    Not mine, just got a good chuckle when I saw this. They had some cool stuff out in the 80's. :hiP

    I had one. I also had an X-15 Ultrafoot. And the matching SGX-2000 Express.

    Ahh, splatter purple graphics. Nothing says rock and roll like splatter purple on your gear. :D

    I had one, too. Back in the early to mid 1990's. Actually, I had this "other" one shown in the photo below. I used it to control my ART "SGX Nitro" (also shown in the photo below)...

    Ahh, SGX-2000... Now there's a blast from the past. Never owned one, but borrowed a friends and played with it for about a week. Unfortunately, I didn't much care for it.

    First off, I think most (or all) of that ART stuff is actually 90s... which might be more embarassing...

    I had one of these. It was actually really cool. No modeling, but sounded great into any amp.

    Was it the SGX-2000 that had the "Sandman metal" preset? Because I rocked out to that a TON when I was 16.

    I used to have a Yamaha FX500 and actually recorded direct into a small 4 track recorder and it sounded...well it was ok, but for the time it was pretty impressive.

    What makes me laugh is that I used to have an old Alesis SR16 drum machine at the same time AND THEY STILL MAKE THEM. :)

    This just shows you how cheaply a controller can be had if you don't care what it looks like

    Hmmm. seems to be a small correlation forming between Axe-Fx owners and former ART SGX-2000 owners. could there be a connection?

    j/k


    I like the look; pink and gray in pseudo 3D pattern on a black backround. It really matched my purple and blue guitars / basses from my hair metal days.

    :p

    I had an ART T-2 (still have it) we'll see how long my 11R lasts.
    The T-2 was a lot of work but could be made to sound very good. Not user friendly live.

    Whew! I have an FCB1010 and I thought this thread meant that I was a nerd. But now I see that I'm only a nerd if it has purple splatters on it. Now I am a hip person again...my kid once again does not know what he is talking about. Thank you for all your help.

    had the SGX T2 as well, with the X-15. Yeah, pretty ugly, but I had some fun playing that back in the day.

    I had an X-15...it was a terrible midi controller. The exp pedals moved in 'steps', so the values would go something like 0,23,46,58,75,91,100. It could only send program changes, and it required some serious force to push the buttons. I had it controlling an SGE Mach II which boasted that 'it is always upgradeable' and 'never becomes obsolete'. This is pre-internet, so upgrades were done via EEPROM chips mailed to you. Unfortunately it sounded like ass, like most digital effects of the era. I never bought any ART stuff again, and it looks like not many other people did either.

    This - I think - is actually from 1980's.
