Normally when I see a "new" effect pedal being released, I spend some time with what I have to generate the same effect. I might not have a use for it right away, but one never knows what the future holds. So, I was reading a recent topic about the 30ms, which inspired me to build patches on different multieffect pedals, from the Zoom line up to the POD HD. Many of the Zooms, for example, have Detune with a predelay parameter of down to 0ms. Using it once will obviously give you one extra voice. Stacking two of those in a row can be done either in identical timings (5ms will give you notes at 0, 5 and 10, for example) or non-ratio delay times (stacking timings of, say, 2 and 3 will give you timings of 0, 2, 3, and 5). And, of course, many of the Zooms also give you many different reverbs to mix on top of that. The POD allows you to move two different detune/delay stacks to different signal chains in the same patch, and then send those to the appropriate reverb. And on the Beatle-specific patches, I can add amps/cabs which further nail the sound, on the multis which have those. That's just one example of a specialist pedal I can save money on. (In the case of the Zoom, the inexpensive G1on at $50 would have saved me $150 over the cost of the new pedal had I needed to buy the Zoom from scratch, but since I already owned it for other things, I saved the whole price of the new pedal.) Anyone else here who spends time instead of money on the latest and greatest thing?
