    Hello,

    I am Paulo Mateus and I am currently doing a master's degree in the area of artificial intelligence at the IFCE (Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Ceará - https://ppgcc.ifce.edu.br).

    At graduation I developed Pedal Pi a DIY plugin processing equipment that uses LV2 audio plugins and runs on an embedded system (Raspberry).

    Continuing the work, I decided to develop a recommendation system where the algorithm would suggest plugins based on the plugins already present in the preset. At first I thought about doing for my graduation project, but I decided to apply in Zoom G3, because there are a lot of people using and presets shared on the internet (I need a set of presets to train the model) and also because I have the equipment and validate the result.

    I am still developing the work, I have some results and points to improve. One of the points is to apply the recommendation system somewhere. I discovered your tool and found it fantastic.
    I would like to make a pull request with the recommendation system when I finish the project, but I did not find the source code. How can I contribute to the project?

    Note: I have a Zoom G3, I could also add it in the program.

    If you want to have a look at the code, you can find the links below. But I'm still in the middle of development, so things are a bit messy.

    I recently ordered the Zoom MS 50g. Since it has most of the effects of Zoom G3, I plan to apply it too.

    Boris Shiriagin,
    I appreciate the link.
    However I do not understand if the program also functions as parameter editor or is restricted to creating custom firmware.
    In google drive I saw the compiled files but no open source so I could not modify the program to add a recommendation system.

    I'll share the post on the topic that is discussing custom firmware. I think they'll find it more interesting!

    Regarding fireware update - please have a look below correspondence between me and zoom makers (from down to up) regarding ZOOM G5N


    Hello,

    I am not sure of the likelihood of a change would be, we can just give feedback to our engineers, and they may decide to implement changes, or they may not.

    Dear Deniz,

    Thank you a lot for prompt reply!!!
    Every thing is clear. I hope developers in Japan will create something...
    Meanwhile I would like to ask you to advise their answer (as soon as you rcvd it). Would they realize such functions or not...

    This information will be very important to me to make a correct decision.
    I will explain.
    As soon as I bought my new ZOOM G5N and discovered that loop/drum functions are not the same as for ZOOM G3, I started to look for information in Internet.
    On several forums (including Russian) I found msgs from ZOOM G5N owners, that they are also not so happy with such restrictions.

    So now I need to make choice: should I change my Zoom G5N to other pedal board, or if there any chance that "developers in Japan" can make some patch/update as I described in my previous msg, I will stay with ZOOM?
    I believe, that ZOOM "flagman" G5N is quite flexible and has enough resources to became more comfortable for happy owners.

    One more time, thank you for your support and sorry for inconvenience.

    Best Regards.

    Boris Shiriagin.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting us with your feedback. There currently is no way to use the looper/rhythm functions as you are describing on the G5n.

    I will forward your suggestion to our developers in Japan to consider for a future update.

    We appreciate your support!

    Good Day Dear Sirs,

    I would like to ask you one question.
    Previously I was using Zoom G3 for 4 years. It was my first pedal board and it was greate and universal instrument. I was able to record full track or jam by using looper/drum functions together with different patches (as for bass, rhythm and solo guitars, just by pressing one knob to change patch during looper and drum were working). But times are passed and I gave my old ZOON G3 to my small brother (he was really happy). So now I became a happy owner of ZOOM G5N (I was a good boy in last year, so Santa brought it to me on X-MASS)
    But now I found that I could not use looper (80 seconds!!! - WOW!!!) and drum functions, as it was previously (independent from patches). If I change patch...looper/drum will be stopped ... And it is really sad, that I can use them only in one line with one patch...
    You made a really good product and support it with updates and patches for software.
    So my question is:

    Is it possible, that you will create separate patch/update for software (for ZOOM G5N), which will permit to use drum/looper functions separately of patches (as it was realized at ZOOM G3, G3X)? Zoom G5N has one not so useful knob "tap"...so it can be programmed for calling loopers / drums menu (as option)...
    I know that I'm asking too much... but maybe you have already this option ( in some not realized alpha/beta/2.x.... versions of software).. If so, I will be very appreciated, if you can share such patch/update with me. It will be VERY USEFUL for me!
    I liked ZOOM G3 because it had such function... Now I would like to Love my ZOOM G5N… But without this functions it is really not so comfortably ... to use it, especially for jam (when you playing on bass/ el. guitars alone (you need different sound), one by one... you should be able to change patches as fast as possible, without stopping the looper and drum).
    Any your reply will be appreciated. Thank you in advance and sorry for inconvenience.

    Best Regards.

    Boris Shiriagin.

    Hello, I see in Zoom decisions more focused on the business model (selling product over product) than coming from the engineers. So I do not believe that any implementation by them brings me any benefit in a product I already own.

    The project goes beyond the recognition of the company :)
