Zoom G3xn Pitch Shifter Drop C Tuning
So, quick question - as I'm away from my Zoom for now.
I've yet to use the Pitch shifter. Our practice band plays Hotel California and the singer wants to drop it from Bm to Am.
Can I use the pitch shifter to get me there? I don't wanna re-learn all those fills and the solo!
Yes make sure to put in on proper arrangement from the chain

The Zoom's pitch shifter isn't really good. It has a noticeable latency and doesn't track very well also it sounds rather artificial. It's nice for subtle effects but I wouldn't use it to tune down a normal guitar sound.
I tried to use it for an octave down to emulate a bass which didn't work very well, it might be okay for a half tone down though.
Is that possible to connect external pedals to g5n?
Ive heard the looper is kinda strange so maybe a external one would be nice.
Hey guys not sure if you can help me but I picked up a zoom g3xn the other evening. Guitar lab keeps crashing before I get a chance to update patches. I have updated the firmware . Any ideas what to do?
will this rig work?:
g5n usb -> computer/ableton
g5n mono out -> amp
will i be able to play sounds from ableton into my amp with just this connections?
Software Update: V4.1 for Guitar Lab
Zoom Guitar Lab version 4.1 has been released to correct the following issue:
Effect images are sometimes not displayed correctly under certain PC configurations.
Cheers got it working. It's pretty decent. Id be very excited to see how this modelling lark goes in a few years!
Yes, you can simply put the looper after the g5n
Its working for for drop C to Bb but way more than that i dont know, theres still no %100 stable pitch shifting technology on affordable multi effects today
You can put anything before the unit, mostly od/dt pedals, and after that eq/modulation/delay/reverb. It will sound good.
But keep in mind that it works like a regular rig: pedals>>amp>>cab>>fx>>etc...
Also, I would hesitate to use a separate OD pedal as a boost pedal. It may overdrive the input jack of the G5n which would sound horrid. However, if the used amp model has lower headroom than the input jack, a boost pedal would theoretically work as intended.
Using an overdrive pedal at unity gain as your dirt sound, though, should sound no different than if you used it in a traditional rig (barring the difference between a real amp and the amp models in the G5n)
Hey mate, which pedals do you use before? I have good results using od/dt pedals, mostly pushing overdriven amps.
Thanks for asking! I use nothing before it. After it, though, I use an old Catalinbread Super Chile Picoso which makes everything that goes through it sound fatter and warmer.
Very interesting. For my personal purpouses I use nothing after. Run straight through a d.i. box in the FOH or in front or fx loop of an amp.
If you are using IR with a Mooer Radar or something else
Try this, use the cab BGN 4x12 mics off and the Low cut & High cut as an EQ.
It will give you a lot of punch with IR.
Same into an amp fx return .
Here an example
