What's in the Box

  • Zoom G5n Guitar Multi-Effects Processor
  • AC Adapter
  • Steinberg Sequel LE Recording Software
  • Limited 1-Year Warranty

The Zoom G5n Guitar Multi-Effects Processor is a feature-rich floor-unit that comes loaded with 68 DSP effects, plus 10 faithful and realistic amp/cabinet emulators.

The G5n comes equipped with freshly-developed takes on not only the most-essential guitar sounds like overdrive, distortion, compression, EQ, delay, reverb, flanging, phasing, vibrato, and chorusing, but also obscure multi-effects such as Seq Filter, Gold Drive, Reverse Delay, HD Hall, and OSC Echo. You can connect the G5n to your guitar amp, or directly to a PA system or audio interface using the 10 brand new onboard amp and cabinet emulators.

Up to six effects can be used simultaneously, arranged in any order you like; and, for the forward-thinking musician, signal flow can be reversed. One hundred patch memories, all pre-loaded with factory settings, are provided for storing your custom-edited effects and presets, all accessible via the foot switch. With 40 seconds of loop time and 41 rhythm patterns to play along with, you can build your own mini-orchestra without having to rely on annoying band-mates.

Choose from classic amp models like the Marshall JCM800, Fender Twin Reverb, MESA Boogie Mk3, or Bogner Ecstasy Blue Channel, all of which can be adjusted exactly as you would with the knobs and switches of the real thing. Pair your amp with one of the 5 newly-created cabinet emulators to complete the sound.

In addition, you can expand your palette of sounds with Zoom’s free Guitar Lab software for Mac and Windows. You can download new effects, amp and cabinet emulators, as well as exclusive patches from a diverse and growing list of pro guitarists.
