Hi guys, hoping for a bit of guidance here - I have a “traditional” stomp-box-based board running with my DSL50 - Drive, Distortion and wah into the front end, with modulation, delay and Boost going via the loop. I’m mostly playing Thrash/80s metal, so I like a gritty rhythm sound from either a TS808 or Boss SD1 into the DSL50 Red channel, I’ll add the distortion ( TC Electronic Fangs) for a bit more compression on solos. I’ll also use a footswitch to go clean occasionally. Always been very happy with the performance, but I’m looking to go to a multi fx for a couple of reasons - one is to simplify things, less cables, less power supplies etc. but also, I want the flexibility of having presets, so for instance I’ll want to add distortion + delay + boost for a solo, or switch to the clean channel & add chorus, and there isn’t a neat way to do this with my current setup (& I'm too old to be dancing on a pedal board lol). I’m drawn towards the Boss GT10, as I like the user interface, and have plenty of good experience with Boss effects. The FX loop allows me to connect to my DSL using the 4-cable method. I’d love to hear from anyone who might have a similar setup about your experiences, like for instance ; The GT10 should allow me to replicate my current setup, with it's in-built wah & dirt up front - is this right? And assuming so, how does the GT10 OD compare to my Boss SD1 or Ibanez TS808? I can use the GT10 for channel switching on the DSL? Plus channel switching as part of a patch? I’ve read plenty of reviews, a lot of people favour other similar units (like the Pod HD500, Line6 Firehawk etc.) for their Amp modelling capabilities, but this will be of no use to me, as I’ll be bypassing amp models to use the DSLs preamp, the GT10 will be used in 2 blocks basically, front end gain, and FX loop modulation/boost. I also like the idea of downloadable patches and desktop editing - I’m not a complete luddite, but I don’t like devices that suck you in and distract you, I want to be able to set it up and just play. If anyone here has a similar setup, and might share any pros or cons, or maybe suggestions for similar units in that price range, either way I’d appreciate it.
