I was looking for my zt lunchbox one minimachin looké same, bingo. As against this issue is much more ergonomic galley!

No headphone output (master volume not seen either) or pedal input expression, but normal two jack outputs, great for the stereo capabilities of the beast.

The screen is lit more than me, and you can name the presets (which I think should be mandatory).
Two AA batteries are enough to turn the machine, one perf.
Usb socket that I never serve, old school muzikos ...

Weighs slab size bebert pedal, but metal.

Around the footswitch are 4 switches for pagination in effect and blocks the effects of said blocks.
Of course a lot of hidden features / multi assignable etc..
The value is the inverse of fender products, sidereal here.

UTILIZATION

Well, I took some time to capture the basic navigation (select a preset, for example) but what effect is intuitive, there are several blocks available type comp / distortion / delay / reverb, perhaps more can be less (more reverb hd food processor).
What I love is that thing remembers effects not activated in a preset, and the block to put on-off selected. So when the patch is called the footswitch is already ready to engage / disengage the delay, for example, it saves time / lag / place and known or is. Practice.

There is a staggering amount of effects, sounds and more. I am intrigued by some as the line selector block, not yet had the time.

It's smarter than it seems in fact, and you can assign the footswitch to turn a series of patches that selects very easily.
The three potentiometers are notched endless, and you can press it. This is great.

SOUND QUALITY

Until two weeks used in home studio headphones, and a week in a local VOX AC15 (without channel equalization).
The headphone signal to noise ratio is very good, it's clean without being dry. The stereo is falling, although the wide pong delays example, and gives seasick on the chorus or panners.
The amp models are juicy, a hair metal anyway, but too many parameters affect the ease of use.

The vox to good volume, zoom functions as a pedal board (compressor, od / dist, delay, reverb) without amp modeling or EQ, just to stay on board master.
It's fantastic sound quality unimaginable a few years earlier and I mean not even the price. I stay with ds1 as distortion and overdrive as od + and the result is warm and natural. I must say that the vox cheating disagree, but the fact that it has no equalizer speaks volumes about the quality coming out of ms50g ...

Brief a treat, and I do not need 150 sounds like ball-top50 then ...

OVERALL OPINION

Horrifying at baseline (disable autosave, you will live older) but once it got it's great, and naming presets can make several sets (one for vox, one for zt, one for the studio etc.) without mixing brushes.

I repeat for the lunchbox just made presets for vox, adding a block equalizer saw the size of the zt ...
So the investment of time of departure will quickly be amortized as want?

And if it is via computer is even more obvious hack.

Do not throw more short, if it's too easy as there is direct access g3 I think, and I feel that preparing a zoom shot, judging by the new A3, so expect maybe a bit !
In fact I also took G2Nu for its ease of operation and superior headphone, and I have the impression that the sound quality is not as good as ms50g is more clutter in whole.
