Psychedelic, I'm not sure. It's probably a fairly flexible word. I think I was worrying more about ambient effects and looking more at the reverbs and pitch shifters and comparing them to what I can do with the AM8000R. As I noted in my follow up, the Line6 units do some nice stuff, but they aren't as flexible in routing for ambience effects unless you can go 100% wet and they can't do the pitch shifter feedback thing. That said, you can just run a bunch of echo programs at various delay settings and get a nice lush background.
The math on the Eventide pedals has given me pause as well. The Line6 pedals are certainly a great value for the money. So, it depends on what criteria one is applying.
