I need a good multi effects pedal for about $250 or under.

It should have patch storing and USB connectivity to record stuff.
and also ease of use is important too.


Thanks,

Yeah, any of the Digitech RP series are great.

Are you arguing with a German guy about how to speak German?

Do you need amp modeling? Because RP355 doesn't have that good amp models, they sound too flat for me (I don't know about other pedals in the same price range). But I use it for recording and it does its job well. And you get a Cubase recording program with it. And as an effector it works too (I mean when using without amp models). I just don't like the amp models. It's easy to use once you have learned it but it takes some time. But yeah, it's pretty good for the price.

IMO, the rp's amp models are pretty close to the pod hd's amp models. You just have to eq them right and add a ts to boost it.

My std list of questions.

1) To keep it under a certain price? ($250 check)
2) Need a looper?
3) Need a drum machine?
4) Want it like separate stomp boxes?
5) Need amp modeling?
6) Going to use it with a tube amp that has an FX loop?
7) Want an expression pedal?
8) Can buy used?
8) Are you located in a market that has all multifx available?
9) Need enough footswitches to control individual FX?
10) Need multiple control assignments per switch/pedal?
11) Need USB record? (yes, check)

Yes to all but 4, 7, 8 and 9.
Amp modeling is not necessary but cool if it has.
As for #7, built in expression pedal is good.

I'm gonna say the BOSS ME-70. It has an expression pedal with wah, voice, octave up and down, mod and delay rates, many different modulations, delays, compression, and distortion effects, a headphone out, a cosm preamp with 3 band eq or 4 as a literal eq without an amp model. Also, theres different presets and you can save presets up to i think 36, stereo outputs, built in hall and room reverb, a noise gate, footswitch out for reverb, and usb out. Everything on it is EXTREMELY easy to use, and durable metal consturction. Only complaint is the sweep of the wah isn't as full as i like, but then again its not bad either. Just my 0.02

EDIT: Oh and theres a 30 sec looper too
DAS BOOT!!!

I recommend the digitech rp355. It has many different distortion stomps that are pretty realistic. It has great sounding effects. The expression pedal can control virtually anything from reverb level to effects on/off. It has a drum machine with over 60 patterns and it has a 20sec looper. http://www.digitech.com/en/products/rp355

I think Kutless recommends the RP355. Just wanted to clear that up.

Since you said no to 8, you need to tell us what multifx are available to you in your price range.

Since you said yes to drum machine and looper I recommend the Zoom G3. It can use an external expression pedal if you need one. Here's my thread on the G3...

There is no multifx in this god forsaken country.
I'll check out the G3.
