Re: When does it end?

The more modern multieffects units allow for individual effect
switching within a patch, as if you had virtual stompboxes.  The boss
GT series, the Lexicon MPX, Roland GP-100, anything made by Rocktron
in the last ten years, and so on.  You have to have a MIDI controller
than can send the right sort of commands, but it makes a big
difference in the appeal of those boxes.

There's a reason Zoom stuff is so affordably priced.
