Hands-on USB Guitar Interface with Onboard DSP

The Zoom GCE-3 brings powerful Guitar Lab modeling technology to a desk-friendly audio interface. Think of this unit as a gateway between the Guitar Lab app and your DAW. Plug in your instrument, connect to your Mac/Windows machine, and quickly access volumes of amp, cab, and stomp emulation from Zoom’s flagship G5n (guitar) and B3n (bass) processors, just ripe for the recording. Its capable onboard DSP takes the workload off your laptop for lag-free performance. On the recording side, a free copy of Cubase LE will have you creating multitrack masterpieces in no time. For practice, an 1/8" headphone output and 1/8" aux input for phones and music players makes the Zoom GCE-3 Guitar Lab Circuit Emulator  a fun option for woodshedding and jamming.

Access sounds from Zoom’s flagship floor units

Instant access to Zoom’s class-leading amp, cab, and pedal models — those from the G5n, G3Xn, B3n, and more — make the GCE-3 an invaluable practice and recording tool. You can access other users’ and artists’ presets easily via the Guitar Lab app. What the G- and B-series multi-FX units have done for live performance, the GCE-3 does for recording.

A powerful USB audio interface

The Zoom GCE-3 and a laptop are you all you need to create modern multitrack masterpieces. A stable USB 2.0 connection, paired with the interface’s onboard DSP, yields very little lag and bottlenecking.
