    How is this pedal different from the current DMM? In other words, what's the big news/big deal? I'm not being a smart ass...I genuinely want to know.

    Thanks.

    It's in the newer, smaller, pedal-board friendly casing. Finally EHX has been releasing their pedals compact to replace those MASSIVE casings - the Little Big Muff and Stereo Pulsar made their way to my board for these reasons. The POG is still on my board though...can't wait until the make a full version in the newer casing.

    Anyway, I'm assuming that's all that's different. That seems to have been the case with most of the other new releases.

    Thanks...that was my guess, but I wondered if there was something else different under the hood. The big question (for me) is if it's analog and it sounds the same. Time will tell.

    You can't turn the knobs with your feet though.I thought some of you DMM users did that.

    Actually, I think you probably still can. I do it all the time on my micro Pulsar and Little Big Muff. Some of the knobs in the middle of the row might be harder to reach, but the knobs are still easy to turn with your foot. Unlike those on boss pedals.

    It sure is smaller, but I need to turn the knobs with my feet, so I'm out.

    Still too big. It should be two rows of knobs.

    I am all over this, one less wall wart (by the looks it takes 9volt) saves space on my pedal board and it seems like the Chorus Vibrato might be a knob instead of a switch which means more versatility.

    if it is the same size of the new Hazarai model it is an improvment...

    if the tone remains the same though...

    IIRC the current DMM is actually no longer in production. Or is only very limited production. There was talk about the BBD chips used in the pedal no longer being available.

    If this thing has the digital heart of the SMMw/H I'll pass. The SMMw/H is a fine pedal...it's been a great digital delay for me and the looper, once you get the hang of it, is very useful with it's long loop time. BUT (and it's a big but for me) the control are very noticeably attached to a digital brain inside the pedal. Where Boss goes with rotary encoders that click and a display on the DD-20, EHX went with a pseudo-analog L&F on the SMMw/H and all I can say is when you start turning the knobs it becomes very apparent that everything under the hood is not analog. There are weird jumps and strange responses as you move the smooth, analog type knobs through their motions. They should have used notched knobs for all but the mix knob on the SMMw/H because the response is definitely discrete when you twist the knobs.


    Rant over.

    If they use the digital heart in this they should rename it because they're just going to tick off legions of DMM users and fans by trying to pass it off as a DMM. Nothing is quite like analog when it comes to knob fiddling responses.
