With VSTs you have a variety of effects you can have for free.
There honestly should be a compact VST processor that you can use with your guitar.

There are tons of VST effects out there, including multi-effect processors. This isn't anything new. PODfarm, Revalver, just to name two big ones.

Or am I not getting your question?

*edit*

I think I get what you mean. A processor where you can decide which VST's to run on it with a simple interface, maybe in stompbox format?

I think we're getting there, just need to cut down on the cost and size to build these processors. Wouldn't be very different from the modern day multi-effects processors though.

I do know people who run a laptop in their live setup. They use only VSTs for their sound and have a friend or tech control them.

Yeah that's what I mean but maybe in a more compact device, easy to carry around and use and less expensive than a laptop.

VSTs have an endless variety of effects to have though. There's even monophonic synthesizer programs like Alien Solo that you can use on your guitar for guitar melodies.
Stuff beyond things like reverb, delay, and distortion.
