review :: Paul Furio
A nice, inexpensive but functional effects box. Better quality effects than your Alesis Micro/Midiverb effects, plus the ability to configure the effects in a variety of ways. Features true independant stereo processing, so it can be used in the 'two mono effects' way, or on a stereo pair with chained effects. Probably the best feature is the 11 band vocoder, which combined with the other effects in this box, makes it well worth it's price.
I wish the 2 digit LED display offered more information, but for another $100 you can get the S-200, which is essentially the same box with a detailed backlit LCD display. It's a nice box, it's programmable, and it gets the job done.
