I've owned and used Korg AX1000, Boss GT6 and 8, Zoom G9.2tt, Digitech RP200 and TC Electronics Nova System. I liked the Nova best. Demos on my SoundClick page.

My current choice is the Digitech RP1000, I using it live and in the studio some, I avoided processors for decades but they are finally getting to where they are an asset instead of a gimmick.

Yes. The first one changes tone/resonance. The other one changes the actual note pitch. Pretty major difference.

As for the best multi fx - I went back to separate pedals a long while back - and I think I'll stay there. Multi fx are great for the bedroom, but for studio or live the individual pedals have a lot going for them.

Liam, where have you been man?

As to the OP, start off with the DigiTech RP225. Everything to cure your curiosity.

If you're looking for a multi pedal, you can't go wrong with a POD X3. BB uses a similar setup I think...

Lincoln Brewster gets his entire sound out of one of these and his Strats. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkT4tLiH32M]YouTube - Lincoln Brewster's Live Guitar Rig Set Up[/ame] starting around 2:30.

I've got a Korg AX3000G. It's pretty good, but the models sound a bit thin and digital. Nothing that running it through my Blackheart doesn't fix though.
