Re: elec gtr setup - to simplify

I'll re-iterate: http://kunaki.com/Sales.asp?PID=PX00UCOVYL

My suggestion won't be exactly as Rainer's but under the same principle. 
Ditch all that rack and pedal gear and go all laptop. Reaktor is freakin' 
awesome, man!  Do it!  Just take the leap.  With a VST host, Reaktor 
as VST, Mobius, etc and as many of your favorite VST effects, plus a MIDI 
controller, you can eliminate all that hardware....no compromise.  You 
have to shake the addiction and habit of hardware effects.  Lose the 
Go virtual.

Move toward the approach I have now.  You walk into a gig with only your 
guitar and laptop. It is quite liberating, and will allow you to focus 
setup/hardware hassle energy on the music.
