It seems like every manufacturer has jumped onto the bandwagon with these. I've tried a few, but can't reach a conclusion on which to buy for fear that it will kill my recordings. I might play out with it once in a blue moon, too. I just want to be sure it's as clean and quiet as possible. Can anyone offer their advice on which budget-minded multi-effects processors offer the most value today? To narrow things down a bit (not less than 24 thanks,) I'm interested in reverb, compression, delay/echo, flange and phaser options. I'd really like some overdrive/distorion, too, but that seems to narrow the field a lot - only the Rocktrons qualify there, and I'm not familiar with their line. Do any of the current flock meet my needs with any dignity at well under $500? or $300?
