Hi there! I'm a very enthusiast owner of the SwitchBlade GL. Just say that you can forget anything else. 16 ins and 16 outs totally patchable, including 4 relays to switch channels etc, continuos controllers, LFO, 16 channels MIDI matrix, computer control, and some others cool features. Audio quality is simply great. Technical support is probably the best i ever found, even before buying it. I'll take it with me even in heaven/hell when i'll be dead. If you have a quite large setup and/or if you want/need to change your signal path, from guitars/pedals/pre-amps/fx and whatever, it is definively the right choice. You can't find out a so flexible unit on the market. Ask Pete Cornish for a similar piece of gear, and sell your '72 Porsche 911 only to let him start thinking about it ;-) Btw - i'm NOT a rep of SoundSculpture! there should be my face on their website in the section switchBlade/users anyway hehe.
