I got this unit just two weeks ago. I live in Perth, Western Australia and I bought this pedal from a guy in the USA. I paid 65US dollars and by the time it arrived in Western Australia it cost me 190AUS (~95US).
What I like about this multi effects is its sound, bottom line. Great warm tube sound for that SRV, Hendrix tone. Also, there are a wide variety of patches on the net to get the sound that you want. It comes with 4 pedals with one bank switch which makes it easy to select your different effects.
LCD display is great and programming is quite simple. It took me only about 1 hour to get this pedal up and running.
What I dont like about this multi effects is that when you change to a different effects the signal is lost for just under half a second. Apparently, most of the other older multi effects do this and I really dont like it. There is a way to circumnavigate this though. You can press the pedal swith half way down and put it into bypass mode then soon afterwards press the pedal all the way down. This way you dont lose the signal. Furthermore, you can use individual mode which alows you to change between drive,modualtion and ambience effects within a patch programme.
Pitch shifter is a little "sqeally" but still sounds ok. The pressure pedal is fairly good, but not as good as an expression pedal. This can be overcome as the unit has a dedicated port for an external expression pedal and volume pedal. I believe this unit is now superseded by the AX300G and AX1000G.
Unit is tough and durable as it has lasted the test of time (3 years). Every thing still works on this unit and nothing has broken, and if anything the pedal has probably improved as the pressure pedal seems to be quite sensitive. Other reviews may say otherwise about the pressure pedal.
This unit sounds great! I am fairly satified with the sounds and tones that come out of this box. I play with a Fender Strat through a Marshall JCM900 and it gives me the sound that I want. You can also get a bass guitar sound, pipe organ sound and accoustic guitar sound out of this box which makes it very versatile. I used the crossfire patch to play to some of SRV's music on the stereo and it sounds very close to the tones that he used to use. I would recommend this unit for its sound alone, but may be look for multi effects that doesnt stop the signal when you change effects. Maybe the Korg AX1000G doesnt do this.
This pédaliier ago while a series of effect available;
compressor 3beq, wah, distortion, hyper resonator, AmpSimulator, exciting, chorus, flanger, phaser, vibrato, tremolo, delay, modulation, bender, panner, pitch shifter, stereo delay, reverb
full of other derivatives of delay.
Digital technology and no connection afternoon, just audio.
the grip is not obvious, it is necessary to bring the manual in french (I'm lucky to have).
Moreover, if someone needs pdf I.
editing sounds is easy.
I bought this pedal new model in the nineties if I remember correctly.
I sold it and I always regret for the tone of the times was a little pink floyd psychedelic, I bought a used one, I use some effect as the distortion, overdrives, the delays, reverb, I play a set of sounds to me, but soon realizes that it's all digital.
what I like most about this pedal is that you can set a name to the effect that you just created chain. I use it with a charvel st custom and ibanez am70 BC period too.
I do not like the pedal that serve wha wha she is special hard but you can add an external expression pedal, but is also useful for vintage stuff, so I have preferred to buy the VOX V847.
the first model I had I used it for seven years and that the little meadow for about a year.
I bought my boss ME70 that I sold, not terrible at all.
I repeat, what I like most about this pedal is that you can set a name to the effect that chain just created.
I do not buy it back today a multi-effect that's enough for me, and I prefer the pedals alone.

chucky o soleil's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Available for effects, well it was distortion (of course!) From vintage to high gain, reverb, delay (several models), tremolo, wah, etc, etc. ....
it's digital, of course!
no connection noon, just audio. I use it on my PC and no problemo!
The grip is a little gavante, but over time got used to it!
edition of the sounds is still simple: you turn the large knob to a sound that comes more or less than desired, lean on Edit and then you can trick it to perfection!
the manual is in English medium so accesible for poi!
The distos ...... hmm ... in fact it is stupid to say, but it depends on the amp! but still generally not worth a good analog pedals (I said good, huh!)
but they are still correct!
sounds clear: there is the strong point of this pedal, they are beautiful (yes, really!) a little reverb here, a little delay there, I am satisfied with the outcome still
other sounds: generally satisfactory although not worth a good analog pedals (I know I'm repeating myself, but it's to emphasize the relative quality of this product!)
How long I use it? in the year of 2007 through this writing it has been 14 years that I used (and yeah), and never had a single problem! I have my distortion pedal is coupled with an EQ side ... and that's it. for everything that is its clear, delay, sounds exotic (There's even a space, race cars of the factory presets lol) then there's no picture is what pedals!
