Features
Terms Used in This Manual
Thank you for selecting the ZOOM G7.1ut (simply called the "G7.1ut" in this manual). The G7.1ut is a
sophisticated Multi Effect Processor with the following features.
● Latest technology for top performance
Excellent sound quality is assured by signal processing featuring 96 kHz/24 bit sampling and internal
32-bit processing. Frequency response remains flat to 40 kHz, and input converted noise is an amazing
-120 dB or better. The built-in USB port serves for direct connection to a computer. You can use the
G7.1ut as audio interface for the computer, allowing direct recording with the supplied DAW software.
● Versatile array of 92 effects
Out of a versatile palette of 92 effects, up to nine (including ZNR) can be used simultaneously. Recreate
the sound of famous amps and compact effects, use the 6-band guitar equalizer, or select from many
other great effects. The G7.1ut easily surpasses the usual feature complement in this class.
● Ready-to-go patches
Effect module combinations and settings can be stored and recalled as patches. The G7.1ut offers 80
preset patches that are ready to use right out of the box, plus 80 user patches which can be freely
rewritten, giving you a total of 160 choices. The muting interval when switching patches has been
reduced to less than 7 milliseconds, which makes for virtually seamless patch changes.
● Great for stage work or direct recording
The pre-amp section features two channels, and each distortion type has two dedicated algorithms, one
for live playing and one for direct recording. The CABINET effect simulates amp and mic recording
characteristics, and the algorithm is automatically switched according to the CABINET on/off setting.
An amp select feature matches the sound to the amp you are using. Connecting the G7.1ut to the power
amplifier input of the guitar amp is no problem: simply set the -10 dBm/+4 dBm switch to the +4 dBm
position.
● Built-in auto-chromatic tuner supports special tuning requirements
In addition to the standard auto-chromatic tuner, various other tuning methods are possible. The tuner is
designed to allow easy use on stage.
● Expression pedal supplied as standard
Adjust effect tone or volume in real time with the expression pedal that is built right into the unit. The
possibilities for creative play are endless. The CONTROL IN jack on the rear panel lets you connect an
external pedal (FP01/FP02) and use it as a dedicated volume pedal.
● Tube powered energizer
The tube-based Energizer shapes the analog output signal to produce that characteristic warm and
dynamic sound that is the hallmark of a tube amplifier.
● Programmable function switch
The user-programmable function switch further enhances flexibility and lets you optimize the unit for
any application. Use it to switch pre-amp channels, set the delay time, turn hold delay on and off, or for
various other tasks.
This section explains some important terms that are used throughout the G7.1ut documentation.
■ Effect module
As shown in the illustration below, the G7.1ut can be
thought of as a combination of several single effects.
Each of these is referred to as an effect module. In
addition to modules such as the compressor effect
module (COMP), amp simulator/distortion effect
module (PRE-AMP), and modulation effect module
(MOD/EFX2), the G7.1ut also provides a module for
ZNR (ZOOM Noise Reduction). Parameters such as
effect intensity can be adjusted for each module
individually, and modules can be switched on and off
as desired. The module series ZNR, PRE-AMP, EQ,
and CABINET operates as a virtual preamplifier
which is controlled with the knobs and keys on the
pre-amp section of the panel.
are read-only, and user groups (U, u) which can be
modified. Since each group comprises 40 patches,
groups A, b, U, and u offer a total of 160 patches.
In the G7.1ut, patches are called up four at a time
and selected with the foot switches. These four
patches are together referred to as a bank. There
are ten banks in a group, numbered 0 through 9.

■ Effect type
Most effect modules comprise several different
effects which are referred to as effect types. For
example, the modulation effect module (MOD/
EFX2) comprises chorus, flanger, pitch shifter,
delay, and other effect types. Only one of these can
be selected at any time.
■ Modes
The G7.1ut has five different operation modes, as
listed below.
■ Effect parameter
All effect modules have aspects that can be
controlled. These are called effect parameters,
adjusted with the parameter knobs 1 – 4 on the panel.
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.
● Manual mode
In this mode, you play your instrument while
using the foot switches to turn modules on and off.
● Play mode
In this mode, patches can be selected and played.
This is the default mode of the G7.1ut that is
always active when power is turned on.
● Edit mode
In this mode, the effect parameters of a patch can
be edited (changed).
■ Patch
In the G7.1ut, effect module combinations are stored
and called up in units referred to as patches. A patch
comprises information about the on/off status of each
effect module, about the effect type used in each
module, and about effect parameter settings.
Expression pedal settings and tempo settings are also
stored for each patch individually.
● Store mode
This mode serves for storing edited patches. It also
allows changing the store positions of patches.
● Bypass/mute mode
When the G7.1ut is in the bypass condition, effect
processing is temporarily turned off and only the
original sound is heard. In the mute mode, all
sound is turned off. The built-in tuner can be used
in either condition.
