: Hi there. I'm on an experimaental project at the time, and I plan to buy a multi effect unit to get a wider range of sounds. Beside all the common stuff such as chorus, flanger, overdrive, delays...etc... I also need synth sounds, an harmonizer, and why not a sampling tool. Is there something in the business that would suit to me ? The Bass Pod is cool but some functions are lacking. What do you think of the Roland V-Bass ? Your different experiences would be so helpful. Thanx.

I had the same problem. Actually was using a POD, the rackmount one, for a while, and while it was pretty good, it was still kind of digital-icky. I went to an SWR Mo' Bass. It has a built in Compressor, Aural enhancer, Overdrive, Sub-octave, Synth (with sweep), Chorus, and an EQ boost. It's stereo or Bi-amp, has wet and dry outs, and one of the best DI's I've ever used for live. The effects are all analog, and sound fantastic. If you get the foot controller, you can use the effects like a stompbox set-up, and you can also set up 4 groups of linked effects. I really like, and while it's expensive, you get what you pay for. I'm running it through a Bag End 4X10 and 18" sub because I've had bad luck with SWR's speakers. But the amp and its effects are awesome.
