Zoom G5 Volume Control

Post by mjschneider » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:50 pm

HI there everyone!

Glad to be here. I am an old timer with Zoom products. I had a Zoom 9000S a million years ago and it lasted until 2008. I went without until I bought a Boss unit which stunk. Then my daughter bought me the G5! I love it! I haven't used it much in the four years I have it, so I re-read the manual and couldn't figure out how to use the pedal to control the volume.

I joined the forum, waited to be accepted, and wouldn't ya know it, I figured it out. So, I guess that it does not control the volume right out of the box. You have to use the Z Pedal Custom and set it to Output Volume. I guess that's ok, but I think lose the ability to use the pedal button for something. If someone could confirm that, I would greatly appreciate it.

The only other question I have is, how do I save that volume control function to every patch? I want the pedal for Volume, Wah, etc.

Thanks!!

Mike

I guess I'm gonna just go ahead and buy the FP02 and use that as the volume pedal.

Better late than never!

To get the Zoom G5 pedal to work as a Volume pedal and as a Wah when you use the toe switch.
First make sure there is nothing set for the Z-pedal and that it is set for "thru"
Then pick a wah effect such as PedalCry or PedalVX , turn on the effect, press Total, press page on screen 1 to get to CTL SW, assign the switch to the wah effect, press Total again. Now set the Z-pedal to Volume Boost .
You should be able to use the pedal as a volume pedal and switch to wah by pressing the toe switch on the pedal. Rememberthe wah pedal effect must be chosen and assigned before adding the Z- pedal effect.
Enjoy
