Analog preamp + digital multifx in a 2U rack
Got more effects than you'll ever need in this unit

UTILIZATION

- you got to be patient when you setup the 2101, the effects chains can be very complicated: lots of paraméters, same effect can be used and re-used at any place in one chain. The manual is well designed and very helpfull

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are really good. 2 groups:

- analog (préamp): compressor (excellent), distorsions (transistor or tube, they both sound very good)
- digital (multifx): the wha is cheap but otherwise all the effects are great (you've got here all the effects you can think of, even the whammy). You can blend the ratio original signal/processed sound with the mixers in the chain. I only had problems with the réverbs: lot of people find it great, i don't (T.C. electronics reverbs sound 10 times better to me)

You can really achieve uncommun sounds ala allan holdsworth etc. Everything is possible!

OVERALL OPINION

- If you are fond of never ending tweaking, unusual but beautiful sounds, for a low price, go for that unit you won't regret it
- I have used it since 2003 but mine is a 1995 version. At the time it was a very professionnal and expensive device. nowadays a lot of recent processors give you a better sound quality, but few will give you the flexibility the 2101 has
- You can find a used 2101 with a single S-disc for 500 dollars or less, at this price, it's a steal. If you can, take the 2101 with 2 S-discs or even better: the 2101 limited edition
- I love this unit, but i already have my ENGL head for the distorsions and i only use my digitech as a multifx when i need delays or chorus. I don't really need so much effects and i never use more than 2 effects at a time, so i will instead get a T.C. electronics M350, which is way easier to use and sounds better in my opinion
