    got the G3x and there are some pretty impressive stock sounds. My original intent was to use it for Delay, Chorus, etc after my MXR 78 Distortion and my Boss Blues Driver.

    In the meanwhile, I'm just not getting how to switch patches while playing without stepping on "Hold for Patch" and then scrolling to the next patch I want. I'm sure there's a better way to go from patch to patch without all those steps. For Example, I'm on patch A1 and I'm clicking on/off for delay on "pedal" #3. Then I want to switch to another patch, say A3, for lead. What's the best way to do this?

    Also, is there a better way to scroll left or right without stepping on 2 buttons at once?

    No, I don't think theres a way do switch patches without stepping on the Hold for Patch button, not that I know of.If you have an effects loop you should run the G3 through that and run your dist , wah , overdrives, in front of the amp for better sound.I use my G3 for delays , chorus, and compression. I set my amp for clean and use a Bad Monkey for dirt and MXR Dist 3 set a little higher for leads.

    Thanks. I've seen this site. It's pretty amazing. I am crunched for time these days. For now I'm using it as is and getting used to it. Would be cool to mod a pedal. Never did that before.

    I owned the G3 for a few months last year, and I believe there is a different way to switch patches. I wish I could recall how I did it, perhaps it was included with the firmware update? Does your G3 allow you to have 6 FX at a time, or 3? The newest update allows you to have 6...

    You can switch patches by holding down TAP while pressing SCROLL in either direction.

    And, as I recall, depending on what mode you are in, you might be able to use the scroll function to switch between patches. I wish I could remember properly, I too had that question when I owned the unit and was able to find a different method.

    Perhaps ask over in the ZOOM forum?