■ Bank and group
Patches are organized in preset groups (A, b) which

knob clockwise gradually increases the tube
circuit gain, resulting in warmer, more solid
crunch or drive sound. Normally, you should
set the control to a position where distortion is
not too audible, but you can set it higher when
you purposely want to emphasize the tube
distortion.
● [BOOST] control
Using the Energizer
The G7.1ut incorporates an Energizer function
that processes the analog output signal using a
tube circuit.
This feature is suitable for making the guitar stand
out in an ensemble setting, or for adding that
characteristic tube distortion sound.
HINT
Parameter value Graphic representation of
boost/cut setting in each band
• The Energizer is active in all modes.
• The Energizer settings are not stored as part of
the patch.
This control boosts specific frequency bands to
make the sound more pronounced. When the
knob is turned fully counterclockwise, the
effect is off. Turning the knob clockwise
gradually boosts the low frequencies and the
area around 2 kHz. Especially when using a
small guitar amp or an audio system with flat
response, this can be helpful to produce more
dynamic sound.
The [BOOST] control is useful in such
situations, and for bringing the sound of the
guitar more to the foreground when playing in
a band.

As shown in the "Patch configuration" illustration
below, the G7.1ut can be thought of as a series of
several single effects (effect modules). A
combination of these modules and the settings for
each module are stored as a patch.
The basic steps that are normally taken in edit
mode are explained here. For details on effect
types and parameters for each module, see the
section "Effect Types and Parameters" on page 54
– 67.
Almost all modules comprise several different
effects (called effect types), one of which is
selected at any given time. For example, the
MOD/EFX2 module allows selection of either
CHORUS, PITCH SHIFTER, DELAY, etc.
1.
The elements that determine the sound of a patch
are called effect parameters. Each effect type has
its own parameters that can be controlled with
knobs on the panel. Even within the same module,
when the effect type is different, the effect
parameters that can be controlled will also be
different.
2.
Select the patch to edit.
The patch can be from a preset group (A/b) or
user group (U/u). However, if you have edited a
patch from a preset group, it can only be stored in
a user group (→ p. 27).
In play mode or manual mode, press

Using the Expression Pedal
This section explains how to use the built-in and an external expression pedal.
About the built-in
expression pedal
The G7.1ut has an integrated expression pedal
that can be used to control specific effect
parameters in real time.
The pedal has four control targets (PDL1 –
PDL4), which makes it possible to adjust up to
four parameters simultaneously. A setting
example is shown below, to give you an idea of
how the pedal can be used.

This section describes the various MIDI functions of the G7.1ut.
What you can do with MIDI
Selecting the MIDI channel
The G7.1ut lets you use MIDI in various ways, as
described below.
To enable correct sending and receiving of
program change, control change and other MIDI
messages, the MIDI channel (1 – 16) setting of
the G7.1ut and the other MIDI device must be
matched. To set the MIDI channel of the G7.1ut,
proceed as follows.
● Send and receive patch switching
information via MIDI
When you switch patches at the G7.1ut, the MIDI
OUT connector carries the corresponding MIDI
messages (program change, or bank select +
program change). Similarly, when a valid MIDI
message is received at the MIDI IN connector, the
G7.1ut will perform the corresponding patch
switch action.
This makes it possible to have patches at the
G7.1ut switched automatically under control of a
MIDI sequencer, or link operation of the G7.1ut
to patch switching at other MIDI enabled devices.
operation information via MIDI
When you operate specific keys and foot switches
of the G7.1ut, or operate the built-in or an
external expression pedal, the MIDI OUT
connector carries the corresponding MIDI
messages (control change). Similarly, when a
valid MIDI message is received at the MIDI IN
connector, the G7.1ut will vary the corresponding
parameter.
This makes it possible to use the G7.1ut as a realtime controller for other MIDI enabled devices, or
alter effect parameters and module on/off status
under control of a MIDI sequencer, synthesizer,
or other MIDI enabled device.

Sending and receiving
pedal/switch/key operation
information via MIDI
(control change)
The G7.1ut allows sending and receiving control
change messages via MIDI. These messages
govern actions such as operating the built-in or an
external expression pedal and switching modules
or bypass/mute on and off with keys and foot
switches. Each action can be assigned its own
control change number (CC#).

Troubleshooting
■ No sound or very low volume
• Make sure that the POWER switch is on.
• Try adjusting the LEVEL knob.
• Make sure that the INPUT jack and the
guitar, and the OUTPUT L/MONO (or
OUTPUT R) jack and the guitar amp are
connected properly.
• Make sure that the shielded cable is not
defective.
• Try adjusting the patch level (→ p. 16).
• Make sure that the G7.1ut is not in mute
mode (→ p. 20).
• For some patches, the volume can be
adjusted with the expression pedal. Make
sure that a suitable volume setting has been
selected with the pedal.
■ Sound is distorted
• Try lowering the Gain and Level parameters
of the PRE-AMP module.
• Try lowering the setting of the [TUBE]
control and [BOOST] control.
■ Foot switches do not operate properly
• Check the setting of the function foot switch
(→ p. 34).
