    I hate Digital not 'cuz they don't sound the best, but 'cuz they limit your creativity!

    I hate Analog 'cuz they are so freakin' costly!

    Both were created by us.....just for the better

    I do not agree with the thought that digital limits creativity. IMO, it enhances what you could do with mere analog.

    I do not hate digital.
    I do not love analog.

    I like teh tones of few guitarists (or guitar heroes as commmonly referred to as).
    Unfortunately, their tones are generated by analog equipment.

    To get that tone (or simialr tone) I have to have analog equipment.
    Digital is not able to emulate teh nuances of those tones properly.

    Strictly speaking, this is also the reason why most guitarists prefer analog equipemtn and t00b amplifiers. And why LesPauls and Fender Strats are stil immensly popular.

    I rest my case.

    Both Analog and Digital are priced right.

    You have too many things in your life. You spend money on your girl friend, upgrading graphics cards to play games, buy XBox, and use fancy quotes as Music is my life.....Processors are priced within your budget. Your turn treble to 7 and bass to 6 and you nailed Slash, then you turn the treble to 9 and get the bass to 3 and you nailed Dimebag Darrel. With a few tweaks here and there, you end up nailing all of the most sought after tones in the world. Analog pedals are pretty expensive now, bcos you think it's a waste of money to spend beyond 20K. You also justify that you Digital can let you use 2001 effects at the same time b'cos you were used to using Pitch Shifter, Ring Modulator, Chorus, Flange, Synth, Phaser all at the same time and the new trademark YaYa effect really let you express your soul.

    If guitar really means to you, you would skip a beer to save up another 100 bucks towards your gear fund. You'd rather play Freecell and be happy with it 'cos guitar is better than gaming. You dont care about much tweaking but you know that you just want to sound good instead of nailing all the guitar heros that ever existed and even some of them that are yet to exist. A lot of small money saved here and there towards good equipments and you will still feel it's not expensive, bcos you wont spend on anything else.

    Its pretty simple for me actually. For drive and certain effects it has to be analog but for most effects digital will lead the way. Its a matter of taste actually...if you prefer old school guitar tones you'll like analog and if you wanna get the new stuff you'd go for digital. Simple is'nt it.

    Ideally i'd have both...but that does'nt work out well in all situations so you'd have to bypass either the digital or analog part of your pedalboard to get by.
    But i still say the best way to go about it is to try both, see what you like, experiment and see if both work well together.
