I bought a Zoom G2.1u pedal some time ago, that came with LE4. I’ve been using both since then, and everything works fine. Well, kinda. I used the Zoom G Series Asio driver that came with it, which only lets me set the pedal as both input and output. But recently, I’ve started using my pedal pretty much only as a USB interface to plug my guitar into my PC, aka I prefer using VSTs for my effects, not my pedal. The problem is that when I use the Zoom driver, like I said, I have to use my pedal as output so if I record in clean sound, and apply distortion with a VST, even if I turn on monitoring, I hear both the processed sound and raw clean sound at the same time, which is very disturbing. So what I would like to do would be to set my pedal as input, and my PC speakers as output (I wish to stress that point: plugging my speakers into the output of my pedal is not the solution to my problem).
I’ve tried using ASIO4ALL drivers, it seems to work fine, I can select it in Device Setup (my Cubase is in French, but I think that’s what it’s called in English). But in VST Connection, Input tab, Device Port column, there’s only ‘not connected’ and ‘in at front panel’ (which I supposed is the mic) available, can’t find my pedal. So I went back to Device Setup, and clicked on the Control Panel. There, it said ‘WDM device list’, with my sound card and ‘Zoom G series audio’. Had no idea what that was, but selected it, and lo and behold, I can now use my pedal as input, but 1) the recorded sound is awful, and 2) I still can only use my pedal as output, no sound coming out of my speakers.
One thing to add: in a review of the pedal I have, the reviewer said that he recommended to use ASIO4ALL instead of the Zoom ones, which I took to mean ‘I use ASIO4ALL (or know its possible)’.
Any help would be appreciated, I’m lost on this one and don’t know what I’m doing.
