Overview

The Toneworks AX3000G Guitar Multi Effects Pedal packs over 72 models and effects sounds. These include a wide array of vintage modern amps, cabs, pedals, and pickups; a full slate of standard effects such as chorus, delay, and reverb; plus some brand new effects such as Filtron. You can use the Acoustic effect to transform the sound of your electric guitar into that of an electro-acoustic, or Pickup Modeling to transform the tonal character of your pickups without switching guitars.

The AX3000G also provides send/return jacks that make it easy for you to connect your favorite effect unit There's even a digital output (S/PDIF optical) jack so you can digitally record your playing.

A built-in expression pedal can be used in the standard ways for volume and wah, but also can be assigned to other parameters to provide an additional layer of realtime control and unusual effects. For example, if you assign the Manual parameter of a flanger to the pedal, you can use the pedal to control the sweep, creating a highly distinctive sound. By assigning the Toneworks pedal to control the delay time of the Echo Plus effect (which models the sound of a tape echo), you can use the pedal to control delay time. The AX3000G pedal can control the reverberation time of a reverb effect, the modulation speed of a chorus, flanger, or phaser, and much more.

The AX3000G also provides a dedicated control switch for effects, which is especially useful in live performance. For example, you can use it to switch an effect block (such as the pre-effect or insert effect) on and off, to set effect parameters such as tap tempo of a delay in real time, to switch the rotational speed of a rotary speaker effect, or to control the Expression Step Sequencer (ESS).

The Expression Step Sequencer or ESS is an especially innovative feature. It automatically controls effects parameters in a fixed or random way. It allows 8-step control and a choice of 7 possible variation types: forward, backward, alternate 1/2, random, one-shot forward, alternate 1/2 one-shot. Sequencer playback can be slowed or sped up with the expression pedal, and the overall result is sounds with complex movement.

Other features include a S/PDIF optical output, insert send/return, stereo aux input, and headphone output. A built-in auto chromatic tuner operates automatically when the Toneworks AX3000G is bypassed or muted. Simply by selecting Mute mode when you're on stage, you can tune without producing sound from your guitar amp. The note name is shown in the bank display, and the pedal indicator and name display provide an accurate pitch indication that is easy to see even on dimly lit stages.

This pedal is possibly the single most amazing multi effects processor I've ever used. The mod/pre/delay/reverb effects are all amazingly well done and 100% tweakable. The distortions are the only problem I have with it, they seem a bit redundant, but I have made some decent tones! The ESS can be used for so much and is a very nice feature, I also love being able to turn effects on and off with the control button. My favorite effect is the Filtron because it can give you a technoish sound if you use the synth pre-effect with it and tweak it around, very very cool stuff thats similar to expensive synthesizers! Overall, great product especially for its price!

Through a tiny rig, this thing is amazing. When I was running through a 15 Watt Marshall, it sounded great. However, I just got a 90 Watt 4x10 Fender Deville, and its tone has gotten much worse. The distortion is horrible and doesn't have enough bite for the amp. The flanger barely cuts through, and the rest of the effects could have work done because they are very vague, and are hard to pick out besides the wah. Its good for a small solid state amp, but through a big tube amp, it just doesn't cut it.

Maybe we should wait for a little better processor

By Stomp Boxes

from TX

To all Consumers, Now I know alot of people read reviews ,and write them. Many people complain about this unit not having strong enough distortion. If people buy processors for distortions thats a little odd to me. People don't complain about distortions and how it should have alot just buy stomp boxes. I got this unit for alot of chorus, flangers, and phasers. Not the best of unit for those effects however. I also am disappointed on how this unit has so many delays. I didn't buy the unit for delays. I will only use one delay and try to add other effects together to make it sound okay. Another odd feature to this is they require a software to add to it. But I was informed that the software does not add a little more array of effects. Then what I find is the point in downloading the software just to save those already made effects on the pedal board onto your computer. Im sorry but I was thinking there would be a software like digital keyboards to where you can buy added effects and make your keyboard more of a synthesizer. Thats what I was planning to make with my guitar. I will not download the software. Also I didn't get this unit for distortions. If you want alot of distortions it gives you plenty but it does not however give you space phasers and echo phasers. It just gives you a phaser a chorus and not many. It also gives you a flanger. I am kind of distrought. The sound quality is very clear though in this unit however. But as for purchasing I mean if your looking for not many effects go ahead. Though I don't think there is a processor floor board that has to many effects I can think of. Unless there in the making of one right now. I feel this unit is okay possibly a purchase for that young inspiring musician to come about. If you want to really get effects possibly purchase stomp boxes you can get all types of sounds out of them. And there are many brands to chose from. Just do whatever you feel like no choice is really a bad choice.

