input will bypass the amp's pre-amp and reduce coloring, but it still won't be completely neutral, and still
be colored by the power amp and speaker. If you care a lot about nailing other artists signature tones, then
this can be a problem. If its not a big deal to you, then coloration can work in your favor so long as it was
colored in a way that pleases you, and sometimes you can end up with a great result with an odd combination
of gear. Tone is subjective, and if you like what your hearing, then that's all that matters !

Yeah.. the salesman at the shop said it's best to go with single pedals, but you cannot help but wonder why these multi effects seem to need some special hookups to work..when they design these things they should experiment further with whatever they hookup to-guitar-mixer-amp, etc. and make them compatible and give a list of what type hookups get best results...

This would probably have to be the most controversial debate with FX pedals in general. Old timers
hell bent on traditional tube amps and simplicity with their pedals, vs a younger generation not so
critical against solid state, and don't mind complex FX pedal arrangements. I think the 2 arguments
are just as valid as each other and down to personal preference. Some even choose to fuse the two
worlds together, so its not all black and white. Its another subjective and personal choice to ponder.
Thing is, you won't find many of the analogue types in a forum like this, Zoom deals in digital only.

I can tell you now, these Multi FX manufacturers have paid much attention to testing in various
environments and the variety of gear that they can be plugged into. The proof is in the manuals and
internal parameter configurations you will find within the units. Although, i gotta say, the G5n seems
quite restricted in that respect, so i can see why you would assume they don't do that kind of testing
in general. But its simply not true when you look at other Zoom pedals, POD HD, BOSS GT series,
AXE FX, ect. They have all the goods required to properly interface to almost anything outside of them.
Its also very easy to get a bad result with the wrong combination of gear, cabling, and parameters if
you don't pay close attention to the critical information. So many choices, and more things to go wrong.

Righto guys, the October release is up, and I've made changes to the Custom Patches section and added direct download links. I also
decided to remove the review and forum sections from the list, as i didn't see them as essential resources, and to avoid any bias. :D

Sup guys. I appologize for my absence in keeping up with the updates, but have had some major life changes that required some time away. I'm sure you made your way to the zoom sites anyways, but I will endeavor to complete the update list soon on my return.

Regards. Nuke.

Hey guys.

So its been over 2 years since the first update in April 2016, with a slow down in updates recently, and the firmware has reached
version 3.0. In the recent past, these factors typically indicate the ending of future updates from Zoom. There may be another
update to come yet, but its been roughly 3 months since the last, so don't be surprised if there isn't. I hope all you G5n and G3n
owners are happy with the selection of FX and Amps that have been gradually made available to you over the last 2 years.

Feel free to continue discussing your experiences with the g5n, kinda surprised more people haven't ! Nuke. :^:
