UPDATE #2: No, it’s not Vaporware

It’s been a long time since our last MGP-1A update and the reason is simple: It’s not the most exciting stuff. There were some tweaks, production model PCB and chassis redesign, packaging design, and even a European wedding thrown in there. But now, the t’s are crossed and the i’s are all dotted, so there’s only one thing left to do…launch.

The MGP-1A Modeling Guitar Preamp production model has some significant changes, which we will go over here:

– Changed the styling and physical size of the unit, reducing it from 3 rack spaces to 2.
– MIDI functionality has been added.
– Improved the accuracy of some models.
– Swapped certain models for more tonal diversity.

We’ve also made some other important changes that you should know about. If you are reading this, you are reading it on our newly-designed website. It’s now far more mobile and tablet friendly, and it is easier to get the information you are looking for. We will be adding an FAQ section soon, so let us know anything you might be curious about.

And finally, we will not be using Kickstarter to launch. Too many of you voiced your concerns and we agree. Instead, we will soon be taking pre-orders (but not before another round of sound clips). More pre-order details will be released soon. Stayed tuned!
