The Zoom G5n: The finest collection of guitar effects offered in one package
January 21, 2015 — Zoom Corporation today unveiled the next-generation G5n Multi-Effects Processor for guitarists.
The feature-rich G5n provides all the power and versatility that a serious guitarist needs, with the wide selection of beautifully-crafted effects, faithfully-created amp/cabinet emulators, intuitive editing, and hands-on feel they desire. Its four independent editing displays and large overview display make editing easy and familiar, with four stompbox-style footswitches to instantly bring effects in and out—up to nine effects can be used simultaneously, chained together in any order. In addition, a built-in expression pedal enables real-time volume and tone control, and can also be used to alter effects parameters such as delay time or modulation speed.
The G5n comes with 78 high-quality onboard DSP effects and faithfully modeled amp/cabinet emulators. The pedal also comes with 100 custom-created patches from a diverse group of artists including Jeff Schroeder (Smashing Pumpkins), Kyle Bolden (Stevie Wonder), Chuck Loeb (Fourplay), Eric Struthers (Aaron Neville), Dan Spack (Volcano Choir), Craig Wedren (Shudder to Think), Wes Geer (hed P.E./Korn), and more. In addition, users can download additional sounds and exclusive artist-created effects-chains with the new Zoom Guitar Lab software (Mac/Windows).
The feature-laden G5n also provides a boost control, 68 rhythm patterns, and a looper with up to 80 seconds of recording time, as well as tap tempo synchronization and a chromatic tuner, each with its own dedicated footswitch. It utilizes a robust metal chassis design rugged enough for the road, and dual output jacks enable stereo as well as monophonic use. In addition to a USB port and dedicated headphone jack, an auxiliary input allows the connection of music players and other external line-level devices.
