When I first got this I was sceptical, I mean I wasn't exactly expecting to get amazing quality effects just some decent ones, that I could make do with until I could afford enough single pedals, but I've got to admit this pedal sounds fantastic, the Overdrive and distortion channels sound amazing, the wahwah is extremely effective and the chorus is great sounding as well, it is just fantastic, simple and sweet. Overall the effects are very very full sounding and don't sound too digital by any means. The superstack feature is especially great. I tend to use the compression alot as well, weith it I can easily nail the under the bridge tone that I was looking for! Overall all the effects are extremely versatile and easily good sounding. the distortions and overdrives are a little harder to get good, but if use the superstack button and equalize through the preamp you can get unbelievable sound!
Overall Impression — 9
I like to play a lot of different songsa by artists but my favorit band of all time is RHCP, and they use ALOT of effects, this pedal is great for nailing their sound both tonewise and effectwise. If this pedal was stolen I would buy it again, overall this pedal is amazing!
Reliability & Durability — 10
This thing is a tank, its not cheap plastic its metal and it will last! If I were to start gigging I would use this since it sounds like its older brother (the me-70) and even better sometimes, also I can plug this thing directly into a pa and also record with a usb cable, so I wouldn't even really need my amp either!
Ease of Use — 9
The way they have setup the interface on this one is very well done and simple, it took me about 20 minutes to figure it out, if ur really stuck just look at the manual trust me, the people who designed this knew what they were doing, but I do wish that they had made three seperate knobs to control the AMP MODELS instead (HI, MID, LO). But overall this thing is efficient and extremely easy to use, especially since you can organize all of ur sound library on the computer as well. You can even save patches oon the computewr, and btw you can hav a total of 120 patches sinces you hav 60 normal patches and 60 in ur sound library as well!
