If you take into consideration that you have heard mediocre reviews of the GT-6 etc, consider this, any floor based mulifex unit is not going to be as nice sounding as a we made rack unit, one space constraints limit how much can be put into a unit and therefore you end up with a so-so sounding machine. Your best bet is get a G-major or Rocktron unit like the Intellifex etc... and get a midi foot controller to control parameters realtime on the fly. You can find the G major used, for around $300-$400 depending on the source and many times that price will include the controller. If not, I have the ART X-15 foot controller that has 2 treadle based expression pedals and can be switched around to work like a stomp box array where you can select each effect on or off, or use it to change patches. its a little more work, but WELL worth it in live situations.I use my controllers to add or reduce reverb on solo patches or control a leslie cabinet rotor speed (simulated) in some of my clean patches.
You can control ANY parameter that is adjustable, delay time, repeats, mix, compression, noise gate, delay ducking, phase rates, you name it, with the expression controllers.
This is really going to be your best bet.
