Pretty average, and honestly could have been a lot better.

The knobs control the amp model, cabinet type, or equalizers, depending on the mode selected. on first glance it looks pretty complicated, but actually its very intuitive. you can also choose from stereo or mono output , or configure the output so it can match the type of amp you are using.pretty neat.
Combined with my ibanez jem it sounds pretty wicked. grinding tones are easily captured with the two-amp "warp" combination, and you can capture almost any type of sound you have in your head with it(in my head, that is).korn heads look out!create a killer amp-combo rig, create another killer combination, "warp" both of them together and watch the shrapnel fly!its a long way from my old zoom 505...hehehe....i also play in a bar band in my spare time and it adapted itself nicely to song changes,etc.the acoustic models suck, though,(sounds like a rug was stuck in the soundhole) but compared to the other effects its quite easy to overlook.the noise gate is effective as is everything in it hahaha
On first try it would take a bit of fiddling around to get the optimum sound out of this thing.theres so many features i really didnt know where to start.but once you figure it out it wont be so bad.As with any multi-effects, it's only as good as how the user will program it.
Had problems with it after a year or so of use. 2 of the pedals wouldn't work, & one of the knobs won't respond at all. Had to have it fixed at our local dealer.
All I can say is buy one. You will like it.
It also comes with a cakewalk lite program.
I never tried to record my own ideas before and using the program has been easy and it works well for me.

I really like Having knobs to turn instead of arrows up and down.
It does not take batteries and that does not bother me.
Although it is not the more expensive digitech multi effects unit for the price it has most everything a musican needs unless you are rich and perform alot.
It does have a stereo output as well as a mono.
I use the unit with my Fender stage 160 amp and I like the way it performs. But mostly I use it with my computer and it gives a pro sound when recording.
I play blues and rock
My favorite thing about this unit is that it will do most of the work for you( other than volume control)
The thing about this product is that you can use the midi output and go to the digitech web site and upload patches of many sounds that famous artists use and you can hear the patches with your guitar before you upload then into your box.Great for the electronic dum dums like myself which grew up only using effects on your amp.
As always you will probebly change the sounds a little but it does not seem to hard to do if you can understand the manuel which takes some trial and error but it does not take to long to work out the bugs in your particular sound because when you upload the patches you like you should be close to the sound you want
I qwned a boss me 30 first and because I had never used a multi effects unit before I thought I would be happy with it but it sucked. Plastic junk I paid 219.00 for it and had to buy the ac adapter seperate. For 249.00 I got a quality piece of hardwae that is metal and the best disicion I have made and I am very happy with it. I use it everyday
