    I watched a video, and they said they did extensive testing to the sound files coming from the instruments and compared them to standard (non TGC equipped) instruments, and they were identical when a TGC instrument was set to a "default" position. So ... you are capable of getting the normally available tones and sounds from the instrument as well as nearly infinite other combinations.

    It was mentioned in one of TGC videos that wiring can be done (coil 1 + coil 2 ) or (coil 2 + coil 1) with each having a different tone. Can you explain how that works?

    Yes, TGC will be firware upgradable, and the application will have updates as well (ainly for upgrades, and hopefully not bugs).

    The Game Changer circuitry does not color the sound in any way.

    Sorry about the redundancy. I must have missed it in the videos. I will try to be more focused. Guess I am too hyped by TGC

    This is so true.

    I contacted sales and was told to contact UK MM dealers. Two dealers had no idea and said they would contact MM. Neither has got an answer. I'll sit and wait until more is known, but it might be good if MM confirmed when it was available, or told their dealers.

    Thanks for this answer, that's exactly what was bothering me for a while!

    Now TGC is even more interesting to me!
