Nivag666's review"Idiot proof FX utility"

Zoom 1201
Certainly not high-end, and lacking in deep editing capability or anything much in the way of multi-FX, the unassuming 1201 still became something of a minor cult item amongst late-1990s home studio types. Mainly I suppose because of the broad array of FX on offer, including oddities like ring-modulation, vocoding, and pitch-delay. Of course there are also the basic modulation offerings, including some dual and parallel patches, and a generous bank of 121 reverbs. The editing is all on the front panel, and while extremely limited, the ease of access means making changes is the simplest of exercises. An all-rounder that any studio denizen would find some use for.

Zoom 1201
A multi-effect unit 19 "includes the classic reverbs and delays of more than special effects (flanger etc ...)
it works in stereo and enter into it in asymmetrical jack
it is not twelve o'clock
It has 3 banks of 11 effects with 11 variations chaqun (everyone should find something)


It is very easy to use no complicated settings you turn the knobs until you find the


One of the default zoom c breath quite noticeable but hey .....
I use both c and for delay flangers and auto filter
I particularly like this last effect (sort of whawha) behind a loop it sounds terrible


It's been three years since I use it is very simple very cheap (1000f at the time)
very very good value for price is my first multi-effect and the price is great ...
