    Re: Multi FX pedals? No need of amp emulation

    So I got to test the Zoom 70CDR and I think it is a good starting point on price features before going for the pricey but classy eventide H9. I will get the zoom and maybe in time I would try to by the H9. Thanks all for the suggestions.

    I could not find a mutli-FX only by Boss that includes mod-dly-verb and that from the picture is like a whole pedalboard itself.

    Hey thanks Mincer, this one looks more suitable to both my pedal board space and budget. Will listen to some demos.

Zoom support ain't gonna help answering much about it & would recommend the higher priced units instead.
    I know, I called them to get the some info, you know like understanding what can be done and what can't be done, so it sounds like that midi thing is there for some reason they don't explain (maybe firmward update?) and if you wana try a midi contrller with it you are on your own. I think if they made an optional model with midi with not to much price increase would be a top seller.

    You can do that in the Zoom G3, you can also program duplicates of the same effect in the same patch, at least until you run out of processing power. So you could have a long delay and a short delay in the same patch. With the V2 firmware you also have 6 effects per patch, not 3, and you can still control them with the 3 buttons in pedalboard mode, you hit the middle and left button to move left through the chain, middle and right to move right through the chain.

    The one thing I wish it had was a way to do the 4CM, I actually like most modulation effects in front and delays and reverbs in the loop. It has a sweet Univibe model that I really wish I could put in front of my preamp...

    Haven't used a Zoom product in quite some time but I always could get great tones out of their stuff.

    I know the Line 6 stuff I had you could turn off the cab simulations but I don't know about the amp simulations itself.

    I've used the Zoom G3 for this too, works well, just write your own programs without any amp emulations.

    That looks like a fine piece of equipement but it won't fit my pedalboard where my preamp is already there with a couple of overdrivers, wha and Decimator.

    I just found the Zoom MS-70DCR can be controlled thru Uusb-Midi, even Disaster Area Designs do sell a small controller that they advertise it can work with it but the product documentation does not mention anything about that port for MIDI. I am asking Zoom thru e-mail more about this but if that works that is gonna be my choise as the pedal is small and is more like what I am looking for.

    my GNX pedal has a "Pedal Board" setting
    where it just acts as a pedal board
    the five front switches just turn on and off effects
