    The Dec 2002 issue of Bass Player had a review of it.

    As for personal experience, I haven't experimented enough with mine to post my thoughts yet. There are a lot of settings to go through.

    I've got one, and am really happy with it. fantastic sounds, if used effectively.
    Shimmering chorus, useful reverb, surprisingly useful harmoniser and pitch shift fx (see my Steve Vai thread), quite good synth bass fx, good drive modelling, ample amp models (who really needs 16 bass amp models a la Pod, 4 comp models, and the list goes on.
    The only gripes I've got is it has no effects loop, like the guitar version does, and the pesky transformer.
    I'd much rather it be rackmounted with a phantom powered/midi floorboard. Then I'd just have one lead running along the floor, instead of 3 (more if it did have an fx loop)
