I've heard good stuff about the EH Synth stuff too. There are tons and tons of pedal demos on Youtube- that might be a good place to start.

 

Watch out! I started messing around a bit with effects to fill up the sound my my three piece and ended up with seven pedals. :o

Our guy uses some blue pedal I've never heard of for the "You and I " intro. Sounds usable.

I use to use some giant silver Korg piece ( G2 ?.... G4?) for J.Paul bass synth stuff and it works great for recording when it's mixed-in in post but the low end vanishes for live stuff PLUS they are around $300 on Ebay nowdays

Akai Deep Impact.

 

The issue with these things are twofold. Tracking and latency. Some track great but the latency is maddening. Some are tight but can't track consistently. That's unusable live. The Akai Deep Impact ssems to get both of these issues right. So, it's not just a question of picking one that sounds cool. And honestly, they all sort of do the same thing. But getting it to work in a performance environment? The Akai.
