I'm thinking about diving into effects to fill out some space in a new band I'm playing in.. Seems like I can probably spend less on buying something like the BEHRINGER BASS V-AMP rackmount effects unit ($180.00) plus a midi controller multi-pedal ($150) vs a ton of effects pedals ($75-$100 ea.) and a pedal board ($80?), 9V cables etc.. Seems like, by the time you buy two individual pedals and a pedal board you've spent more than what it would cost using the rackmount route.. Must be some reason most people stick to pedals.. Pedals have better sound quality due to the analog factor? What am I missing?
