Ibanez UE-400 Overdrive Version
There are a priori different version of the UE400. My rack has the following effects:
- Compressor
- Phaser
- Overdrive
- Stereo Chorus / Flanger
- Insert for external effects

The design is the same as shown in photo, except there is a stereo output for the chorus.

UTILIZATION

Setup is quick, a knob for each setting, difficult to easiest. I have no manual, but it's not really necessary.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are fantastic. I'm not a fan of multi-effects guitar in general, by their side "catch all", but here we have the essential and with a quality that outperforms much of current pedals.

I mainly use this with a multi SG and occasionally on synths to give history a particular grain.

The compressor is ruthlessly efficient, you really have to go easy on the settings. The overdrive is great for rock / hard rock, do not do with metal. Phaser, Flanger and Chorus are soft and mild, and bring a real depth (relative to the Boss pedals I've owned, the modulation effects are less violent, it's much more subtle and does not allow extreme settings).

OVERALL OPINION

I have this rack for a good fifteen years, and I certainly never part with it. I have owned a lot of pedals before (mainly Boss) and a multi Ibanez (the PUE5 if my memory serves, excellent pedal too). I also tried a multi-effects software recently, but not convinced (and then to live, not really practical).

What I like most is clearly the particular grain of UE400, very alive, I would even say organic. Can not find the same sound on multiple current.
The least that he is a bit of breath (it's analog). Missing just a delay and you have the perfect set.

I remake that choice without hesitation.

Ibanez UE-400 Overdrive Version
All old 80's Ibanez pedals herein in this large and heavy rack + pdalier.par against that of the picture is quite ugly, and lacks the support for the rack .. ours is more beautiful. (Say, mr web master, you can change the picture?) A scratch of my friends just bought this beast, (quite expensive, for that matter!) And oh surprise ... we have tried this w-end ..

UTILIZATION

A prsence and its not possible, especially on a big lamps. (Old twin reverb and (or) head JCM900). Every effect is super easy argler is 10 times better than all these critters ultra complicated numriques are, you will lose the feeling when you want to change the parameters a single dixime .. not to mention all your beautiful settings you can not find on scne but taient so beautiful to local rpt! this old ibanez is very effective .. It seems he had the time his brother ue 405, with effects more "subtle" introuvable.ou become expensive (2 to 300 euros)

SOUND QUALITY

Only inconvnient: he blows a few knobs and crachouillent. but a little disassembly + cleaning will make it good. (note the large cable + connection made between the rack and pdalier) I also recognized his inimitable and beautiful of all tube screamer from 83 1ST. (Yes, I am drummer, but I also know the correct sounds of scratching!) Only permits the rack pense.on I can also change the order of chaining effects .. depending on the mood of the DSIR or scratch! the compressor, its clear or drooling is a real massacre .. even with an old copy jim harley lespaul pourrave lying for ages in local, one has to ring Arussi SERIOUS!. (after removing the dusts and changing three strings.)

OVERALL OPINION

The sustain seems infinite, but still pretty pushing the SETTING THE gain and volume made a high note, you can ask the guitar (Ibanez RGX) a foam drink, come back, the note is still the resume .. guitar and turn down the volume, otherwise your hp explode .. (So ​​mfiance). delay put him a boss or ibanez (a pedal enough, no rack) or a wah ibanez WH10 jimi dunlop, vox, and you are the KING OF ITS BIG .. its the REAL .. Moreover, the scratch in question resell its two digital monsters numriques has 300 pRSET (Peset I did not say, but rather 400 euros) ... good short (only 5 or 6 REALLY use it) to to adopt its new bebte rtro ... but I know .. can be in three months he will be found again a novelty old!. but it is true that ue400 is masterful.

Ibanez UE-400 Overdrive Version
Compression
Tube screamer
Chorus / Flanger
Phaser
Outer loop

Fully Analog
The circuits are halfway between 9 and sries 8xx, most research.
2u rack with pdalier ddi

UTILIZATION

Trs simple matrix using a system that lets you choose the odre effects.
Each module is selected at the bottom and a master switch can bypass the effects.
No need to book.

SOUND QUALITY

Total class. The effect is warm and alive. What the pure analog ...
Excellent in the studio.
Ditto on scne.

OVERALL OPINION

I love her so much that I have 3 ...
Is not everything but for the classical effects is a must.
