This is my first effects box/pedal (whatever) so theres nothing to compare it to. I've tried out a few other smaller moudules, but they don't hold a condle to this.

40 presets, A-B amp modes, its got the pedal that whahs the effects, 3 drum presets ( i think). AC powered. It's new so thats all I've messed with so far.
I use my Ibanez G10 electric guitar and run it through my Ibanez amp. Pluged in the mic for voice distortion (sounds all sorts of phucked up)! I play stuff that kind of sounds like rock but I'm really starting in on some expiremental stuff distorting my Honer Acoustic with a mic and distortion box. Havn't shown anyone yet so when I gather outside opinions I'll fill you in.
Its like using a ToneWorks Pandora PX3 but with all the pedals i need to mess it up.
I'm very noisey.
Programmable and very easy to use.
I plan on using it for a live performance after new years...we'll see how it goes.
Dude, i love this thing, right now i have a patch that makes it sound like a robot, and i have so many different distorion types, and i have wah wah and everything, i love it to death....

Dude, i know nothing about all this stuff, i love this thing though.
It goes ok i guess with my amp, i need a larger amp...
Man, it is easy as hell to program and i have already programmed so many different things in it.
I fell on it once, i think i took more hurt than it did...
A very good unit, overall.
Two things could make this unit indispensable, a compressor on/off toggle and cleaner program transition on the fly. There's a slight drop when switching programs. If it were lost or stolen, I would upgrade.

This unit is AC powered.
My only complaint is that the unit doesn't allow the compressor to be toggled on/off. If you want to boost your signal for a lead passage, you must program a duplicate patch with a new compressor setting and switch to it for the lead, then back when your done.
I use this unit with a Tele and a Strat.
I play through a Crate 1600XL and a Fender Deluxe Reverb.
For recording, I go directly into the board, this gives a nice crisp sound.
I use it for pretty much all styles of music, depending on the gig or session.
It's not as clean as my ART Multiverb but, more flexible.
Very easy to program.
It takes a lot of experimenting to obtain a good sound. But then, that's half the fun. I have stumbled onto some interesting combinations trying find my sound.
Most units are fairly easy to program so, this one is comparable.
It's plenty reliable for live situations.
Digitech has a good rep for making durable products.
The construction on this unit is bent metal.

Wah wah needs help. Otherwise very cool
Moderate learning curve. Once you catch on, its
pretty easy to tweek the settings
Excellent machine. Only problem I found is that the wah wah pedal just doesn't cut it....you might want to hang on to your Crybaby.

Wah wah pedal leaves something to be desired