Specifications
• Move around the room to check for RF noise
in relation to the pick ups, etc.
• Try lowering the Gain and Level parameters
of the PRE-AMP module.
• Check the settings of the built-in expression
pedal (→ p. 30).
Depending on the parameter assigned to the
expression pedal, a pedal action causing
drastic parameter change may result in noise.

G7.1ut Modeling Description
Fender Twin Reverb '65
EFFECT TYPE : FD Clean
In the later half of 1963, a reverb unit was added to the “Twin” amp, which was the birth of
the “Twin Reverb” model. In 1965, Fender company was sold to CBS because of Leo
Fender’s health problem. The program on this Zoom G series is modeled after the pre-CBS
“Twin Reverb” from 1965 aka “Black Panel”. This amp has four 7025 (12AX7), a 12AX7
and two 12AT7 pre-tubes, four 6L6GC power-tubes and silicon diodes for the rectifier circuit.
The diode rectifier is believed to give a tighter sound to the amplifier than the tube rectifier
does, which should be the key to the characteristic glittering sound of this “Twin Reverb”.
This guitar amplifier has two 12” loudspeakers by Jensen and pus out 80w power. On the
program in this G series, you can have the sound with the “Bright” switch on by tweaking
the “Harmonics” parameter in the “6 band EQ” section. When you turn the reverb effect
on, you will get that “Twin Reverb” sound you have been longing for.
35 AMP/STOMP BOX MODELS
Reference for drive effect types and its original models.
Roland JAZZ CHORUS
EFFECT TYPE : JC Clean
Simply put, the Roland “JC-120” is the most familiar guitar amplifier among both
professionals and amateurs. Released in 1975 from Roland, this amp became known as
“portable”, “loud” and “almost trouble-free” (which are the very characteristics Japanese
products are known for!). You are pretty sure to find one in any live houses or studios all
over the world. The key to that sound of “JC-120” is its unique chorus effect: the slightly
delayed vibrato sound comes from one of two 12” loudspeakers and the dry sound from
another and both sounds are combined in the air, which creates that distinctive spacey
mood. This effect became very popular which is why Roland decided to release the chorus
circuit independently as the “CE-1” pedal. Incidentally, the chorus effect on the G series is
modeled after its follower “CE-2”. Another unique feature of JC-120 is its “Bright” switch.
This function is not included in this modeling program but you can approximate the effect of
this switch by tweaking the “Harmonics” parameter in the “6 band EQ” section.
Fender Tweed Deluxe '53
EFFECT TYPE : US Blues
The very first Fender amplifier was developed by Leo Fender and his trusty partner, the
engineer Doc Kaufman in 1945-46. Actually, the earliest models were not made under the
“Fender” brand but the “K&F Manufacturing Corporation” named after the Initials of the
two. The first amplifier using the “Fender” brand was the “Model 26” in 1947. In 1949,
the entry models called “Champion 400/600” series followed. The so-called “Tweed Amps”
covered literally with tweeds all over were developed during the 1950s and the 1960s. In
these years, the company put out various tweed models like the “Bassman” or the
“Bandmaster”. The program of this G series is modeled after, among others, the most
representative “Tweed Deluxe” aka the “Wide Panel” from 1953. This amplifier has a
12AY7 and a 12AX7 pre-tubes, two 6V6GT power-tubes, a 5Y3GT rectifier tube and a 12”
Jensen loudspeaker and its output power is 10w. Recently the original amplifier is priced
quite highly and is very difficult to find in good condition. This amp has two inputs but one
is the input for a microphone. It has just one tone knob for treble control. Therefore, it is
advisable to use this program on the G series with a flat tone setting except for the treble
parameter so that you can enjoy the characteristic sound in the lower registers and the
unique sound in the higher registers of the original Fender amp.
MESA/BOOGIE Dual Rectifier
EFFECT TYPE : BG Drive
The “Rectifier” model has the improved simul-power circuitry (see the “Mark III” section)
and the increased gain in the preamp section. This amp puts out 100w power and has five
12AX7 tubes for the pre-amp and four 6L6GC tubes for the power-amp. As opposed to the
“Mark” series, the Rectifier has its tone control circuit after the volume circuit for better
effect on the sound.
Since this amp had been introduced, the brand image of
MESA/BOOGIE has changed from being the premiere amp manufacturer for fusion music to
that for heavy metal music.
The most prominent feature of this amp is its rectifier circuitry after which it was named.
The “Dual Rectifier” employs, as its name suggests, two different rectifier circuits: one uses
silicon diodes and another uses tubes. When the diodes are selected, the amp gives you
tight and highly powerful sound. When the tube rectifier circuit is selected, you will get a
warmer sound. This program is modeled after the combination of a four-12” BOOGIE
cabinet and the Dual Rectifier head using the vintage channel and the silicon-diode rectifier
circuit.
