Need some advice on buying a new processor.
I currently use a Zoom 505 II (yes, yes, do laugh) and for my limited knowledge of the stuff, it allows me to fiddle with a bunch of settings and get some neat sounds. Problem is, it sounds like rubbish when I use it live (what? a Zoom 505 live? yes, laugh a little more). It's a decent effects bundle for a beginner in the area, but I think it's time for an upgrade.
I don't know much about how processors really work, so here's where the advice bit comes in.
I play a lot of Green Day, blink-182, Coldplay, Punk-Alternative-Pop-Rock. Essentially, I need something that has a nice crunchy distortion, a decent acoustic sound, and some flanger. If I come off as a total retard in the area of effects and processors, it is because I am.
My budget is around about 10 grand. I use a Greg Bennet Samick (LP). Do keep in mind that I need a little education on what all the buttons and knobs do, and I need something that has a good live sound.
Also, Korg AX10G vs Zoom G2.1U?
