Alright, I have been playing guitar for almost nine years, and I have no idea about anything rack-related. I have amassed a fairly large collection of good grea over the years, but what is the advantage to owning rack effects as opposed to pedals or floor-based multi-effects? We're getting a bunch in at the music store that I work at, and it sparked my interest, especially as I am becoming more serious with sound and recording.

So basically:Why rack effects?

They tend to be higher quality effects with much more tweakability. Not to mention they fit in a rack and don't clutter up the floor.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
i've got the same questions as you my friend. why? how do you turn them on and off from stage? and etc...
I just use a lexicon in the effects loop. The rest on the floor.
