Drag and Drop

Your sounds may be complex but building them shouldn’t be. With easy-to-use application driven technology, the G6’s 4.3-inch color touchscreen lets you drag, drop and swipe your way to new sounds.

ZOOM ORIGINAL AMP MODELS


Krampus

Combines the brightness of an 80's British amp, with the solid low range of a modern high gain amp.

Redloom

Merges the simple tone of early guitar amps with the rich overtones of a 60's tube amp, perfect for rhythm guitar.

Velvet

Provides a smooth character that balances the dynamic response between the wound and plain strings, enabling you to play both lead and rhythm without switching amp channels.

Chris Payton

Muddy

New Distortion Effects

graph

Razor Drive

Razor Drive uses comb filtering to control the sound saturation by boosting the filter and therefore distortion, at each frequency point of resonance. This processing creates a new distortion never before heard.

graph

Wave Shaper

Wave Shaper applies a new original algorithm to shape the waveform and create a unique sound extremely rich in harmonics.

New Modulation Effects


graph

PolyShift

PolyShift adds subtle sound variances over a two-octave range to deliver a modern pitch shifting effect.


Geminos

Geminos is a real-time doubling effect that adds thickness and width by triple overdubbing the original dry signal. This reproduces a random organic texture when playing chords and powerful sustain for solos.

graph

SwellVibe

SwellVibe, unlike any standard vibrato that starts modulating the signal from the start, applies pitch modulation with a time lag affecting only the sustain of your sound. It inspires unconventional ways for playing ambient pads.
