitar Interface does what normal DIs and audio interfaces just can’t, because they weren't built for guitars.”
“As far as the Stomps go, besides completing your guitar requirements with serious usability, they're perfect for adding life to drums or keyboards, with Buzz and AxxPress being my favorites. And with the added bonus of amazing quality and choice of mic modeling too, you're going to cut down on gear buying…and lifting!”
As members of Mogwai, guitarists Stuart Braithwaite and John Cummings have redesigned and redefined the aesthetics of guitar-driven rock. A favorite of guitarists and guitar aficionados alike, Mogwai has enjoyed enormous international success touring with the likes of The Cure and the Pixies.
Influenced by bands ranging from Joy Division, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine to Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and The Velvet Underground, Mogwai has, over the past decade, become one of the most innovative and influential ensembles in contemporary music. Their elaborate instrumental pieces are renowned for their dramatic dynamic contrasts, melodic bass riffs, and creative use of distortion and effects. And while their sound bears little resemblance to traditional punk rock, Mogwai retains a strong affinity for the punk ethic.
A staggering number of tracks from their 6 releases have been licensed for use in television, motion picture, and video game soundtracks. CSI: Miami has featured no fewer than 5 of their tracks, while other TV shows utilizing Mogwai music include Sex and the City, The Shield, and the UK’s massively popular The X Factor. They have also been heard on several major theatrical releases such as, Michael Moore’s Sicko, Michael Mann's Miami Vice, and Zidane: A 21st Century Portrait, which featured their original score. The music of Mogwai is also heard prominently on the soundtracks of several popular video games, including Major League Baseball 2K6 and Tony Hawk's Project 8.
