Value For Money : Excellent
A priori all guitar and bass effects are arranged.

Edition on the unit or via PC (via USB connection Midi)

Oddly, no one has the choice of ranges of effects enable / disable, but "pre-patch" more or less complex tampering (no distortion + wah for example, or simulation of amp + ring modulator, or whatnot) ... Yet there is plenty to do even sounds Zarb, even if it is a bit Drout beginners to deal with other multi-effects. Nanmoins remains that aficionados (excellent yahoo mailing list, which I recommend), often used in Magicstomp SERIES 2, one for effects, one for simus.

Casing, connectors and switches strong enough.

Lack an audio interface.

UTILIZATION

Manuel not too bad, when the multi-effect adj tt, APRS 2-3 Bouzin learn specific maneuvers, we dbrouille alone. Configuration not so complex that has too long but direct to the machine for multiple effects, and even with the PC for that matter, since the software interface is also fairly ergonomic.

Stop followed by Yamaha: no possibility to see the bte evolve now, which is too bad, I hid it sr trsors not yet exploited by the firmware.

Communication protocol PC / machine not top-top (something strange while midi-USB), even if it is functional. There is a buzz coming from elsewhere in the ds that his branch of the PC while it is silent otherwise.

Otherwise, there's the latency of the stop (put something like 2 / 10 sec.) When changing patch is pnible to live. Can not be used before pramp. In the effects loop, I manage in the redirecting between pramp external amplifier, has maintained at least its bare for change is almost inaudible as a .

We can not do certain complex combinations, yet makes you want to.

No expression pedals and no possibility to assign an external.

Anyway, lots of little dtails a little boring, but not rhdibitoires pnibles put end end. The worst thing that could have a sense that evolve in part with the firmware ...

Otherwise, lots of positives too: IDAL format, three assignable knobs anything and everything is fine, switch on / off, or switches can be used either to change the patch up / down or assigned mode, the possibility of having a Stereo output, or output mode o is just with the sound effects, the other with simultaneous effects +, ...

SOUND QUALITY

Well, bein honntement it full of default, the bte ... But then: There's the sound. And honntement, I test the multi-effects (the old boss to the last zoom, through the BassPod, the Korg, Dod ...) well I can tell you that it's something that sounds the best by far. Point.

It's boring, all we want, but sounded HAIRY. Pramp the (true), the simus, compression, although the effects sr is excellent, has outperformed all others. Only small BMOL the pitch shifter, not bad on guitars but not bass adapted.

Good bypass.

The worst (well the better) in a while, your magictomp work as well with an electric scraper, with an acoustic bass, mandolin, violin, synth ... a voice!

In short, a way to use live because of the time limit with mute when changing patch, but really good trs (PSE and I my words) for recording.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for a month and a half.

I like (s) sound (s)!
I do not like stuff ...

The report price is good quality, but there is more than an opportunity (in the 110-120?)

I would do this choice, but in the IDAL, I: format / knobs / pedals and his cart-ct of the last Zoom ergonomics and software interface of the BassPodXT + Magicstomp sound.
