Simple, intuitive control for gaming and game streaming
The ZG01's physical controls designed for gaming, voice chat, as well as for streaming, provide simple, intuitive management of all your audio signals without detracting from your overall gaming experience.
ZG sound processing for ultimate immersion
ZG SURROUND: Experience virtual surround sound for stunning authenticity
Yamaha's new proprietary "ViReal™ technologies for headphones" has been further optimized for gaming to maximize your stereo headphones' 3D sound quality. Enjoy powerful game sound with unprecedented realism.
FOCUS MODE/EQ: Hone your game audio to enhance immersion
FOCUS MODE/EQ can suppress the sound of your own character's voice or emphasizes environmental sounds of the game audio. The settings can be configured to suit a variety of game titles, scenes, and playing styles. For example, you can focus on the sound of your opponent's footsteps for a more authentic experience.
3D CHAT SPACE: Clearly distinguish between game and chat audio
With 3D CHAT SPACE you will feel as if you were playing a game in the same room with your friends. By placing the other party's voice in a virtual 3D-space, it avoids overlap with game audio and voice chat, letting you hear all your audio signals clearly and comfortably.
Share your surround sound experience with your audience
Your multi-channel game audio is converted and processed by the ZG to reproduce a surround sound experience that you can stream to your listeners.
Even if they are not ZG users, as long as they listen with stereo headphones, you can deliver the same immersive authenticity to your audience.
Powerful DSP effects to enhance your gaming experience
Customize your voice and game audio with zero-latency DSP processing to adapt to various virtual environments during gameplay.
- For your voice: Voice changer, Transceiver/Radio voice effect, masking beep sound, and 1-Touch Echo
- For game audio: ZG SURROUND and FOCUS MODE/EQ allow sound customization to suit your taste and gaming scene
*Presets can be assigned to the three physical buttons for instant recall
ZG dedicated driver allows individual signals to be assigned to multiple client software applications
When you install the dedicated driver in your computer (Windows/Mac), the ZG01 is recognized as two virtual devices, and can send and receive two audio channels for different purposes. For example, you can set up a voice chat application to send only your voice audio, as well as a streaming application to broadcast your game and voice chat audio.
Practical, comprehensive connectivity for gamers
The ZG01 is equipped with an HDMI port for connecting consumer game consoles, as well as other ports necessary for building a more extensive gaming sound environment. The integrated features allow you to do away with the often complicated and cumbersome wiring or adapters that peripheral devices often necessitate.
- HDMI port: The 2-in/1-out HDMI ports allow direct connection to consumer game consoles, and can also function as a 2 input HDMI switcher and HDMI conversion adapter with audio extraction. (Audio out: 2ch 24-bit/48kHz fixed, Video signal: Pass-through)
*The ZG01 doesn't have a video capture function. Therefore game streaming live video will require a compatible external video capture device.
- Flexible audio input and output: The audio I/O jack provides flexibility for connecting the microphone, headphones, headset and desktop speakers of your choice.
- USB-C x 2: Ensures stable signal transfer and power supply. (USB2.0)
- Integrated terminal ports on the back: All connections that are rarely changed are concentrated on the rear panel, allowing for smart, unobtrusive wiring.
"ZG Controller" dedicated software
The ZG01's dedicated software application (Windows/Mac), ZG Controller, allows you to select and edit detailed volume and effect settings and assign them to presets for your game audio and headphones.
These presets can also be exported and imported as configuration files that will allow you to share them with friends that also use ZG consoles.
