    I was playing around with my Korg Pandora PX5D and there is a patch called "NOTRITE" which immediately reminded me of Robert Fripp's guitar sound on Bowie's "Beauty and the Beast" track (Heroes album). A little research says this was a Brian Eno treatment through a VCS3 synth that he called the "Sky Saw" sound (from the track of the same name on Eno's Another Green World album). The Pandora patch is fun but weak, and was wondering if anyone knows any other pedals that can do this sound.

    I just watched a video about Eno's pre-ambient music and it made me go back and listen to all the great Eno/Bowie/Fripp stuff. Such great music!!