HIWATT Custom 100
EFFECT TYPE : HW Clean
The Custom 100 was the flagship amp from Hiwatt, a British manufacturer that ranks with
Marshall among the British legends. Vintage Hiwatt amplifiers made before the mid-1980s
use high-grade military-spec parts and hand-soldered point-to-point wiring. This is the
reason why production was limited to about 40 units per month. Because of their solid
construction, these amplifiers have been likened to tanks. Their sound, in a word, is the
epitome of clean. The pre-stage tubes are ECC83, while the power tubes are the same EL34
as used by Marshall. Unlike the glittering clean sound of a Fender amp, the clean sound of a
Hiwatt is darker, having that characteristic British tone. Especially in the "normal" channel,
turning up the volume to maximum will simply increase the sound pressure, without
breakup or loss of detail. In the high-gain "brilliant" channel, slight distortion is possible by
connecting a guitar with a high-output pickup such as a Les Paul. But the sound always
remains detailed and transparent, allowing the listener to clearly pick out the individual
notes that make up a chord. The "normal" and "brilliant" channel inputs can be linked with
a short shielded cable, for even higher sound pressure output.
This effect type simulates the linked sound as described above, much favored by Pete
Townshend of The Who and Pink Floyd's David Gilmour.
Fender BASSMAN
EFFECT TYPE : TweedBass
Among the many famous Fender amps, the Bassman has earned a special place. When Jim
Marshall developed his original amplifier, he is said to have used the Bassman circuit as a
reference. When it first came out in 1951, the Bassman had an output of 26 watts and used
a single Jensen 15-inch speaker. After various modifications, it reemerged in 1959 with a
50-watt output and four Jensen 10-inch drivers. The simulation of the Zoom G series is
modeled on the "bright" channel of the '59 Bassman. Introduced at the 1951 NAMM show
along with the Precision Bass, this amp was originally intended for use with bass guitars.
But its reedy distortion made it a favorite with some of the early blues giants, and later with
many rock guitarists. Of course, the amp continues to used by musicians to this day.
PEAVEY 5150 STACK
EFFECT TYPE : PV Drive
The “5150” and the “5150 MkII” were very famous guitar amplifiers originally developed as
the signature models for Eddie Van Halen. Unfortunately, he doesn’t use it anymore
because of the expiration of the endorsement contract. The program on this G series is
modeled after the first version of the “5150”. This amplifier has two (Rhythm and Lead)
channels and puts out 120w power using five 12AX7 pre-tubes and four 6L6GC powertubes. The rectifier circuit employs silicon diodes. The uniqueness of the sound of this
amplifier is characterized by its sharp attack, deep and smooth tone, fine distortion and fat
and clinging low registers. The program is modeled after the combination of the Lead
channel of the 5150 head and a “5150SL”, a four-12” cabinet. Just crank up the gain and
play one of Van Halen’s hit “Top Of The World”!
VOX AC30TBX (Clean)
EFFECT TYPE : VX Clean
The long history of the VOX company harks back to the foundation of “Jennings Musical
Instruments” (JMI) in 1958. Originally, this company made amplifiers with 10-15w output
power but the musical trend required more powerful amplification, which resulted in the
birth of the revered “AC30” guitar amp. The very original AC30 had two Celestion 12”
loudspeakers using alnico magnets, EF86 pre-tubes, EL84 power-tubes and a GZ34 rectifier
tube. The Shadows and the Beatles used this model and their influence helped this amp
become popular among many guitarists. Later, as the musical trend required amplifiers with
even more gain, the company developed an add-on device called “Top Boost Unit”. The
“AC30TBX”, which this program in our G series is modeled after, is the later version of the
AC30 with an integrated “Top Boost Unit”. After the JMI had sold the VOX brand, the sales
of the amplifier regrettably began to decline. However, the KORG Inc. acquired the VOX
name recently and rejuvenated the brand by starting to manufacture truthful reissue models.
In this G series, the program is modeled after the sound using the Hi input of the normal
channel that will give you that clean guitar sound of the Beatles and the Shadows, which
are the best examples of the distortion-free sound of the class-A operated amplifiers.
Marshall JCM800
EFFECT TYPE : MS Crunch
Marshall has continued to produce great amplifiers for up-to-date musical trends in
cooperation with the musicians. This brand started with its “JTM- 45 (stands for Jim&Terry
Marshall)” in 1962 and now its products are indispensable items in the modern Rock scene.
Marshall seems to have been experimenting with different circuit designs of amplifiers but
1981 was the most prolific year for the brand because it released many new models like the
“1959” and “1987” with four inputs, “2203” and “2204” with master volumes. In 1983,
Marshall added the “2210” and “2205” with two (Normal and Boost) channels as well as
effect send/return connectors to its lineup. These models also carried the collective
designation “JCM (stands for Jim&Charles Marshall) 800”. They had three ECC83 pre-tubes
and four EL34 power-tubes. The tone control circuit was placed after the pre-amp section
and this design seems to have become the standard for the modern Marshall amplifiers.
