I wanted to get the IV 120 watt model, but i hear with the bigger amps, there is an audio delay changing patches, which would make sound quality live, bad.


How many experiences have you heard or experienced with this?


If I was playing with a band, wouldn't this delay be drowned out by the band, and secondary guitarist, if the patch is changed and timed right, not at the last possible millsecond?

Timing is everything!  I never noticed it myself, but I guess you would if you were holding a sustained note or chord and changed the patch.  When I did changes it would typically be to change to a lead sound from a rhythm (or back), or to add a chorus.

Got this with my HD150.   I mostly change sounds about 1 sec before I want the sounds to cover it.
