Our first update to our patch set for Zoom G3 was released to our licensees today. For this update we’ve reconfigured a number of our basic bread-and-butter patches to be louder, clearer, and better able to reject feedback. We’ve also included an alternative layout for the patches that mixes up the bluesy, clean, and far-out patches for a different, thrilling kind of playing experience that changes the way you hear the harmonica. (Can you tell that this alternative layout is our favorite?)

The Zoom G3: we’re gonna keep it fresh

We’re committed to making sure that our patchsets give harmonica players the best sounds they can get, stuff that will let them approach any performance with the confidence that their setup will sound great no matter the style. We’re glad to offer this free update to subscribers who’ve licensed our patch set within the last 12 months (which at this point is all subscribers, because we began offering the set in late January 2015, i.e. less than one year ago). This version will be standard for licensees going forward (pending further updates, of course).

  1. Hi Richard,

    you probably suspected this was possible – have successfully programmed – manually – a fair whack of the G3 patches into the zoom MS50 G.

    20 so far that sound good – not all the amps and effects are in the 50G – but i have been told that since the discontinuation of the M100BT Zoom have made all of its effects available as a download update to import to the 50G.

    Th 50G also lacks pedal volume control, changing patches via footpedal but the stereo out is nice for your clean and Rev patches.

    Provided you don’t need to change patches much I think its worth it for its small footprint for jams and carry around.

  2. Thanks Mark, very interesting. I’m not surprised that the G3 patches translate well to the MS50G. If an amp model is reasonably accurate, it should produce similar results when the settings are applied across devices, even devices by different manufacturers. In other words, a Bassman amp model should sound like a Bassman.

    Regards, RH

  3. @Brian: to the best of my knowledge, the answer is no–G3 patches won’t work in the B3.
