    I haven't bought any multi effect units in 10-15 years
    back in the early 90s I tried most of the popular ones and despite what some claimed, they all jacked with the dry signal when used in a series loop.
    I either went with a line level mixer like the mini bradshaw unit or a seperate wet/dry amp/speaker setup.

    I am interested in a nice sounding delay, warm and some light reverb, possibly some chorus for clean, that's about all I want...

    is there anything out there now that fits this bill?

    thanks advance

    The no longer produced Rocktron Replifex has a analog route that runs along the digitally converted signal. The unit allows you to mix how much of the processed signal you want mixed in with the unaltered tone. See the Rocktron site for the manual, in there you'll find the route mapping, where you can see what I am talking about. This is what makes this unit sound very analog as compared to processors that convert 100% of your signal and then reconvert it back to analog.

    Yamaha UD-Stomp maybe? Great delays and choruses and using the delays you can make some nice reverbs, but perhaps not all simultaneously (although 2 at once certainly works)

    I will bump for a fantastic unit - however it's not a rack . . .

    Rocktron multivalve too- basically a replifex with a tube warming stage (you can defeat it).

    I don't think any of the Yamaha floor stuff (DG, UG) lets the dry signal bypass the digital conversion. They do sound pretty good though.

    +1 for the Rocktron stuff. I'm a long time user. But I believe if you set the Hush for post all the signal goes through the D/A converters. Setting the Hush to pre allows some signal to remain all analog.

    I know that the GSP 2101's have a wet dry mix control, but I don't know if everything goes through the A/D. Also the front half, I know is all analog.
