Intuitive Modeling Software for Guitar and Bass:
ZFX Packages give guitarists and bassists the ability to create the ultimate tone solutions with an intuitive software/hardware setup. Incredibly easy and fun to use, ZFX combines sophisticated amp modeling software with a USB audio interface. Faithfully capturing the distinct tone of legendary amps, cabinets and effects, ZFX puts an impressive library a mere mouse-click away. With 12 classic guitar amps, 5 amazing bass amps, 16 cabinets, 4 types of recording mics and 41 stompbox effects, the tone possibilities are virtually limitless. And with drag-and-drop simplicity, you can choose any combination of amplifier, cabinet and effects while positioning the mic in the most appropriate location for your specific audio desires.
Zoom's newly developed modeling algorithms use precise analysis of impulse response and frequency response to perfectly emulate the sonic characteristics of tubes and transistors found on classic amps. And we've duplicated all the internal circuit processes as well, so you can tweak your tone in exactly the same way as the knobs and switches on the actual amp. For even more tone control, you can move the accurately modeled condenser and dynamic mics to any position: close miking for a grittier sound, or off-cabinet miking for more room ambience.
12 guitar amplifiers made famous throughout 50 years of rock history.
5 bass amplifiers for classic bass tones.
16 cabinets to be used in any combination you need.
4 professional recording mic models found in every studio microphone locker.
41 stompbox effects to add depth and color to your sound.
With its intuitive user interface, we've made ZFX easy to setup and change while you play. Changing amp settings, cabinet layout, mic position and rearranging the stompbox effects is simple with our unique drag-and-drop operation. So you can alter your setup quickly and get immediate results, unleashing your creativity in ways that were previously unimaginable.
Begin with its easy-to-read catalog view of all the models available and double-click to bring up detailed descriptions to find just the right component for your desired tone. Adding or changing amps is easy via drag and drop.
More than 300 tone presets are included, offering a wealth of amp, cabinet, mic and effects setting combinations. Choose from vintage rock tones, country, jazz and blues to ultra modern or heavy metal setups with a double-click of your mouse. And we've also pre-programmed 50 specific artist sounds from rock, jazz, blues and heavy metal.
With ZFX, you have complete control over the mic position within the recording booth. Whether you want a tight, gritty sound from the center of the speaker cone, a smooth sound from the edge of the cone or more room ambiance by pulling the mic away from the cabinet, you can get the setting you want.
Click and drag your mouse to tweak the switches and knobs on each stompbox. Zoom in on an effect by double-clicking on it. By inserting tools such as a splitter or mixer, you can place multiple amps for even more flexible routing.
The built-in chromatic tuner lets you quickly tune at any time. Special tunings are on-board and you can drop tune by a semitone or two as well.
C5.1t: The Audio Interface for Real-time Control:
The C5.1t is a USB audio interface specifically designed for the needs of guitarists. With a cool, effects console design, the C5.1t lets you control preset parameters and effects with your foot, freeing your hands to play. Connect guitars, basses, vocal mics or keyboards and get high quality, 24-bit/48 kHz recording resolution. And since it's USB bus powered, an external power supply is not necessary.
The C5.1t USB audio interface has an expression pedal and five function switches. The expression pedal not only handles regular effect control functions such as volume, wah or pitch shift, it can also be used to adjust modulation rate or reverb mix level in real time. The five assignable switches can be used to turn effects on/off, toggle patches, perform tap tempo input, activate bypass mode and more.
The Hi-Z input section features a 12AX7 tube, the classic guitar preamp tube. Blending the clarity of solid-state sound with the natural compression and saturation of a vacuum tube creates a warm, organic tone that only comes from ZFX interfaces. Two balanced XLR inputs with 48V phantom power are on-board for use with condenser microphones to record vocals or acoustic instruments.
Cubase LE 4 is a powerful music production system that can handle recording, editing, and mixing tasks both for audio and for MIDI. It incorporates the same audio engine as the multi-award winning, higher-level version Cubase 4, and is ideal as an entry into computer-based music production. VST plug-in support means that you can get started right away, creating amazing tones to record your guitar or bass using ZFX.
