I think the Strymon pedals features and format are just right. Ironically, the Dig might be their most complicated ('regular' sized) pedal and it's the only one I own, and I hate complicated pedals but find it easy to use. The secondary functions reduce the need for even more knobs, and mostly seem to be the "set and forget" type, or in the case of the Dig at least, just reconfigure what you have at your feet. i.e. tied or independent delays. Then the controls behave in the same way, but for that new set up. Regardless of what people think about Strymon, ('digital sheen' used by 'blooz lawyers' etc) I think they're approach is very sober. They offer maximum flexibility but only in the most practical ways and so don't cross the line into the unnecessary. To use a slightly odd analogy, Chase Bliss, or similarly complicated pedals, are like the first draft of a novel, or the first cut of a film. Everything including the kitchen sink is there and it's messy, dense and distracting. You need to take a critical eye and a pair of scissors to the overall design to leave only what is essential for a better experience. Satisfying but leaving the audience wanting more, to experience it again. Or in the case of an effects pedal, satisfying and limiting in just the right way to then leave your free to play.
