    Okay, so I did a search to see if anyone used this device for rehersal or gigs, but it seems as though everyone mainly uses it as a practice tool. How does it sound at higher levels? I've really been thinking about purchasing one.

    I use the younger version (the PX3B) as an effects unit in my pedalboard. They are NOT really designed for live use. I had to put mine in line with a loop switcher to turn it on and off (by bypassing it entirely), and I had to put a stereo jack on one end since the thing only sends out in stereo, for designed headphone use.

    It really is ONLY a practice tool. I just happened to tweak a great flange sound out of mine that I can't approach elsewhere, so I incorporated it into my pedalboard. Its a great unit, but if you buy it, be sure to understand the limitations of its design.
