The answer is... Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl or Wombtone with the volume ramped, and an expression pedal stuck in its side. The beauty is, you can set the pedal as a clean boost, or you can blend in other parameters for added spice. The ramp knob even shapes how the volume behaves. It does crazy good violin type swells, and you can use one of the Chase presets as your swell setting, and have two other settings at your disposal. No stereo outputs, though...
Can the Vertigo do this do you know?Source audio's new one series dirt pedals would also do the trick, just configure one of the toggle switch positions (or one of the 2 channels) to the clean engine and plug and expression pedal in to control volume and you'd have a transparent volume control.
Or get something like the pog2 or some other slow gear clone and forget the volume pedal altogether.

The nemesis can be used as a volume too if you set the mix to full dry. Vertigo can be used to do volume, I think you can set the mix to zero in a patch to avoid having to have trem with your volume.
what if i set expression to control output but just put the depth to 0?Never tried with the vertigo, but it should, I set the lunar up with an expression to manually sweep the effect, so if you calibrated the vertigo to manually sweep through the effect (calibrate the expression, but don't turn any knobs, and it will will disable the LFO and use the expression pedal) and set the depth to max and use a sine wave and it should work like a volume, then you wouldn't have a tremolo effect like you would if you set the expression to control the output level.

anyway, i didnt realise you could manually sweep! ive been looking and hoping for a way to use wah but in stereo. if i can manually control the sweep of a phaser with the lunar that should be similar to using a wah pedal, no? i mean phaser and wah arent worlds apart in how they sound.
now im considering the lunar. shouldnt have been sleeping on this source audio hype
Thinking about it, any pedal that allows the expression pedal to control the volume should work. That being said, day warped vinyl must be the most buttery sweep goodness money can buy
I've been eyeballing the sy-300 for awhile now. Still need to save money for the LA Lady too though!
It sounds like you like the sy-300. How is it for everyday noodling? I have a vintage microsynth that I loved for a month or so but now it just feels like I can't find an excuse to use it.
It seems that way to me. I agree, any pedal that allows expression controlled volume will work. But having actually succeeded in spades, with the warped.... Not hypothetical- it kills doing volume swellsThinking about it, any pedal that allows the expression pedal to control the volume should work.
