I checked out some of the sound samples, and it doesn't seem like anything that couldn't be done post-production, except for some of the volume swells maybe. But because of the tremendous cost, between the unit and all the other gear needs, I can't see it as more than a techno-geek toy. I see the advantage of creating crazy things on the fly, but it wouldn't be worth the extra time, and the awkwardness and discomfort of holding a pick with a cover and a cable attatched to my wristband. I could never get used to that. And some of those arpeggiated phase/tremolo sounds, I've been getting already. I just can't control them with each strum. I could so a lot with continuous control, though. And my digitech studio quad has dynamic modulators so if I pick harder I can speed up and slow down things like the phaser, chorus, leslie, tremolo, pan, whatever. But even live if you were into that stuff (I'm not) you could play to a click and set the effects manipulation within the sequence.
