"SIMPLISTIC YET POWERFUL"
I got tired of programming my very high-end vocal units, so I purchased this Digitech thing and I don't regret it: the complete line of effects are of great quality and hold enough parameters to get exactly what you want. The EQ section is very good for creating warmth or distance, or whatever you prefer. There's some freakish, toyish-like effects under the pre-amp section for which I can find other use but to entertain my little niece. However, it's clean, bright, and DOES replace my high-end stuff for studio use.
For this kind of money, having a compressor, pre-amp (WITH VERY USABLE VOCAL DISTORTIONS!!!) and freaky fx, equalizer with adjustable midrange frequency, modulation with all parameters you need, delay including analog and ping-pong types and different reverb types, not to forget ASSIGNABLE PEDAL FOR THREE DIFFERENT PARAMETERS AT ONCE, it's all you need. Ofcourse you can't expect a certain level of sophisticated, experimental fx-routing like you get in way more expensive gear - and what's this fuss about Feedback? Get yourself a decent microphone! Or turn down the volume! I do not get feedback problems of any other type than the usual I get with every other way of amplifying my vocals.
Well, first of all it Looks Real Good. Well, maybe a little toyish perhaps, with metallic purple shine finish, but it seems sturdy enough to last for a long while. Surely, you should throw it around or really smash the buttons, but it will survive a good "stumbling over" onstage alright.
The Wow Factor:
If you don't own a multiplicity of vocal effects already, this is a gorgeous must-have. Because of the sound quality, the price, it being noise-free etc. Would you want a series of pedals at your feet instead with all adding noise and all that? Nah. This cuty can do it all with brighter shine and it's versatile enough for professional quality studio demo vocals.
With all it's features, you can cover more than you will need. However, I'm not selling my high-end, way more expensive vocal gear - because it's limitations are in effect-routing, which is (logically) fixed. And you can only get 1 modulation effect at a time. But so what? I get high on (near) instant gratification and I hate menu surfing.
