Re: which multi effects box ?

That's a tall order, but you can find the Lexicon MPX G2 used with a 
foot controller for about $1000.  That's what I paid for mine and I 
really like it.  It does an amazing amount of stuff really well, but I 
wasn't all that excited with it's over driven pre-amp sounds.  No 
matter, it's got a stereo effects send and I just put a tube pre amp in 
the insert and I was good to go.

Issues I have with it are that as a JamMan, it is NOT a JamMan.  I can 
get a single loop going that is synced to MIDI.  One thing you've got 
to also realize is that the G2's got X amount of processing power and 
when you use it all up, it's gone.  That means you might not be able to 
get all of what you want going at once.  You can get a lot going though.

Anyway, the time based effects sound amazing and the routing 
flexibility is really good.  For a looper though, I admit I pretty much 
always go to my Repeater for that.
