    I know that the question seems a bit silly with all the great harmonizer/pitch shifters out there, but the thing is i'm looking for very specific points in this pedal and i haven't found one besides the ps-5 that has them, i really like my ps-5 but i want to upgrade to something better!

    1. Small size, if it's a killer pedal no more than the small strymon pedal size, but preferably a standard boss size.
    2. Pitch shifter capabilities in major and minor, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 1 octave, 2 octaves, above and below.
    3. Smart Harmonizer.
    4. Whammy capabilities compatible with an expression pedal.
    5. Obviously better tracking, and sound!

    I can't find this on any small pedal in the market at the moment, not even the Ps-6 which is lacking some features.

    Any recommendations, is there a pedal out there that can do all this in a small enclosure?

    What about that new whammy mini pedal? The Riccochet? I think it does all that.

    The PS-6 does have better tracking and is a quality pedal! I have been using one on my band board for over two years now and it covers a lot of ground.

    The problem with the ps-6 are the intervals, it doesn't have all of the ones i need :( otherwise it would be perfect!

    I haven't delved deep on that one, but i remember reading that it doesn't have all the intervals available, am i wrong?

    You're correct @hippieboy, I just checked and it doesn't tick quite all the boxes. Though how one contextually would use a major/minor 6th interval is beyond me!

    Yeah, there's a little sound i like to make with all the intervals... otherwise the ps-6 would be perfect!

    What's that mod??

    It's a fun pedal, one of my neighbours doesn't like it, but I do so screw it! Rock On!