Better than a Boss ME-50 and Digitech

By IbanezGtr28

from Middlebury, CT

The korg Ax3000g offers so much more than it's competitors. First off is the massive amounts of effects, ranging from phaser, to various wahs, to repeating delays. Each effect on this unit is completly tweakable, and ever aspect one each effect could be set to your personal preference. The ESS is a cool feature and makes some really awesome arpegios. Everything on the unit is put together well and strongly. The amp models show to be extremly useful, especially when acting as a preamp. You can get any sound you could possibly want, it's incredible. This Korg really beats out it's competitors with the lowest price of the bunch.

AX3000G

By Daguitarpl8yr

from Pasadena, TX

I bought this modeling processor about 5 months ago and I was satisfied with what it could do. The sound is good and the effects too. The ESS Sequencer is good when u do all kinds of trills, but I dont use that at all. Its great for its price. I would prefer to buy the Boss GT8 because it has more options. But if you are in a tight budget, like me, I recommend buying this processor.

Good pedal.......;

By its me

from Texas

As you've all probably heard the distortion is weak, and it is. I've owned one for about 1 year, through my expirience the pedal is best for its modulation effects, reverb, and delays, the acoustic simulator is good too. Never found a use for the ESS feature, although i did hear it on a cd once. The 96 programmable channels are more than enough for me, the 32 preset channels are really good. It's simple interface is more than easy use, a blind person could probly use it. The tunner on this is dead on accurate. The time between switching effects is annoying to me, its a bit long. The ONE thing that is calling me to sell it is that when it is set to bypass, it is not 100% bypassed, the sound/signal is degrad. This effects proccessor is among the best for its price. I would recommend it unless your going to be playing through abunch of amps

ax3000g review

By Jack

from Grand Rapids, MI

I have had the Korg AX3000G for a couple of months. I read the manual and the began to try progrmming a few channels to my preferences. The procedure was relitively easy to do and I am content with what I did. I will never use all of the 96 channels. However, for the price I paid for the rest of the features this has, extra channels that will not be used seems insignificant. I play this through a VOX valvetronics 50 watt amp that has a tube preamp. I am very satisfied with the sounds I can get with my Ibanez AF-85 and the Wolftone replacement pickups I have installed.

Yay.

By BungToad

from SC

This pedal owns. Its really good. I know thats pretty vague but thats all you can use to describe it. The only thing Im kinda down about is the amount of distortion effects and their lack of "UMPH". They're kinda weak. AND I own this pedal and it just broke the other day. I plugged it up and it just wouldnt come on anymore and it smelled funny. Luckily it has a warranty and Im gonna send it in to Korg for fixing. But if you get this pedal and it continues to work, you'll love it.

get this one

By chad

from knoxville tennessee

ignore negative reviews. just because this pedal does not cost a arm and a leg, don't think its not the greatest. for any rock, heavy metal, blues, or just about any thing. this thing has it all. for the price tag you CANT beat this pedal. i have tried lots of pedals around this price range to even more expensive boss, digitech, and line 6 pedals, and this one is THE ONE. GET IT!

ax300g

By telepicker

from Detroit Mi

When I purchased this unit I also looked at the Boss gt-8 while it had more features it sounded to digital to me,I also checked out the POD live pedel and that also sounded a bit sterile. The amps modeled in this unit are very natural sounding. Programing is also very easy, you be up and running from day 1. They only other modeling pedel I realy like was the VOX, at almost twice the price though. All in all very very happy with the KORG AX3000G.

AX3000G

By Steve

from NJ

I needed a floor unit for jamming and recording when I couldn't lug my setup around. I went out looking for a unit where I could control everything, assign any parameter to the exp. pedal, versatility, well lit, durable, and last but not least, sound good. The AX3000G was a perfect match. I tried every multi-effects unit from Boss, Digitech, Line6, Korg, and Vox. The AX3000G is so versatile, mix and match amps and cabs and get unlimited results. I'm not much of an effects user, but the AX3000G has some great sounding effects, I really like the Filtron effect, allows me to almost nail the same effect Vai used for 'Glorious'. With my main setup, I use the AX3000G for delay, reverb, and effects (mainly chorus). I really like being able to have full control over every parameter and assign anything to the exp. pedal and control button for on/off or tap tempo. The AX3000G is packed with features, I've had it for about a year and I'm still finding new features. The amp and cab simulations are actually pretty impressive, when I jam with friends and can't bring my setup I plug into the PA. Pretty light for its size, too.
