BASS EFFECTS CONSOLE
Z-Pedal opens up new dimensions
The built-in Z-type expression pedal developed by Zoom captures up/down and
sideways movement for controlling more effect parameters with subtle changes. In
addition to conventional expression pedal parameters such as volume, wah, or
pitch shift, you can control the mixing balance between direct and
synthesizer/drive sound, adjust the rate of modulation effects or control the
delay/reverb mixing level. The Z-pedal lets you build highly complex sounds by
assigning up to four parameters each in the vertical and horizontal direction. Of
course, there are also effects specially designed for use with the Z-pedal for a
completely new realm of bass pedal performance.

layers over the loop. You can overdub several phrases in real time, or play a solo
with looped phrases in the background for a great live performance.
Advanced user interface optimized for use on stage
Designed with all the functionality
and ease of a traditional amplifier,
the preamp section on the B9.1ut
lets you make gain, level, and
6-band EQ adjustments on the fly.
In every aspect, the advanced user interface of the B9.1ut is designed for stress-free,
efficient operation, letting you achieve the tone you want so you can focus on your
performance. The foot switches are highly flexible and can be assigned to patch
changes, bank changes, module on/off switching, hold delay on/off switching,
bypass/mute control, tap tempo input and more.

World's fastest patch change : 7ms
With the fastest patch change available, the B9.1ut eliminates dropout when
switching patches. Its record-setting speed of 0.007 seconds means the B9.1ut
literally never misses a beat. Change the patch in the beginning, middle or end of a
solo, or any other time during your performance, without dropout.
The Zoom B9.1ut bass effects console combines the most technically
advanced audio engine with the warmth of a classic 12AU7 tube to
produce the richest tones imaginable. Its ultra fast ZFX-3 processor means
all the world’s most famous amplifiers, cabinets and effects are modeled
with stunning accuracy. For the discerning bassist, the B9.1ut represents an
impressive and powerful solution for creating rich, detailed bass tone.
96 kHz Sampling Provides
High Resolution for Sonic Accuracy
Delivering high-resolution, 96kHz sampling
processing with 24-bit A-to-D and D-to-A
conversion, the B9.1ut rivals the processing
equipment found in the finest studios. This means
that the wide pitch, timbre and dynamic ranges
created by modern bass styles are handled without
degradation, ensuring clear, transparent sound.
The world of bass at your feet.
With the world s most famous bass amplifiers and stomp boxes at your disposal, you
have all the low-end drive and sonic transparency of timeless classics. From Ampeg,
Fender, and Marshall as well as more recent models such as Hartke, SWR, and Aguilar, a
whole world of bass tone comes complete on the B9.1ut.
Create the perfect bass tone for any situation
The B9.1ut s cabinet simulator emulates the low-frequency characteristics and sonic
behavior of vintage and modern bass speaker cabinets. This gives you the full dynamic
range of bass you get from large speaker cabinets even when playing through a
flat-response system such as headphones, studio monitors and even when using a small
practice amp. Turn the cabinet simulator off to return to a direct amp sound. For live or
studio performance, the B9.1ut gives you the right tone when and where you need it.
Onboard 6-band semi-parametric equalizer
A built-in 6-band semi-parametric equalizer provides tone flexibility and control on a
level that rivals gear found in studios around the world. Center frequencies can be
adjusted for each band, and the EQ curve can be set to peaking (narrow/wide), shelving,
low-pass, or high-pass. Dedicated knobs in the preamp section make it easy adjust the
boost or cut amount for each band.

