  1. Has any one used one of these? I saw one today at a pawn shop for $50. It sounds alright, but the little buttons would reek havoc me! Fair amount of compression & gain.

    ...a bit delayed, but I have one in my rack. Nice compressor and chorus. Distortion sucks, but there are some interesting patches. $50 is a steal if it's in good shape, think they were $299+ new, but don't remember much from those days. I think I got it for Christmas when I was 15 (almost 20 years ago).

    I've got one as well, a bargain at $50.
    Great sounding reverb and lots of MIDI functionality.
    It requires some tweaking but there are a ton of sounds in there.
    If you need to add a MIDI switcher try the Rocktron Midi Exchange; it has a cool A/B feature to use one click that switches between two sounds/patches
