I quit my band recently. Long story. Anyway, the bulk of my playing from now will be musicals and function stuff, so I decided that I want to get something in my rack with a bunch of effects that I can pop out if/when needed, so that I don't have to carry pedals round on the offchance, and I don't have to have anything on the floor when I'm in a pit. To this end, I also want to get a tuner in there. Now the restrictions: 1 - I want to be able to run it all in the FX loop of my amp, so it has to work at line level. I don't want to be running cables from the front to the back of my rack. 2 - I am more than happy with my amp tone, so I don't need modelling. If the solution has amp modelling that is fine as long as it can be bypassed. 3 - I want a decent selection of effects, including gain stuff. I'm not expecting a digital rack mount effects unit to blow me away with the quality of its overdrives but it doesn't matter because it's not going to be something that I use every day. 4 - I have 2u worth of rack available. I have come up with a couple of potential solutions. I am mainly looking for comments on my ideas, or any alternative suggestions. Mine are as follows: 1 - A Line 6 Bass POD XT Pro. This has a bunch of effects and a tuner. The only thing I'm not certain of is whether it can run in an effects loop or not. 2 - A Korg Pitchblack Pro and a Boss VF-1. By all accounts the VF-1 is a pretty cool unit with decent effects. It would also leave me with a half width space that I could smash a compressor or something into. Thoughts?
