Due to limited recording space I will only be able to record guitar straight into desk without a miked up amp.

In order to achieve a good drive tone I will need to use something like TC Nova System, Nova Drive, Line6 HD500, Sansamp or similar.

For live work I plan using a stereo powered QSC 10 speaker rig with the same processor I use for recording in order to replicate same sound.

As I won't be using a crunchy valve amp for either recording or live use what effect processor would offer the most natural drive and distortion for Les Paul and Strat (lone star)

Would welcome your views
