4 independet ch fx units

Can you guys suggest on FX units that has 4 independet ins/outs where I can rout each input to a different effect and to a different output?
To resume, an unit that can be used as 4 independent units...

The Orville does that. And I think so do Lexicon's 960L and the TC M6000.

Digitech made something like that a few years ago. The Quad 4 or something goofy like that. You could probably find one cheap but I have no idea what it sounds like. If it's like most of the other Digitech effects I've run into while doing live sound I'd probably skip it unless it's for extra stuff.

See if you can find a KSP8 to listen to ...... If not roll the dice a little. If you like the M1. I can't imagine your not likeing this unit. For around 2K it's a lot cheaper than getting 8 M1's and offers quite a bit of variety aside from a box full of useful verbs.

If however your setup calls for AES I/O, you may well be frustrated untill their AES option I/O card comes out madd

Other than that ... it's all good ....

The Ensoniq DP-4 ( ?) was a very cool unit.. it is older so you may be able to find a used one.. IMO it was a very cool piece of kit.

If you use a DP4 than you better have for gate/expanders to go with it. It is a noisy unit to say the least.

I had a Studio Quad for a while. At first I found it kinda useful.... that passed. Very thin metallic kinda tones to it never mind the noise. Quantity over quality was definitely the design motto for that thing. Run, run very fast, keep running!

Very true. Spring for the extra DP4+. It's much quieter.

I reviewed that a few years ago and the distributor was changed so they said keep the unit.

(Just telling you why I have one)

Dont! The powerpacks are noisy, are a wallwart, the effects are fairly flexible with routing but dont sound particularly good. A budget unit to be sure.

Reverbs are awful. Delays are ok. The slow gear is great though.
Harmony sounds munchkin, some of the analog delays are passable.

A couple of used Eventides like the DSP4000, DSP4000B or the GTR4000 if you don't need the digital I/O (can be added later) or any one of each and then you can create your own customized alogorithms. Or two of the new Eclipse models.
