"Can't beat this simple powerfull well priced processor"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
As long as it keeps working as it has I will continue to use it on our main PA.
Sound
Easy to understand. Easy to use. Most of the programs are useable just as they are. You can edit them surely, yet I picked this processor because I wanted something simple. Plain and simple. This works great and is simple.
Features
I truely wish it did not have an ac adaptor. I wish it would have been internal. Perhaps it helps keep the noise down if you keep it away from the main amps.
Quality
Plug and play, I need say no more. If you want to tweek it a bit you can. Yet there are plenty of usefull programs already waiting for you.
Value
Years ago this would have cost about 1k, yet competition is eating away at prices, and probably quality. Yet this seems to be of great quality for the price.
Manufacturer Support
Have not even checked if there are upgrades. The item works great right out of the box. Perhaps someday but it is fine.
The Wow Factor
It is a simple processor, what more can I say. All the knobs work great.

Active musician, teacher, some recording
