The Zoom G7.1ut Guitar Effects Console delivers absolutely everything! Deep inside the all-metal chassis beats ZOOM’s ultra-fast 32-bit ZFX-3 processor delivering 36 of the absolutely best amp models (20 tube amps) all warmed up through the onboard 12AX7 preamp tube circuitry for unprecedented power, tone, and over the top harmonics.
True analog performance pours out of each of the 160 patches on the G7.1ut (80 User/80 preset) and with 7 stomp-proof footswitches under your control, and blazing fast 7ms patch switching, you can switch sounds right on the beat and not miss a note. A very cool performance feature lets you toggle live between two different preamps while keeping all the spatial effects and modulation the same. The very smart harmonized pitch shifter follows your playing note for note and the tour-tough all steel expression pedal is easily programmed to control just about any parameter of the 92 on-board effects (9 effect modules can function simultaneously). Editing is fast and easy with the backlit LCD info screen and analog control knobs. The G7.1ut also features a USB interface (cable sold separately) and ships with Cubase LE multi-track recording software to turn your computer into a full-blown multi-track recording studio! Includes AC adapter.
Energizer using 12AX7 tube
Giving body to the guitar sound and adding supple power and intensity - that is the task of the Energizer. Turning up the TUBE control to drive the 12AX7 produces warm crunch with rich harmonics. The BOOST control spruces up highs and lows, resulting in more transparency. Enjoy a powerful tone also when recording directly to a line input or via USB on a computer.
ZFX-3 - a 32-bit DSP designed by ZOOM
The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. ZOOM has started a fresh chapter with its new ZFX-3 chip. The 32-bit architecture ensures outstanding performance and allows smooth and detailed signal processing. Accuracy and speed ensure that even delicate picking and fingering work come across with impressive clarity.
DSP sound modeling plus tube circuitry create the ultimate in distortion
96 kHz sampling and 24-bit A/D/A conversion assure super high resolution sound. An abundance of signal processing power allows accurate recreation of the complex upper-range harmonics that are the hallmark of tube amplifiers. Analog circuitry using a 12AX7 tube then adds that classic warmth and sonic impact to the DSP sound. The result combines the best of the digital and analog worlds: distortion so advanced and sophisticated it elevates your guitar playing to the next level.
Preamp section with two channels
The preamp section, comprised of the amp/drive-modeling, and EQ modules offers two channels per patch. You can easily select a channel by simple foot switch operation. Toggle between a Fender clean sound for rhythm and a Marshall drive sound for lead, while keeping modulation and spatial effect settings the same. The user interface with analog knobs lets you shape the sound with the same facility as on a guitar amp.
Great for stage work or direct recording
The amp/drive-modeling blocks have two dedicated algorithms for each amp/drive type, designed for live playing and direct recording. The CABINET effect simulates amp and mic recording characteristics as well, and the algorithm is automatically switched according to the CABINET on/off setting.This lets you bring the same guitar sound that you used during practice or recording right on to the stage. Alternatively, sound settings that were determined during a session with the band can be used seamlessly in the studio as well.
Amp select feature
This function optimizes frequency response to match the amp that you are using. Settings are available to get the best out of popular models such as Roland JC-120, a Fender combo, and a Marshall stack. The -10 dBm/+4 dBm output level switch allows the G7.1ut to be used as a preamp, directly connected to the power amp input of a guitar amplifier.
6-band graphic equalizer
The built-in EQ module has six frequency bands optimized for electric guitar. Peaking type filters in the crucial middle range (400 Hz, 800 Hz, 3. 2 kHz, 6.4 kHz) are augmented by shelving type filters at the low and high end (160 Hz and 12 kHz). This ensures the shortest possible route from inspiration to actual sound.
Guitar amplifier/stomp box modeling
Analog devices such as tubes and diodes have unique clipping characteristics. Sophisticated digital simulation finally makes it possible to recreate the sound of vintage tube amps and effect devices with astonishing realism. From popular names such as Fender, Marshall, and VOX to modern amps including MESA BOOGIE, Hughes & Kettner, and Diezel - the list of choices is extensive. The cabinet simulator even has settings for mic position, to achieve totally natural sounding performance.

Real-time modulation for 4 simultaneous parameters fosters lively playing
The built-in expression pedal allows control over effect parameters in realtime. Common pedal effects such as wah, pitch, and volume control are ofcourse supported, but you can also opt to adjust drive gain, modulationrate, delay/reverb mix level, and other parameters. Up to four parameterscan be assigned to a single pedal, allowing dramatic techniques such asraising the chorus, delay, and reverb at the same time. Create a rotary speaker style sound by varying tremolo, chorus, and auto-panning rate. Also,the ARRM (Auto Repeat Real-time Modulation) function is capable of producingrhythmical tone changes, opening up a wealth of possibilities.
World's fastest patch change speed: 7 ms
Switching patches has never been smoother or less noticeable. With its record-setting speed of 0.007 seconds (7ms), the G series never miss a beat.When changing to a lead preset in the middle a song, you no longer need to press the switch in advance, simply push the foot switch and start playing your solo.
Built-in tuner supports special tuning requirements
The guitar tuner can be called up instantly by pushing a dedicated footswitch. In addition to the standard auto-chromatic tuner, various othertuning methods for guitar and bass are possible, and open tunings are alsosupported. High-brightness LED indicators make the note readout easy to seeon a dark stage. The calibration range is A 435 to 445 Hz, and muted tuning (without sound output) is also possible. Tuning your guitar has never been easier or more convenient.
ZNR keeps playing pauses really quiet
The built-in ZOOM Noise Reduction (ZNR) provides optimized signal performance for guitar. While minimizing any alteration of the original sound, ZNR cuts unwanted noise during pauses. Tails of sustained notes remain unaffected, with a long natural release.

Simply plug the unit in to your computer with a USB cable to use the high-quality sound of the G7.1ut in a computer-based recording system. The high-performance DAW application Cubase LE comes bundled with the unit, so you can start creating sophisticated music straight away. Because playback from the DAW application can be monitored at the unit itself, there are no latency problems during recording. (USB cable sold separately)
Windows XP / Mac OS X 10.2 or later
MIDI IN/OUT jacks allow linking to other equipment
The ability to exchange MIDI data with other devices opens up a wealth of possibilities. You can switch patches in conjunction with a MIDI enabled preamp, or use the unit as a real-time controller for other MIDI equipment. By connecting the MIDI interface to a computer, you may use a dedicated editor/librarian application to edit and store patch data.
AUX IN jacks accommodate external sources
The playback signal from external sources can be plugged-into the AUX input. Jam along with a rhythm machine, external CD or mp3 player. You may also utilize the connectors as a stereo line input to record audio into your computer via the USB interface.
