(updated 1/9/2024)

The "BLUESERIES" SUSTAINOR is currently awaiting delivery and will be available in January. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, as each item is handmade and produced in small quantities.

Here is a Q&A regarding the most frequently asked questions about the "BLUESERIES" SUSTAINOR.

Q. Is this a simulator that imitates the sound?

A. No. Each BLUESERIES model is a clone (analog specification) created by meticulously analyzing the original model and recreating the same sound again with modern technology and parts.

 

Q. Is it a limited edition?

A. Yes. It is a completely limited production. It will be discontinued as soon as the stock runs out.

 

Q. Where is the country of manufacture?

A. It is manufactured in Japan. Since each product is handmade in Japan, it is produced in small quantities and arrivals are always on a piecemeal basis. We apologize for any inconvenience caused when we sell out.

 

Q. Does SUSTAINOR work with a regular AC adapter or a commercial power supply?

A. Basically, a 9V center-minus AC adapter can be used, but this product consumes a lot of power in operation. There are many reports that existing AC adapters do not work properly due to insufficient capacity. Therefore, we strongly recommend using the dedicated AC adapter "GBL-DC1000" separately.If you are using multiple effectors with the power supply, please be aware that the power supply may not have enough capacity and may not work properly.

 

Q. Does SUSTAINOR work with batteries?

A. Yes. It does work, but only for about 10 minutes (using new alkaline batteries). Please think of SUSTAINOR as an emergency power supply in case the AC adapter or DC cable is disconnected during a live show or performance.

 

Q. What does "GATE" do?

A. Unlike most noise gates, the noise gate on this unit works at frequencies close to the noise, and does not close off all frequencies. This is the same functionality of the original SUSTAINOR machine. The trigger knob is used to adjust the level of the signal input to the gate, and as you turn it to the right, the gate will work at lower signal levels. (The gate is still functioning even when the knob is in the 0 position, and the LED lights up in response.)

 

Q. Can it be used as a preamp or in line?

A. Yes.The sound is perfect for line use.Because it isYou can connect it directly to your DAW and record that sound. This is a sound that can never be reproduced by plug-ins, and can only be achieved with a completely analog circuit. Of course, you can also use it as a preamplifier by plugging it into the return of an amplifier.

 

Q. If I have GENERATOR, is SUSTAINOR unnecessary?

A. While the GENERATOR is a model specialized in distortion, SUSTAINOR is a 2-channel model with a distortion channel and a clean channel that can be switched at any time, so it can be used in combination with the GENERATOR.

 

Q. Will BLUESERIES still be available?

A. Yes. We cannot give specifics yet, but as long as we receive requests from our customers, we will continue to pursue all possibilities and challenge ourselves to develop new models.

How was it? We hope that your questions have been answered. We are always happy to answer any other questions you may have, so please feel free to contact us at Sano.

We look forward to working with you on the "BLUESERIES" project! Please look forward to our next update!

(Update: 12/11/2023)

Thank you for your continued patronage of GOAT products!

We have received some questions about the noise gate function in this unit, and we would like to explain it to you.

Unlike most noise gates, the noise gate on this unit works at frequencies close to the noise and does not close all frequency bands. (ROCKMAN SUSTAINOR's original function).
The trigger knob is used to adjust the level of the signal input to the gate, and as you turn it to the right, the gate will work at lower signal levels. (The gate is still functioning even when the knob is in the 0 position, and the LED lights up in response.)

It is a very unique gate function! Please give it a try!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Sano at our store.

What does ROCKMAN SUSTAINOR sound like?https://youtu.be/h0eigtZd1Xc

GOAT "BLUESERIES" Project Team Sano

 

(updated 11/7/2023)

At last! At last, the proto is completed!

We had already made it look pretty good, but our goal was not to make it look good, but to make it the pinnacle of its kind. Our goal was not "good" but the pinnacle, the perfect reproduction of "that sound".

Even the developers were stunned, "You're still going to do that? even the developers were stunned and asked, "Are you still going to do it?We continued on our way. But it was all worth it, and now this day has arrived. I still can't contain my excitement.

The sound was originally very good and impeccable as a general distortion, but we could not compromise on the range of the sound that was unique to the Rockman era, such as the unique "kon-kon" compressor feel and the "koh-koh" sound. This was achieved.

