The sonic frequencies generated by an electric bass are about 40 to 600Hz, but harmonics go all the way up to the ultrasonic frequency range. The Zoom B1x offers ultra-high resolution signal processing with 24-bit/96 kHz sampling, rivaling the best rackmount processors. The dynamic, wide-range bass signal retains its full impact resulting in clear, powerful tone that retains a distinct presence.
ZFX-3 — the new-generation 32-bit DSP
The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. Zoom elevates performance to the next level with its newly developed ZFX-3 chip. Its 32-bit architecture means outstanding performance and smooth, detailed signal processing. Fine nuances of fingering and touch come through without any deterioration.
13 different amp/stomp box modeling choices
Whether you want the massive sonic push of an all-tube amp, the sweet and mellow tone of a vintage model for melodic phrasing or the sound of a high-power wide-range modern amp, the choice is yours. There are seven bass amp settings that range from Rock and Pop to Fusion and Jazz. Plus, five unique distortion pedal sounds as well as a tube preamp for adding warmth are also available, letting you create exactly the bass sound that you want. Freely adjust the mix between drive sound and original sound to create deep distortion for real punch.
46 dedicated bass effects
Eight modules designed for bass guitar offer a total of 46 effects. A limiter/compressor lets you control peaks and ensure that levels are matched, while the three-band equalizer makes it easy to taylor your sound further. Auto wah is indispensable for playing that funky sound, and the octaver impressively enhances the low range. A defret effect gives you the special tone of a fretless bass. Detune produces a chorus effect with moderate amounts of modulation. Other studio-class effects include a long delay with settings to 5000 ms and a harmonized pitch shifter.
Expression pedal adds another dimension to your play
The B1X model comes with a built-in expression pedal and a PEDAL ASSIGN key that makes it a snap to select the function operated by the pedal.

Bought this pedal about a month ago. Some effects sound good,but some not so good and other effects sound too similar. On board drums and a variety of Amp models to choose from are pretty slick.For the price,it's a good deal.
I play in a Contemporary Christian band, where we play a variety of music with styles leaning toward smooth praise and worship and also some heavier rock (Third Day, Petra, Whitecross). This has several sounds that are very useful for "kicking it" and also for making it a bit more mellow. The processor is easy to learn how to operate and the buttons work well. The pedal can be used for many functions depending on the sound chosen, and I use several that allow me to control the volume for fade outs. I'm pleased with this and I would recommend it to anyone looking to vary their sound. One note, only 1/4 of these are really useable for playing in concert. But there are several that are really fun just to goof off with when I'm at bored at home. Hope this helps.
