I admit I am not a huge fan of the electronica music genre or whatever you want to call it, but more and more these days technology has encroached upon traditional music making. I do not know much about it, but a lot of friends seem to buy Digitech pedals and equipment. It's a proven brand with good support and that means a lot when you are putting your all out there in front of millions. Or even dozens.
Even if you are only having a good time with friends on your back porch or in your basement, better equipment will get you a better sound. Check it out for yourself.
