Zoom G5 Setting up for volume and wah pedal

Post by Ratiug » Sun Apr 15, 2018 10:59 pm

I couldn't seem to find how to get this done either in the manual or online. I figured it out so I'll post for others to find.
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.
Let me know if this works for you!
