Description

Great guitarists know it’s all about nuance. With its built-in expression pedal, the Zoom G1XON allows you to add subtlety and refinement to your performance. Add in 100 great-sounding guitar effects and amp models—with the ability to use up to 5 of them simultaneously—plus 68 built-in rhythm accompaniment patterns and an onboard chromatic tuner and Looper, and take your guitar playing to a whole new level.

 

Amazing effects, amazing features, amazing sound

The G1Xon offers 100 guitar effects, including a variety of distortion, compression, modulation, delay, reverb, and amp models, as well as a number of special pedal-controlled effects.

Up to 5 effects can be used simultaneously, chained together any way you like. In addition, there are 68 built-in rhythm accompaniment patterns, and you can connect headphones to the output jack (as well as portable music players to the auxiliary input jack) for silent practice sessions. There’s an onboard chromatic tuner that supports all standard guitar tunings, including open and drop tunings, and a Looper feature that allows you to record up to 30 seconds of CD-quality audio. Loop length can be set either manually or to a preset number of quarter notes (up to 64 beats), and you can loop to any rhythm pattern, with automatic quantization that ensures seamless start and end times. Programming is simple and straightforward, thanks to a streamlined user interface and large backlit LCD screen. Advanced editing features such as Swap, Auto Save, and Pre Select make it easy to organize your patches for live performance and allow you to scroll through patches silently while keeping the current patch operational. In addition, the G1Xon’s built-in expression pedal enables you to control input level, output level, or any selected effect parameter in real time.

Dozens of different ways to make you a guitar hero

The G1Xon allows you to choose from 100 different onboard DSP effects, including 5 pedal-controlled effects. For ease of use, these are organized into the following categories:

Dynamics / Filter – Eleven different ways to shape and control your sound with compressors, noise gates, filters, equalizers, and wah effects. Emulate the classic tone of the MXR Dynacomp, dbx 160, Moog Filter, or Z. Vex Seek-Wah, or create all-new effects using the automatic Slow Attack, parametric equalizer, or six-band graphic EQ. Or choose Zoom’s unique Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm, designed to remove noise during pauses while still maintaining your guitar’s natural tone.

Overdrive / Distortion – Twelve of the best boosters, overdrives, fuzzes, and lead guitar sounds you’ve ever heard, including simulations of the BOSS OD-1, MXR Distortion+, Marshall Guv’nor, Fuzz Face, Big Muff, and Pro Co Rat. Our ExtremeDS effect offers the most powerful gain of any distortion effect in the world, and there’s also a simulator that allows your electric guitar to sound like an acoustic.

Amp – Twenty-two of the most realistic models ever created, including simulations of classic tube and solid-state amps from manufacturers like Fender, Marshall, Hiwatt, Mesa Boogie, Orange, Bogner, Matchless, and Diezel. Our amp sounds are so lifelike, you’ll swear on a stack of speaker cabinets you’re listening to the real thing.

Modulation / Special effects – Round out your sound with your choice of sixteen phasers and flangers, plus chorus, pitch shift, tremolo, and vibrato. Included are emulations of the  ADA Flanger, Boss CH-1 Super Chorus, and TC Electronic Corona Chorus, as well as the Zoom HPS, an intelligent harmonizer that plays along in key, and a ring modulator that adds bell-like tones to your guitar. And when you’re ready to go after some truly off-the-wall sounds, try out the endlessly rhythmic Slicer.

Delay / Reverb – Fourteen delays and natural-sounding reverbs, including rooms, halls, plates, springs, and tape delay simulators, all designed to add depth and spaciousness to your sound, with delay times of up to 4 seconds. You’ll even find reverse delays, modulated reverbs, and particle reverbs here—everything you need to place your guitar in a realistic space … or a totally unearthly one.

Rhythms

The perfect accompaniment. 
Rhythm training is an important part of every guitarist’s craft. The G1Xon Rhythm function makes it easy and fun to do. 68 realistic-sounding rhythms are at your fingertips: PCM samples of actual drums playing real-life patterns in a variety of different genres—everything from rock to jazz, and from Emo to Motown. Dozens of quarter-note, eighth-note and sixteenth-note rhythms are provided, in 4/4, 6/8 (shuffle), and 3/4 (waltz time); for the adventurous, there’s even a 5/4 groove!

The Rhythm function can also be used in conjunction with the Looper function (see below), allowing you to craft complex guitar orchestrations overlaying the pattern of your choice.

Looper

Build a complete performance.
Got a great lick that you’d like to expand on, or a distinctive chord progression that you think could serve as the foundation for an exciting improvisation or an inspired solo? Explore your creativity to its fullest with the G1Xon Looper, which allows you to layer up to 30 seconds of performance (through the effect or effects of your choice) in high quality 16-bit 44.1kHz audio. Recording time can either be set manually or to a preset number of quarter notes, up to 64 beats, and starting and stopping the Looper (as well as readying it for an overdub or clearing its memory altogether) is as easy as pressing a pedal—no hands required.

The G1Xon Looper can also be used in conjunction with the Rhythm function, allowing you to play along with the pattern of your choice.

The G1Xon expression pedal

The G1Xon’s built-in expression pedal allows you to alter any selected parameter in real time. You can use it for gain drive or volume (affecting either input or output level), to add wah or filtering, to affect delay time or modulation speed, or a variety of other parameters. In addition, the pedal range can be independently adjusted for each patch—you can even set the minimum value higher than the maximum value for reverse pedaling effects.

There’s also a simple calibration procedure which allows you to customize pedal sensitivity. Whether you’re a feather-light player or a real lead-foot, the G1Xon can adapt to your particular pedaling style.
