I'm going to be investing on my second mfx processor in a few days' time (had a Zoom before this one)... Needed some advice on wha to buy... I play in an altern metal band, and as of now am the lone guitarist. Mostly riffage, not too much soloing. Anyway, here's my wishlist for the processor...
1. Quick patch change, should be able to access atleast 4 patches at a time
2. Loads of effects!
3. Multi-functional pedal - Expression pedal should be able to handle a LOT of different parameters
4. Tweakability
5. Good dist... No need of great acoustic patches
6. Good delay, preferably with a looper
7. Intelligent harmonizer
I can't afford the GT-10 or the X-3 live, cuz there's a HUGE customs that we've to pay on guitar gear in India =(
Anything around 300 to 400 USD (unconverted) should be fine. Thanks =)

For 300 to 400 USD to spend on a new unit, you will get the following from above in an mfx.
1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Expression pedal won't handle multiple effects at once, meaning you can control one specific parameter at a time with it only
4. Yes
5. Good distortion for using with headphones
6. Yes
7. The harmonizers aren't very intelligent

Sounds like a RP500 could work out here, if you can find one used

Zoom G9.2TT has very quick patch changes, the most expression capability, but no looper. GNX4 has extensive looping and recording capability, multiple assigns to buttons, but slow patch changes.

ill sell you my boss gt-6 for $175 plus shipping. I love the pedal, but I owe money.

Isn't the GNX4 out of production? I loved the G9.2tt the first time I read about it, what with the twin tubes and all, but it doen't have an on-board looper... How's the ME-70?
#9
I've more or less zeroed in on Boss Me-70, Zoom G9.2tt, Digitech RP500 (I love the GNX-4, but now that it's out of production, won't service be a problem?). I need some feedback to help me decide. Thanks a ton =)

Save your money until you can get either a Digitech RP1000 or a POD X3 Live.

Sounds like the Digitech RP1000 would better fit your needs.
