Great Multieffect Pedal

José Meira, 20.03.2018
I don't have a lot to say about this Pedal. Overall is a good pedalboard, that does its job and it's really cheap. Just some down points about it:

The wah is a little "stiff" and it's a little too sensitive. It is not smooth when it's used slowly so it kind of loses it's funcionality. I don't know if it is me who can't use it or if my pedal didn't came lubricated enough, the truth is that I can't use it really well.
Unless you like the order of the buit in presets, you will have to recreate them in the place you want for easy access (at least I didn't find anything about that).

The drums are cool and it gives you some choices, the loop alows you to record 30 seconds, so it is enough for what I need, and there are some effects that work really well with a guitar. I use the pedalboard with a Harley Benton Beatbass VS Vintage Series, which sounds really nice together. The guitar I use is a strat-like and, as I said, it sounds good with some effects.

By being a pedal with so many features, the batteries die really quickly, they lasted me about two weeks with little use everyday (about 1-2 hours per day), but you can allways plug it on the wall.

Overall is a good pedal, I recommend if you are on a low budget ;)

Great little unit

Machete, 02.06.2017
use it to practice at home. It has an aux input if you want to play along to songs. The single guitar input is supposed to work with both active and passive basses. You could send the output to your headphones, or to other devices but in that case you may need a DI. I can see someone using this unit in small gigs, why not.
Unfortunately it doesn't have a direct USB audio interface to your pc. The USB port is just for firmware upgrades. You could also power this unit through USB but I read this is not advisable.

The first thing I want to say about the sound quality is that this unit is dead silent. I have an old Korg Pandora device that always has some digital hiss in the background whether you are playing or not.
This unit only gets a bit noisy when you crank up the gain to the hilt in certain patch combinations, but this is natural of the real pedals that it emulates.

The compressors, amps and preamps are very useable. The delays and reverbs are great. The weird modulation effects are for the most part unnecessary and gimmicky but it seems that all multi effect manufacturers feel obliged to dump them on their products for some reason. I would have preferred if they had added some guitar amps instead as extras. I'm still playing around with the distortion and fuzz effects to see if I can get a sound I like, we'll see.

This unit has an unlimited combination of effects and settings. You can chain up to 5 effects per patch, and you can tweak the order of each effect in the chain. You can try any crazy combination of effects. Most of the effects come with several editable parameters, like eq, gain, freqs, mix of wet and dry signal, etc.

It looks like the pedal controls volume by default, but each patch lets you choose other parameters that are available in the effect chain instead so that you can control them dynamically with the pedal.

The point is that you are bound to find something useful, you just have to tweak and experiment. What I don't like is that there are no user specific memory banks, you just have to overwrite any of the existing factory patches, but in any case there are a hundred slots available.

I found the user interface very intuitive when it comes to editing patches, I had no trouble understanding it, but I had to read the manual to know how to trigger the tuner and how to scroll through patches for example.

I haven't used the looper properly yet. The drum machine is handy for practising but to be honest the drum samples are not that great.

I think this will suit people wanting a small portable unit for practicing. People new to effects can get an idea of what real amps and stomp boxes sound like before they buy the real thing. I think it will also suit anybody that it's not too fussy and is looking for a ?swiss army knife? device at a great price.
