Comments about Rocktron Xpression Guitar Multi Effects Processor:
I purchased my Xpression a couple years back through an online vendor. My previous experience with the original Rocktron Prophesy and MIDI Mate had me fiending for some high quality effects to fill out my stage gear (Marshall TSL 100 w/ 1960av, dbx 31 channel eq, sonic maximizer, bbe compressor, Morley bad horsie 2, Jackson rr1, esp ec-1000 fr). The Prophesy had more than I needed (distortions, ect) so I looked at this. Its described to just work with your amp. PERFECT! Just what I need. At least that's what I thought until I got it.
This thing is cheap. All of the knobs and buttons are thin cheap plastic. A few of them don't even work anymore, making it impossible to adjust any presets. Aside from that, the sounds aren't even good. Every time I turned it on my tone would be zapped straight from my amp. The only time I could get a decent workable sound is if I completely covered up my amps tone with loads of effects. A few times, during preset adjustment, the unit shut off and restarted a few moments later. There's no way this this should be considered stage quality gear.
The delays are probably the best thing the unit has going for it. With the MIDI mate you can get all 128 presets which would have been amazing if it wasn't for the quality problems. Reverbs and chorus are pretty nice, better than any line six stuff.
All in all it's a good idea that was produced horribly. If your looking for stage or studio gear, I would recommend something from TC electronic. If you are lookin for something to just jam with at home and aren't picky about quality, try line six or boss to save yourself some money. Stay away from this.
