nice playing. very tight. saka maganda yung delays sa lead sounds. :lol:

pero honestly, kelangan mong gumamit ng cab sim pag magrerecord ka. sa tenga ko napaka-fuzzy lahat ng rhythm sounds. napaka-digital sounding. yung cab sim kasi ang nag-rround out nung sound, na-ssmoothen yung rough fuzzy endges sa sound. sa lead sounds hindi gano halata, pero merong fuzziness pa ring konti. tapos watch out mo yung levels sa pagrecord. yung rock lead nag-cclip minsan.  IMHO lang dude a.

Thanks for the comments. Siguro nga titimplahin ko ulit yung tunog with the cab sim. Medyo nadadagdagan kasi ng presence yung tunog pag naka-enable yun eh. Pansin ko nga rin na parang may high frequency buzzing. It was worse when I used the front USB port of my computer.

Ano input level mo pag nagrerecord ka? Sakin nasa -10dB. Tapos tinitimpla ko na lang sa final mix.

hindi ko na maalala yung input level, hehe. yung high-frequency buzzing, hindi kaya caused ng PC monitor mo yun? malakas maka-pickup ng noise from the monitor,  lalo na kung malapit ka sa PC habang nagrerecord at naka high output pickups ka.

Hi folks! I've had my G2 now for well over 7 months, its been my all around practice station and works well outside too. I use it for everything else except my distortion and OD for which I use my DS-1 and Badmonkey. I haven't been able to use much gear but I like what I am able to do with it. Good delays and the EQ is quite good too.

Heres a record with the G2 and badmonkey- > http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=480230&songID=4624610

Playing along a Satch BT, I like to be somewhat subtle about effects and the G2 is good for all of that. Comments are encouraed  :-D

Sweet tone. What did you tweak in the G2? Mind sharing your settings?

Possibly. I will experiment tonight. Thanks for the suggestion.

I can't do specifics right now but the eq is pumped for a bit more mids
and the extended eq is dialed in for more low-end
al
A touch of echo/very subtle
A bit of reverb/Room type iirc
The ZNR is turned on
No modulation
No drive/amp sim - I use the badmonkey or DS-1 for this
everything else not mentioned is turned off

I usually start off with a clean patch and I first dial in the EQ to reflect my guitars real tone
and then just add stuff I need from then on.

nasubukan ko, BD-2 before my G9.2tt dati. walang delay. ngayon may dirt pedal ako before my G2.1u. wala rin niyang problem sa sinasabi mo.

Bro binabago mo ba BD-2 settings mo pag kinabit mo na sa Zoom? Or same pa rin pag BD-2 straight to amp?

^oo binago ko. ginamit ko lang yung BD-2 mainly para malaman kung pano magrerespond yung tubes ng G9 sa overdriven signal. gusto ko malaman kung malaki ba yung effect ng tubes sa signal ng BD-2. and yes, may effect nga.

As promised eto po yung sample ng sound ko:

   ftp://ftp.unixjunction.com/pub/g71ut/

Rough recording lang kaya daming sabit  :-D Yung rock lead eh interpretation ko ng Estranged. Yung metal lead eh based sa scale na ginamit ni Malmsteen sa Trilogy Suite. Yung rhythm sounds eh based sa originals namin.

Gamit ko dito yung Epiphone Les Paul standard straight into the G7.1UT tapos diretso sa USB port ng computer. Di ko ginamit yung cabinet simulation.

Comment lang po sa tunog.

Thanks.

Nice tweak bro. As for me, I'm still trying to struggle with the fuzziness of it's distortion...well, i just got the replacement yesterday so technically, it's just my second day of fiddling with it...I have no problems with modulation but deadlifted is right, most of the distortion sounds are muddy and it painstakingly took me hours just to get my first distorted/overdriven rhythm...ongapala, i forgot all about the cab sim...i'll try to add it with the chain and see what happens... :-D

Hi guys, just experimented with the G2.1u last night. Finally nailed my wah effect using the expression pedal.

I would like to start a new sub topic. Medyo mahirap to write down settings for each patch. And it is all subjective naman.

Now, I would like to discuss the "patch" set up and compare notes. I would need a little help because I have no experience with the zoom in a live gig.

Here is my patch list:

A0 - Clean (all off, para no more bypass mode)
A1 - Blues tone (Blues Jr Drive and some chorus, eq)
A2 - Heavy (Marshall stack drive and some delay)
A3 - The Wah expression pedal - still going to add some drive
A4 - Clean with chorus (for pop songs)
A5 - Flanger sound (parang Johnny Mar, still need some tweaking)

I want to ask you guys out there on the "line" of patches you use. As you know with just two knobs, going from one patch to another is step up or step down, no shortcuts.

ako naman

A0 - delay for solos
A1 - bypass lahat
A2 - tremolo controlled by exp pedal
A3 - delay controlled by exp pedal
(A2 and A3 ginagamit ko for one of our songs kaya magkatabi)
A4 - chorus
A5 - bypass
(kung gagamit akong chorus, kelangan ko ulit ng bypass na katabing patch)
A6 - delay ulit gaya ng A1
A7 - bypass
A8 - harmonizer
A9 - whammy pedal +1 octave

andami kong bypass patches. saves time para mag-apak apak. palipat lipat. madalas ang default patch ko is A5, para may access ako sa chorus at delay kaagad. tapos ginawa kong odd numbers ang lahat ng bypass patches para hindi ko makalimutan. since walang name ang patches to indicate yung ginagawa niya, nalilito akong tandaan parati.

Excellent tip!  :-D I should have thought of that. Instead of going all the way down to A0  from A5 for the bypass, I will make another clean patch at A6.

Damn, you're good. Going to make new patches tonight.  :mrgreen:

Well I have read reviews about people who switched from GT8 to G7.1UT. They all said that the G7.1UT is hands down better tone-wise.

bigat? weight-wise? mas mabigat yung GT-6. sa tunog? anlayo ng bigat. mas magaganda IMHO ang hi-gain sound ng zoom kaysa GT-6. mas madali pa timplahin yung zoom. nanggaling ako sa GT-6 to GT-8 to G9.

yung GT-6, sa dirt preamps hindi mo pwede i-todo yung gain. tunog digital. tapos lalo na yung presence knob, hindi pwede i-todo, again magtutunog digital. tapos naalala ko nun, bukod sa preamp EQ, kelangan ko pa ng additional EQ module para maayos ko yung tunog kasi nakukulangan ako sa bigat. sa G series, madali mag-tweak. like a real amp ang pagtweak. pwede mo i-todo lahat ng knobs, ok lang ang tunog. pero syempre hindi pa rin adviseable na naka-10 lahat ng knobs.  :lol:

di naman ako kasi malakas mag gain kaya ok lang.sa dirt naman,medyo tama ka bro.
nag dadagdag pako ng eq para ma shape ko ng husto.+1 din sa di pag todo ng presence,
parang nag be-break up.
anyway,sale pa ba sa jb?di ko kasi alam,taga iloilo ako. :?