Speaking of sustainers, not only distortion but also clean is essential! I had a hard time finding the right balance between distortion and clean. If you try to make the most of one, it will affect the other.However, it is not a matter of prioritizing one over the other, but both must have that sound.

Frankly speaking, we would have been able to complete the distortion alone much sooner. But that alone is not enough. It is not a sustainer without that clean. And today! At last, that thought has come true.

Another charm of the Sustainer. It is a preamp. This was also important. In analyzing the circuit, I came up with the idea that Tom Scholz probably aimed for a sound that could be used by connecting it to a desk. If so, it is nothing short of amazing that he would have thought of that at that time.

This product has the same finish, and yes, the sound is perfect even when played on line. This is.DTMusers.DAWand record with the same sound. This is a sound that can never be reproduced by plug-ins, and can only be achieved with a fully analog circuit. Of course, it is also powerful when plugged into the return of an amplifier!

 

We can't wait for you to hear this sound!

After this, we will be recording at a studio to create a video.

We hope to be able to report on this progress in the next issue.

 

We will announce the start of sales at a later date.

 (Updated 9/26/2023)

We finally received the prototype from the developer this time and did a sound check!

 

Last time it was just the base, but now that the chassis is actually finished, we can get a real feel for it with that sound!

The sound was greatly upgraded from the base sample.
The sound is much improved from the base sample, and is very close to the original! Some people even said, "Can't you tell the difference between the two? Some people even said, "You can't even tell the difference anymore!The result was so good that everyone was excited to release it soon, but there was one regrettable part....

We will not compromise!

The discussion became heated between those who wanted to release the product as soon as possible because it sounded so good, and those who wanted to make sure there were no compromises because they had made it this far!If you are reading this, you can probably guess which side of the argument we came to.We are very close. We can't wait to deliver this sound to you. Please look forward to it just a little longer.

Here is a fresh progress report today. Finally, the sample of the new product "SUSTAINOR" has been completed, and we played the sound! 

At the meeting, sound was discussed with actual explosions.

A more improved board will be ready for the next meeting!We hope that everyone will be able to hear the actual sound soon.

(Updated 7/27/2023)

I want to use ROCKMAN! But the originals are expensive and I'm worried about maintenance and breakdowns. I want to use a ROCKMAN, but the original is too expensive and I am worried about maintenance and breakdowns. We have been receiving many concerns such as "I want to use ROCKMAN!

GOAT "BLUESERIES" is a project that was born to solve these problems. The "GENERATOR(DISTORTION)", "STEREO CHORUS", and "STEREO ECHO" models have been released so far.

The project members are also ROCKMAN enthusiasts, and they have been thinking about the possibility of making the ROCKMAN as easy to use as a regular pedal, and have made it possible in MADE IN JAPAN.

Compared to the original model, it is more compact and easier to use!

And now, we are challenging to reproduce the "SUSTAINOR" which has been said to be impossible for a long time.

SUSTAINOR" is an all-around player that can express everything from high-gain distortion to blue sky clean sounds, and is also equipped with a noise gate.

I really want that sound! How can we make it easier to use? We are now searching for the answer!

There have been many ROCKMAN models in the past, and we believe that the GOAT "BLUESERIES" project is the only way to make this happen.

(Update 7/4/2023)

How was the last video?

Actually, Sano hadn't played the actual machine in a while, so it was quite fresh and fun.

Including the texture of distortion and the superb clean sound, I once again felt that SUSTANOR is wonderful! I was impressed once again by the quality of the distortion and the superb clean sound. Personally, I think it is a guitar sound that symbolizes the American rock of the 80's.

Now, I would like to show you the internal board of the SUSTANOR, which is currently under development!

The parts are all lined up in a narrow space! This is how the LEDs light up when the switch is turned on and off!

I hope everyone who buys this product will enjoy comparing it with the real SUSTAINOR. Or, you can enjoy playing BOSTON songs at home. I am imagining how it would be like.

BLUESERIES" project will continue to move forward together with all of you! Please look forward to the next information!

(Update 5/30/2023)

I played ROCKMAN SUSTAINOR again this time!

