I just wanted to follow up your problems with the MultiFX. Did you message Robert about it and was he able to help you out?
Hi! I sent a message to Robert, he said that he noticed the noise floor on higher volumes, too. He said that he is going to improve on that and he'll try to fix this in general on the future MultiFX modules. I disconnected mine from the bus cable and reconnected it again, which made the noise floor slightly better (there was probably a grounding problem,too) but you can still hear the noise, just not as loud as before. Guess I have to deal with it, it works pretty well for home recording but not perfectly when playing live because of the higher gain levels on my mixer.
Got my order with my Multifx, everything I hoped for so over the moon. The best bit of the order is the patch wires though - I was using the wire that came with the original Kickstarter machine, the purpose made leads are so much better to use, and don 't fall out as easily!
Most impressed with the MultiFX, not being an electronics wiz it makes me wonder if we pay too much for some boxes which don't sound as good... It fits really well in the AE ethos of reducing the cost on the non-audio areas - hence size, module fronts etc. More please Robert!
