It depends, do you gig or just jam with people/play alone?

\Multi effects are genreally easier , but sometimes don't sound as good and give you less control over your sound.

Well it's alway best to get individual pedals for the best quality per effect, but a good multi fx pedal will give you lots of options. I've got one for sale in my sig, but depending on your budget you could go either way.

If you're playing metalcore you don't really need FX. So, just get a couple of individual pedals. Get a delay for starters. That's honestly all I can think of for metalcore.

On a side note, don't be close minded about brands. Just because it doesn't say MXR or Boss doesn't mean the pedal are poor. In fact I can say there are only 5-6 pedals made by each of the companies that are decent. Check out other brands, most of the best FX are made by lesser known companies.

Why do people say this..

Take the TC Electronic G-System for example.. it's a multi-effect. It has better quality then many (nay, most) single pedals.

if you want a multifx, get the boss gt-8, u can get em on ebay real cheap to, or in a regular store. and dont let anyone tell you they wont let you control your sound. I have one and OMG!! you can mess with settings for ever if you want, you can just keep tweeking your sound, or you can find a preset you like, maybe adjust it. you can also build from scratch. pick an amp, setting on amp, fx chain (order of virtual pedals and their setting, any thing from acoustic sim to metal muff) mic possition, type of mic, volume of mic, seriously everything!! and it has an adjustable noise gate, so it wont be noise like stomp boxes

I have to disagree here, while the G-System is nice and sounds really good, I still think my (mostly) analog rig has a nicer sound.

as for the OP, single effects are a lot better unless you plan on shelling out serious cash for a good rack mount processor.

the carbon copy sounds better but the boss is a little more versatile, try both and see which suits you more.

For delay check out the EMPRESS Super Delay or the Moog if you have no budget. The DD-3 is an ok pedal, but isn't comparable to either of those.

You might also want to look into a chorus pedal. The MXR is and the Boss' are sterile IMO unless you get a DC-2/3 or CE-2.

anyone wanna answer the boys question instead of debating over modeling Vs. analog.

we all have our own opinions, let the kid form his own, recomend him some products to go and try.

first of all, metal, you want some distortion, not sure if your amp has distortion/if you like it's distortion. so i'll give you a couple pedals to try, you say you like boss (people going on and on about being open mind, well, you should, but different brands have different feels, sorta like comparing a les paul to a strat, seriously people.). try a boss Ds1 great starting pedal, also try an ehx metal muff, get your hands on a tube screamer (every guitarist who uses distortion needs an od aswell). My personal choice for distortion/od is a Fulltone GT-500, but thats just me.

You'll want a chorus/flanger aswell, have a look at some old 1980's ones made by ibanez or boss, they're as good if not better then the stuff they pump out today (they're jap made aswell).

You'll want a delay, same aplies here, the old ibanez and boss pedals are fantastic.

that should get you started

Go into stores and play some of them, then leave, dont pay instore price, you'll get them so much cheaper on ebay, but you might have to wait a little while for them to come up,

good luck buddy
