Smooth Tube Distortion Models Made Possible by the ZFX-3 Processor To recreate the rich blend of harmonics in the upper frequency ranges that are unique to tube amplifiers, you need a powerful, fast processor. Thanks to its high-resolution signal processing using 96 kHz sampling and 24-bit A/D/A conversion, the advanced ZFX-3 sound engine implements complex digital modeling technology to convincingly recreate those subtle tube amp characteristics. Large LCD Panel One of the most important and useful new additions to the G2.1Nu is its large 1.9 inch display. This new screen makes creating your own sounds a breeze. But the interface is also simplified with three large control knobs to make changing your tone similar to a stomp box, making the overall operation easy and intuitive. 83 Guitar Effect Types Ranging from standard to advanced, nine modules with 83 high-quality effects provide unsurpassed flexibility and tonal variation. Choose effects like the MXR Dynacomp, famed for its peculiar compression, Vox Crybaby and other renowned wah pedals, four types of chorus with great depth and ambiance, and six types of reverb providing transparent clarity. Or let your tonal imagination run free with dynamic flangers, tremolo with selectable modulation waveform, harmonized pitch shifter, multi-tap delay, reverse delay and many more. Auto-Chromatic Tuner with LED Indication The LCD display and LED indicators make its auto-chromatic tuner easy to use on a dark stage. Its mute tuning capability is also very useful on stage. Integrated Drum Machine with PCM Sound Sources Choose from 40 different rhythm patterns including 8-beat and 16-beat as well as 4-beat, shuffle and many other variations. The intuitive tap key makes it easy to directly set the tempo. Start a jam session anytime, anywhere. Looper Function Records up to 5 Seconds Use its 5 second looper function to record, playback and overdub guitar phrases that can be controlled with your pedal. This "sound-on-sound" feature lets you lay down phrases in real time, and during a live solo, you can use the looped sound as backing. Ultra-Low-Noise Design Specifications such as a signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB and noise floor of -100 dBm provide a level of performance that is unsurpassed. Background noise is effectively eliminated, and Zoom's proprietary ZNR noise reduction also removes unwanted noise. Even the tails of sustained notes come out beautifully, with natural release. Extremely Fast 5ms Patch Change With its amazing patch change speed of only 5 milliseconds, the G2.1Nu allows you to never miss a beat. Change from rhythm playing to a solo in an instant by simply pushing the switch and start playing the solo phrase at the same time because the muting interval when switching patches has been reduced to an absolute minimum. Optional Footswitch Allows Versatile Remote Operation The optional foot switch (FS01) allows tap tempo input for rhythm, looper, and effects. Other selectable functions include rhythm pattern start/stop, bank switching, delay input muting, and delay hold on/off switching. Expression Pedal Adds Further Versatility to Your Guitar Play You can connect an optional expression pedal (FP02) to control effect parameters such as wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate, or delay/reverb mix in real time. The G2.1Nu has a built-in expression pedal and a dedicated PEDAL ASSIGN key which makes it easy to select the effect you want control on any patch setting. Effect on/off switching is also possible by pushing the pedal fully down. Heavy-Duty Construction and Slim Size While offering performance and functions far beyond its class, the G2.1Nu has a sturdy metal chassis that can stand up to the rigors of the road, yet, it's still compact enough to fit into the pocket of a guitar case. Wherever you need it: on tour, in the studio, or rehearsals, the G2.1Nu is ready to rock. Runs on Batteries, AC Adapter, or USB Phantom Power The G2.1Nu can use three different power sources: AC adapter, batteries or USB bus power when plugged into your computer. Four AA / LR6 alkaline batteries are good for 6.5 hours of continuous use. Whether in the studio or on stage, the G2.1Nu gives you power options that work.
