Well i was looking back over my old Total Guitar issues trying to find a review on the GT8... Wehn i stumbled across this baby in a review... It sounds savage! In-beat effects.. thats so cool! And the soundclips on MusiciansFriend are really good! And according to TG The Chilis used one on By The Way, if its good enough for John, its gotta be good!

So has anyone used it? And can you use the effects without amp simulations or what? And does it have effects loop like on the GT8... and lastly i swear!... Can i buy seperate blank stomp boxes like these http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Keyboards/Midi/Amps/Accessories?sku=421384 etc for assigning stomps to different patchs or is there an easy way of getting to your patch?