Unlike the DISTORTION GENERATOR, the SUSTAINOR is basically a 2-channel unit, allowing you to switch between, for example, channel 1 for distortion sounds and channel 2 for clean sounds. In addition, it is loaded with features such as a SMART GATE to suppress noise!

In particular, the clean sound provided by clean 1 (including semi-clean) and clean 2 is unique to this SUSTAINOR! We will pay special attention to this sound when developing new products!

 

We can't wait to see the proto!

(Update 5/10/2023)

Currently,SUSTAINORThe engineering team is still struggling to launch SUSTAINOR.

We have just received some very special information from the development team, and we would like to share it with you today.May 10 (GOAT day)We would like to introduce it to you today, May 10 (GOAT day)!

The other day, we told you that the circuit board was almost completed! We have already told you that the board is almost completed,

 

Finally! Here is a picture of the board! 

 

 

 

What do you think? The many parts crammed into a small space can clearly show how difficult it was to develop!

We are still in the process of testing, so we can't try out the sound yet or show you everything clearly, but even just looking at these pictures, you may wonder "What kind of distortion sound does it have? What about the clean sound? But just by looking at these pictures, you can imagine the endless possibilities of what the distortion sounds like, and how it sounds clean!

The entire BLUESERIES project staff is extremely excited!

 

We are very excited about the "BLUESERIES" project and look forward to working with you in the future! Please look forward to the next information!

GOAT "BLUESERIES" Project Team Sano

 

(Update 5/2/2023)

 We have received a report from development that the substrate for SUSTAINOR is almost ready!

 

In terms of normal usage, the DISTORTION GENERATOR is more of a drive, and the SUSTAINOR is positioned as a preamp.

SUSTAINOR is,compressor to adjust the input gain, and it also has a smart gate (noise gate). There are two types each of distortion and clean, and many people are soothed by the sparkling clean tone of clean 2 in particular, which has become a popular model even today.

 

Diagram of the DISTORTION/FILTERS section of the original ROCKMAN SUSTAINOR

 

The SUSTAINOR currently under development will be the final weapon of the "BLUESERIES" that brings together the three models released so far (GOAT GENERATOR/STEREO CHORUS/STEREO ECHO). The model will be the final weapon of the "BLUESERIES".

Moreover, since the distortion sound of the DISTORTION GENERATOR and SUSTAINOR are different from each other, it is a model that makes equipment maniacs cry because only that model can express that sound.

We are a mixture of anxiety about whether we can really achieve this and the desire to share the sound with you as soon as possible!

Please look forward to the next information!

(Update 4/18/2023)

GOAT "BLUESERIES" New Information!

Last time, we reported that we had actually disassembled the SUSTAINOR and were in the process of analyzing it..,

Now, we are struggling with pattern design!

 

 

 

This is not a simple task.

 

 

How can we fit so many circuits with so many functions into the size of a pedal? The fun never ends!

 

The project is already on its way to realization!

The "BLUESERIES" project will continue to move forward together with all of you! Please stay tuned for more information.

Please look forward to the next GOAT "BLUESERIES" information.

 

=========================================================== 

(2023/4/1)

The next GOAT "BLUESERIES" project will be

SUSTAINOR" is coming soon!

 *This is an illustration under development, specifications and design may be subject to change.

 

SUSTAINOR" was released in the late 1980s, and many guitarists marveled at the unique world view of its distinctive sound. The rack type is not always easy to use, and the number of existing good products is decreasing, and those who already own one say they are worried about when it will break.

So we came up with an idea.

We thought, "Everyone should be able to easily obtain the rack type. We also thought we had to make a pedal that was compact and easy for anyone to use in order to eliminate the hassle of rack equipment.

 

It has been more than 30 years since its release,

Have we ever been able to reproduce the ROCKMAN SUSTAINOR in a satisfactory form?

There may have been electronic simulations in the past, but in an era when there were no circuit diagrams, it was a daunting task just to disassemble the actual product, disassemble the inside, follow the wiring from the inputs one by one to check the elements, and analyze the exact circuit.
The only person we could ask to do this was a Japanese engineer who had analyzed the GENERATOR. This time, he managed to accept our wishes and contacted us that he is currently struggling with the project.

 

 

The project is already on its way to realization!

The "BLUESERIES" project will continue to move forward together with all of you! Please keep your eyes on us.
