MOD Devices "MOD Duo"

This popped up on Facebook, I always fancied an Eventide H5 but managed to resist as it can only host one algorithm at a time. I felt this was too much of a limitation (you can get dual fx algorithms and multiple algorithms can be stored but each active patch can only run 1 effect). The MOD Duo, it appears, can combine a full pedalboard into a patch which makes it much more useful. I'd like a single pedal that could replace my pedalboard, not a trad multi-fx, they all seem to prioritise one family of fx, but a small pedal that can hold all my fx patches for whichever instrument. This also does looping which would make it a perfect perfect one box solution. Can anybody see any obvious pitfalls?

it's not cheap, but those that use it swear by it.

It is highly configurable, has lots of free official presets just an internet click away and has some built in synth capabilities too.

There are some highly skilled engineers behind its design.

I have had one since the beginning, it is unplugged sitting on the floor so not a great recommendation.

The general interface for setting it all up is web based and very good, the choice of fx units is also not bad, what is bad is that they are not great quality.

The HX effects would be a better bet for a multi fx board but if you really want a MOD I could do you a good price, I have the foot switch unit as well. Excellent condition, hardly used.

I was somewhat surprised you didn't rate the quality, as I know some of the people involved in the design and programming. These are not backroom boys!

They have a new model up for pre-order here. Looks pretty impressive, but they don't seem to show a price yet.

They've also upgraded their website generally with examples and testimonials too!

Theres nothing wrong with the quality of the unit itself, also the web based infrastructure for making patches is very good.

What I meant was that the quality of the plugins was not up to scratch when say they are compared to a Helix.