For the modeling on this G series, we selected the “2203” with a master volume and it is
quite easy to get the distortion. By today’s standards, the amplifier’s distortion is rather
moderate, but the sound is very fat, the low-end is quite tight and, above all, the sound cuts
through very well. When higher gain is required, this amplifier is often combined with
overdrive or booster pedals. For the modeling, we used the head with a “1960A” cabinet
that has four 12” loudspeakers and works very well with the “2203”.
MESA/BOOGIE Mark III
EFFECT TYPE : BG Crunch
The origin of the MESA/BOOGIE amplifier was the modified Fender Princeton. Randall
Smith, an amp tech in San Francisco, souped up those small guitar amps to put out 100w
power and sold them. The first model was called “Mark I”. Carlos Santana tried one and
said, “Shit man, that little thing really Boogies! “ -which gave the amplifier the brand name
“BOOGIE.”
The second model “Mark II” had lead and rhythm channels and a 4-band equalizer to give
wider variety to the guitar tone. The special feature of this model was an accomplished
simul- power circuitry (the operation could be switched between class A and class AB). The
power amplifier section had six power tubes. When the class A operation is selected, two
EL34 power tubes are activated and the amp puts out a really smooth sound. When the
class AB operation is selected, these two EL34s and other four 6L6GC power tubes are all
activated and the amplifier puts out its full potential power.
Until the model Mark II, MESA/BOOGIE amps were quite expensive, hand-made amplifiers,
but the next model “Mark III” was more affordable. It has one 10” loudspeaker and 60w
output power but retains all of the classic BOOGIE features; simul-power circuitry, the
graphic EQ, and three (Rhythm1, Rhythm2 and Lead) separate channels. With this Zoom G
series, you can select the modeling of the combo type of this “Mark III.”
Hughes & Kettner TriAmp MK2
EFFECT TYPE : HK Drive
Using a total of 13 tubes in the pre and power amp stages, and A and B settings in each of
the three channels, this is a monster of an amplifier offering the equivalent of six channels
to play with. AMP1 is a Fender type clean channel with bright and uncluttered sound. AMP2
is a classic British drive channel which covers the overdrive range from crunch to distortion.
Both of these channels have fairly high gain, but they are surpassed by AMP3, which can be
seen as the true highlight of this model. While allowing deep distortion, the sound has a
solid core and remains wonderfully detailed. The simulation of the Zoom G series recreates
the A channel of AMP3 which is distinguished by its bright character.
VOX AC30TBX (Crunch)
EFFECT TYPE : VX Crunch
This legendary British amp is famous for its transparent clean tone, stemming from the Class
A circuit designed by Dick Denney. But it also can produce impressively smooth drive sound
with raised volume such as heard on the "Taxman" recording by the Beatles. The simulation
is modeled on the "brilliant" channel of the AC30TBX to recreate the drive sound. Rory
Gallagher and Brian May of Queen liked to boost the sound of this amp with a Rangemaster
TrebleBooster made by Dallas-Arbiter, resulting in even more dramatic impact. With the
Zoom G series, a similar result can be achieved by using the boost effect type of the
WAH/EFX module.
Marshall 1962 Bluesbreaker
EFFECT TYPE : UK Blues
Since it was used by Eric Clapton when recording the album "John Mayall and the Blues
Breakers with Eric Clapton" (commonly known as the "Beano" album), this amp has
acquired the moniker "Bluesbreaker". Up to then, guitar amps aimed for a clean sound with
minimal distortion, but the fat and sweet tone of this amp driven by Eric Clapton's Les Paul
fascinated guitarists the world over. They liked it so much that it has become the defining
sound of the rock guitar. While different from the distortion produced by modern high-gain
amps, the long sustain and distortion following each picking nuance is ideal for playing the
blues.
The creamy sound of this amplifier with its four ECC83 pre-stage tubes, two 5881 power
tubes, and a GZ34 tube in the rectifier circuit is perfectly captured by the simulation.
Marshall JCM2000
EFFECT TYPE : MS Drive
“JCM2000” is based on the reputed “Plexi” amp (aka Old Marshall) whose rich overtones
and powerful sound were legendary. It has very flexible sound and can produce the
traditional Marshall sound, modern heavy metal sound or sounds suitable for any musical
genre. It has the modern Marshall’s standard circuit with four ECC83 pre-tubes and four
EL34 power-tubes. It is an all-tube amplifier that can produce clean or heavily distorted
sound and you can use it in all kinds of music. The sound is rather grainy but the response
is fast and the guitar sound cuts through very well. “JCM2000” series has two different
models: the TSL and the DSL. The program on the G series is modeled after the simply
designed “DSL-100”. As with the modeling of the “JCM800”, we combined the head with
a “1960A” cabinet and used the Lead channel that has more distortion.
Diezel Herbert
EFFECT TYPE : DZ Drive
This modern three-channel amp features great tonal versatility, ranging from clean tone to
distortion. Channel 1 is an ultra clean sound, but the amplifier is more famous for the
extremely dry and gritty distortion produced by channel 3. This kind of drive sound that
pierces the heart and rattles the ears is hard to get with any other amp. A DEEP control
allows further boosting the low frequencies, a feature that is much in evidence in the
modern heavy sound of bands such as Metallica or Limp Bizkit. The Zoom G series lets you
produce a similar boost using the BASS EQ control.

