    Korg's REMS modeling technology and extensive on-the-floor control.

    The Toneworks AX3000G Guitar Multi Effects Pedal packs over 72 models and effects sounds. These include a wide array of vintage modern amps, cabs, pedals, and pickups; a full slate of standard effects such as chorus, delay, and reverb; plus some brand new effects such as Filtron. You can use the Acoustic effect to transform the sound of your electric guitar into that of an electro-acoustic, or Pickup Modeling to transform the tonal character of your pickups without switching guitars.

    The AX3000G also provides send/return jacks that make it easy for you to connect your favorite effect unit There's even a digital output (S/PDIF optical) jack so you can digitally record your playing.

    A built-in expression pedal can be used in the standard ways for volume and wah, but also can be assigned to other parameters to provide an additional layer of realtime control and unusual effects. For example, if you assign the Manual parameter of a flanger to the pedal, you can use the pedal to control the sweep, creating a highly distinctive sound. By assigning the Toneworks pedal to control the delay time of the Echo Plus effect (which models the sound of a tape echo), you can use the pedal to control delay time. The AX3000G pedal can control the reverberation time of a reverb effect, the modulation speed of a chorus, flanger, or phaser, and much more.

    The AX3000G also provides a dedicated control switch for effects, which is especially useful in live performance. For example, you can use it to switch an effect block (such as the pre-effect or insert effect) on and off, to set effect parameters such as tap tempo of a delay in real time, to switch the rotational speed of a rotary speaker effect, or to control the Expression Step Sequencer (ESS).

    The Expression Step Sequencer or ESS is an especially innovative feature. It automatically controls effects parameters in a fixed or random way. It allows 8-step control and a choice of 7 possible variation types: forward, backward, alternate 1/2, random, one-shot forward, alternate 1/2 one-shot. Sequencer playback can be slowed or sped up with the expression pedal, and the overall result is sounds with complex movement.

    Other features include a S/PDIF optical output, insert send/return, stereo aux input, and headphone output. A built-in auto chromatic tuner operates automatically when the Toneworks AX3000G is bypassed or muted. Simply by selecting Mute mode when you're on stage, you can tune without producing sound from your guitar amp. The note name is shown in the bank display, and the pedal indicator and name display provide an accurate pitch indication that is easy to see even on dimly lit stages.

    This is a GREAT pedal, but as long time musician, I reluctantly I am returning this unit. I owned a Korg AX1500 for many years and it got stolen, and I miss it dearly. I bought the AX3000 thinking it could only be better, but have been disappointed.Please don't take me wrong, this is a GREAT pedal, and so full of feature's that you would be lucky to find all the sounds this thing can produce in your life time !!, but in comparison to the AX1500, it falls short.My number one compliant is the arrangement of power pack input, and the guitar input. They are side, by, side, and the guitar cord is always tangled with the power source, no matter what you do. The result is a noticeable hum during recording no matter how shielded you guitar cord is, although "live" it is barely noticeable.The other is that the "tweak" knobs, where you can manually adjust your settings, are too close to the foot switches, and because they are plastic shafted, I can for see breaking one off ( or more) by a careless foot during a gig.Other than that, this is probably one of the most versatile pedals, and best sounding that you could buy at this price. The sounds are awesome, the construction is solid, the interface is easy to learn.One of the major feature I really like about this unit, is the LED's along side of the expression pedal, that tell you instantly where the expression pedal is in the mix, and also used for tuning the guitar. Super easy to see on stage.I would recommend this pedal to anyone,but this model is just not for me. I have been spoiled by the Korg AX1500, and much like my long lost 1968 Vox wah-wah, neither are made any longer.

    Let me first state that I am a big fan of all things Korg. In fact, I was just about to give a tribute to Korg on my podcast--until I bought the AX3000G. So it is with great sadness that I must write a bad review of a Korg product.I couldn't decide between this pedal and the Digitech GNX3. The GNX3 seemed to have a lot more features (recorder, looping, drum machine) for the same price. Yet I was drawn to the AX3000G by my loyalty to Korg, and especially by the ESS feature. Unfortunately, the AX3000G floor model at the store wouldn't power up, so I couldn't test it. So I bought both the Korg and the Digitech and put them head-to-head at home.There was literally no comparison. The Digitech performed fabulously in every way, and I was horrified by almost everything with the Korg. The only thing about the Korg I liked better was it's appearance, the expression pedal action, and the LED indicators showing the expression pedal position. Everything else was really bad news.The AX3000G has no On/Off switch. It turns on when you plug it in with the included power supply, which is not nearly as rugged as the pedal itself. It has no USB or XLR in/out, although it does have an S/PDIF out (I've never seen anyone actually use S/PDIF on any device, however). The headphone jack is 1/8". The pedal is beautiful when it's powered, with lots of color and lights. The manual is adequate, but not as thorough as the Digitech manual. But the sound was simply aweful. Not one preset interested me in the slightest, and there is quite a delay when you switch presets. Worse, I think the model I had again didn't work properly, because the sound kept cutting in and out while I played (it wasn't my guitar or cord--it worked fine with the Digitech). Worst of all, the very first time I turned the Modulation knob, a loud *pop* almost broke my eardrum, and an extremely loud static filled my headphones. I had to remove the power plug to stop it.On the second try, the knobs worked (with a noticeable *click* as you turned them), but I still couldn't dial in a single sound that I liked. I'm not talking about finding the "right" tone. I'm talking about the sound being just plain annoying. The ESS feature is actually pretty neat. It more or less adds an arpreggiator to your guitar. But that is not tone; it's a special effect. The vast majority of sounds I heard can only be described as cacophony. I spent about an hour with this pedal and the manual, mostly in a desperate attempt to salvage *any* use out of it. I couldn't find any. It went back to the store, and I now have my first Digitech product, which I'm very happy with.For what it's worth, if this pedal worked properly, I would really like to have one for its ESS/special effects potential. To me, the AX3000G is to guitar effects pedals what the Korg Electribe series is synthesizers--a useful novelty to add to your rig (when it works), but not a main board. But I would never pay the same price at the GNX3 for this pedal, even if it worked properly. It just doesn't have enough features to compete at the same price.Pros: Beautiful appearance, exceptionally smooth expression pedal action, expression pedal LEDs, rugged metal box, ESS has a lot of potential.Cons: Quality/reliability issues on both units tested, no internal recording function, no built-in drum machine, poor computer connectivity, fragile power supply, 1/8 inch headphone jack, Korg website doesn't have a community to share presets, etc.

