The Electrix MoFx kicks ass for live effects tweekage. Tap tempo, lots of blinky lights, everything has a knob/button (no presets). It's also stereo. I used to use one with an ESQ1 live for ambientish freejazz stuff- worked really well.

Oh, boy, the ESQ is the shit. I traded mine in for an SQ-80, the same thing with a disk drive, more waveforms, and polyphonic aftertouch. It is my favorite synth ever.

I went and bought a G2. Easy enough to send back if I don't like it. Will report. I'd like to think that inexpensive DSP technology has gotten unsucky enough for a fussbudget like me to actually use.

Oh my. Diogo, I got my G2 a few hours ago and haven't stopped playing it since. I love it. An absolutely solid, quiet, awesome-sounding unit. The delays are MARVELOUS. And I'm sure purists will scoff, but I think the amp and cab modeling is pretty great too. Nowhere near as versatile as a POD or ToneLab (my personal fave) but quite nice. The JC120 model is just lovely.

And the most surprising thing on the whole unit, IMHO, is the "digital fuzz." What a completely whacked-out sound!!! The way it decays into hideous spitting is an inspiration. I made a dozen new patches in an hour and already have basically reproduced every single thing I do with my entire pedalboard and live amp.

EXCEPT the Memory Man's ability to put vibrato on the delayed signal only. Nothing else seems to be able to do this.

Anyway, thanks again!

Glad you like your G2!

This thread helped me. I plugged my aforementioned SansAmp into the input of the Boss SP202, and voila! ring mod!
