    Just looking for suggestions on a multi-effects processor for vocals/instrument that can do multiple simultaneous effects but for a decent price (if one exist).

    Well, I have a Quadraverb, but remember it has no distortions on it. The tremolo is choppy at best, and the leslie emulators are decent at best. The stereo panning and stuff is nice. I got a used one for 100$ at Harmony-Central.com, but you might want to look into something a little nicer if you plan to use a lot of stuff. Digitech studio line is pretty decent for the price.

    I got a clean used Alesis MicroVerb 4 for $100 recently. Has dozens of reverbs, plus combinations with chorus, flanging, pitch shifting etc. Everything but distortion modeling.

    Nice unit, esp. for the price. Go look at Harmony-Central.com classifieds.

    I'm thinking there's a lot of fun to be had with Line 6 Gear. Once I get a decent mic, I'm going to try to pump vocals thru the tube preamp sim. and see if it sounds decent. I like using the reverbs to get that old "Bruce Springsteen-Nebraska" sound. (another great album recorded on a 4 track.)

    Nay, define decent price.

    Less that $100? - ZOOM 505 (9 effects
    at once, noisy, mostly
    for guitars)

    less than $200 - QUADVERB, MICROVERB
    (quiet-good for recording
    4/2 effects at once, good
    sound)

    less than $300 - line 6 pod (mostly for
    guitars, good sound, quiet

    and it goes up....

    Thumbs up

    TonyA,
    I was thinking I dunno bout $250 and less range. From what others have said I'll probably go with the quadraverb. I've found a few on Ebay at a decent price.

    I own a Digitech Quadraverb V2. Not that great. Expect, if you know what you're doing and what you're looking for, you can customize some really nice stuff.

    I've came-up with a really nice live wood room program which is hard to beat. I love it so much, it's hard not to put it on every drum track in every song, on every recording.

    But I've been working with this unit for about 4-5 years now and just recently came up with the program about a year ago.

    Check out the Lexicon MPX100
    It has some great proffesional verbs. And multieffects. Processing should be another unit. Don't use these reverb/comp dist units all in one. Nothing does everything well.
    The MpX unit has digital out too if you are going to digital all.

I get to have all the fun!! (however I do take time to record REAL musicians too)--I HAVE TO EAT ALRIGHT!!

    Cool

    Hey! If any of you REAL MUSIC recording people want to try a totally strange reverb effect, try splitting a signal up into 3 or more signals and add a different reverb effect to each one then pan them all over the place and hear what happens. Sounds prety cool on synth lines!
