Man this thing just sounds alive! I can only imagine it in stereo! Both channels are just great. I tweaked the drive levels on both channels to my liking and switched it from high gain to low gain. It sounds perfect. Now I can forget about settings and just play! I'm gonna have to run it through my Princeton and Champ very soon.

Do you find it noisy at all?

I thought it sounded amazing, especially in stereo. My problem was that it was also noisy...like an old big box DMM kind of white noise. I sent it back to PGS and am waiting to hear back if it was just that particular pedal or not. By all accounts, it's supposed to be a studio quality pedal, with a very low noise noise floor.

I'm hoping it was just that pedal, and they can send me a quiet one. It's one of the best sounding pedals - of any type - that I've played.

Has anyone compared the Neo Mini Vent to the Strymon Lex? I have the Lex, but am still very interested in the Neo.

I don't find it noisy at all. About the same as the Lex.

I have both. The Mini Vent just sounds bigger to my ears. The "B" channel on the MV is about as close to a Leslie as you can get IMO. Very woody sounding on the attack. The pedal has great dynamics.
