Sometimes those multi purpose effect/modeling pedals get too crazy for the average Joe.  I had a RP350 and RP500 from Digitech.  I just couldn't get use to it.  I also have a pocket pod, but I have the same problem with those too.  Luckily its got some really sweet presets.

I started to get a Line 6 HD300, but since I have a Line 6 M9 and a M5 not to mention a TC Electronics Nova System thang, that's enough for me.

I'm still a little weary of using multieffects stomp boxes... Although, Line 6 does sound rather sweet.

I do like the Line 6 concept not only for the tone, but for what appears to be ease of use. I like the analog type interface (knobs) where you can see the settings at a glance.

My Boss GT-5 drives me crazy at times with all the menus. I've even considered selling the GT-5 & GT-3 and my amps. I am basically an apartment dweller now, and don't forsee a change in the near future. Even the low output amps (5w) are probably too much volume for me to get away with.

I have other effects pedals I could use (MXR Phase 90, Line 6 Roto-Machine, Moreley Dist/Wah/Vol) if I had an amp modeler, but I hate having to deal with all the patch cables, and the expense of a pedal board. The HD300 might be just what I need. Any input guys?

The HD300 would probably fit the bill for you. If I found myself going back to an apartment, I'd go that route.

I'd say go with the HD300. It has killer sounds, and it's easy to operate. You get a volume pedal, wah pedal, audio interface, looper and pedalboard - all in one convenient unit! Now I sound like a salesman, but I stand by it. These things are tremendous value.

If you're not looking to emulate different amp/cab's, would a M5 or M9 work better?

The M5/M9 have the same effects as the HD300. The difference is the M units can't be used as an audio interface into the computer - they are meant going into amps only. If you use the M5/M9 straight into the computer, it would sound pretty bad.

The HD units can do both.

The M units are still cool though, the way the knobs are setup - more like a regular pedal than the HD units. So I find them faster and easier to adjust when playing live, compared to the HD units. Hope this makes sense.
