(Warning, this message contain a low level of english language. But hey, no smilies !) Hi all, I have a lot of neighbors all around. And, i cant practice whit a big amp in my room. So, i think about a multi-effect which can give me a good sound, and all the effect i want. I need (not really, i want more than i need) a multi-effect for home use, and maybe practice and live use. (more the first) What i need really ? At the effect level, i want a good overdrive/distortion/... (but i'm more a overdrive guy), envelope filter, chorus, a looper (hard to find on a multi-effect ?). And maybe some more i cant think of now. At the amp simulator level, i don't care about the similes between the simulated and the real thing. I never played on the real thing. (I think of the SVT here...) So, if that sound good, its ok for me. I see some models: The Korg AX3000B The Zoom B9.1UT And the last one, the Line6 X3/X3 Live. (more expensive than the others) (Maybe some others i cant remember of, like the Boss one(s).) But, what i don't know on these guys, is the reliability. And, I don't care if i need to mess around before finding THE sound. In fact, i love it. héhé. Now, why ? Why a multi effect and not a, hum, sansamp/like and the effect i want, standalone ? Because, the money, and, probably used only at home... for now. And i didn't even plan to play on a "real" amp whit this, for now. Thanks for your advice. PS: I know, i can try before buying. But, all the big shop are far from here. So, i want some advice before going at the chase. And, there is some things we cant know in the shop, like the reliability of the hardware/software. EDIT: When i talk about a looper, that's like the RC serie of Boss, and not a LS-2 like.
