Yes and no the G system is a G Major that can be used as a "foot board" or can be rack based with the foot control unit seperate. The foot controller can also be used to switch amp channels and pedal effects.

The G-System is more of a downgraded G-Force to enable more live playability and live tweakability. The G-System does not have any dead tone if you switch presets.

Neither does the G-Major.

The G-System has a little more than the G-Major and a little less than the G-Force. You can´t tweak all the effects with the G-System as you could with the G-Force, but you can switch effects without having the intermission.

Actually the G-Major is good to go for normal needs.

If you want something speacial, I´d go for an Eventide, not a G-Force. The G-System is very good for live playability. So if you think about what you need you should be able to figure out what you take. If you want simly Delay, Reverb, some normal pitch stuff compressor blabla the G-Major is enough.

what effect are you talking about?

If you mean the short delay with a little more feedback, then yes. As far as I know the G-Major and G-Force have the same effects, but with the G-Force you can go more into depth, but this is usually not necessary.

You realize that the recording of ALS predates the Legacy by about four or five years, right?
