So i guess I'm joining a band with some people thats an expiremental something or another in the vein of A Perfect Circle and Porcupine Tree, and I've really got to update my effects in ordcer to do some of the sh*t that I'm going to have to do. I was wondering what would be the best way to go in order to get the most of the effects that Mr. Howerdel from APC uses. I was thinking a Boss GT-8 would do the trick, but does anyone know if that will actually supply enough and the right kind of effects for what I'm going for? And does anyone have any other reccomendations on something I should get alongside the GT-8, or something I should just totally get instead of the GT-8?

All help and advice is GREATLY appreciated.
GT-8 will serve you well as an effects processor/substitute for individual stopboxes. It'll also do a great job with preamp simulators if you need that kind of stuff.
