96kHz sampling brings out the true nature of acoustic guitar sound      07/12/05

Acoustic Guitar FX Pedal From Zoom


The interraction of strings, neck, and body gives acoustic guitars a rich and detailed tone that is hard to capture with a piezo or magnetic pickup which can often yield a thin sound dominated by the strings and lacking in body resonance. This tendency can't be fully compensated with a conventional preamp equalizer but the new A2 from Zoom aims to sort out the problem and allow the natural acoustic sound to shine through. The A2 series incorporates 24-bit / 96 kHz sampling and sophisticated sound modeling technology to process the line signal from the pickup, adding body tone and the spatial ambience that is created by mic recording, even when playing through an amplifier or PA speaker. The A2 has options for optimising the frequency response for the type of pickup and amp that you are using. This includes not only settings for acoustic guitar piezo and magnetic pickups but also single coil and humbucker pickups so that the A2 can be used with an electric guitar as a an acoustic guitar simulator. Other features include a six band linear or two band parametric EQ, feedback control for automatic or manual detection and attenuation of feedback on stage, 8 effects modules with 47 effects including reverb and chorus, tuner and built-in drum machine. A simulation module provides modelled simulations of 12 classic acoustic guitars including Gibsons, Martins and resonators. For more information .
