Whether you love or loathe technology, you’ll find the GW-7 to be simple, straightforward, and inviting to use. No extensive knowledge of synthesis or sequencing is required to use this intuitive instrument. It’s the perfect first-time workstation for standard pop, jazz, and world-music styles, but its sound quality and styles are rich and expressive enough to attract professionals as well.
The GW-7 comes equipped with a wide variety of pre-programmed Styles, which can be customized. In all, there are 101 Styles onboard, with 99 User memory locations. Choose from a trio of band types: Drum & Bass, Combo, and Full Band. You can also create your own compositions from scratch with the internal 16-track sequencer. 99 song locations are provided for storing your compositions and arrangements.
Connect the GW-7 to a computer with one simple USB cable, and transfer data back and forth quickly and easily. Keep your GW-7 well stocked with fresh songs and Styles by loading new Styles and Standard MIDI Files. Save your compositions and arrangements via USB.
Expressive Performance Features
The GW-7 is made to be played. And not just on its keyboard, this workstation offers an invisible, front-panel D Beam (wave your hands over the beam to color your sound), plus a pitch-bend/modulation lever, and a pair of control knobs. Performers will appreciate the GW-7’s large backlit LCD, especially on dark stages and dimly lit studio environments.
