New Drive Sounds
Our completely redesigned drive sounds use our most technologically
advanced spectral analysis, impulse response and frequency response
data, making all the new settings offered on the G2Nu/G2.1Nu the most
realistic models we've ever created. There are 20 models of legendary
guitar amps and stomp boxes, with accurately fine-tuned sonic aspects
like gain setting, range and harmonics character. In addition, you can
choose from 10 original sounds created by ZOOM, designed for excellent
clarity and presence, capturing your dynamic range adjustments and picking
nuances that give you that truly expressive tone that you crave
USB Audio Interface
The G2Nu/G2.1Nu operate as an audio interface, letting you record directly
to a computer connected via USB cable. All your sound settings used during
rehearsal or a live performance can be recorded onto your DAW software.
Its direct monitoring capability eliminates any latency problems, assuring
realistic studio conditions and hassle-free operation. ■Quantization

Edit and Share makes it easy to share your patches with others
Our Edit & Share software is available through a free download and allows
you to use your computer to intuitively create, edit and save your own, personalized
amp and effect settings. Use our “radar charts” to show a visual representation
of the tone characteristics of each preset patch. And amp/effect type sorting helps you
quickly find the tone you are after. Using drag and drop to rearrange patches makes editing
easy and fun, and you can even download the latest patches online. You can even share your
patches with others or download a cool patch someone else created.
Direct Mode optimized for recording
All 30 drive sounds have a special modelling algorithm designed specifically for line recording.
Simply turn on the DIRECT key on the top panel and enjoy dynamic amp sounds that recreate the
ideal speaker cabinet characteristics over a flat response audio system or headphones. Of course,
this mode works perfectly for direct recording to a DAW application via the USB audio interface.
20 patches created by Steve Vai
The G2Nu/G2.1Nu features 20 highly creative and versatile patches produced under the supervision of master
guitarist Steve Vai. Also included are dozens of presets that authentically recreate the vintage rock sounds of
the sixties and seventies, plus the styles of many famous artists. We supply 100 patches right out of the box and
you can create your own and save up to 100 more right on the pedal.
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 provides intuitive operation
One of the most important and useful new additions to the G2Nu/G2.1Nu is its large 1.9 inch display. This new screen makes creating
your own sounds a breeze. But we also have simplified the interface with three large control knobs to make changing your tone similar
to a stomp box, making the overall operation easy and intuitive. Module selection Effect setting
A collector's edition of 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 ambience 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.
Studio quality 6-band graphic equalizer on-board
The frequency bands of the built-in 6-band graphic equalizer were designed specifically for electric guitar. In the crucial midrange,
which determines a great deal about tonal quality (400 Hz, 800 Hz, 3.2 kHz, 6.4 kHz), peaking type characteristics are used. The low end
(160 Hz) and high end (12 kHz) are adjusted with shelving type curves. This gives you the complete tone control capability normally found
on high-end studio gear.
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
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 on par with studio equipment
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 G2Nu/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 versital 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. Foot Switch FS01
Expression Pedal add 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. Expression Pedal FP02
Heavy-duty construction and slim size
While offering performance and functions far beyond its class, the G2Nu/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 G2Nu/G2.1Nu is ready to rock.
Runs on Batteries, AC adapter or USB phantom power
The G2Nu/G2.1Nu can use three different power sources: AC adaptor, 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 G2Nu/G2.1Nu gives you power options that work. 。 AC Adaptor AD-16 (Equivalent to AD-0006)
