It'd be nice if I could find a boss multi that just has a few analog things such as a compression sustainer and delay.
Define analog. I guess anything chip based doesn't count, so even then the older BOSS COSM based stuff? True, the first incantations were a poor joke, but they cleaned up their act pretty quickly. The nearest thing to a real BOSS/Roland *analog* multi would be something like my GP-8. That said, only the first 6 FX are true analog circuits, the delay and chorus are digital, but very good. I prefer the sound of the GP-8 for the effects it does for the most part over the GX-700, but the GX has the option of defining the effect order, defining where the loop is in the chain, level settings per effect and on the loop send/return, more effects in total, bypass, tuner, etc.
But, realistically, what's wrong with a BOSS ME something? You mentioned considering a BOSS DD7/8 earlier - the DD stands for Digital Delay, right. Digitech also make some nice multi-FX pedal packages and often work out a fair deal cheaper than BOSS. Just food for thought.
