I traded a fellow TGP'er my Eventide TimeFactor for his Strymon Brigadier/Favorite Switch and have no trader's remorse. I never used 1/2 of the features of the TF and he was looking for pristine delays and more presets. Definite win-win situation. Of course, now I just dropped dime on a brand new Orbit Flanger from Strymon(just when my CC was almost paid off). So I guess you could say that they got me on the line. I hope that the Orbit is as good as the Brig. The Brig is just beautiful... I hope that the Orbit can cop my Hartman sound so that I can have 2 Flanger settings at my disposal instead of 1. 2 delay settings & 2 flanger settings should do it for me...
Definitely the "it" pedals right now. I haven't owned any as they haven't put out anything that I feel covers anything better than what I already have, but they seem like good stuff based on demos and reviews. If they'd take their Strymon engineering and design and throw some Damage Control versatility at it then I think they could really do some amazing stuff. I have high hopes for the future!
I own Blue Sky and Brig with an El Cap on the way. Love the sound, hate the price, hate the lack of presets ... I sort of want to try the rest of their pedals (Flanger, Chorus, Compressor) but I like to have a pedalboard with pedals from different manufacturers, so better not buy/try them or I'll end up with an all Strymon board soon.
@bsic: did you try it yourself? If not, how can you possibly know that you don't like it? Suppose no one told you that this AD-DA conversion is happening. Is there a chance that you would like it then? It's a sad thing to see this new prejudice about AD-DA conversion of the dry signal that appears nowadays. It reminds me of the "true bypass-rule" or "digital sucks" habits of old.
