"needs more relays to isolate effects"

Overall: 2.5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
add another $10 worth of relays to fully isolate the loops, and you have a highly usable piece of equipment. otherwise, you better have the "right" type of equipment to use with it or else you are in for a dissapointment.
the relay configuration lets the signal still pass to supposedly bypassed effects. this KILLS your tone with most stompboxes. with some other types of equipment, it is not as noticable, but i was wishing to consoldate my four overdrive/distortion/fuzz effects and this switcher cannot do this effectively.
if the loops were better isolated, the features make this a cost-effective box. another thing they could add (with increased expense) is the ability to react to midi controller commands. maybe a couple of more loops would be nice. maybe in a "bigger brother" product.
they need to use about twice as many relays. the configuration as is makes it useless for most applications for which a lot of people will want to use it. with just a little more engineering, it would be SO much better.
if you have equipment that won't load your sound, it's not bad for the price.
The Wow Factor
i cannot use this box as is. maybe in some other application it's useful.
