    Does anyone has any experience with Boss VF-1 multi effect. Does it have good effects for bass?

    If you know something about this Boss product, share that information with me please.

    Thank you...

    That's the red half rack one, right?

    Yes, it is that red half rack box.

    I also like Dream Theater. They can really play tricky music and it sounds good. I have heard that in studio they record the hole band at once???

    I used to have one.

    It does have decent effects for bass, but it is clearly meant for guitar. There are some nice patches for other instruments, too.

    I found it to be too cumbersome to use in a live situation; it's better suited to the studio, imo. In typical Roland/Boss fashion, the user interface is cumbersome and the manual is poorly written. I found the number of possible effects combinations to be quite limited for my purposes.

    The sound quality is excellent, however, and it is well-constructed.
