30 + 60 effects pre customizable.
Echo, Delay, Distortion, Panoramic, Pitcher, Chorus, Flanger
All the effects are stereo. Parameterizable effects are only from 30 pre-programmed effects, which limits a bit.
This is one of the leading digital multi-effects. So do not expect the Hi-Tech today. No rack for 2 cents, it has an entrance midday (the minimum) and a mono or stereo output. The output level is adjustable behind the camera.

UTILIZATION

Usage is fairly simple with no manual or handbook if you play an hour or two above. on the other hand, the manual is well if we want to know all the editing possibilities, because they are quite numerous.
The French manual is almost correct and usable, which is a feat for Japanese textbooks of 80 years.
The issue involves relatively simple menus.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are largely obsolete for most, but two things still worth the shot on this little machine.
The distortion is very special. It is quite disgusting if you want a classic distortion sound. But if you want to emulate Robert Fripp's guitar when he accompanied Brian Eno in the '70s, then, I only know this little machine that can make you sound Fripp.
The "pitch change C" with an electroacoustic will give you the sound of Roy Harper 80s (and he still occasionally used today).
Just for these two sounds, I keep this little machine that is irreplaceable.
The "Delay" are not too bad and very customizable, but nowadays, considerable progress has been made.
This is the digital prehistory and you have to use it wisely and use sounds that can be done with this machine and not try to run it through effects as understood today . And in this case, it is irreplaceable for certain things.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for purchase in 80 years.
It is very outdated now, but for the sounds I above (plus a third one which gives its type U2), I keep the beast and keeps it.
Note that there is an internal battery for the memory (a very standard 2032). To change this, you need a good soldering iron and here we go again for 25 years. This is the same as on synths like the DX7. Unlike the Korg equipment, the battery is directly soldered onto the board, then buy in a store component of a battery holder and put a piece of wire to replace the old.
