    I know there was a discussion about this effect in a previous thread, but I was wondering if anyone had it. I've read some really good reviews on it, but is it worth 385 bucks? It'd have to be pretty darn good!

    Anyway, I may need a synth effect sometime soon (electronic music, you know...) and I hated the Boss SYB-3...
     
  2. i dont know if your talking US dollars here but you can buy the Akai Deep IMpact for about 170 anywhere.

    Nah, this is Canada... 170 USD is probably not far off from 385 CAND these days :p

    I've been using one since christmas (thanks to the wife!) and I really like it above and beyond the boss synth... you can store nine different synth settings in that thing, I think they all track really well, and it's cheaper than the boss.... I don't think you can go wrong with it! btw, I wasn't looking for a synth, my wife got it for me for christmas... I was originally going to take it back, but then I started playing with it, and had to keep it!

    I have the Boss synth pedal & the Deep Impact...the Deep Impact smokes the Boss unit! The Deep Impact also can be used as a good octave divider.
