OK, since I’m a techie and a musician I’m interested in gear, and I figured this would be a good place to write about some that I’ve used.

Several years ago I wrote a review of the BOSS WP-20G Wave Processor, a Roland Ready stomp box that works with a hex pickup, for my main website. I no longer make it easy to find that review on my main site but have left it there since a number of people have linked to it. Here is a copy of that review that I’ve put here on the SyntheSpider site.

One piece of gear I’ve been using a lot recently is the Roland GR-30 Guitar Synthesizer. I expect to be using it to create a video for the Roland Guitar Synth Challenge. So this article will describe my experiences with the GR-30 in various situations.
