Plastic housing... but sturdy anyway.
- Distortion, overdrive, fuzz
Easy to use
All effects can be edited like on an effects pedal
But you'd better not have a too big shoe size...
Compressor: good but rather aggressive
Defretter: Quite awful
Octaver: very good but can only transpose one octave below (big organ sounds are not possible)
Distortion, fuzz, overdrive: Multi-effect processors can't give good results when it comes to these effects...
Humanizer: Good effect with comprehensive editing possibilities but quite unique sound (you won't need it every day)...
3-band EQ: simple and effective
Bass synth: Not convincing, very heavy sound...
Chorus: Excellent from crystal-clear to rich and psychedelic effects
Flanger: Same thing
Delay: Awesome, a real delay!
Reverb: Very good (with hall, room, plate algorithms)
If you want to switch to tuner mode you'll need an additional footswitch (e.g. FS-U).
Very comprehensive and effective effects processor with a good sound quality. You'll get it secondhand for a very nice price.
The overall sound color is good and only good effect pedals can compete with it.
LIKE VIRTUALLY EVERY MULTI-FX, WHEN YOU RECALL A BANK OR A PRESET THE UNIT GENERATES A SHORT LAG (not audible on stage and rehearsal situations).
It's also ok for guitars! ! !
I only miss a polyphonic octaver effect!
I bought it secondhand really cheap with the original user's manual and external PSU. I don't regret my purchase. This multi-effects sounds better than new processors. It sounds less digital. The sound has a digital touch indeed, but it's deep and reminds me of effect pedals!
