I was apprehensive about pulling the trigger on this but I'm glad I did! It is an analog multi-effects pedal with a moderate footprint. It sounds great, I think my favorite-sounding effect oddly enough is the chorus. Anyway, it is a simplified version of three EHX pedals, the Memory Toy, Neo Clone, and Metal Muff. It is really about all you need effects wise in my mind (maybe add a Wah pedal too). The Metal Muff may require some tweaking to get the distortion sound you want, especially if your actually using it for metal. The Metal Muff Section also has a built in Noise Gate which can come in super handy. The Neo Clone section has a depth switch which allows you two distinct chorus sounds. Actually one of my favorite pedals, give it a try.
