    It is actually possible to modify the firmware of a Zoom device and then install FX from different Zoom devices on it.
    I have written about this here:

    At the moment ToneLib-Zoom does not see these new and non native FX so they can not be edited with the ToneLib-Zoom editor.

    I guess the editor just checks which device is hooked up and displays the FX that should be normally on the device, but does not check if there are other FX installed.

    It would be awesome if this can be somehow addressed, so that people with a modified device could also edit all the FX they really have on their device via the ToneLib-Zoom editor.

    Thanks for your consideration!

    Let me top onto your thread, the modified firmware performs well and would appreciate if its backed by a compatible Tonelib Zoom. I have acoustic and bass effects into my tonelib an it gives a perfect sound.

    Totally agree, this would be really useful. I love Tonelib-zoom but have gone back to editing patches manually on the pedal itself so that I can access the new effects I have added.

    i did modify mine and its working perfectly..but zoom doesnt have a true bypass so really kills that raw acoustic piezzo pickup tone and reduces it to a very weak signal. That is in the case when you have imported acoustic effects into your g5n. That is enough to tell me that Zoom AC3 is not a very good acoustic pedal since i have all its functions in my g5n and the thing they do best is to kill tone. So if you are an acoustic guitarist try another effect pedal coz Zoom does well with electric but on really sucks