G7.1ut Modeling Description
BOSS OD-1
EFFECT TYPE : OverDrive
The “OD-1” released by BOSS in 1977 was originally developed for the simulation of the
natural overdrive sound of tube amplifiers, but this stomp box turned out to be popular as
the booster unit to connect to the input of the real tube amplifier to get tighter and more
punchy sound with the increased gain. The “OD-1” employs the asymmetrical “clipper”
section in its circuit design that uses three diodes to create the overdrive sound that is mild
and rich in nuances. The pedal had been in production from 1977 to 1985, but now it is
unexpectedly difficult to even find a used one. And if you could locate one, it would be
astonishingly expensive. There have been many stomp boxes known as overdrive units. The
most famous one is probably the “Tube Screamer” but we chose this very original overdrive
pedal “OD-1”. If you are lucky enough to use the real “OD-1”, we invite you to try blind
test to turn off all of the effect module except the “OD-1” on the Zoom G series and
compare the sound of the modeling and that of the real one. We think that you will not
hear any difference.
PROCO RAT
EFFECT TYPE : RAT
This is one of the most widely used pedals. It has only three knobs (Distortion, Filter,
Volume), but each knob has a wide adjustment range, allowing various types of sound. With
distortion fully turned up, the fat, up-front sound is close to a Fuzz pedal. At the twelve
o'clock position, the crunch sound brings out those fine picking nuances, allowing the player
to tweak the sound by varying the playing style. As opposed to a regular tone control, the
filter knob cuts the treble when turned clockwise. This is the secret behind the typical "RAT"
sound. In the Zoom G series, this effect is simulated by the TONE parameter, but operation
is reversed (treble is cut when turned counterclockwise).
Dallas-Arbiter FUZZ FACE
EFFECT TYPE : FuzzFace
“FUZZ FACE” was originally released from the Dallas-Arbiter company in 1966 encased in a
uniquely designed housing that literally looked like a face. It is also famous as legendary
guitarist Jimi Hendrix’s favorite gear. He combined this “FUZZ FACE” with his Marshall
amps because it was hard to get distorted sound from them at that time, and created avantgarde tones. The heavy and fat low end and the fuzz sound with long sustain are the
characteristics of this effective device. The earliest model used two PNP germanium
transistors and was very different in sound from the later models using silicon transistors.
The theory of creating distorted sound is simple. Have you tried to connect the guitar to a
microphone input on your radio cassette recorder to emulate that sound? You cannot go
too wrong if you think that the circuitry of this device is similar to that. The program on this
G series is modeled after this earliest version most satisfactorily.
Marshall Stack + SD-1
EFFECT TYPE : SD+M_Stk
Ever since the dawn of rock, Marshall has been recognized as the best brand of amp for this
genre. With the JCM800 series that appeared in the eighties, Marshall again pulled ahead of
the pack. Among the various models of the series, the most successful must be the 100-watt
2203 featuring a master volume control. With its crisp and solid sound, it makes the guitar
stand out gloriously in a band even over the vocals, something that hard rock guitarists
really appreciate. However, for dashing leads with heavy riffs or right-hand playing, gain
with this amp alone was still not enough. Driving the Marshall JCM800 with an overdrive
pedal was the answer. This effect type recreates the sound of those glitzy hairspray bands
from the eighties, using the Boss SD-1 as overdrive pedal.
Z OD
EFFECT TYPE : Z OD
When playing an electric guitar, distortion is of course one of the essential style elements,
but different guitarists will have different preferences. What this effect type does is
exemplify the preferences of the Zoom G series developers. The smooth overdrive sound
should lend itself to many playing styles, allowing finely nuanced changes. Warmth is better
than with any stomp box, and loud volume will not cause the sound to become unpleasant.
Just the right amount of sustain ensures that attack dynamics remain vibrant. Tracking your
fingerwork with uncanny accuracy, the effect reproduces even the final tinge of the pick
when it leaves the string. We believe that many guitarists will find here what they were
looking for.
Ibanez TS808
EFFECT TYPE : TS808
This is modeled on the early Tube Screamer introduced by Ibanez in 1979 for the non-US
market. In Japan, it was sold under the Maxon name as the OD808. As the moniker implies,
when using the pedal on its own, it produces natural distortion such as when driving a tube
amp hard. But it often was used simply as a booster, with gain at 0 and volume at 10, to
drive a full-up amp even further. Normally, this would not change the amplifier's sound, but
a slight peak in the midrange results in a softer tone.
This pedal is also famous for being used by blues guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan who
tragically perished in a helicopter crash.
