What to Consider When Buying a Multi-Effects Pedal

Number of Channels

First question: How many effects do you need to run at one time? For the more utilitarian players who just need a little compression here or some overdrive there, a single- or dual-channel unit would do the trick. Now, if you’re after a longer chain and more experimentation, a beefier unit like the Line 6 HX Effects with up to nine simultaneous effects would be in order.

Types of Effects

Related to the first question and pretty straightforward: Which types of effects do you want/need to work with? While many digital units offer a wide palette of effect emulations, certain pedals like the Keeley Dark Side Workstation get you specific applications with a pre-selected effect roster tailor made to work wonders.
