So what are your favorite finds this year? I'm looking forward to the Blooper, but that'll be a next year purchase. My top 10 this year, in no particular order Source Audio C4 Synth/Spectrum - First pedal I'd be comfortable replacing the Mutron III with. That's really all I care about in an envelope filter. Can it be set to respond to my dynamics without the need of a boost (with single coils)? Can it get the Mutron III sound? Those are my 2 requirements. Spectrum hit both those marks and then exceeded it all by a mile. Picked up the C4 afterwards. Really dig the low end it can add, also has a lot of features. Is super fun when paired with other effects. Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl MKII - I owned the Hifi previous to this (and still do). I fully planned on just getting this pedal for the lofi shootout I did, then getting rid of it right after. Well... I kept it. Others were right, for lofi sounds I prefer it. Sounds incredible IMO. One of my favorites in that category. Wampler Terraform - It isn't the end all when it comes to multi-mod pedals. Like all other multi-mods, there are things it does well and things it doesn't do quite so well. But, I went directly to Tremolo first thing to try it out. I absolutely love the tremolo they dialed up. Really useful, sine and square wave options. Duty cycle control. Control over stereo spread. All the bear bones essentials I want in a trem. Auto swell also stood out to me. It's the first auto swell I've gotten along with. Chorus was awesome. Flanger was great. Envelope filter was pretty good, auto wah was amazing in stereo. Decent modes were dimension, harmonic tremolo, rotary, u-vibe and phaser. None of them were bad, but compared to individual pedals I've got, they wouldn't be shining. Overall great effort. Wampler did a great job on stereo spread across the various effects. Empress Zoia - The gift that just keeps on giving. Community involvement was there from the launch. Lots of preset sharing, I love benefiting off other peoples creativity and work. I figured I'd get it so I could make envelope controlled...everything. Dialed up a few patches that fit my wants. Did some stuff that mimicked the EQD Aqueduct. Since then I've just been sitting back and being amazed at the crazy stuff others have come up with. From mimicking other pedals, to creating new and innovative ideas. My only problem with it is that every new patch is like learning a whole new pedal. It's one of those "I could be doing a lot more with this" pedals. So if that'll bug you, probably not for you. Chase Bliss Thermae - After enough coaxing from @oansun , I finally gave this pedal a shot. Put it off a long time due to the price tag. It was certainly worth it. Gorgeous delay! I haven't messed a bunch with the pitch side of the pedal, but just the standard delay alone is worth it for me. Really happy with this pedal. Wish it had a time knob Dr Scientist The Atmosphere - Far from a perfect pedal. I had many critiques. I'm not using this for standard verb sounds, but I do love the concept and love some of the non standard verb modes. I could play with the Aether algorithm for hours. As with anything with a clock control, I like cranking that down for weird effects. Overall it was still worth it for me. I tried the BitQuest as well after this, it is an awesome pedal. Catalinbread Adineko - I did an oil can delay shootout this year. The SA Nemesis was my favorite due to tweakability and overall sound, but the Adineko came in a close second. Really great dark, swirling sound. Sounds awesome on my Spaghetti Western board. Able to create great atmosphere. It's soupy. Chase Bliss Tonal Recall Blue Knob - I focused quite a bit on delays this year and this was one of my favorites. It's one of those pedals that just works. I also gravitate towards a darker sound, so it fit that mold nicely. Drolo Molecular Disruptor V3 - I own both the V3 and V2. Ala-cart effects. I'm just a big fan of weird, and this fits the mold. Also had surprises in there like Dynamic Vibrato that did an absolutely awesome dynamic chorus. To much to really summarize on this one, but I've done a ton of demos on the various modes. Check em out if you like weird. Walrus Audio Julia - The newest addition to the lineup. Been eying the pedal for a long time. I don't know if I can keep saying "I'm not a chorus guy." I have a lot of them. But it's still the last modulation effect I'd choose if given the choice. This one sounded really good and it had enough variety that it can work in many different situations. Paired really well with distortion. Sounded good from subtle to extreme, had a hint of flange sound on certain settings which I dig.
