I just picked up a Zoom B3 at the recommendation of my store guy as I was looking for a new tuner and compressor, and it was cheaper than the both of them. So far I love it, but I have a few noob questions that I haven't found answers to on the forum or zoom's web page. First off, it seems that it is constantly using a patch. If I exit the patch menu and play with the pedals, I seem to screw up whatever patch it was previously on. For example, if I pick a patch, exit out of it and turn a pedal off, the next time I select that patch it will still have the pedal off. I have to exit the patch menu, and turn it back on. It also seems to save over the patch if I change a pedal. Is there any way to run it without having patches on so I can experiment without mucking the presets up? I was thinking of just making a "blank" patch and using that, but there has to be an easier way. Is there a quick bypass for the unit if I want to run a clean signal from the patch menu? It would be nice to kill the effects when I'm not playing at that exact moment, without having to exit the menu and turn each pedal individually off. I do have a an expression pedal to control volume but I was hoping to jump in and out of practicing clean and then adding effects. I'm not looking to mute my rig. So far I really like the unit, and when compared to the price of 3 basic pedals it wins hands down. I am having a lot of fun figuring it out. If there are any other tips and tricks a new user should know, I'd love to hear them!
