    A Flint Sized pedal with Delay and Verb. Digital Delay and a really dreamy verb. I like the smaller more simple to navigate pedals. Let Strymon know by liking this post. If we get a thousand likes :) then they may consider it.

    I'd be into it if they were independently switchable.

    Although to be honest, I doubt it'd replace the Neunaber + current delays (Moog MF-104M Super Delay, Jack Deville Dark Echo, El Cap) on my main and small boards.

    I will be buying a DIG to pair with the El Cap on my small board, though. :D

    a delay reverb would be cool ,a tweakable phaser,or a crazy time based effect a la EQD Afterneath or Boss Tera Echo

    Yeah it would be great and surely it'll happen.

    Would also be keen to see them do a "mini" line, like an El Cap in an MXR-ish sized enclosure, minus a few obvious features ofcourse.

    It would be great if they made a pedal that wasn't 50 modes of standard boredom and 1 mode of something actually cool and interesting (until it gets overused because it's the only interesting thing about the pedal).

    Sounds like a user problem, not a gear problem.

    Hello Mr. Sunshine! Is there a pedal brand you really like that we can insult? Please let us know. Thanks

    Still would like to see a convolution reverb from them that would allow you to load your own impulses. The epsi is the only pedal I know of that does that, but the user interface is really kind of annoying. That and it has a not so transparent buffer (although it sounds kind of awesome stacked after fuzzes somethings).

    Also an octave pedal would be neat.

    AMT has an IR loader, but I don't know if it'll be an improvement on the Logidy from your perspective.

    I think they will do this and eventually they will do mini sized pedals like the old favorite switch.

    You better keep it cool and all positive on Strymon threads, some people can't understand what "subjective" means and there will be a lot of butthurt.

    Not sure about 'butt hurt', but I don't think this is a very solid critique of Strymon pedals. Not by a long shot.

    Some people might find them over-stuffed, a bit fancy, expensive... but Boring??

    I'd like to see some sort of POG or something similar from them. I'd imagine they could make something killer

    I don't get the desire for an octave unit, I have a few EHX, Pog and Pitch Fork I can't fathom more.

    when you're switching between presets all the time, yeah any pedal can get boring. i have the same thing going on with my mobius and dd-20. then i tweak a little bit to break the monotony and remember how cool both units are.

    The same could be said in spades about dirt boxes and delays.
    Like any product on the market, there are those that see room for improvement... Both in functionality and features.
    Personally, I'd like to see Strymon make some sort of pitch/octave/synth box with the hope that it would have improved tracking over offerings by other companies, and control over the timbre of the voices it generates.

    Oh I agree with you, just because it's not for me doesn't mean it's not for someone else, I just can't fathom anything new coming in that realm.

    I just don't get it when people want Strymon to not be like Strymon, in favor of every other pre-existing flavor. Reminds me too much of the PRS haters who want a PRS to look like a PRS but sound like a Gibson. If you want a basic delay, there are plenty. I think Strymon excels at being Strymon, which I have never found to be boring-just expensive, or I'd own more!