    Simply Perfect... Almost!

    By Toneworksforme

    from Easley, SC

    First, let me just say that I have owned this processor for a couple of months now and I am blown away! This thing does everything I need it to and then some! I have been playing for 19 years and have finally found something that is simple, portable, toneful and is built to take abuse! The tones are amazing! I play straight through a PA system so I have NO STAGE CLUTTER! What a GOD Send! I love the red LED Display (Makes it so easy to see)! I also love the ease of use. Honestly, if you can't figure this processor out in just a few minutes, well...you get the point! The only thing I wish were different is that there is no editing this processor via USB! Not a huge deal, it just would have been nice. But hey, for the price, don't complain too much! Overall, I feel this was the best gear purchasing decision I have ever made! It chimes like a bell when I need it to, or it will rip off your face if I want it to. Simply AWESOME!

    Great Modeller

    I am an active musician and have been playing for about 8 years now. I have gone through many different effects pedals and processors, and I have to say that this is the best purchase that I have ever made! The style of music that I write is so fine-tuned that there are a few features that I can't quite pinpoint 100%, but this pedal does what I used to have to utilize so many pedals throughout my playing and alternate tuning on amps and stacks all within one unit that is easy to navigate and select. Now I just keep my tune settings and a quick tap or two on the pedal and I am ready to go for my next effect or song. Not only do the features provide for a variety of sounds, it is offered at, I must say, an OUTSTANDING price! Normally at this price I might have only two or three pedals at my disposal. It you are an active musician, or even a hobbyist, I would suggest giving one a try as soon as possible.

    great pedal

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I've had this for a good couple of months now, I've had no problems w/ it at all. Probably my favorite feature is the reverbs, 12 very good sounding reverbs. All the effects are very strong, especially the chorus. Many different overdrives and cab types and full EQ making sure you can get any sound your looking for. I honestly have no complaints about it at all. It has a couple more features than the vox version. The synth sounds are great, despite they cut off and sometimes slow tracking, it was very easy to use and didn't take very long to master. The noise suppressor silents the entire amp, the sound quality is amazing and I would defently recommend this to any serous musician.

    Really good processor

    By little_man122

    from Saipan, MP

    I got this processor just a week ago. I never expected much from this but wow, the sounds are awesome. The distortion and overdrive is great. They have a rich, clean tone. Also the machine is very easy to use. Just reading the manual once, you'll get everything. Using a multi effect never became easier. They have really cool effects like drone and filtron. The ESS is realy fun to play around with. The ESS can really make you sound like a great guitarists! The quality of this product looks superb. Everything is metal except the knobs but it looks really durable. The look of the effector is great. My friends are all jealous of it. This is great for bands such as Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold , Atreyu, or other hardcore bands. I compared this procuct with BOSS ME-50 but this product surpasses it. Get this multi effect today! Great for the price!

    Brilliant processor!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I bought the 3000g after much contemplation and I'm completely satisfied with my purchase. I would even put it above BOSS by way of ease of use and user-friendliness. Getting a tone out of this pedal is extremely simple, although if you're a person with a ear for detail, spend some time with it and you will not be disappointed. I've managed to get some really raw and thick tones out of this pedal and not once has it failed me. Brilliant features although I still feel that the spacey effects are not really that important. Could use a metronome and a harmonizer effect. Of course, the effects like the ESS need not be used. I would use it like an intro or for a completely new sound because no other processor has a function like this. Overall, brilliant for gigging and semi-professional use!

    Dreadful!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Quite simply, this thing is dreadful. I gigged with it for about 6 months and it did nothing but rob my amp of its true tone. Do yourself a favour, lash out a little and get the PODXT Live.

    Ok.....if you want someting to mess with.

    This procssor first seems super amazing when you buy it. It has a bunch of features, which are kinda cool. But when you want to get the sounds you really want. It doesn't quite get them. Not the easiest to dial in. I think that just buy some stomp pedals, they sound a lot clearer and aren't so digitally. If you just want something to play with for fun, then this is for you. But if you want a good clear and quality sound I wouldn't recomend buying it.
