Yes, a good and very programmable unit for echo/delay and special (very digital!) effects. but the rest is poor quality, hitting rock bottom with the Vocoder and vocal distortion eff. You can however create some strangety out of this box, and some decent chorus and reverbs for spicing up el. instruments. Fairly clean (its 24-bit, after all) but digital sounding.

I have been using this unit in my studio for about 4 years, and true...when I first bought it, thinking of it as a great multiFX machine that could do all kinds of fancy FX, I was being naive... But it is still in the FX-loop of my main mixer, and I will try to explain why: The reverb, chorus, flanger, Distortion, etc. FX are digital low end, that is, if you add a few days of programming, you can get a decent Reverb or two, a useable chorus effect, and thatÂ´s pretty much it (unless of course you like cold digital mayhem type of FX...). Rather than wasting your time, get the marvellous Alesis Microverb 4 for this, thatÂ´s what I did... Yet for echo & delay FX the Virtualizer is actually a very good machine, esp. when you learn to program it. It sounds clean, precise, and can do all types of mono or stereo echo/delays. Remember to use the EQ, therein lies the magic...boosting the low EQ and just slightly reducing the Hi-EQ is one little tip...it works! I also have a Boss analogue Delay machine, an Ensoniq DP/2 and the aforementioned Microverb 4...the virtualizer is still my favourite for delays, itÂ´s that good. So if that is what youÂ´re after, check this unit out. For echo/delay it deserves a (my rating is regardless of price. It is worth mentioning though, that I am into electronic, synth and samplebased music)....

behringer consistently makes shitty products, and they say 'value for money' ... dam right its cheap because they use cheap ass items........i think they should be boycotted. If you want a good mixer, get a mackie or yamaha. If you want a good effects processor, get a good alesis or yamaha. Stay away from behringer! ...

I have to give it a 10. It has nice processing, it has made my good stuff better but, maybe because I am an electronic/sample artist...anyhow I like it, with its simple midi control 24-bit dual engine and for $100 it's lovely