amp model and effect with true clarity.
112 effects specially tuned for bass
The B9.1ut offers a versatile collection of 112 effect types arranged in 10 modules.
They are optimized for the dynamic and wide-range signal created by the modern
bass. The effect selection includes limiter/compressor for controlling peak levels and
ensuring uniformity, auto wah and resonance filter, octaver to produce ultra low
notes, defret to simulate a fretless bass, detune for a chorus effect and other
eminently usable choices. There are high-quality studio type effects such as delay
with hold function up to 5000 milliseconds, vintage tape echo, stereo chorus with
exceptional sonic clarity, flanger, phaser, pitch shifter and more. The module insert
position can be specified for the preamp section and wah/filter effects, to
accommodate even more advanced creativity.
Versatile bass synthesizer for additional flexibility
With its full bass synthesizer onboard, the B9.1ut provides modern, fully editable
synth sounds. Its mono synthesizer offers a choice of three waveform settings:
sawtooth, square and PWM. The 4-voice synthesizer creates rich and deep harmonic
voicings. You can also use the foot switches to play the pedal synthesizer. Two types
of filtering with excellent tracking are also available.
80 artist preset patches for stage and studio
In addition to its vintage amp and stomp box models, the B9.1ut comes
preprogrammed with artist-created bass sound settings from major genres such as
Rock, Jazz, and Funk. Doug Wimbish (Living Color), JD DeServio (Black Label Society)
and Eric Struthers (Aaron Neville) have each provided customized preset patches. And
you can save your own original patches with the enough storage capacity for another
80 patches.
Built-in auto-chromatic tuner also supports multi-string bass
The auto-chromatic tuner can be called up instantly. Bright LED indicators make the
note readout easy to see on a dark stage. Its calibration range is 435 to 445 Hz, and
quiet tuning is also enabled, for enhanced, onstage flexibility.
Zoom Noise Reduction(ZNR)Onboard
The built-in ZNR circuit developed by Zoom provides optimized performance for bass.
While minimizing any alteration of the original sound, ZNR removes unwanted noise.
Even the tails of long sustain notes come out beautifully, with natural release that is
ultra-quiet.
Low noise: 120dB S/N ratio and −100dB noise floor
Specifications such as a signal-to-noise ratio of 120dB and noise floor of −100dB
demonstrate a level of performance that is unsurpassed. Background noise is a thing of
the past, leaving you free to produce only superbly transparent bass performances.
Sturdy metal chassis and tough enclosure
The solid metal chassis ensures that the unit can stand up to the rigors of use on stage.
On the road or in the studio, the B9.1ut will not let you down. The sleek rounded shape
of the sturdy enclosure and its chrome-plated switches and knobs are as elegant as they
are durable, proving there is no sacrificing beauty for brawn.
DI Functionality with Stereo XLR Connectors
The B9.1ut has a built-in set of stereo XLR outputs
that lets you establish a balanced signal path for
clean sound. Go directly to a mixing console or PA
system without additional gear. A convenient
pre/post switch makes it possible to use the effects
from the main outputs without passing through
the A/D converter when using the XLR outputs.
USB audio interface
The USB port on the B9.1ut provides audio
interface capability for recording to digital audio
software. To utilize the sounds of the B9.1ut in a
computer-based recording environment, simply
connect the unit via USB to your computer. The
B9.1ut comes bundled with Cubase LE 4 so you
can start creating music right away. And because
playback from the software application can be
monitored on the B9.1ut itself, you can record
and monitor with no latency.
(Supported OS:Windows®/Mac)
AUX IN jacks accommodate external sources
External sources such as a CD or MP3 player can be connected to the AUX input for use
as backing in a jam session. Or use the connectors as a stereo line input for the USB
audio interface.
External send/return loop connectors
A compact or rackmount effect or other device can be connected in an external loop
and used as part of a patch. Send/return levels as well as on/off status are stored as part
of the patch. With the B9.1ut, you ll find new ways to use your favorite effects and
enhance your creativity in many ways.
MIDI Interface Onboard
The ability to exchange MIDI messages with other
devices opens up a wealth of performance and
data management possibilities. Switch patches in
conjunction with a MIDI enabled preamp, or use
the unit as a real-time controller for external MIDI
equipment. Connecting the B9.1ut via its MIDI
interface to a computer allows the use of
dedicated editor/librarian software* to edit and
store patch data.
