That being said, I would start with checking out the SB2 MWBD and SB2 OFD.
This is right.
The SB1 is low cost, but they are big, plastic, and have limited controls and no presets. We almost made these obsolete, but they do hit a good price point for those who are OK with the features.
The SB Pro tried to address the weaknesses of the SB1 series by adding a 7 band EQ, 6 presets, MIDI, more controls, and expression in. They are still kind of big and they are the highest priced.
The SB2 tries to take the best of the SB Pro and put it in a smaller metal housing.
All three series have their place depending on what you might want.
