The ZOOM GCE-3 is a compact USB audio interface that puts ZOOM Guitar Lab’s endless collection of guitar effects, amps and cabinets at your fingertips whenever and wherever inspiration strikes.

Your Grab-and-Go Studio
Small enough to fit in the pocket of your gig bag or backpack, this compact bus-powered USB interface is perfect for capturing your ideas in the studio or on the go.

Always In Sync
The GCE-3’s built-in DSP processor takes the processing load off your computer, letting you dial in and record professional-sounding guitar tones with reduced latency.

Plug In. Jam Out.
The GCE-3 records to your computer via standard guitar input and USB-C. Perfect for practicing, the AUX input lets you play external backing tracks directly to your headphones while only recording your guitar to your computer. And for monitoring, the GCE-3 offers dedicated headphone volume control.

Guitar Lab Software
With the ZOOM Guitar Lab app for Mac/Windows, you have access to the same library of amp models, artist effects and patches available for all of ZOOM’s G-series pedals. Emulate the G5n, G3Xn and even the B3n bass pedal, right on your computer. It’s a one-stop shop for effects collection and management.

Clipboard Function
For convenience, the Clipboard function memorizes up to four effects with custom parameters, so you can copy and paste them onto other patches.

Patches & Effects
The NEWS section keeps your sound fresh with a steady stream of new downloadable patches, and the EFFECTS tab houses an ever-growing list of classic and boutique effects.
