if you had to choose one multi-effects processor for your slo, what would it be and where would you put it (in front or in the effects loop)?

TC Electronic G-System or Nova System (which I currently use).

I'm still researching what might be the best expression pedal. Right now the Rocktron HEX is looking good, but switching to a lower audio taper might improve the Wah feel.

the nova sounds pretty good. can you use the nova to control a midi relay to change channels on the slo? i'm not that midi inclined (nor do i really want to be!).

I haven't tried it but I don't see that it would be a problem. You might check out the manual to double check.

Also you might first try it without the midi channel switcher just to see if you can get along without it.

I have practically zero experience with multi-fx but I spoke to a guy who compared the G-system to the new Major II (I believe it was) and he said the major sounded much better, less digital.

Also, check out the Glass nexxus; great sounding device and relatively simple

i appreciate the responses so far. i scored a carvin fx2 for 100 bucks, so i'll give it a go. it's a line-level processor with a 24-bit d/a. i like the fact that it doesn't do a whole lot and is 'set it and forget it', and you do it with knobs and a simple on/off footswitch. i really like simple and all of these mulit units are much more involved than i would like to have. i didn't get a slo to cover up the great attack and tone. i'm just hoping that an attempt to add some effects flavor doesn't ruin the recipe!

The BOSS GT-10 is cool. It has an "amp control" jack that is controllable via the pedalboard. This is killer because you can control channel switching via the GT-10 itself...no need for the actual amp footswitch. The effects are very good and if your amp decides to crap out on you,you have internal digital preamps in the GT-10 that will easily let you get through the show by running through the house PA. I prefer the effects of the Rocktron Xpression or the Lexicon MPX1 rack units though. The GT-10,however,is a more logical choice for gigs since it is an "all-in-one" preamp/fx box that will work fine as a backup.

Well if we are talkin' any processor maybe an Eventide DSP 7000, or maybe a lexicon pcm 90 or pcm 70, but those are out of production, and in the thousands....(the pcm 70's are killer sounding tho...)

My buddy upgraded from a g major to a g force, and the difference is night and day. The g force is waaayyyy waaayyyy waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy better sounding. Warm, crisp, articulate and really really rich, and thats just the 'verbs!! IT gets better as it goes, and its only a quarter of an Eventide H8000 ($5500.00), which makes it seem kinda cheap, right? so sign me up for one of those..........
