i always need more effects :) just kidding....
i was just wondering if there are any interesting hardware multieffects
units on the market besides the fireworx and eclipse. lately i am much more
interested in boutique analog pedals like zvex ringtone, fuzz factory etc. i
think i will try those soon.
as for micropog. i have recently bought in NY. i use it for pitch
shifting the delay lines. for that effect, it is very good. but for chords it
is pretty useless unfortunately. it has a very organ like sound which some of
you may love or hate.
thanks a lot and best regards.

MULTI-EFFECTS & REVERB
multi-effects-i will have to agree w/ someone
who said: you have an eventide eclipse and lexicon mpx100 and tc
fireworks--AND YOU NEED MORE EFFECTS?
i thought the eventides where
the king of good weird effects? way out of my price range! my setup
currently: (guitar or keyboard-)zoom g2-digitech rp150-digitech
synthwah-boss dd20-(kustom 12 watt tube amp or direct to fostex
my cheapo set up allows me to get normal sounds or anything
pretty wacky if i need it. the zoom g2 has some interesting options w/ the
ring mod, and then it splits the wahs/ring/phaser/tremolo before amp, and
then gives you some other modulations options (chorus-pitch, etc) after, and
there are possibility of having 3 different delays going (good if you are
only using one effect devise)...so i think its a good sonic mangler, but i'm
not sure if i'd say it would beat an eventide unit, i mean it does only cost
as for REVERBS: i have minimal experience w/ a lot of gear, i
did like the reverbs on my digitech dsp256xl-it had a real 80's quality to
it, but i liked that. had a lot of spacey sounds. i also liked my lexicon
mpx100-thought the reverbs were good & all-UNTIL THE THING DIED ON
ME!!!!. didn't like that. from what i've read, it appears that the folks who
are masters of spacey reverb stuff (Torn, Fripp, et al) all seem to use
either the highend Lexicon units or Eventide units.
the funny thing
about this thread is i have been thinking about my reverb options-i like my
multi-effect pedal options, but haven't been loving the reverb sounds in the
units and have debated getting another rack unit for reverbs. just don't
like the space they take up. and i've also been missing the option of
reversing samples that my old dod d12 did so easy w/ the 6 sec samples.
always searching i guess....
