Has anyone tried the new Trio+ (band in box) pedal and have any thoughts regarding ease of etc?
I have the original, though it recently fried. I haven't tried the "+" model but the regular Trio is pretty easy to use and a pretty impressive gadget. Your playing has to be clear and on time for it to work well. I already have a looper but imo $179 and a seperate looper trumps $299 for the Trio+, that's just me though.

I'd advise getting a good warranty. Digitech gave me an address for an authorized repair facility near-by but its unclear to me who's footing the bill. I was pretty bummed when it suddenly bricked, its a lotta fun to screw around with.

I like that it has more styles of drums/bass than the original.
