    It's very different and has WAY less effects/models but I'm sure it has some of the M3 effects/models.

    Use Chrome, it pops up a translation option whenever it loads a foreign laguage page.

    Here's some key specs:

    Effect Type: 55
    Simultaneous Effects: Six
    Patch Memory: Fifty

    So yes, ultimately a G3 with only a single switch and a few less effects.

    Msrp, ¥10500 = $134.00. Actual selling price has got to be around $100.

    Don't know if it's any good or not, but that's pretty damn cool.

    Checking out the translation of the Japanese manual and specs and it very much looks like that in spite of the mini USB port this little pedal does not work with the Edit & Share software, the USB will only be used for firmware updates.
    That's a major bummer and if true would be big mistake, no patch creating from your PC, no patch backup or exchange.
    I thought this would be a clever little G3 and i was very interested because of the form factor but without edit & share i'll pass.

    What about the black bluetooth version? Can't think of what the bluetooth would be for if not for using some sort of patch editor.

    Rockpalace notes that the usb port is a usb audio interface, so who knows?

    Like the boss LS2. you have two outputs on the left of the multistomp. Toggles between the two outputs.

    I know the LS2 - I have one. Sure about the outputs of the Zoom stomp? I'm using my LS2 to toggle between two different effect chains. Was hoping for something similar in the Zoom.

    Just had a closer look at the graphics on that Line Selector. To me it looks you can use it toggle between going through all the following effects and going directly to the output. Cool. That means you'll be able toggle a whole chain of effects on/off with the stomp button. I wish they would introduce the same stomp in the G3 (which I own).

    Isn't this just Zoom copying the Digitech iStomp?

    iStomp:
    - no amp models
    - only one effect at a time, you need to buy each one and download from your iPhone/iPad every time you switch
    - no patch memory
    - no lcd screen, so you need to memorize the controls
    - and probably a lot more I'm missing
    - more expensive, esp. when you consider the cost of purchasing each effect

    Assuming it sounds similar to the G3 and G5, it will blow the iStomp out of the water.
