I got to spend two hours with it, but will be working late as a result! Caveat: I'm a corksniffer re: acoustics, electrics, OD's, and some amps. I'm not so corksnifferish re: modulation. However, I've owned vintage 80's boss and ibanez, as well as recent stuff from sweet sound, lovepedal, retrosonic, DLS, and analogman. As well as some rack stuff from Lexicon and TC, which I never liked and never bothered learning because the digital chills had me by the throat. I really like this pedal. First impressions: - the overall tone is musical and full. Not aware of any digital chills. - it is deep: you can program all day (all life). Fast reviews like this are useless. Why do I do it? What's wrong with me? - you probably want a 3 way footswitch and an expression pedal with it (I have both) - there are many presets/user spaces:40! Twice what's in my Timefactor. - all the bases are covered, everything sounded about right - Trem sounds great - Vibe sounds better than I expected. I don't really like the seasick brigde of puke thing, but this box gives you a lot more options - it has a lot of freaky tones that could keep you programming all day for recording and for midi control. I'll do this a little, but I'm more likely to set up 10 presets I like that sound more like 60's-70's tones, and then tweak hairier sounds as needed when recording - Rotary is good, but the presets vary. - the fast/slow and expression pedals really stretch the sounds available. Anyway, I think it's da bomb. $399, geez. YMMV. Interested to hear what rack Eventide and Mod freaks think.
