Sound Quality

I just used the headphone output, so far just experimented with the distortion sounds, and got a reasonable sounding one for a box of this vintage. I expected it to be noiser than eIt's no "COSM" modeling processor, although...

Reliability/Durability

Haven't used it long enough for it to die...the jacks are mounted to the back panel, so the chance of a jack coming off the circut board is minimised. Front panel is a little flimsy, and my #2 knob has a parameter 'drift' problem.

General Comments

-I have to use this unit for a while, so far it meets most of my needs.

-Been playing for 20+ years, own multitrack recorders, synth modules.

-Can't buy it again new, have to search the want-ads for one, and they don't alway pop-up.

-STRENGHS: a lot of effects in a half-rack, having settings for bass make this unit a big plus, knobs on front panel, effects loop, level control on panel to adjust effect level,

-WEAKNESS: product support, better tracking on the pitch shifter (there's an annoying delay), crytic effects names. Wall-wort power supply.

 

-LACKS: no noise gate (at least I couldn't find one), "up/down" push button inputs for momentary switch control. Better control over the distortions, not arbitrary numbers for distortion settings, phantom power for MIDI footswitches.