BOSS DS-1
EFFECT TYPE : DS-1
This orange-colored pedal can be called the standard of distortion sound. Among the many
distortion pedals from Boss, it is a real long-seller, along with the SD-1. In Japan, sales of
the pedal ceased at one point (although production for the U.S. market continued), but as of
2005, the product is available again. This is the only Boss pedal to be reintroduced to the
market in this fashion. The sound is trebly and very "distortion-like", but it can very well
hold its own in a band. Favored by Joe Satriani and Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.
Electro-Harmonix BIG MUFF
EFFECT TYPE : BigMuff
There are several versions of this pedal. The Zoom G series simulation is based on the socalled "Ram's Head" from the early seventies, characterized by very long sustain and rich
distortion tapestry. Major names from the 70's associated with this sound are Carlos
Santana and Robert Fripp of King Crimson. From the late eighties into the nineties, the
grunge movement took over, with Nirvana's Cobain and J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. using the
pedal to do their thing. Compared to an ordinary fuzz pedal, the BIG MUFF offers rich
midrange and detailed distortion that maintain presence also when playing chords. The
result is a wholly unique sound somewhere between distortion and fuzz.
Marshall Stack + FUZZ FACE
EFFECT TYPE : FZ+M_Stk
At the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, a guitar was smashed and burnt on stage, helped
along by Zippo lighter fluid. Just before this poor Stratocaster gave up the ghost, its
psychedelic colors disintegrating, it had been played with furious intensity and produced a
sound unlike anything heard before. And that is also what this effect type, combining a
Marshall SuperLead 100 with the FUZZ FACE from Dallas-Arbiter, attempts to do. It
produces a wildly deformed sound that is not destined for delicate chords but for audacious
dramatic leads with heavy sustain. Such as those of the legendary Jimi Hendrix.
Extreme Distortion
EFFECT TYPE : ExtremeDS
This distortion program is developed especially for the G series. We deliberately made use
of the characteristics of digital devices and even emphasized the edge of the digital sound to
get the distortion to the maximum. The “TM-01” (Tri Metal) was the pedal that had the
deepest distortion sound among the stomp boxes from ZOOM but was discontinued. It had
as much as three diode-clipping stages and had very high gain. The “Extreme Distortion” is
programmed to get the gain even higher. It raises the signal level to the maximum at the
input stage and gets the wild distortion sound at the clipping stage. In fact, you won’t
change the distortion rate even if you lower the volume on your guitar! Its distortion is that
deep. Contrary to the usual distortion effects whose sound gets thinner as you raise the
gain, this “Extreme Distortion” won’t lose the fatness and tightness of the sound.
KLON CENTAUR
EFFECT TYPE : Centaur
This pedal is well known for two things: its capability of producing pure distortion without
impairing the original sound, and its high price. Being four-and-a-half years in the making,
the Centaur distinguishes itself from other famous pedals such as the Ibanez TS808 or the
Boss OD-1. It is also often used as a booster, but whereas these vintage pedals add their
characteristics to the amp sound, the Centaur creates a tone as if it were driven by the amp.
MXR Distortion+
EFFECT TYPE : dist+
MXR, a company founded in the seventies by two high school students, is famous for stomp
boxes such as the Dynacomp and Phase 90. In the early days, their products were actually
built and painted in a garage and set out to dry in the garden. As the story goes, sometimes
small insects would get stuck on the surface, and the lot would be shipped out as is. The
pedals soon gained worldwide fame in the seventies, but eventually lost their market share
to "Made in Japan" products from Boss and others that provided high performance at lower
cost. MXR disappeared from the scene, but in the late eighties, Jim Dunlop bought the rights
and is now producing a number of re-issue models.
This pedal much beloved by Randy Rhoads who made the "distortion" moniker and sound
famous the world over. The hard-edged tone stays detailed also when playing fast solos or
riffs with the lower strings muted. The world of heavy metal and hard rock wouldn't be the
same without it.
BOSS MT-2
EFFECT TYPE : MetalZone
The “MT-2” (“METAL ZONE”) has the strongest distortion. Its unique distortion sound has
very fat mid to low range and it has a parametric EQ in addition to the Hi and Low EQs,
which is the key to the scooped metal sound. This stomp box is reputed for its flexibility in
sound because you can not only get that scooped metal sound by cutting the mid range and
boosting the high and low range but also the overdrive sound by reducing the gain and
boosting the mid range. This is one of the best-selling stomp boxes among many of the
popular line-ups of BOSS products. Once connected, the Strat or the Les Paul will have the
“MT-2” sound regardless of the types of guitar pickups. It was first introduced in 1991 and
is still in the BOSS’s catalog; a truly a long-seller!
Z Combo
EFFECT TYPE : Z Combo
The Bluesbreaker or Bassman are wonderful combo amps, but nowadays, their gain can
seem a little low. Sometimes you just want to combine the transparency and dynamics of
these combo amps with a more intense level of distortion and sustain. The Z Combo (great
name!) is the answer to your prayers. You get a midrange sound like adding up a Marshall
and a Fender and dividing them by two, plus distortion that equals notching up the volume
from 10 to 15 (or from 12 to 17 on the Bassman). While not intended for jazz or heavy
metal, the sound is great for a wide range of other blues and rock styles.
