man o man, this Eventide buffer (time factor) sounds GREAT!! I need a buffer, and this one sounds so musical. The lost highs come back, but not at all hi fi, thin, or crispy. It's louder, warmer. I recently tested it vs. a bunch of others, and love it. Then just tonight I was wondering if I could lose the mini-looper that takes my Klon out of line (to take buffer out). So I put the Eventide in relay bypass (no buffer) and used the Klon buffer. Back and forth. Klon is fine, but more hi fi (mids dip, highs increase). ET just sounds warm. A GREAT buffer IMO.
