I mostly use an OCD pedal and a Chorus and delay. They work great for me and I am pretty happy with the results.
My friend, however, has an old crappy “stomp box” that introduces lots of noise when recording so I am looking for any advise you other betabuddy-ers may have regarding a multi-effect board. The recorder is a Tascam DP-24 and is pretty good for what we do. We used to have a Fostex MRD-8HD, and it was OK but also introduced a lot of mechanical noise from the hard drive.
I don’t really want to get into the debate of single effects vs. multi effects (as you can see, I like the singles myself) but am just looking for a good multi effect box he can use. It should have good amp modeling since he is not going to use an amp. I just looked at a thing made by Tech 21 called a Fly 5, and it looks spot on for what he needs. I know Boss has a bunch and so does VOX. This will solely be used in a recording environment.
Thanks for any advise, experience and ideas!
