This is an INCREDIBLE unit . Measuring only 12 x 6.5cm and yet it packs in the list of features below:-
The unit appears to primarily be pitched at home users and offers a 'one-stop' shop for effects.
The effects are mostly bias towards different types of distortion,
although there still are plenty of 'clean' sounds too. If you don't like a patch you can
edit it anyway. There is some background noise on some of the louder effects but it is
shut out as soon as the sound stops so doesn't detract from the overall effect. Obviously
in such a small unit there isn't a foot switch so you are unlikely to want to gig with
this. What it does offer is a headphone out socket so you can practise your choppiest
riffs and wildest distortions over and over without anyone even realising you're even
playing the guitar!
A feature of the Auxilary Input is that you can cut out the center track of a CD track, in many cases this cuts out the lead or vocals, if not completely then almost completely. Obviously this feature depends on how the CD was mixed when it was being produced. It's spooky how you can hear someone singing one moment, then press a button and the're gone! This feature gives you the chance to 'front up' your favorite band....coool......
The tuner is really neat. It show the note being played and a bar which is either above (sharp) or below (flat) the note being played. Really accurate and quick to use.
Overall then, a great little unit, ideally suited to the bedroom guitarist or home 4-tracker, quite expensive when compared to the ZOOM 505 , but great if you don't want to annoy the neighbours (or your nearest and dearest). Also the unit is so small that it easily fits into a guitar case pocket. The battery life is good (and is improved iif you don't use the LCD backlight) at somewhere around 10 hours on Duracell type batteries.
|I am planning on starting a patch database for the Pandora PX2 so if you
have any patches then E-Mail them to me and I'll include them (with a credit) on this
