Pedal-sized effects unit with MIDI
« on: Time Format »

Which pedal-like effects with MIDI exists that'll preferably do:
 some basic reverbs, a big gated reverb, multitap-delay, chorus, flange.

These effects would preferably come in a single device, but two could be acceptable.
I can live without multitap delay, though I would prefer having it.
If it can do other effects, fine; just listing the most needed ones.

If a 9½" / halfrack thingy is what it takes, that would be ok too; just aren't aware of any, at least not in the halfrig list I attached in here last year (IIRC).
I case you wonder, it's for a [semi] programmable floorboard..

The only one I'm aware of with MIDI in that size is the TC Nova System.
The Zoom G3 and Boss GT001 which are both amazing units only have USB so you might need some MIDI<->USB converter.
The new Mooer Red Truck looks like a nice all-in-one solution with a real small footprint....

The Line 6 M series stuff does. M5, M9 & M13. I had an M13 for about a year, worked really good. True analog bypass if I recall correctly. Tastey delays and reverbs too!

Thanks for suggestions; about checking out the suggested stuff..
The MIDX-20 DUAL USB HOST seems usable for controlling the Roland GT-001 (and others).

EDIT: I'm getting quite hooked on the GT001:  (in German)

Well.. the GT-001 seemingly cannot be used alongside another preamp.
No send/returns, nor can both inst and mic be used simultaneously.
Nor does it look like the AUX-in can be routed through effects; it's purely for adding an external source while playing guitar.

So, it looks like I cannot use this otherwise cool device along, say, an MP-2, at least I can't have both it's internal preamp and the MP-2 active, but will have to skip using the GT's preamp, using it purely as an effector.
I was hoping to be able to stack up it's preamp section along with my MP-2, followed by the [GT] effects section; you know, AKA the 4-cable method.
Pity, because it has a lot of good stuff to offer..
