For the record, I am not saying that the QU onboard effects are horrible. They are usable. If they were the only effects I was ever exposed to, I would probably be ok with them. My ears have however been exposed to “better”, and so I have that certain level of expectation. I used to be anti-plugin, but there has been a lot of improvement in that area. In fact, the reason I use my Lexicon PCM 90 with my QU-16 is because I no longer need it as part of my DAW. I replaced it on my DAW with plugins.

Based on how relatively inexpensive plugins are today, I don’t subscribe to the notion that it is impossible to get that level of quality in the price range of the QU series.
