Zoom's G3X Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator Pedal combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard with the power of a multi-effects processor and USB audio interface. The G3X also features a new built-in expression pedal for added tone manipulation. With complete control over both individual effects and amp modeling, you can change your tones on the fly in both stage and studio settings.
Three Stomps. One Pedal. The G3X offers three large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to six stompbox and amp effects simultaneously. The interface has also been simplified with three control knobs for each display. This intuitive design makes creating, saving and rearranging the effect chain of your own sounds a breeze and provides easy navigation in live and studio settings.
New expression pedal adds parameter control. The expression pedal featured on the G3X allows you to control effect parameters including wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate, or delay/reverb mix and more in real time. And it's Auto Assign function enables the expression pedal as soon as you choose an effect, so you can start playing without any hassle.
Evolution of tube amp simulation. A newly developed sigmoid curve clipper re-creates the smooth clipping of a tube amp's waveform. With its tube distortion, the G3X can simulate amplifier sounds, including clean, crunch and full-gain drive tones that are authentic to the original models while maintaining the nuances of picking and strumming techniques.
Super-real amp modeling. The G3X's 13 super-real amp models range from vintage heads to the latest trends in amp technology, each with its own distinct cabinet modeling that can be used to alter its tone characteristics. By combining amplifiers and cabinets, you can digitally design your own custom rig. The G3X's modeling technology provides the best tone for both live performance and direct recording.
G3x Amp Models 94 world-renowned stompbox effects. The G3X offers 94 diverse types of stompbox effects, including some of the world's most popular guitar pedals and rack-mounted processors. You can use up to six effects in any combination. The G3X's wide range of effects includes distortion, compression, modulation, delay and reverb. Its HD Reverb uses DSP power to produce a rich resonance that rivals outboard gear used in professional studios and live setups.
The newest generation of DSP: ZFX-IV. The all-new ZFX-IV DSP effects processor boasts amazing power and clarity, upgrading everything from sound to functionality and operability over previous ZFX versions. By using 32-bit floating-point processing, the G3X can produce amplifier sounds that are more realistic than ever before.
Over 100 versatile effects on-board. Select from over 100 built-in DSP effects to create your own sounds on the G3X. Try its renowned compression and wah pedals, chorus effects with stunning depth and resonant reverbs. Or let your tonal imagination run free with dynamic flangers, tremolos, harmonized pitch shifters, multi-tap delays, reverse delays and much more. The G3X can store up to 100 of your original creations without a hitch.
Looper function with 40-second phrase recording/overdubbing. The G3X's Looper capabilities include 40 seconds of phrase recording and overdubbing. The "sound-on-sound" function allows you to layer guitar sounds as many times as you want in real time and use looped sounds as simple backing tracks. You can even create a "full band" feel with the built-in drum machine and DSP effects for a live solo.
Note: When the UNDO/REDO function is enabled, the recording time is limited to 20 seconds.
Your personal drummer. Every guitar player needs a drummer, and with the G3X you can choose from 40 different rhythm patterns, including 4, 8 and 16-beat, shuffle and many others. The tap key also makes it easy to set tempo and start a one-man jam session anytime.
USB audio interface for DAW recording. The G3X operates as an audio interface, letting you record directly to your computer via USB. All of your sound settings used during rehearsals or live performances can be recorded to your favorite DAW such as the included Steinberg Sequel LE recording software. The pedal's direct monitoring capability eliminates any latency issues, assuring realistic studio conditions and hassle-free operation.
Balanced XLR output for DI use. With its built-in XLR output, you can avoid DI boxes completely and directly connect the G3X to any mixing console and maintain a balanced, high quality signal. Its convenient Pre/Post switch can direct an effected sound to the main outputs while sending the original analog guitar signal directly to the XLR output without passing through an A/D converter.
