About Zoom G3

The Zoom's G3 Guitar Effects and amp Simulator combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard with the power of a multi-effects processor and USB audio interface. With complete control over individual effects and amp modeling, you can change your tones on the fly for both stage and studio.

The G3 offers three large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to three 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.

G3's 13 super-real amp models range from vintage 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 from different makers, you can digitally design your own custom rig. G3's modeling technology provides the best tone for both live performance and direct recording.

Zoom G3 Features

  • Evolution of tube amp simulation: A newly developed sigmoid curve clipper re-creates the smooth clipping of a tube amplifier's waveform. With its faithful tube distortion, G3 can simulate amplifier sounds, including clean, crunch and full-gain tones that are authentic to the original models
  • 94 stompbox models: G3 has 94 diverse types of stompbox presets, including some of the world's most popular guitar pedals. You can use up to three effects in any combination. G3's wide range of effects includes distortion, compression, modulation, delay and reverb
  • The newest generation of DSP (ZFX-IV): G3 utilizes the all-new ZFX-IV DSP effects processor. This generation of ZFX boasts amazing power, upgrading everything from sound to function and operability over previous versions
  • Looper function with 40-second phrase recording/overdubbing: G3'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
  • USB audio interface for DAW recording: G3 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
  • 100 versatile effects on-board: Select from 100 built-in DSP effects to create your own sounds on G3. Try its renowned compression and wah pedals, chorus effects with stunning depth and resonant reverbs
  • Integrated drum machine: Choose from 40 different rhythm patterns, including 4, 8 and 16-beat, shuffle and many others. The tap key also makes it easy to directly set the tempo and start a jam session anytime
  • Balanced XLR output for DI use: With its built-in XLR output, you can avoid DI boxes completely and directly connect G3 to any mixing console and maintain a balanced, high quality signal
  • Output modes for stage or studio: Different output modes allow you to optimize G3's tones based upon its connection with your personal rig. In addition to modes for the front inputs of combo and stack amps, G3 can be used as a preamp when connected to a power amp input
  • Add a G3 to your pedalboard: G3 is perfect for use in combination with traditional stompboxes. By adding a G3 to your pedalboard, you will decrease the size and complexity of your setup, while expanding your system's effects and modeling capabilities
  • Accurate, real-time Tuner function: Whether you're in the middle of a performance or practicing alone in your room, simply hold down the pedal's center footswitch to start getting your strings back on pitch
  • World's fastest patch change speed (1 ms): With G3's amazing 1 ms patch change speed, you will never miss a beat. Change from rhythm playing to a solo in an instant by simply pushing the switch
  • Runs on batteries, AC adapter, or USB power: G3 can operate on three different power sources: AC adapter (included), batteries or USB bus power when plugged into your computer
  • Super-low noise design: G3's signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB and noise floor of -100 dBm virtually eliminate background noise. G3's ZNR noise reduction removes feedback and other unwanted sounds, providing you with beautiful tones and natural release
  • Optional expression pedal and footswitch: Connect an optional FP02 expression pedal to G3 and control effect parameters such as wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate and delay/reverb mix in real time
  • Free Edit&Share software for Mac/PC: Zoom's Edit&Share software, which is available as a free download for G3, allows you to create, edit and save your personalized amp and effect settings on your computer
