Re: AW: elec gtr setup - to simplify

Well, it certainly helps to always buy used and never buy junk.  But even used computer hardware soon depreciates to nothing, whereas $25 is still $25.  Plus, all it takes is one hipster doof using your old piece of hardware and suddenly they're viable again.  That's not going to happen with the Atari sequencer.  Ever.

I believe I have three all-in-one multieffectors that people have given me for free over the years (Roland GP-100, Digitech GSP-21, that sort of thing).  No-one ever gives me analog pedals for free...

All of this is of more relevance if you're the sort of person who goes through a lot of gear.  There are plenty of people who play a guitar through an amp and a few pedals (at most) for decades.

True.  But I don't find the difference between say an Atari
sequencer whose value went from $400 to $0 and an effects
box that went from $400 to $25 very interesting as I plan
my future purchases.
