This pedal has the benefits of a multi FX and the functionality of a pedal board, it also has a looper, and comes with recording software. it's easy to use, but it can take a lot of work to get the sound in your head figured out hence the 4 stars. the only downside really is programming is a little time consuming It also comes with software so you connect the FX to your laptop and create your patches that way - which is excellent Oh and a tube boost with a genuine tube! and for the price, theres nothing better for the bedroom guitarist who does the odd rehersal and gig here and there
Comes packed with more effects than one could ever hope to use. This pedal fist of all has a built in 12AX7 tube which to solid state players can be a godsend to warm up their tone in the eyes of purists. The 3D Z pedal is great fun and ands some great functionality to where you want to easily be able to alter a number of different parameters simultaneously (a function which it's successor has unfortunately dropped). There is also the option of connecting an additional expression pedal to give it similar functionality to its predecessor the Zoom G9.2TT which employed two pedals either side of the unit. A highlight feature for me is that you can connect the unit to the computer and visually build and save a multitude of effects chains using some of the biggest blatant rip-offs of well known equipment; and it sounds phenomenal. The only let downs I have with this unit is that some of the more useful buttons i.e. patch change and scroll are not foot switchable and to navigate between banks you need to navigate a labyrinth of elaborate tap dances on top of the machine to find your next setting. The unit also doesn't have a convenient true bypass feature and instead requires you to manually deselect all your activated effects to bypass. Although the some of the cleaner amp sims are fantastic the dirtier ones are more often than not a let down with a lot of background noise or sound rather tinny. All up though as a multi effects unit it certainly lives up to its title offering a convenient way to set up a digital pedalboard.