Digital Fuzz
EFFECT TYPE : DigiFuzz
Forty years ago, my fellow guitar player used to crank up his amp trying to distort his guitar
sound and make other guys of the band virtually deaf at the end of the rehearsal. When it
was difficult to get the distorted sound out of the amplifiers like in those days, some guys
made cuts in the cone loudspeakers to make the sound distorted, which was the origin of
the sound of fuzz effects. The fuzz pedals were developed to reproduce that distortion-like
sound. In other words, the trick of fuzz effect is to simulate the dirty distortion and that
“broken” feel. This “Digital Fuzz” has the very effect described above. Its drastic
distortion, relentless cut-offs and noises in the decay are the characteristics that one could
simply describe as “broken”. Its fat and tight sound can be seriously recommended for the
fuzz maniacs to try. This is literally the Digital Dirty Fuzz that is only possible in the digital
domain (are you brave enough to make cuts in your loudspeakers?).
Marshall Guv'nor
EFFECT TYPE : Guv'nor
The initial sales talk for this serious distortion pedal “Guv’nor” bearing the Marshall brand
was that you could get the distortion sound of the Marshall amps with this small stomp box.
Depending on which guitar amps you combine, you can actually get the Marshall amps
distortion. There are two different versions of the Guv’nor: the Britain-made ones from
1988 and the Korean-made ones from 1998. The program on this G series is modeled after
the original version from 1988. The Guv’nor’s characteristic feature is the frequency point
you can tweak using the “TREBLE” control. Even if you lower this parameter value, the
sound will get fat instead of getting dullish. As you raise the value, the sound will get
sweeter and clearer.
MATCHLESS HOT BOX
EFFECT TYPE : HotBox
The “HOT BOX” was released as a pedal preamp bearing the MATCHLESS brand. It uses
two 12AX7A tubes for the truthful reproduction of the sound of the “MATCHLESS” guitar
amplifiers. It has the compressed sound and the quick response, which are distinctive
characteristics of tube amps. Its sound is fat and cuts through very well, too. Even if you
crank up the gain to get a distorted sound, you will retain the nuances of the original guitar
sound. Although it is categorized as preamp, the ideal way to get the best possible sound is
to connect it, like usual stomp boxes, to the input of your guitar amp. Its design is also
attractive: the case is polished like a mirror and the “MATCHLESS” logo lights up when you
turn it on. This “Hot Box” is literally a magic box: you can get the signature sound of the
“MATCHLESS” amps regardless of the guitar amplifier you connect it to.
Fender Combo + TS9
EFFECT TYPE : TS+F_Cmb
Opinion may be divided, but it can be argued that the most powerful and fat guitar sound
ever was created by Stevie Ray Vaughan. He did this by putting extremely heavy-gauge
strings that would fit an acoustic guitar on his old and battered Stratocaster. Add to this the
full-up Fender amp and a small Ibanez pedal, and you are approaching magic territory. Just
like this effect type does. Connect a Stratocaster and bend the third string near the 14th fret.
Feel that smile appear on your face. If you want to express your feelings, give this one a go.
Z Stack
EFFECT TYPE : Z Stack
Which amplifier has the strongest distortion in the world? Is it the Rectifier, the Herbert, the
TriAmp? No, it is the Z Stack that you find right here. The distortion is so strong that simply
touching the fingerboard with your left hand (or right hand if you're left-handed) will
produce sound. (This makes right-hand playing a snap.) But amazingly, a 9th chord will
remain clearly identifiable as such, because the sound does not lose its core. The biggest
problem of this amplifier is that it does not exist--except in the Zoom G series, that is. Give it
a try if you are after really heavy sound.
Z Clean
EFFECT TYPE : Z Clean
This is a clean sound that makes the drive module virtually disappear. The bass is tight, and
a very slight treble emphasis creates vigor. Why choose this effect type, then? Try it when
creating patches for arpeggios and cutting. You should get smoother and more rounded
sound. If you want to produce clean guitar sound via a line input, excessive bass may make
it sound as if the pick got caught between the strings. This effect type should solve such
problems.

For optimum enjoyment
While using Cubase LE, other applications may slow down drastically
or the message "Cannot synchronize with USB audio interface" may
appear. If this happens frequently, consider taking the following steps
to optimize the operation conditions for Cubase LE.
(1) Shut down other applications besides Cubase LE.
In particular, check for resident software and utilities.
(2) Reduce plug-ins (effects, instruments) used by Cubase LE.
When there is a high number of plug-ins, the computer's
processing power may not be able to keep up. Reducing
the number of tracks for simultaneous playback can also be
helpful.
(3) Power the unit from an AC adapter
When a device designed to use USB power is powered via
the USB port, the current supply may sometimes fluctuate,
leading to problems. See if using an AC adapter improves
operation.
If applications still run very slowly or the computer itself does not
function properly, disconnect this unit from the computer and shut
down Cubase LE. Then reconnect the USB cable and start Cubase LE
again.
