I assure you, they have not yet created a pedal capable of hiding my deficiencies as a player.
I've got a Digitech GSP5 which I got cheap in the early 90's when a shop in London started flogging them off. It sorted out the early Edge wannabe in me and did all the stuff up to the Unforgettable Fire to a suitable level of facsimile. Using the delays to play 'Wire' and actually sounding plausible was a cool moment. Its got reverb, chorus, flanger, delay, distortion, EQ and some primitive amp voicings which I never used as intended. The distortion was great and really was the 'sound of war' when you ran it through a Marshall JCM900. The box still works but it does sound like a chip pan when you put certain combinations of effects into the loop, and it 'talks' to the valves if its positioned too close to the head when you crank it up.

I have none.
