No, only rarely would all FX be used at one time, but the onboard loop serves two (primary) functions:
1) placing all of the effects BEFORE the volume knob on your guitar at unity-gain. This is the key to controlling dynamic effects like a Mu-Tron (although you can approximate by using a vol pedal at the end of your chain)
2) being able to turn OFF all effects at the flick of a switch on the guitar- no matter where on the stage you happen to be standing. Get me outtaheeeeere!!
