Try to messaged them through https://www.facebook.com/ZoomNorthAmerica/

i messaged them there and they responded
I just sent another email asking if they plan on doing any more firmware updates and about the possibility of adding a couple more effect slots (I thought about asking about seamless delay for you,
Thank you

I will post once they answer and let you know what they say. It probably won't be till later in the week though. I doubt they'll reply on the weekend. I just went to the Zoom website and used the email on their contact page.
Thank you

I'd like to see a full-featured dynamic expander. I think the G-series has the capability to do this.

It would implement some ideas from gates and compressors, but with a couple added functions. You would have an adjustable THRESHOLD which you use to set a mid point in terms of dynamics. When the input level exceeds the threshold, the level is increased in direct proportion to the peak level above the threshold. So at the threshold there is no level boost. And when the input is above the threshold, the output is increased using a ratio, like a compressor does. When signal is below the threshold, a different ratio is used. This would allow the profile to have an "angle" at the threshold point.

A SENSING setting would allow you to adjust how the "DCA" determines the level average over time. It would be akin to Peak vs RMS, but allowing you to set how much averaging of input level over time is used to set the output level.

Attack and Release times would smooth out the response and transitions.

Most of the time, a player wants less dynamics, and more limiting or compressing, but there are times when having this would make the instrument feel "hyper-responsive" which might be a very useful effect.

The applications could be to "de-compress" signals where you set a threshold approximately where some limiting is occuring and attempt to rescale level changes above the threshold. Similarly, if an amp model is used that adds drive, then some dynamic shape could be returned to the signal post distortion.

If a cross-over was added, it could be a nice way to have a noise gate on steroids that gives you much more fine control over the noise.

The question is why Zoom N series doesnt have Seamless Delay that the past Zoom models have, is that very hard to add to the new processor dsp?

You've asked this same question on three threads now. You are on fire!! :)

Maybe Zoom is not making new multi effects, maybe the n series is the last multi effects line.

For many years, Zoom have had multifx pedals with and without delay trails, as-well as "n" suffix model designations.
Neither of those 2 factors would logically suggest that Zoom will no longer produce multifx pedals.
