Ive been doing the searches but I just cant find a specific answer for my needs. Ive got a side project going where will being doing stuff like Jamiroquai, James Brown, Bill Withers, EW&F etc... I need some of the bass sounds/effects of that era, Fuzz, synth, a setting for slappin', and I also need a tuner. My rig for this project will be my old SWR 350 and a avatar 2x10 pro with a jazz bass. I like to keep things simple, convenient, and easy to use but dont want to sacrifice tone especially when I bypass the effect unit. Any ( sorry but more) advice on which multi effect unit floor or rack with floor pedal to get? I dont like pedals b/c of batteries and too many individual pieces of equipment. Im thinking around $500 or less. Ive been in a rock band for years and always steered away from effects. I dont mean to beat a dead horse here but Im totally lame when it comes to effects! I just need something quick, with solid and usable (maybe preset) effects for this type of new project Im in. thanks!
