On paper to me the Peavey Invective sounds like an amazing setup. Its got a built in boost/gate, midi switching, etc... Something that would make this great amp concept even better, would be of it had built in modulation effects. What I don't want is to have anything in the 4cm with cables everywhere. What else I dont want are pedals everywhere. What I do want is to have one footswitch pedal, like the invective has....but be able to go from a gated/boosted lead channel, to a clean channel WITH chorus and delay with one press of a button, WITHOUT 4 cables everywhere. So either the pedal would have to act as a Mfx unit, or the amp would have to have the effects built in. The effects wouldnt have to be the absolute best quality, just good. Otherwise the way the invective is now I would be halfway there, as I would still have to run external pedals. I know it has the 9v supply on the back, but I still would need pedals. Ideally I would run one cable to the footswitch, and a second cable to the amp, and have everything I want in between without using a mfx in 4cm. Does such an amp setup exist? If not, why not? By the way, my main concern and purpose for this would be in a live situation. Its a semi-minimalists dream!
