    Now that the Akai Deep Impact has been discontinued, what are a bass player's options for an effects pedal that gets tones that good with multiple presets that can be switched via foot? I've searched online and I only come up with the Digitech and Boss synths... as nice as they sound, they're only one-trick pedals on a gig.

    The only other one with foot switching presets is the Korg G5, and it's discontinued too....

    That always surprised me: WHY would you discontinue a product that is so unique and of such a great quality?

    Shame for the Deep Impact.....

    I'd guess they weren't selling enough of them. They basically discontinued their whole pedal line - hexacomp, unibass, gdrive, deep impact etc.
