    I'm thinking about replacing my delay & modulation effects and going with multi effects processor. I've been checking out Zoom G3 and host of others (line 6 HD series, Digitech RP1000, Vox ex) . What I'm looking for is the ability to bypass amp simulations to and basically use the unit for delay,reverb and looper. I'm planing on just using amp simulations for late night jamming with set headphones but also I want to be able to incorporate my two favorite dirt boxes. I'm big fan of M9 I've been checking out HD 400 I just want the ability to bypass the amp sims.

    RP1000. It's very flexible as far as routing and turning on and off the amp sims go. Modulation is better than the Line 6 stuff. The Vox is very limited as to which effects can be combined together.

    Actually I just had chance screw around with HD 400 really liked it a lot. The amp sims sound a hell of a lot better than what they use to be. Looks like they incorporated the same effects thats in M9 into HD series. I found them to be kinda of pain in ass to adjust. The salesman told me that it was a lot easier to adjust them in 500. I'm actually really considering the 500 now. The one thing that bugged me about 400 was the gain and comp in same block. You don't have ability to move effects around which really sucks.. I wish the local stores had Zoom G3's in stock. Would love to hear one.

    I didn't realize that they had Zoom G5. I guess this is big brother of G3.. So many choices.

    +1 on G3 for you. I have an M13 that I really like and have had the G3, M9, and Nova system.

    I'm going hold out and wait for G5. @ $100 more I think its a good value. I also like the fact that it has exp pedal with a booster..
