Zoom say that their new G3 Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator Pedal unites the ease of a stompbox pedalboard with the power of a multieffects pedal and adds a USB audio interface to the mix. Here's the rest of what they have to say about it...
With complete control over individual effects and amp modeling, you can modify your tones on the fly while performing. An onboard drum machine and looper make the G3 and incredible new option for guitarists of every level.
Most of the G3's comprehensive features stem from its three large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches. Together they form a graphical interface that allows you to utilize up to three amp models or stomp box effects in any combination at any time. Or use the G3's authentic amplifier modeling and over 100 built-in DSP effects to craft and store up to 100 original tones.
The G3 is also a USB audio interface for DAW recording on your computer. The pedal is bundled with Zoom's Edit & Share software so you can easily create new patches and it also comes with Steinberg's Sequal LE DAW for all your recording needs. Players will get over 6 hours of operation using four AA batteries, or can power the G3 with as USB bus or the included AC adapter.
