    1. Protect against voltage spikes
    2. Filter out noise in the AC
    3. Provide multiple outlets in your rack
    4. Most units have pull out lamps to help you see your controls on stage

    The much more expensive voltage regulators can also give you a consistent voltage even if the AC supply is abnormally low or high; this is really useful for outdoor gigs where you are running off small generators.
