I have been using multi effect units for as long as I can remember, and have used just about all from the major manufacturers, Alesis, Boss, Digitech, Korg, Line 6, Vox, TC Helicon (as opposed to TC Electronic), Zoom, and more. I've had top of the range from most of them including the Pod HD and the Boss GT10, (not the 100). This beats them all in one major area as far as I'm concerned, and that is the overdrive sound. This pedal is a keeper!
I should say I have also kept the Pod HD500 which is useful for certain gigs direct through a PA system. However it is hard work getting a decent sound with the Pod when using a valve amp (amp modelling off of course). With the Nova system it's simple, plug in, a couple of tweaks to suit whatever guitar you're using and you're away.
There are a couple of tips that I would like to pass on, there is no bypass so, if you have, or can get hold of a bypass pedal, (preferably dual bypass). Set the input gain to unity on the Nova, (using setting F9-3 with the boost on) so that your natural guitar sound and the sound through the unit are the same. I would recommend this procedure with any multieffect unit, it's surprising how much some of them colour the guitar sound, and how much tone can be lost, this is one of the main reasons why I've been through so many multi FX units, buying from the internet you only have other peoples reviews to go by. Friends have let me borrow gear, (and set them up for them), which has also been very helpful over the years. Unfortunately, only very rarely do you get an unbiased review or You Tube clip, on the internet, you have to try things out for yourself. The Nova system is, quite simply the best out there (for me).
The distortion and overdrive for Rock and Blues are brilliant quality, If you're into Heavy Metal, Zoom or Line 6 would probably be more your bag. The delays and reverbs are pristine (if you want them to be, or as analogue as you like if that's what you prefer), the modulations are good but they do engender a little volume loss. I'm not a chorus fan, I prefer a subtle pitch shift effect which the Nova does perfectly.
The boost function is very useful (I set this at about 5db). The G switch is also to be recommended as the patch switching on such a small, (comparatively) unit could be considered a bit limiting.
All in all, I thoroughly recommend the Nova system.

Since I got problems with MIDI and the GT8 it was time to switch to a new multi effect.

The Nova System is the first multi-effect where I cannot hear a significant change in my sound if all effects are deactivated. An absoulut pro argument. The effect sounds are pretty good (especially reverb & delay), but the factory presets are...as usual not perfect.

It should be noted that patch and effect changes are done on the release of the switch. At first this seems to be an odd feature, but after some time it makes perfect sense, since the stored effects are loaded in background and the patches are faded in between.

Every effect has a wild bunch of parameters to play with:
For example it is quite cool that the direct response and room response of the reverb can be deactivated (leaving only the response of the diffuse sound field as an effect), resulting in a synthesizer like effect.

The FX-chain is fixed, only 3 configurations are available:
1. Serial --> all effects in serial order
2. Half-Serial --> alll effects in serial order, except of Reverb/Delay, which are in parallel
3. Full parallel --> all effects in parallel order.

One might say that having only this three options is not sufficient for a modern multi-effect, but in live performance I don't feel limited.

The biggest con is the handling:
The menu structure is not very intuitive, also the naming of many parameters is not very clear.

pros:
+ astonishing effect quality
+ effect change on release of the switch
+ midi switching latency free
+ compact and robust

cons:
- effect change on relase of the switch
- no Wah
- no on/off switch
