Brian Marshall (SubDecay Studios main man) calls the Vector an 'Analog Preamp'. I think that's somewhat of an understatement. What you're actually getting is 11 dirt boxes, all different and useful in their own regard, inside a very economical and easy-to-use interface - a medium sized stomp box with four knobs. If you're a dirt freak, you need to try the Vector.
"Sometimes you just want to get things done. Hauling multiple amps around isn’t fun. Tearing up your pedalboard to record a fleeting inspiration just slows you down. Enter the Vector Analog Preamp. It’s like eleven pedals in one, but without all the gimmicky features that often make “multi” pedals difficult to use. The Vector uses digital technology to control multiple gain stages and a full internal tone stack. This gives you unmatched tonal variation with easy to use familiar controls, Volume, Tone and Gain. The Vector won’t get in the way or eat up half of your pedalboard."
