Zoom Announces G2 Multi-Effects Pedal


Their most powerful multi-effects pedal to date, Zoom's G2 boasts 32-bit processing, 96kHz sampling rate, and 24-Bit A/D, D/A converters.

The G2 digitally simulates the harmonic clipping of analog devices such as tubes and diodes of tube amps and vintage effects. A total of nine effects modules are included, including dynamics, ambience, drive, and modulation. Together they offer 54 types of effects. Use long delays or multi-tap delay of up to 5000 milliseconds. Select dynamic flanger and have the effect level controlled by picking intensity. Select from three types of modulation waveforms for the tremolo. Touch up the harmonic register with the six-band equalizer. The cabinet simulator even gives a choice of mic positions.

With a 96kHz sampling rate, the warmth of a tube amp or the nuance of a vintage effect can be more accurately rendered. The 24-bit A/D, D/A conversion allows for plenty of dynamic range.
