I see things like this (I love analogies)... Buying a multi-effects unit instead of stomp boxes is like buying a Leatherman (tm) instead of individual tools.

You see, the Leatherman can do everything -- it can open bottles, cut stuff, screw and unscrew, snip wires, act like pliers, etc., and it's cheap. However, having a seperate tool for each job is sometimes better, because individual tools are more suited for their individual functions -- it's easier to snip wires with a wire cutter than to try to squeeze the Leatherman into a tight spot so the wire gets way down in the pliers where the cutter is. Most people can get by with just a Leatherman, but most professionals use individual tools... I'm hope you see where I'm going with this.

Did that rather dumb analogy help?
