All, I play in a sort of post-punk/shoegaze/punk/synth/alt-rock sort of band. Basically a mash of Joy Division, A Place To Bury Strangers, and The Cure, with some Helmet, Exploited, Wolfsheim, Front242, and Jane's Addiction tossed in for good measure. All that being said, I'm looking for a cheap'ish multi-effects pedal to throw some difference into the mix. I've went from manufacturer's site to manufacturer's site. Scoured YouTube (where most of the recorded audio is less than optimal for comparisons), and more. The problem is there's a sea of options and I'm not finding the needle in the haystack. So here's hoping someone from TB can narrow the field a bit! I'd love to find a single mullti-pedal with the following: 1) A computer interface- I'd really prefer to tweak the sounds, or at the very least store my customs, via a computer. The thought of tapping pedals and twisting buttons over and over seems tedious. A few sliders and mouse-clicks would be ideal. I do *not* need the USB for recording or anything, just really want it for tweaking/saving. 2) Price- While I'd love a Digitech iPB-10 (the one that uses an iPad), $500 is more than I'd care to spend. I suppose I could also buy a bunch of individual pedals, but that too gets costly. Something sub $250 would be great. 3) Synth- I would almost kill for a synth sound that would get me REALLY close to the sound of an old Moog Taurus bass pedal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moog_Taurus). 4) Distortion 5) Chorus- Something that can get me in the same zipcode as Hookey (Peter Hook, bassist of Joy Division). It doesn't have to be exactly the same. This is an original band after all... 6) A Wah pedal- Not so much for true wah capabilities, but for the ability to stroke/sculpt a sound on the fly. I like the idea of the tactile ability to change sound on the fly, rather than bend over and twist a knob. 7) Connectivity- Some sort of D.I. type ability so I can run direct-in to our board is nearly a must-have. 8) Surprises- I'm not exceedingly well versed in effects. Most of my background is in 80's punk, so effects never really concerned me. Now I'm a bit older and branching out, and would welcome the ability to try out a few of the "other" effects such a unit will probably have on-board. So what is it? An old Digitech BP-8? A Digitech BP-355? Maybe a Boss or Korg something or another? Obviously you can see I'm not dead set on it having all of the 8 criteria listed above, but the closer to having all 8 on-board the better. Thanks!!
