    They're really inventive at finding new ways to take our money, aren't they ?

    Dare I ask? How much do they want for this beast? Also, is it reliable? I used to own a G-Major. The effects were wonderful, but there was at least one software bug that TC support told me wouldn't be fixed and the knobs had a tendency to fail.

    Wow, if they keep the price low on that I can see a slight downsizing of my pedalboard.

    Edit to expand upon this.

    I've had stupid big rack systems and multi-fx and currently a huge pedalboard controlled by a loooper which is the most effective and simplest set-up I've had so far. This however is pure genius, TC should now own the high end fx/rack/pedalboard market. The features are astounding, they haven't bothered (wisely) with OD's or distortions but have all the stuff TC are great at (modulation and delays) with a fantastic interface to integrate with your pre-amp of choice, your pedals or rack units of choice and provide a way to control it all.

    I am so impressed, this is a major step forward in providing fantastic control over fx and pedals etc. without the need for midi controlled switchers etc.

    i would sell my me-50b for that in a heatbeat... i assume they will be in a similar ballpark pricewise? with 25 effects they probably werent aiming to take the gt-6 market...

    this thing will work fine for bass too im assuming ?

    I don't have a hint of a price but I'm pretty sure you will be able to afford two-three ME-50Bs at least for the price of this thing.

    A bit rich for my blood, if it came down to less than €1000 including tax then it'd probably sell in spades.

    I'm pretty confident that we can expect 1000 retail.

    It looks pretty nice - I wonder how it will compare to the G-Force

    I think it probably is a tweaked and rehoused G-Force. It should put some stress on all of those Digi-Boss-o-Zoom floor things, although the price may work against that. (On the other hand, the Lexicon MPX-G2 never really got legs, so maybe not. I never got to play with one of those.)

    i wonder if the pitch effect and whammy effects will work well on bass...and also..since i guess you cannot bypass the whole pedal...if changing from one patch to another will give you that sec without sound that you get from some other multi-fx pedals
