Sound — 1
It's difficult to speculate on the sound quality, this worthless POS died after only two hours of use. What I did hear for the two hours I was trying to edit patches would have been impressive in a quality unit. Unfortunately, this is not a quality unit. Right now, Behringer gets higher ratings for quality than DigiTech gets.
Overall Impression — 1
Avoid this unit at all costs. Buy something else. I hope it doesn't get stolen or lost before I can return it for a refund. Obviously, given my negative experience, I have no plans to ever purchase DigiTech equipment again. I guess my next attempt will be to try Korg equipment.
Reliability & Durability — 1
It's unfortunate I can't give this thing a negative rating for this category. Since it died in the middle of my attempts to set up my own patches, I can only describe it as totally unreliable. Yes, it has a metal case, but apparently the circuitry inside the metal casing must have been manufactured and wired by some inbred mormons or hillbillies.
Ease of Use — 3
The "described" procedure for editing patches in the manual sounds easy. Unfortunately, the unit died before I could edit any patches. The manual is clearly written and easy to understand. The firmware revision is 1.1. I had to download the upgrade from the manufacturer's website.
