The Zoom B6 bass multi-effects processor brings you four custom-crafted DI models and three decades’ worth of modulations, drives, delays, and reverbs, in a backpack-friendly floor unit. Amps, stomps, cabs, loops, backing tracks — with the B6, everything you need for a real-world gig setting is right at your feet. There’s plenty of DSP on tap, enabling you to chain up to six effects along with amplifier emulation. The B6’s 36 preloaded cab IRs are spot on, while 130 user IR slots accommodate your third-party impulse responses. Navigating the B6 is a breeze, thanks to its customizable workflow and smartphone-class 4.3-inch touchscreen. Cycling Modes via the selector switch reassigns each of the four lower switches and their labels to your new workflow. This makes it extremely easy to bounce between looper, user presets, and pedalboard modes. Other player-essential features you’ll find in the Zoom B6 include a 45-second looper (expandable via optional SD card), 68 built-in rhythm patterns for solo performances, effects loops for peerless stomp integration, and an integrated 2-in/2-out USB audio interface for direct recording straight into your DAW. And to top it all off, this super flexible processor provides an A/B switcher that allows easy switching of basses on stage.
Because their products are built by musicians, Zoom understands the importance of crafting the right bass tone with DIs – that’s why they gave you four to choose from! Walk that bass through emulations of two tube and two solid state DI’s to see what low-end vibe Zoom’s B6 can bring to your stage or studio. Weave through thick lows, sharp tones, distortion, and compression to choose a DI character that perfectly suits your style. Not to mention, their new analog circuitry and 88.2kHz FX processor in conjunction with the DI’s will take your low-end frequencies to the moon and back.
The B6 adds seven newly designed custom-crafted amp and preampmodels to the catalog of simulations Zoom is famous for — putting exciting, ear-tickling sonic textures within your reach at the tap of a button. Zoom designed these models to evoke the best tonal qualities of the greatestamplifiers in history, then combined them to give you a variety of tonal palettes to experiment with.
The B6 is jam-packed with classic Zoom effects like dynamics, modulation, delays, reverbs, and more — the same killer sounds we’ve enjoyed for decades. And for the B6, Zoom added originally designed effects meant to take your bass’s sound to the next level of sonic distortion and electric excellence.
The B6 is jam-packed with 12 cabinet emulations to complement its amp and preamp models, along with 36 preloaded impulse responses that were captured by placing the microphone in three different positions. This ensures that you have a wide arsenal of cabinets to choose from. A lot of bassists have their own third-party IRs — after all, we’re tone heads! But that’s not a problem with the B6. Thanks to its 130 user IR slots, you’re covered.
No matter how complex your effects chains are, the Zoom B6’s easy-to-use, application-driven technology makes navigating them a breeze. A 4.3-inch color touchscreen enables you to drag, drop, and swipe your way to new sounds. If you can use a smartphone, you can navigate the B6.
The B6 packs a myriad of player-essential features. Add layers to your solo performances with a 45-second looper (expandable via optional SD card). Choose your groove from 68 built-in rhythm patterns that run the full gamut of genres and time signatures. Integrate your stompboxes and external effects using the rear effects loops. You can also use the B6 as a full-blown 2-in/2-out USB 2.0 audio interface, empowering you to record directly to your Mac or PC.
