FX are good on the whole, especially the delays and higher-power reverbs, but the real power is the results you get from chaining multiple algorithms together and get busy with those modifiers. MIDI control is superb, very comprehensive and quick to set up, up to 8 CCs active in a single patch, many modulatable parameters per algorithm plus internal lfos to play with. no end of new sounds to explore, factory presets do it a great disservice in the weirdness stakes.

the 4ins/outs feature can be something of a distraction, I tend to use it as a 'normal' mono in/stereo out device concetrating all the DSP onto one signal chain. using it as 4 separate processors can sound like 4 distinctly average processors, but the options there if you want it. which is nice.

Very good FX for the money.Sounds a bit cheap especially when you route claps and hihats through it.I think the best starter FX. Bought mine for Fl. 500,-

I paid only $ 200 for it, and it's the ultimate solution for a small size home-studio environment.

You can permanently connect 2 stereo or 4 mono instruments and assign effects to them. The effects sound clean and I record the output direct into logic audio via my Guillemot Isis breakout box. Great effects like vocoder, hall,delay, pitchshift, etc. You can make your voice sound like 4 people singing, or like a black bluessinger(=very low) and then some. It also has a voice killer so you can make karaoke music to your favourite song for practice!

Highly recommended for producing voice and keyboards/synths, but for guitar, yamaha or boss fx sound better I think. Try to find one cheap, you'll love it!
