You get everything you need in a compact footboard housing. Everything is very basic and plug and play. Guitar, X V-amp, phones/amp/hifi system and that's it.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use if you read the manual. Editing sounds is not as easy and fast as with several dedicated stompboxes, but you can get a good result if you take the time. And unlike a pedalboard, you don't lose your settings unintentionally!

SOUND QUALITY

Good effects, considering the price. Especially the reverb, modulation and pitch effects. Of course, the simulations are not very faithful but they do sound similar... From clean to high gain over crunch, you get everything. There is a one second latency (no signal) when you recall another simulation. The problem can be easily solved by creating two presets using the same amp but different gain settings. And who changes the amp during a song?

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for one year. I'm very satisfied.

The things I like most:
+ Value for money More than unbeatable: incredible...
+ Endless possibilities Spend enough time with the device and you'll be able to do anything.
+ The gain/volume/expression pedal.

The things I like least:
- Construction quality. Don't get too wild with it!
- One-second signal drop-off when you change simulations (can be easily solved).

If it gets broken tomorrow, I would buy it again. You can certainly find better products (from Line6, for example) but they are much more expensive.
