Effects, Amps and Cabinets
Zoom has equipped the G3Xn with enough effects for even the most textured guitarist. The amplifier and cabinet modes allow users to DI their guitar straight to an audio interface whilst still getting classic speaker tone. The modes include classic amplifier sounds from Fender, MESA Boogie, Marshall and more. The controls on the G3Xn accurately reflect the parameters of each amplifier, so you can tweak it to the classic tones. The range of effects and parameters that can be accessed allow you to build complex layers and textures. The on board EQ and compression ensures that your signal is never lost. All of the effects can be aligned in your own chain setting to create your signature sound.
The G3Xn’s benefits don’t stop at the unit itself. Thanks to downloadable software, you can connect it to you Mac/PC for even more resources. The 75 custom patches focus on the signature sounds for artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Carlos Santana and many more. The Zoom database is always being updated, so the number of available patches is ever increasing.
The expression pedal featured on the G3Xn is ideal for making mid-song adjustments. It can achieve simple movements such as volume changes, all the way to specific parameters on an effect. In a live situation, this is ideal for adding intensity to a chorus or solo section. In the studio, it allows musicians to carefully make intricate mixing adjustments out of the box. The expression pedal is also ideal for achieving the tone of your guitar heroes such as Jimi Hendrix. The G3Xn’s expression pedal will quickly become incorporated into your playing style.
Create Your Performance
A musician should never stop learning. This is why the G3Xn is packed with features to take from your bedroom to the stage. Before playing, there’s an integrated tuner that can either bypass the effects or mute your output, which is ideal for live use. The 68 built-in rhythm patterns can be used to jam, practise and even perform independently. The looper is a classic effect for singer songwriters, recording phrases of up to 80 seconds long that can still run through your effects chain. There’s even an auxiliary input for using playback from your smartphone to jam along to.
