Hey Guys! (And Gals),

Recently just started up a band with a few friends and we're getting our gear sorted and there's been alot of back and forth conversation about what effects board to buy. We play metalcore/post-hardcore and I've been recommended the Line 6 HD500 or the Digitech RP100 but have been assured the HD500 is the go.

Can someone confirm that opinion or if there's something better out there? Budget up to $700 and live in Australia.

A Cort V (soon to be replaced with a Jackson RR or King V) and a Line 6 Spider Jam Combo for now.
#4
Just get a Line 6 FBV footswitch (The FBV2, FBV Express MKII and FBV Shortboard MKII are all compatible with Spider Jam) for now, and save up for a whole new upgrade.

Although I guess I should ask - what are you trying to accomplish with a DSP/MFX?
