Zoom MS-50G

Is this the same as the G3 with less Output options and smaller footprint ?

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.

Well we don't even know yet

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

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?
