The REX50 is a remarkably versatile, compact multi-effects unit that can be used by guitarists, keyboardplayers, home recording enthusiasts, mixing engineers — anyone involved with music. It offers a selection of 30 top-quality effects including digital reverberation, gated reverb, echo, flange, phase and a group of superb distortion effects. The distortion effects actually combine distortion with other effects (reverb, flange, etc.) for extraordinary sound processing versatility. In addition to the 30 prepmgrammed memory locations, there are 60 “user memory locations” which can be used to store your own edited versions of the preset effect programs, so you can recall your own effect creations anytime they are necessary. The REX50 is also MIDI compatible so you can select effects via remote MIDI control.

The Ineko effects are great, lots of character there. I had a Nanosynth for a while and the effects on that seemed really bad, quite strange for Alesis. They...
