    Hi Michael,
    Thanks again for your wonderful performance here in Cleveland. I was really blown away. I was wondering what rackmount effect or MIDI system you were using, specifically to get your sax simulation and the chorus-y effect that kicked in about five seconds after you played a chord. I know you use a Boss VF1 sometimes, but I couldn't see if that was it that night. Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, Bryan. The Boss VF1 is in fact, what I'm using on this tour. It's a great little box. I like it because it does so much but is very compact -- essential when you're traveling by air these days! It's actually my entire rig. Sadly, it's no longer being made.

    Thanks Michael. At least some are apparently still for sale at various internet sites like zZounds if ever a new one is needed.
