    Although I am probably switching back to rack units, the ME-50B restored my faith in the sound quality of floor multi's. That said, the chorus is weak, but you can add a delay to it, which thickens it up nicely. HATE the wallwart, and you really need the 2 button Boss footswitch to operate between presets proerly (adds approximately $50, I think) On the plus side, it is sturdily built, easy to program and has no cabinet or amp modeling to clog things up. The volume/wah pedal also seems very sturdy, and it is easy to click the wah on/off.

    Really? Sweet!

    I've been trying to find a multi box that is just effects for the 3 or 4 songs that need a little flavoring. Problem is, they always put in these amp modellers and whatnot... but I already have the amp I want! I just want a variety of effects without a pedalboard the size (and cost) of an aircraft carrier. I'll certainly have to take a look at the ME-50B. Thanks for the heads up!

    I've tried the Boss GT-6B and the Pod xt. I like them both. Im having trouble making a decision between the two. Im thinking maybe I need to use both of them live and in the studio to help figure it out. Looks like the Pod is better at amp modeling and the Boss is stronger in the effects department. Plus I haven't even looked at all the other pedals out there like Zoom and Korg. Too many choices. I'd say it depends on what uses you're looking for. If you're like me, you want the best of both worlds.

    I've had the BOSS ME-50B for three days; am currently practicing with it, trying to come up with homemade patches. It is better than the Digitech BP200 it replaced, but you can't use as many effects at the same time. The drive/synth and chorus functions are very good.

    I hate multi effects , .... let me re phase that I hate multi effects with a passion..no I got it riht the fisrst time I guess. my buudy plays the Line y6 floor model the new one that just came out and he loves it, I do not, but he had a point my pedal board and the pedals come to about 1500.00 bucks and I still have pedals to add, so maybe I am the chump but it is kinda cool walking into a new situation, and the twanger has a small multi or even like two pedals on the top of his amp and the you go BAM BABY you drop a 27"by 20" pedal board with power supply ok maybe I should not talk that way but HEE HEE

    I like this one...http://www.bosscorp.co.jp/products/en/GS-10/

    The editing software is just too cool , and it's half the price of a 6-B ( 200 at GC new ). I like the layout of the 6-B better , but the usb interface and low price of the GS-10 made my decision easy.

    The graphics editing makes it easy to try different things , and when you get what you want you just assign it to a patch. I wish the 6-b had this interface cause it is one cool looking unit. The GS-10 looks kinda stupid next to the 6-b , until you open the GS-10 software .
