I agree 100%, and would add the EHX Blurst to that already great list!I'm super interested in:
Catalinbread Belle Epoch Deluxe
-- love the original BE, and this one adds a ton of cool modes and mod options
Chase Bliss Brothers Analog Gainstage
-- what I wished the Riverside was. Analog tones with mega preset options, blending, and expression control in a small box. Killer.
DOD Rubberneck Analog Delay
-- like a Carbon copy with way more options. Tap tempo is awesome. Cheaper than EHX offerings. Great aesthetics to boot.
-- my ebow doesn't get much use, but I still love that sound. This is way more convenient and adds much more usable features.
Empress Echo System
-- two delays at once? Parallel or series?tap tempo! Stutter mode, plus more engines sure to come! Whiskey in a pedal FTW
PLUS Sustain Pedal
-- functionality and features through the roof. Awesome form factor / design.
Source Audio Ventris Reverb
-- all the horsepower and layout bliss of the Nemesis in a verb. Two engines at once!! True spillover, MIDI, and new engines down the road.
All in all, that's a pretty exciting NAMM to me!
