The ZOOM G1X Four is a multi-effects processor designed for use with electric guitars, giving you an included expression pedal to provide continuously variable control over certain effects. Offered in an easy to use stompbox format, the G1X Four sports a wide selection of processes, amp emulations, and other features, such as an onboard 30-second looper and a chromatic tuner. With 68 built-in rhythm patterns, you can add drum loops to the mix, which can quite helpful during looping.
Stomp on 70 traditional and boutique effects
The Zoom G1X FOUR comes loaded with more than 70 traditional and boutique effects. Add dimension to your sound with delays and reverbs. Give it a polished sheen with a chorus, flanger, or phaser. Or reach for something more esoteric like a ring modulator, pitch-shifting delay, or a sitar simulation — it’s all in there. There are also 13 classic amplifier and cabinet models onboard, covering everything from squeaky-clean tranquillity to high-gain anarchy. Use up to five effects simultaneously, chained together in any order. And when you’ve got everything dialled in, you can save up to 50 user-created patches.
Get inspired with 68 built-in drum patterns
Metronomes are great for keeping time, but they’re not very inspiring. That’s why the G1X FOUR includes 68 built-in drum patterns. These great-sounding rhythms give you plenty to jam along to, boasting multiple time signatures — 4/4, 3/4, and more.
Craft multi-part arrangements with a 30-second looper
Built-in drum patterns are great for keeping the beat, but they don’t do much for harmonic context when you’re practising. But thanks to the Zoom G1X FOUR’s onboard looper, you can lay down a chord progression, loop it, then play over it. You can record and loop up to 30 seconds of CD-quality audio, which is more than enough to craft dynamic multi-part arrangements. And don’t think that the usefulness of the G1X FOUR’s looper is limited to practice sessions — it’s an awesome performance tool too!
