    I owned the previous version of this pedal and used to record via usb to my laptop, no problem - just changed some settings and that was it. Now i got this new B3n and though it's got a USB connection my laptop just can't detect it for recording. Any one else has this problem? Was it designed this way? if it was, now i need an audio interface. Any suggestions for a good one that doesn't cost a lot would be appreciated

    No, it can't record from the usb.

  3. Yes the USB on the B3n is only for software updating and patch organization.
    Hope this helps,

    Yes, Brent is right. Unlike the B3 which is Bus powered (you do not need an adapter to power, it is powered via usb) the B3N is only for software updating and patch organization.

    Got me a Tascam 2x2 audio interface to solve this problem. Couldn't be happier, now I'm getting the true bass sound my previous B3 could not deliver
