So I bought my first multi effects processor and its a little Zoom G1N biggrin.gif Got it for $20 tongue.gif and, honestly, its pretty good, I like it. For 20 bucks, its more than worth it smile.gif I know its a discontinued old model, but its good enough for me happy.gif



I like the built in presets, but I'd like to modify them to exactly what I like. The sounds are awesome, at least for me biggrin.gif I have no experience at all with effects processors. I've only used simple pedals till now. But I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase happy.gif

Any tips or advice from you guys on using effects processors or specifically the G1N or just any Zoom product? Because all the options I see on the user manual are pretty overwhelming, I'm trying not to bite more than I can chew.

$20??? Great deal mate! Congrats. smile.gif At first you will feel a bit confused with so many options but after some days of experimentation you will find which things work for you and which not. Start from the basics, just drive and EQ to get a tone that you like and feel comfortable playing. Then you can experiment with modulation fxs, delays, compressors, and so.

Looking forward your samples! smile.gif

Yes, I think at 20 bucks, I got a real bargain tongue.gif

That's a good point to start, I'll do that now smile.gif And yep, hopefully I'll post samples soon biggrin.gif

I really loved my Zoom G21U, even though I've moved on since :-).

Here are some patches to try: http://guitarpatches.com/patches.php?unit=G1

My biggest gripe with the zoom was that you can't edit patches on a computer. A lot of knob-fiddling required :-)

That's a steal!!! Even if you use it just for one or two effects it's a still great deal. GAB is spot on with his advice here. Record some clips for us!

I'm a fan of the acoustic preset in the Zoom G1N smile.gif Oh and for recording (since its not G1U and doesn't have USB support), I connected its output to the line in of my sound card, is that okay? It does give some noise when using distortion, but I think a combination of the built-in noise gate of G1N and a noise gate VST will do the job, right?

This is a small sample of the acoustic preset on my G1N smile.gif No VSTs used at all, all the effects are from the G1N biggrin.gif

And more now! biggrin.gif This preset is probably my favorite for rock rhythm, although I'd like to make it sound heavier for metal smile.gif Oh, and the drum track is generated by the G1N too, the audio quality is pretty decent happy.gif So I recorded the drums on one track then recorded the riff over the track, because when you turn on the drum machine on it, the reverb/delay effects go away till you turn the drum machine off.

What do you think? biggrin.gif I think that's a pretty awesome deal I got on this smile.gif
