Hey i was thinking of getting a multieffects pedalboard and i dont really have the option of tring any out except for a few crappy digitech so whats good out there? Im thinking something out of the Boss Gt8, Digitech Gnx4 or a korg one but any suggestions would be helpful. Cheers


Also, anyone know much about the rocktron banshee talkbox? Any good?

ok well, i dont really know about any of those, but truly, a multi fx board is nice and all, but getting the individual fx produces a far better sound and is bettter overall than a multifx station. but otherwise ive heard good things about the boss, i dunno much about the others.

i just got the gt-8 for christmas, i have no idea how to use it yet, but ive looked at videos of it being used and glanced through the manual, and this thing can do anything. i dont know about the others, but the gt-8 is great.

Yes I have heard exceptional things about the GT8. Does it have like synth effects that like make it sound like a piano or orchestral strings cause that wud b sweet.

What about the Ibanez weeping demon wah? Im listening to the demo now it sounds pretty kul

I've owned a GT-8, GNX3000 and a Line 6 PODxtLive and have stuck with the PODXTL because I also use the amp modeling and I think it's a little better than the others in that regard. For FX sound quality I think the GT-8 is just as good and has more routing options, although it doesn't have as many FX as the PODXTL. All three units have synth-type effects but I personally think those are the weakest-sounding in terms of sound quality.

BTW, all three of these units have sound quality that's comparable to most pedals, despite popular opinion. It's just a matter of learning to program them properly for the amp you're running them through.

^^^cheers thats a lot of help. I like the sound of a lot of the g8s features like the combining amp models etc. Its true evry1 says get the proper pedals but the other guitarist in my band has got a vox tonelab se and its freakin sweet. All i have is a digitech rp50 and a dunlop gcb95. Thinkningh of selling them both and getting a gt8, talkbox, and possibly an ibanez wd7

Same show as Matt, but I stuck with the GT-8. I got rid of a lot of stomps after picking up the GT-8. It's a great box, and like he said, if you set it up use it correctly, there really isn't much of a difference in tone. I'm waiting to get my Mesa to see how the whole show sounds togther. And as far as using a weeping demon, don't...the wah build in to the GT-8 is great and very responsive. I started out using my Morley BH-2 with the GT-8 but dumped it because the onboard wah did a better job.
