hey there y'all. i've been looking for a deal on an M9 to go back to it from the M5. a bud reminded me about the Zoom B3 and how impressed he was with some of the demo sounds he'd heard of it. it DOES look like a nice little unit, was wondering if some B3 owners could chime in and lemme know if i'm tripping in my impressions. also, if anybody's used both love to hear from chu. just read through the manual and these are the things that make me think the M9 works way better for me. i DO like the 6 patches on each page on the M9, kinda plan to only have 1 page and just use it as a 6-1 effect box. there's like 3 per page on the B3. but other than that........ 01) M9 - having all the effects parameters ALWAYS mapped to hardware knobs for each patch is smart. how annoying/perfectly designed is the soft interface B3ians? 02) M9 lets you control (usually all, mostly all except maybe one) all parameters of each patch with an expression pedal. and you can control more than one parameter at a time with the same exp pedal. looks like in the manual B3 has a specific list of common parameters between effects types that you can control. and only one at a time. and you need a separate external controller for tap tempo? 03) last thing's expression pedal....... they recommend their own pedal for the B3, i can't see the specs but i doubt it's identical to the weird one the M-Series uses. i have a Mission pedal built to have 2 always outs on, one for M-Series, one for regular pedals/an Expressionator. has anybody used an expression pedal like the VP JR that works with the M9 to control a B3? not bashing the B3 at all, i have zero experience with Zoom stuff. not fan-boi'ing the M9, it's just the first multi effect pedal i liked enough to spend time to get to know pretty thoroughly. thanks! appreciate any input!
