    Can anybody recommend a good half rack multieffects unit?

    Boss VF-1 - excellent quality fx, an instrument level input and full midi controllable. Can be found regularly on ebay for about the $200-250 mark.

    It has a major advantage over other fx - it has amp models and therefore you can get distortions out of it.

    Alternatively its predecessors are also supposed to be pretty damn good - the SE50 & SE70

    And the distortions are quite usable.

    Don't know of any samples, and google doesn't show any. Check out some reviews (there's one at www.soundonsound.com), they're €419 new at Thomann.
     
  7. It was my understanding they've been discontinued for a couple of years now. :confused:

    If that's the case I suspect there's a great deal of old stock still being sold.

    Mo is correct. They've been gone a couple years, but occasionally they pop up as NOS. I actually got one of mine that way at (the old) Manny's in Hollywood. You can find them used all over Ebay though.
