Yeah that is the million dollar question. Will Zoom actually follow through on upgrades? If they don't they are going to lose alot of guitarists that were expecting a logical progression of the G5, which at this point they are not seeing. I have a Zoom MS-70CDR as well (On my performing board) and really want some of those effects on this G5n. At this point the Guitar Lab software is pretty much useless. You can't edit/tweak patches even, just rename, backup, and move around.NucleusX wrote:Extracted from Overview.Guitarist1969 wrote:We've actually been talking about this unit alot over at thegearpage.net:

There does appear to be an ability to download new effects via the new guitar lab software, but the concensus is it is a step
backwards from a G5 by the removal of the XLR as well much fewer default effects/amps (Which is the biggest concern).
The adding of the new footwitches is nice though.
Hope they offer the MS-70CDR quality effects.
"Use our free ZOOM Guitar Lab Mac/Windows software to instantly download new patches, effects, and amp/cabinet simulators.
It includes both a Patch Manager for effects chains and an Effects Manager, with a simple graphic user interface that provides
point-and-click control over tweaking, building, and naming your custom patches."
My apologies to Guitarist1969, you are correct sir, I think I need glasses ! Its not so obvious in the software either without
a G5n connected. Lets hope the selection and realism of the modelling compensates for what they omitted. There are many
FX from the MultiStomps and Stompshare store I'd like to see make it into the list, fingers crossed. The only question that
remains with me is if these future FX downloads themselves will be free, or have some kind of price-tag on them ?
I have had the G5n for about 2 weeks now and loving the tones thus far that are built in. Coming from the G5, it is an improvement in some regards(Sound quality and added footswitches) and a downgrade in others (Pedal, XLR, effect choices, tweakability of indiv effects).
