Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

Hi!!
What do you guys think about the Zoom G92tt multi-effects ?
Some of you probably have it, What about the construction, Is ti road proof??? The sounds of the dual 12ax7 tubes. Is it worth it???
Do you have great patches?? I own a Digitech rp 250 and i'm thinking of buying this unit as a replacement for stage use of the Rp250!!

Is there a site for patches on the net like the Digitech sound community??

Thanks

Re: Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

I just recently got one (2 weeks ago), and Im very impressed with it so far. There is only a few site that have extra patches which are great. Once you get the hang of how it works and the setup you will not be disappointed.

I am running this thru a Mesa tube power amp, I have not tried to run it thru my Marshall Lead Combo (all solid state) to see if I like it that way.

It seems to be build pretty well, but I have read some issues with the pedals, but it has not happened to me yet.

One thing I do not like is the 2 tubes (Accelerator & Boost) are only set on the board and do not change based on patches, but I think I found my standard sweet spot.

Also there is a PC library, but you have to us MIDI, and only does full dumps, not single updates.

hope this helps a bit

Guys, remember you can change all your settings and save them via this much simpler way (for me anyway, as I can't stand those little screens!)

Are you able to do a live change with the Pedal & PC software? I only been able to do dumps - so im only can modify the pedal on the fly not use the software to.

You can save and adjust everything in realtime from the "effects rack" screen.

Sounds like you're having problems?

Ok, Yea I had a issue with Midi Drivers, which I just corrected this weekend when I was messing with recording and my Keyboard. I had another M-Audio driver for a Midi Controller install, and I think it conflicting with other stuff I had installed. I will test again tonight as removed the other Midi Drivers and only have my correct drivers for my sound card & midi devises now

Re: Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

I've got a Zoom G7.1ut, but it should translate fairly similarly. I love the JCM 800 amp sim, crank it and add some compression and boost, and it really rips. Make sure you play with that sim if you like the Marshall sound when you get your Zoom.

Re: Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

yeah the G9 2tt is a cool unit, a bit complicated for my liking and probably too many options but i have made some very nice sound set ups with it. The unit is sturdy and is a solid piece of kit made from metal (unlike the old old zoom boards).

Only downside is the software, i downloaded the official one so I can edit patches via pc, but the software i downloaded wont install, i just get an error pop up message when i try to run it. (Using XP SP2).

So i have to do everything manually

Re: Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

It's built like a tank. The sound quality is excellent... The factory patches aren't that great, but the unit is easy to edit, so you should have some good tones in no time.

Do you have the .Net Framework installed on your PC? It needs it to run.

Re: Zoom G9 2tt multi-effects

congratulations on the purchase, hope it inspires you with great sounds.

The additional patches are crappy, just like the ones on the unit when shipped. It's not worth it.
