Re: Zoom G2
You are right, gain ranges from 100 in increments of 2. I just wanted to make an example, but my example does not fit for tweaking gain. Okay, but lets stay at gain: on my G2, when I turn that know that is called "gain" (though it has many different functions) sometimes jumps like this: 42...44...48...50...52...56... Do know what I mean now?
It really does not happen that often. I believe it happens more often when the range is bigger. Just like when tweaking gain. As you said, the range is 0-100. At some other functions, the know only has a range from 1-10.
Btw, in the meantime I imagine myself that the knob on the right shows the same issue. So maybe it is normal. As I said, this is not a big issue as you donīt tweak that know a 100 times a day once you have found and safed the desired sounds. Maybe I will call the distributor on Monday and ask them about that thing...
Oh, and what I forgot to say: those jumps occur when you turn it slowly! Maybe the best way to try is with drum machine. When it is turned on, you can select the different rhythms with that knob. Maybe because the G2 has to "work" quite a lot when using the drum machine... Itīs quite hard to explain my problem as my English is not that good, but I hope it can be understood...
And beyblade, I agree with you when it comes to comparing the G2 to other devices in that price-region. Besides the V-Amp I also tried such a little box from Korg and another one, but canīt remember correlctly. IMO, the G2 sound much better and much cleaner than the other devices I have tested. And the offered Effects are impressive for such a price! In the beginning I found it a bit hard to do all those different setting as there are only a few knobs with many different functions. So reading the manual is good at some points. And: the G2 has a little drum computer, a metronome and a tuner in it. All you need for practice ;-)
