This is a pretty ill piece of equipment, i got it after my teacher recommended it. it's got everything from phaser and fuzz effects to drums and basslines.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $150.00 (new)
Where Obtained: sam ash
Features:
Nice features, good for practicing or rockin out if you hvae no pedals (that would be me haha)
Sound Quality:
It sounds great through anything.. on the pandora, there is an extremly wide variety of sounds, so it's very versatile
Ease of Use:
I haven't used the record feature yet, but once you do it yourself, the thing is very easy to use
Durability:
So far it's held up.. and the color is just phat

Definitly cool. I have had it one day and I am going to mount the thing on my amp. I really like the programmed effects per artist. I wish there was some place where you can get other preset settings for other artists.
Model Year: 2000
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Musicians Friend
Features:
Not many buttons so it is easy to operate. can be AC powerd and this is a good thing(most peadals on battery die that same day you put the batteries in)
Sound Quality:
Small but powerful. For something for its size, it put out some mad sound.
Ease of Use:
Progammable to the max. If i dont like it, I can reprogram it. Very good feature. Other boards/pedals have a lot of presets and programable stuff , but this is basicly set up for presonal programs.
Durability:
Pretty heavy duty for a little guy.

Like I said, for the price and the amount of features you get, I don't think you can go wrong. It sounds great right into my sound card too.
Model Year: 1999
Price: $175.00 cdn (new)
Where Obtained: Not just another String store, Vancouver
Features:
For the price and the features its a great buy but I have a couple of issues with it.
Sound Quality:
I found the sound quality to be above average for just about all the presets. You can tweak this thing for hours too.
Ease of Use:
When you pack this many features into a box the size of a cigarette package, what do you expect? Once I got used to it it was easy but a little time consuming.
Durability:
Well, I've dropped a couple of times and it hasn't crapped out! Korg might have put 4 little rubber, non-skid pads on the underside to help prevent it from sliding around. I did that myself though.

sound good, tons of big tones and little package a great learning tool too due to its ability to work as a sampler or a drum machine. I wish there were a "whammy pedal". Although the Auto wah sounds are good I want the pedal too. so I guess my only complaint is I cannot stomp on this but for the ton-o-tone and drag-your-tone-anywhere ability, this thing rules
Model Year: 2000
Price: $199.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Chuck Levines
Features:
59 EFX, including 9 distortions(and they actually sound good), intelligent pitch shift, sampler, 4 types of chorus, phaser and flange, delay, reverb, cabinet emulater,and many more super cool EFX
Sound Quality:
Great sound, especially for the price although there are other EFX processors in this price range-$150 to $250- price range this baby has the best tones of the bunch, it may not be as good as indiviual tone generators but of the multi EFX units this thing rocks
Ease of Use:
pretty simple, every thing can be figured out with a little help from the manual, even if you are not the brightest one in the bunch
Durability:
small and plastic, so I do not know. and I do not want to test the issue
