Cool Rack stuff! Digitech 2101, 1101, korg A3/2 or something else entirely!!!

Until recently I was going to buy the tc g major 2 but I've now decided that something like the digitech 2101 represents much better value for money. But I have lots of questions, hopefully some of you guys could help with some!

DIGITECH 2101 QS!

1. Digitech gsp 2101 is very old - is its huge versitility worth the pain it is to programme?
2. Any ida if the 2101's programmable whammy or arpegiator effects can do the muse map of the problematique sound? (random i know!)
3. Is the preamp of the 2101 completely bypassable or does it still effect tone?
4. Could i put my amp preamp in the 2101's effects loop like you can on the 1101 and swap between?

Digitech 1101 Q

main problem seems to be can only use one mod effect at a time, do users find it limiting? Is it worth the extra over the 2101 used? - love the fact it would be very easy to integrate into my rig, would the 2101 be as easy?

Korg A2/3 Q

Is it any good? Any info is hard to find! Im tempted to get it just for the mysterious ways sound but that would be pretty short sited! can it be bypassed? Does it suck tone? Can its preamp be bypassed just to use the effects?


+ What would you get! (and why!)

THANKS!


(Detail (not neccessary to read) - I would basically like to do:

guitar> pedals> use both amp and rack pre amp > rack effects > amp power amp

I know this is possible with the 1101 but can it be done well with the 2101 or A3? I am also wanting it to be midi controlled!

Re: Rack stuff! Digitech 2101, 1101, korg A3/2 or something else entirely!!!

i've had a 2101 for 15 years. i primarily use it for direct recording, and in that application, i have yet to find anything that can emulate tube tone as well as it can. as for your questions:

1. it definitely has a learning curve regarding the programming, but you should be able to get the hang of it after a week or so. most of the effects are quite a bit better than the ones on the 1101 (especially the reverbs).
2. have no idea, unfamiliar with that tune?
3. it will definitely affect your tone. i tried running it through the effects loop of my marshall vintage modern and vice versa and it sounded like crap. that is definitely something the 1101, eleven and axe fx have over it.
4. no, doesn't give you that option, at least not on the 2101. maybe on the 2112/2120 as the interface changed for these upgrades

1101
1.if you plan on using it with your amp, then the 1101 wins hands down over the 2101. the 2101 was designed to be your preamp, not to be the effects unit for your amp. however, if you want to use multiple effects at once, you may find the 1101 limiting. also, the quality of these effects is just not at the level of the g major.

I used the 2101 for years...great preamp and FX unit. On page 88 of the manual it shows you how to use your amp's preamp or another preamp in conjunction with the 2101

Line 6 Pod X3 Pro. with an FBV controller. Nothing better. And not terribly priced either
