best multi effects pedal?

I'm looking into buying a multi effects pedal. I need it basiclly to be able to do the works, tuner, chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, delay, reverb, wah, volume, noise gate, pitch shifter, harmonizer, etc. I don't care/need it to be able to do amp models or anything else, i just need a good multi effects pedal. I was thinking perhaps a digitech rp300a, expression pedal and 5 adjustable effect parameters compared to the rp200a, or the korg toneworks ax1500g. any of y'all have any experience with either of these?

Try the Boss ME-50 . But don't get your hopes up on any budget model pedal when it comes to harmonizers. Quality harmonizing costs tons of cash.. see Eventides products.

The Boss GT-6 might fit that bill.

I've used Digitech RP300 to record alot of tracks with and now I
have a Digitech valve FX i use sometimes. The digitechs really work
for me well, but you really have to get inside and tweak them up
for your playing style. Bad thing about multi-effects is the NOISE

How is the harmonizing on the GT6? It looks like the sort of thing I'm after but I would really love a good harmonizer.

i am not sure if it has a polyphonic harmonizer.
they say that the roland VG 88 has a polyphonic one.

Vg-88 or the GT-6 are the best for the $ IMO. ME-50 would be a good choice for a $100 less than the GT-6. i don't think $100 should stand in the way of good tone- go for the GT-6.

I think you should by a Boss GT-3. If you buy it second hand, it will be better. Is a standard now.

If you have more money, you can go to a rack, but if you want a pedal or something portable to a live situation, the Gt-3.

i have an ART Xtreme Plus. i love it. it does the bold things up there. i got it new about 3 (or was it 4?) years ago for $99, but, i think it's actually discontinued. you may try looking for one used to see what it's all about, but you can't have mine! :P

it rocks

It does, and it's great. No lag, no bum notes, but you have to have a hexaphonic pickup to use it. The VG-88 does work with ordinary guitars too, but you can't access the fancier functions.
