    This is clearly a Seek Tuner

    I don't know for sure how much current a typical delay draws, but I'd guess a bit less than 100mA. Some can run on batteries. I know the Princeton chip is rated lower than 100mA. Delays and reverbs are notorious for low battery life, however, so you're right about them drawing a bunch of power.

    Maybe he's preemptively attacking Schumann's comeback with a comprehensive synth pedal.

    Schumann has nothing to fear from me. Although he may wish one of these new things I'm making, so his wallet may have something to fear. Or maybe we can barter. 8^)

    Ok, My second guess is a signal oompher. It oomphs with your signal. :dunno And half of the knobs are just for show. They do nothing.

    Ha. Well done sir. You managed to agree with and confirm his statement without actually commiting to whether or not this new monster is a Delay

    What nobody seems to notice is that I cannot disagree with anyone's guess. Think about it.

    i can't get this thing out of my head!!

    ok, here's what i'm hoping for:
    footswitch (L)- tap tempo
    footswitch (R)- bypass/on
    minitoggle (L)- dotted eighth, normal, thirds
    minitoggle (R)- effect type selection (white noise, lowpass filter, highpass filter)
    knob1- mix (blend guitar and delay)
    knob2- feedback
    knob3- blend (blend between modulation sequence and delay)
    knob4- sequence speed

    the additional enclosure would be a sequencer that controls the modulation of the delay... but with the blend knob, you can decide if you want the effect heavier on the modulation side or on the delay side. i know i'm not correct, but it'd be fun!
    the colored LEDs still blow my mind.

    its multi effects, he's created many others (delay, phaser, etc) that work in the sequencer format, and you can pop in a card to do any two at a time, or maybe more, with a built in SHO unit

    What if it is a multi effect!!??!?!??

    The box with the foot switches might be an on/off switch, a "step through" switch to choose your effect (like the ringtone switch) and the knobs and leds could be indicators and separate volumes for each. The other box would be controls.

    Switchable by plugging in different, prebuilt circuit boards.


    If it's this, or even if it is something else entirely, I will do two things: 1.) **** my pants. 2.) Make room on my board.

    yeah, i thought about one footswitch "stepping" through different effects like the ringtone as well, but then i asked myself "self, why would such a footswtitch need an LED?". my head hurts.

    In other words, it's the ZVEX Seek and You Shall Find!

    If it doesn't need the LED, the LED can be eliminated.

    I agree, it don't look cheap...

    Since it's from Zvex, it's gonna be cool, no matter what. If it's a delay, with tap tempo, and other things... I'm certainly interested.

    Perhaps the LED (bypass) changes color to reflect the active mode above.

    it looks like it will turn any effect or combination of effects that come before it into a seek pedal
