I've been doing a bunch of looking and there are a LOT of multi-FX boxes out there.

What do you like have?
What do you like?
What is a steaming pile of poo?

Korg tonelab AX10G

It serves a purpose, fills a need. mostly trying out tones or combinations of effects etc.
for home recording you can't beat the value.
For performing most prefer single effects for quality and control of tone.

Depends on the situation...I use everything from nothing (except a cord), to a small collection of Boss stomp boxes, to the Line 6 Pod XT (love it). In the studio I use the Pod XT for almost everything (except acoustic, generally)...but I would like to check out the Boss GT-8. If I were to play live in a rock band (which I used to), I'd probably get a Pox XT Live.

I own a POD 2 and a Korg Pandora 4. For live playing I use separates: boost, delay and wah. For recordings -- especially quickies or scratch, the Pandora is so convenient, it's usually first choice. The Pod is good, but I haven't fired it up in an awfully long time ...

I have the V-Amp and I have seperate pedals. They both have their pluses and minuses...I like the V-Amp for clean tones or with specialized effects like phaser or flanger (since I don't have those pedals...YET!) and I like the V-Amp's reverb. I also have the Behringer Virtualizer Pro and it's AWESOME as well. I like to double up on the reverb or delay or chorus. It's a bit time consuming to set the effects but the results are nice.

Boss has all the effects I'd ever want on the GS-10. I had a V-amp but wasn't all that impressed, very artificial sounding. I also have a korg pandora 3 which is useful. I tried a Pod at the last guitar show I went to but it was difficult to get a decent sound out of it with all the noise going on at the time, so it wasn't a fair test.
The GS-10 is a great set of kit for recording direct to the pc, plus with a Boss you know its going to last as they are built very well.

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

I have a V-Amp, the original one, not the second issue. More often then not, I enjoy it. It has nice cleans and decent delay and reverd. My amp is a Fender and has a nicer clean, nicer reverd, and nicer chorus, but useless overdrive. That's where the V-Amp comes in, the distortion is good. Sometimes it'll have lots of highend which is probably just me hearing things differently, but with enough tweaking I get some nice sounds out of it.

Vacate is the word...Vengance has no place on me or her...Cannot find a comfort in this world.

I have the Boss GT-6. It's has great tone & versatility. I haven't checked out the new Boss GT-8, but from what I've heard, it's just as good as the GT-6, if not better.

I have an Alesis ineko i use for recordong sometimes ( mostly for mic reverb) but I mostly just plug into the amp, maybe I might use a Wah or delay, but mostly just reverb with my guitar.--the dog

Had a Korg PX1 and now have a PX4. New patches for PX4 are like hen's teeth. Now I have my Vox AD30VT amp I dont use PX4 as much.

45 years playing and still rubbish.

I use a V-amp. Don't love it but it sure is usefull. My Vox amp sounds better but after it's micced the V-amp's recordings are better. I also use a Boss GX700 (19" version of the GT5) but I dislike it somewhat. Tone sucking is beyond anyone's wildest dreams and the amp sims/overdrives are disgusting. Nice modulations though.
