OK, so i tried my friend's tubescreamer. it was the model that's right below the 808 replica. it was great and all, but it just didn't do what i wanted. however, the "Modern OD" setting on my ME-50 does exactly what i want.

When i used the TS on my fender deluxe, even with the drive set all the way down, i was still getting a good bit of dirt. so much so that it was hard for me to do my lightly overdriven clean-ish tone that i like. However, with my ME-50, i have to have it set at like 3 before it really starts to get some dirt on it. Is there an individual pedal i can get that'll do that?

Yea...I'm sorry that this post has been very vague and possibly pointless, but i was looking around on gc.com and wondering about that.

anyway, thanks

So what you're asking for is an amp that's just slightly overdriven? Why not just crank your amp a bit more, or is that too loud?
#4
what do you mean the model that's right below the TS808 reissue? do you mean chronologically or price wise?

most of the settings on multi effects are based on either the company that makes the multi effect's pedals (ME-50 would have boss pedal tones, RG250 Digitech pedals' tones, Etc.) or famous pedals in general.

try out a couple of Boss' indivudial pedals.

try the boss SD-1 or SD-2 at some store. on of those is probably the pedal that the me-50 is modeling.

maybe zw-44 has heaps of gain great for pushing an overdriven amp but not so great for boosting a clean amp for a girtty blues tone

that's a very big misconception. the ZW-44 doesn't have that much gain on tap, enough for a good light classic rock distortion, but not a lot of gain. it has about the same as a TS808 tubescreamer. it does sound more modern, though. unlike the TS series and every other overdrive out there, it scoops out the mids a bit rather than boost them,

Yea, like i said, i really can't describe what I'm looking for tone-wise. Idk, it just seemed like the TS and TS modelers i have tried have all been too treble-y almost. thanks for the suggestions from everyone. I'm probably going to have to go try a bunch of different pedals to figure out what i'm going for.

Thanks
anymore suggestions are welcome

what about a clean boost?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

That's funny, I thought the ZW was based on the Boss SD-1 Zakk Wylde used.
