Cut down the size of your pedalboard by adding an MS-50G. It offers 100 great-sounding ways to craft the perfect guitar tone. For ease of use, these are organized into the following categories:
Dynamics / Filter Shape and control your sound with these 12 compressors, equalizers, and filters, plus Zoom's Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm, designed to remove noise during pauses while still maintaining your instrument's natural tone. Other options here include automatic Slow Attack, AutoWah, and Cry, as well as emulations of the MXR Dyna Comp, Moog MF-101, and Z. Vex Seek-Wah.
Overdrive / Distortion The MS-50G's dozen boosters, overdrives, and fuzz tones include simulations of the BOSS OD-1, DS-1, and Metal Zone, as well as the Ibanez TS808, MXR Distortion+, Matchless Hot Box, Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, and Pro Co Rat. Our ExtremeDS effect offers the most powerful gain of any distortion effect in the world, and there's even a simulator that allows your electric guitar to sound like an acoustic.
Amp The 8 amp models provided here include emulations of classic and contemporary tube and solid-state amplifiers from manufacturers like Fender, Marshall, Vox, Two Rock, Diezel, and ENGL, each with its own distinct cabinet modeling that can be used to further alter the tonal quality. What's more, you can pair any amp model to any cabinet model for unusual, and often striking effects. The MS-50G also provides you with the ability to match the output of a given amp/cabinet model to the actual setup you’re playing through (options include Line, Combo Front, Stack Front, Combo Power Amp, and Stock Power Amp).
Modulation / Special effects You'll find 13 different modulation and special effects here, all specially crafted for guitar. These include phasing, flanging, chorusing, tremolo, vibrato, detuning, octave dividing, and pitch shifting—even an intelligent harmonizer that plays along in key. Vintage sounds include simulations of the Boss CH-1 Super Chorus and ADA flanger.
Delay / Reverb The MS-50G's cutting-edge DSP microchip performs 32-bit floating-point calculations, giving it the ability to create sophisticated studio-quality effects such as the 10 rich, dense reverbs and realistic spatial simulations found here. These allow you to place your guitar in natural-sounding spaces such as rooms and halls or to add delays of up to 4 seconds. Also included are reverb plates and springs and a tape delay simulator, as well as reverse, modulated, and self-oscillating delays.
