Zoom B3 Bass Amp and FX Simulator: Zoom Put their Foot Down
The Zoom B3
The all new Zoom B3 is a bass effects and amps simulator, combining the ease of a stompbox pedalboard with the power of a multi-effects processor and USB interface.
With the Zoom B3 you have complete control of individual effects, with the option of utilizing up to three stompbox and amp effects simultaneously. The B3 features 3 simple control knobs for each of the three large LCD displays, which correspond to their relevant footswitches.
Zoom have given the B3 an incredibly intuitive design, making it easy for you to create, save and rearrange your effects chain. With easy navigation in both live and studio settings, and the ability to operate as a USB interface, the Zoom B3 is destined to be every bassist’s modern day hero.
This simulator offers a diverse range of stompbox FX with high quality stereo tube presets and bass synths and patches designed by four of the world’s most respected bassists.
The Zoom B3 allows you to store up to 100 of your original creations with 40 seconds of phrase recording and overdubbing. In addition to having a DI connection for crystal clear signals, the Zoom B3 comes together with Steinberg’s Sequel LE recording software and Edit & Share software.
Free Edit&Share software for Mac/PC
Zoom’s Edit&Share software, which is available as a free download, allows you to create, edit and save your personalized amp and effect settings on your computer. Use its “radar charts” to access visual representations of each preset’s tone characteristics, the “amp/effect” sorting feature to easily locate your sounds and drag-and-drop options to rearrange patches for editing. With Edit&Share, you can download the latest patches online, as well as share your patches with others.
A stompbox pedal with the power of a multi-effects pedal and USB interface for a bass guitar, now that’s what you call ‘the whole package’.
