Re: Digitech PMC-10

Just for your information,
Be careful with the PMC 10 it is a grat device but not reliable i finally
got rid of it after crashing on me so many times.Hours and hours of
programing for nothing and i am not the only one. I´ve talked to many 
who also got rid of it because of the same reason. The guys at Digitech
weren´t that helpfull either. But check out the new Yamaha MFC 10 i believe
it does all the PMC 10 does it is new and Yamaha has a good reputation for
Good luck!
