    Hi!
    Is there a way to make reverbs and delays keep on fading out after being switched off? In other words - by default on G3/G5 revebrs and delays act like "insterts" not "sends" which means the sound is instantly cut off the moment I turn the effect off.
    My analog pedals keep a tail after being switched off. This should be at least as an option!

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe the answer is a definite no. I have a G5 but I never really turn off a reverb in mid song. Also, the delays will just cut off.

    The more experienced guys here will probably confirm for you.

    It does appear to work like that.
    Like Slim, I've never found it to be a problem.

    from what i understand, with out some kind of switching / routing system you cant do this, it would be nice if zoom updated them to include this feature

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, the reverb and delay tails are included only in:
    Digitech GSP1101
    AXE Fx (any version)
    Kemper
    and I'm not sure about Boss GT100.

    It must be an expensive option, or nobody cares about who plays live...

    ok, thank you!
    Actually this is a very important feature which will force me to keep my analog reverbs/delays on board when playing live. Most obvious reason would be to have wide, loud and spacey section which is followed by dry and tight parts. It would sound amateur and unnatural to cut these sections abruptly.
    Mod effects are great, though

    GT10 yes, GT100 no. Strange way for Boss to update their models...:jo

    Weirdly enough the tails can be enabled for reverbs and delays in the Zoom MS50G which is the one pedal sized (and otherwise limited) version of the G3.

    Are you talking about delays and reverb in the same patch, or in different ones? Because I turn on and off delay in the same patch it keep the tails sounding, but not when I change from one patch to another (I'm talking about MS-50G).

    I'm pretty sure my M9 does this. Or it's at least an option.

    Zoom added this feature in the multistomp and in the a3, I am confident they will add in the g3 and g5 with next upgrade of the firmware

    You can assign input bypass to reverb and delay to an external switch but unfortunately.you can't set that function to the built in pedals.

    I'm talking about turning delay/reverb on/off within the same patch.

    Ok, I thought you were talking about a way to keep the trails on when changing patches, but I think there isn't. Maybe with a firmware update...:huh

    Nah, doubt it. For keeping the trail going it would probably have to keep the delay effect running which would potentially require double the processing power.
