Does the Zoom G1on Play Well with Others?

    Birthday coming up, looking around at cheap options people may reasonably purchase as gifts or similar, and I came across the Zoom G1on in browsing Amazon.

    Basically, I've got my dirt figured out to my satisfaction, and a delay pedal I like, so I'm mulling over the Zoom as a modulation box plus looper.

    When I had a Zoom G5, it was about the only looper I REALLY got along with because it quantized your recordings to match its drum machine; if this little box can do that PLUS give me some good modulation options? That would seem hugely useful.

    Does anybody use one of these small multi-effects in their rig in a similar way? Seems a viable option? $50 seems tempting enough to make me get over my distaste of preset-based multi-effects.



    Oh, and just as an aside, the Biyang Baby Boom compressor is still the ideal choice for a budget Dynacomp-style thing, yeah? Also considering one of those.

    I have one and keep it at work for lunch time jams.
    Once I figured out to leave the drum level alone and adjust the guitar to match I was good to go.
    Once I choose the drum pattern the pedal sets the loop and just overdub as you need

    I don't use the G1on, but I do use a G3 on my pedal board for all of my modulation and delay needs. It gets along fine with my overdrives, boost and compressor. I do need to run it on it's own power supply.
