The general configuration is it simple?

Finally it is easy to use, plug it tampers with the pots and look for the sound you want.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Yes, it is clear

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?
Simplistic is updated on the net Flash


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
After the bonus dolus marketing, we must admit that it is not in the studio finesse. This is done to live and it works well. I use it to replace a rack in which I trimballais a preamp, reverb and eq for evening coffee kind concert and small scenes.
The interest is in the transportability.
When I bought it, offered a TC with MP-75 (with remote control. This mic is wrong with my voice but can still help out.
So perfect in repeats, effective scenes but unusable in the studio, there are much better plug-ins.


How long have you use it?
four months

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Vocalist Live (the singer who sings now

+ + + Portability, efficiency, stand on my pedalboard guitar.
--- Not super late in the settings but for pop / rock, it does the job.

How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good considering the excellent and convenient side with the microphone provided

With experience, you do again this choice?
On! I'll buy a second for the second chorus.
