The new BOSS MS-3 is out and I gotta say it's a very cool looking unit. It's not only a multi fx device, with plenty of stomp buttons, it's also it's a powerful multi-effects unit with 112 built-in effects plus a tuner, noise suppressor, harmonizer, and global EQ. Add in three switchable loops for your other effects pedals, and the ability to switch between your custom patches on the fly, and you'll be able to use your existing effects pedals in new creative ways. You can even use the MS-3 to change amp channels and interface with MIDI gear.

So you can use this thing by itself. It's small, will fit in a backpack with ease. Ad a wah pedal and it's pretty much a complete rig! Then you can add your own pedals in the abundant fx loops, pricier models add more loops. Also you can control all your midi gear and amps with it. In short, very handy. Especially if you have some pedals that you like and want to keep in your chain without doing the pedal dance every time you change from clean to dirty. Now you hit one button. You can stack 10 of the internal fx with 3 of the looped external fx. Lots of options.

If anyone is considering a multi from boss, I'd look at this series first. It's just soooo flexible than it can grow with you. It can also control your KEMPER if you have one, and add more FX to it, which the kemper could benefit from as it's on board fx are limited. Then add your fave stomps and bam, easy to control and won't break the bank like a custom built pedal controller with loops would. These are about $400.
