I'm after a new fx gizmo, but has to fulfill certain requirements My system currently consists of my Warwick thumb going into a Behringer Autocom, into a Warwick CCL combo. I then have a Zoom BFX708 in the amps fx loop. The zoom os the weak link. I mainly use the zoom for chorus on some songs to thicken my sound, an EQ changes, eg for ballads, to hard rock, to country. I sometimes use the autowah, which os total cack, the defret, soon to be replaced with a real fretless, and occ reverb on extremely slow fretless tunes (think Pino on Paul Young's 'wherever I lay my hat'). One thing that really annoys be with the zoom and many other fx units is the wall wart PSU. I'm fed up with not only having the fx loop leads running up front of the stage, but also an ext power cable to power the thing up, then loads of gaffa tape to stop me and the rest of the band tripping over it. (BTW I'm running it in the fx loop so I always have a constant level running into the amp from the autocom, so I don't have to constantly adjust levels, as the zooms patch level control ain't that useful. Most of the effect I use, other than the autowah and post preamp fx anyway). I really like the idea of the pod, j-station stuff etc, where I can have the main unit sitting on top of my amp, and have a passive/phantom powered floorboard out front, with just one cable. Only thing is, I wouldn't really use the amp models, except a home for recording, and the eq is part of the model. bybass the model, and you bybass the eq. I looked at rackmount mutilfx. Most of the ones in my price range (g-major's far too much), are only dual fx studio processors. They only allow up to 2 fx at once, one of which has to be reverb or delay. So no chorus and eq. They also, not being guitar fx, have no wah. But they can be controlled with midi foot controllers). I could always go for stompboxes. the boss dual pedal eq perhaps (tho I head the pedals don't scroll up and down thru patches, one is bank, and one is manual mode or something like that). A decent bass chorus and autowah/filter. But I would have cable everwhere again, and PSU's ( I don;t trust batteries on stage). I would also miss the xtra fx options, they sometimes come in handy. Or I could just say bollocks to it and get a GT6B and be done with it, and just live with the multiple cables on stage. So to sum up. something that can be used with a phatom powered floorboard. something that I can store different eq setting without them being part of an amp model. Good chorus and an autowah. Xtras would be nice (like delay and filters etc) but not necessary. It would be nice if it had a pretty meaty floorboard so I can compete with my bro's line6 board, and the other guitarist's VG88 & GR33, which takes up half the stage. Shiny and flashing lights are also good So suggestions please Cheers Nearly forgot I've just got an SKB XRack 3U case for the Autocom (nice case actually). I'm definitely planning on getting a korg tuner for it, an poss an enhancer (BBE, or Behringer). So I may or may not have room for a rackmount jobby.
