Big Sky for pristine reverbs but if you want out there bizzaro sounds then Space...they overlap in there slightly but that is the obvious difference..

should note if your a midi head..Space has Midi clock....

Owned both, still have the BigSky. The modes are more intuitive and a little less out there compared to the Space which makes it preferable for my uses. Most importantly- the buffer and analog dry through is vastly superior to the Space. The buffer on the space was a deal breaker.

Sure there were more wacky tones that blew my mind in the space. But for lots of shades of everyday day verbs from halls/plates/rooms/springs/ambient clouds all with unique and awesome modulation sounds that are unique to each machine- it's an inspiring but much more organic experience. To me the BigSky sounds like you're floating down a river looking up at the stars and experiencing the wonder of the universe while noticing the moss on trees and organic swells of life. The Space sounds and feels like journey through the vast cold and inorganic universe of light and darkness. There's a coldness, a scifi sound effect quality to many of the coolest tones, and it lacks warmth compared to the BigSky but feels more distinct as the effects are more out there and powerful.

This about covers it...for the record I have the Space and Im selling it to get a Big Sky if that means anything....

I liked the Space user interface much more than the Strymon (owned a Timeline, not a Big Sky). Banking up and down only takes a one-button stomp, and access to the hot switch and tap tempo was simple. Large display with more segments allows longer names.

I A/B'd the Space and Big Sky back and forth. Ended up getting the H9. Easy choice for me.

I would get the H9. Have the H9 and the Big Sky but if I had to choose one to keep it would keep the H9. Deeper reverb algorithms and the ability to use a lot of other algorithms besides reverb. The user interface is also much easier with the app. I would still choose the Space over the Big Sky if I was limited to just the factor pedal.

Between these two, Big Sky.

Never bonded with the Space. Cool pedal but it was simply too much for me. Big Sky on the other hand felt very fluid and familiar (Used to own the Blue Sky). Fantastic sound and great algorithms.

Both away and beyond anywhere near my reverb needs.
