IN COMP/EFX DRIVE
■ Effect module
Connecting cables and input and output
jacks
You should always turn off the power to the G1/G1X
and all other equipment before connecting or
disconnecting any cables. Also make sure to disconnect
all connection cables and the power cord before moving
the G1/G1X.
Never open the case of the G1/G1X or attempt to
modify the product in any way since this can result in
damage to the unit.
Volume
Caution
Do not use the G1/G1X at a loud volume for a long
time since this can cause hearing impairment.
Usage Precautions
EQ
ZNR
AMP
As shown in the illustration above, the G1/G1X can
be thought of as a combination of several single
effects. Each such effect is referred to as an effect
module. In addition to modules such as DRIVE and
MODULATION, the G1/G1X also provides a
module for noise reduction and amp simulation
(ZNR/AMP). Parameters such as effect intensity
can be adjusted for each module individually, and
modules can be switched on and off.
■ Effect type
Some effect modules have several different effects
which are referred to as effect types. For example,
the MODULATION module comprises chorus,
flanger, pitch shifter, and other effect types. Only
one of these can be selected at a time.
■ Effect parameter
All effect modules have various parameters that can
be adjusted. These are called effect parameters.
When thinking of an effect module as a compact
effect, the parameters change the tone and effect
intensity similar to the knobs on the device.
■ Patch
Electrical interference
For safety considerations, the G1/G1X has been designed to
provide maximum protection against the emission of
electromagnetic radiation from inside the device, and protection
from external interference. However, equipment that is very
susceptible to interference or that emits powerful
electromagnetic waves should not be placed near the G1/G1X,
as the possibility of interference cannot be ruled out entirely.
With any type of digital control device, the G1/G1X included,
electromagnetic interference can cause malfunctioning and can
corrupt or destroy data. Care should be taken to minimize the
risk of damage.
In the G1/G1X, effect module combinations are
stored and called up in units referred to as patches.
A patch comprises information about the on/off
To prevent the risk of fire, electric shock or
malfunction, avoid using your G1/G1X in environments
where it will be exposed to:
• Extreme temperatures
• Heat sources such as radiators or stoves
Please keep this manual in a convenient place for
future reference.

status of each effect module, about the effect type
used in each module, and about effect parameter
settings. The internal memory of the G1/G1X can
store up to 80 patches.
■ Bank and area
A group of ten patches is called a bank. The
memory of the G1/G1X comprises a total of eight
banks, labelled with letters A to d and numbers 0 to
3. Banks A – d are the user area which allows read/
write. 0 – 3 form the preset area of read-only
patches.

■ Mode
The internal status of the G1/G1X is referred to as
the operation mode. In "play mode" you can select
patches and use them for playing your instrument.
In "edit mode" you can modify the effects, and there
is also a "rhythm mode" in which you can make
settings for the rhythm function. The module

Using the Tuner
Using the Tuner
The G1/G1X incorporates an auto-chromatic tuner. To use the tuner function, the built-in effects must be
bypassed (temporarily turned off) or muted (original sound and effect sound turned off).
Adjusting the reference pitch of the tuner
If required, you can fine-adjust the reference pitch of the G1/G1X tuner.
Turn the [VALUE] knob.
When you turn the [VALUE] knob in the
bypass/mute condition, the current reference pitch
is shown for a time on the display. The default
setting is 40 (center A = 440 Hz).
Switch to bypass or mute

While the reference pitch is shown, turn
the [VALUE] knob to adjust the value in
the range from 35 - 45 (center A = 435 to
445 Hz).
Setting the G1/G1X to the mute state
In play mode or rhythm mode (→ p. 10),
press both [W]/[Q] foot switches
together and hold for at least 1 second.
NOTE
MT

The bypass or mute condition cannot be
activated when the unit is in edit mode.
Shortly after you release the [VALUE] knob, the
display indication will revert to the previous
condition.
Patch change at bypass/mute
When you press both [Q]/[W] foot switches together while
playing your instrument, the sound may change momentarily
just before the bypass/mute condition is activated. This is
because the G1/G1X switches to the next higher or lower
patch when one of the foot switches is pressed slightly
earlier. (When you cancel the bypass/mute condition, the
original patch number will be active again.)
This behavior is not a defect. It is due to the very high speed
at which the G1/G1X responds to patch switching. To
prevent the sound change caused by the above condition,
do not produce sound with your instrument until the
bypass/mute condition is fully established.
NOTE
Return to play mode
Press one of the [W]/[Q] foot switches.

Using a Foot Switch or Pedal
Changing the Way Patches Are Called Up
In normal operation, changing a patch in play mode of the G1/G1X will be active immediately. This
means that the sound changes straight away when you make the selection.
In some cases, such as when the new patch is at a memory location not adjacent to the current one, this
method may not be ideal, because the sound will change in various ways as you switch through the
patches. In such a case, you may want to change the patch selection method to "pre-select". In this mode,
you first select the patch to use next, and then perform an additional step to activate the patch.
To change G1/G1X operation to pre-select, perform the following steps.
1.
Turn power to the G1/G1X on while
holding down the [Q] foot switch.
The indication "PrE-SElEct" scrolls on the
display during startup.
2.
In play mode, use the [W]/[Q] foot
switches to specify the patch to use
next.
You can use the [BANK UP•TAP] key or a foot
switch (FS01) connected to the [CONTROL IN]
jack to switch only the bank (The G1X does not
support use of a foot switch.)
The new bank or patch number specified by the
above step flashes on the display. The sound
does not change yet.
3.
When you have specified the patch to
use, press both [W]/[Q] foot
switches together.
The patch change is accepted, the display
changes from flashing to permanently lit, and the
sound changes.

power off and then on again.
The patch selection method is automatically reset
to conventional operation.
Using a Foot Switch or Pedal
The G1 is equipped with a [CONTROL IN] jack that allows connection of an optional foot switch or
expression pedal.
This section explains how to use this capability.
Using the foot switch (FS01)
(G1 only)
Simply connect the optional foot switch (FS01)
to the [CONTROL IN] jack of the G1 and turn

Using the expression pedal
With the G1, an expression pedal (FP01/FP02)
can be connected to the [CONTROL IN] jack
and used as a volume pedal or for adjusting a
certain parameter of an effect type in real time.
With the G1X, the built-in expression pedal can
be used in the same way. The function of the
expression pedal can be selected and stored
individually for each patch.
1.
To use an expression pedal with the
G1, plug the FP01 or FP02 into the
[CONTROL IN] jack and turn on the
power.
2.
Select the patch in which to use the
expression pedal.
3.
Set the Module selector to a position
other than "PLAY" or "RHYTHM".
The G1/G1X goes into edit mode.
4.
While holding down the [RHYTHM]
key, use the [VALUE] knob to select
the module to control with the
expression pedal. Available settings
are shown below.
Display
• In the section "Effect Types and Parameters" (page
19 – 24), a pedal symbol indicates which effect
type/parameter is controlled by the pedal.
• When a module has been selected as control
target, but the effect type currently selected for
that module does not have a pedal symbol, the
expression pedal has no effect.
5.
Store the patch as required.
The expression pedal setting is stored for that
patch.
6.
Select this patch in play mode, and
operate the expression pedal.
The respective parameter changes when you
operate the pedal (pushing the pedal down has
the same effect as increasing the value of the
parameter).
In the bypass condition, the expression pedal
always functions as volume pedal, regardless of
the setting made in step 4.
HINT
• The expression pedal operates also in edit mode.
• With the G1X, you can also use the [PEDAL
ASSIGN] key on the top panel instead of the
