Awesome replies!

I have the Dim D on my UAD and have used it for years, but not in quite awhile.

I was almost convinced on the TC M350. Its layout, workflow, ease of use would be absolutely perfect for me. I then listened to a good few demos on Youtube and as James Lehmann mentioned, it was very plain and boring. I was pretty disappointed by this, but nothing stood out as being exciting at all, about it.

I was looking into something with more creative excitement. It was mentioned to look into the Deltalabs Effectron II and in looking up videos on that, THIS unit certainly excited me. The flanger, chorus, doubler and echos were perfect at adding movement and variation to the inputted signal and the infinite repeat (sampler) mode was really sweet too. I think if I am going to get any effects unit, it would have be something along these lines. There are no Effectron II on Ebay, or Reverb at the moment and in reading forum posts on it, it is only rated for -10, so apparently it is a real pain in the ass to get working on +4 systems, as it clips so quickly and easily?

Not high end, but the old Electrix units like Mo-Fx are easy to use.

So... "simple to use", "preset-based", "few parameters" and "exciting"?

You may struggle to fulfil all those criteria in one unit.

If you want really 'exciting' you need an Eventide Eclipse but that thing gave me conniptions in terms of the dizzying number of parameters and its menu-driven UI.

Is it a multi-FX you want? Or just reverb or just delay? This might help narrow it down.

Another unit I thoughts of was the old Roland DEP-5 - a bit noisy but a nice old-school Roland sound with knobs for all parameters.

Ya, I had a feeling I was causing more trouble then I need too!

Ideally, that is exactly what I would want, but I realize I am likely not going to find it, so with that said, I am going to have to make a compromise and get the middle ground, where cost, size and parameters are a nice balance.

I do have some very good models suggested and I can't thank everyone enough, for their time and help through all this. You have all been very patient.
