    yeah, very close title indeed mate... I was then impressed a lot with the movie name, and I like to use it as some specific comparison measure. Honestly speaking, I'm great fan of spaghetti western, especially when there is Clint E. Pal face, grumpy cowboy conquered my heart 30 or more years ago, and never stopped watch them, even he turned itself into inspector Dirty Harry, like some nice guitar pickup name...

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.

    Admittedly, my application is recording centric, but going a bit further even than multi-effects units, I'm finding digital plug-ins to be every bit as good as anything else, especially ones that are IR based. In fact, I played around with demo versions of Scuffham S-gear and Positive Grid Bias, both of which are amp simulators. Though neither of them can reproduce the tactile feel of a good tube amp (though the Scuffham comes scarily close), they actually sound very good in a mix and I'll wager that the overwhelming majority of people won't know the difference.

    More importantly, if it sounds good, it doesn't have to remind anybody of any vintage gear - good is good no matter how old or new it is.

    Couldn't agree more...
    Although these days I find myself going back to "basics" more and more...
    For over 20 years I was into Tascam Portastudios and multieffects, I had a couple of Digitecs and a Boss ME20 and a ME20B, then I thought I'd be more "modern" and got a Mac PowerBook with Cubase, later on upgraded to iMac and Presonus and got right into plug ins, etc... but now for recording I'm using mainly guitar via a couple of effects into mic'ed amp (actually, I usually end up using the cheaper SS amp, rather than the tube...) and record and master on my trusty Tascam 2488 using my old Sennheiser e840.

    I used a digital multi-effect processor live "once." It was a disaster. I hit the wrong button and was in the wrong patch. Had to hit the button again to scroll through 30 presets to get to the right one again.
    I think they are great for a practice tool, or for home recording, but as the only outboard effect(s) live I was not happy.

    I think some implementations are better than others. I used the TC Nova System for a while - granted, while recording - but you could set up your own presets in a pretty easy to use way. Of course, a lot comes down to setting it up, and that can take a lot of time. I do believe the Line 6 units can also be set up for live use pretty easily. Still, its definitely not as easy as a pedal that only does one thing.
