Would you sell your Space for a Big Sky ?

Well do I sell my Eventide Space for a Strymon Big Sky or be content and look for other gear.

I love the Space it pairs perfectly with the Timeline and the Space sends midi clock something the Mobius or Timeline do not (though they will follow it and pass it through to the next pedal) not sure on the Big Sky yet.....(if it sends midi clock I may be doomed)...G.A.S.

I prefer the Space. More control, greater algorithm diversity and I just prefer the way it sounds.

Realistically, the space is probably fine....... But.... We always feel the need to change, and won't be satisfied unless we do change....

I sold my space for a big sky and I'm happy with the switch. I prefer eventides user interface though. Bank switching in a live situation with the big sky can be cumbersome without an external switch. Conversely, the slight lag between preset switching on the space was a major annoyance for me. I much prefer the sounds I can get out of the big sky. The differences are apparent, strymon always seems to have its own thing going on. I own a timeline and a timefactor and keep both on my board because they cover a lot of different ground. The same can be said for the space and big sky. If you don't end up liking the big sky you can always sell it for another space.

I sold my space for the big sky. I'm very happy with it. I miss the dual reverb and the distorted reverb.

No: TremoloVerb, HotSwitch, treating FRZ/INF as part of the decay time spectrum rather than a separate (momentary!) function.

No. Why sell something I already love for it's sounds and interface for a loss. Strymon is awesome as I have a timeline, but I just don't see a reason to switch.

All good points, for now I think Im gonna stick with the Space I use it to sync delay and reverb effects between the Space, Timeline and Mobius as the Space sends midi clock something neither the Timeline or Mobius do, I dont believe the Big Sky does either.

Using the Space to send midi clock means not having to use an outside controller at this point as my set up isnt that involved YET though I know an outside midi controller would simplify and extend the capabilities of all my gear Im just not ready to drop the cash in that area yet so for now I think I will revel a little bit longer in the Spaces amazing sonic sound scapes.

I also have to say the Space is uniquely different than Strymons extremely polished tones, so it does lend a nice contrast, I have also noticed once I start using too many of the same companies gear at one time the sound starts to become so distintly them that I begin to tire of it, kinda like listening to too much Malmsteen,Vai or Satriani, all absolutely mind blowing players but after about an hour I can't even go there again for about a year..if you know what I mean.

I do like some of Spaces features as well, ie: hot switch and other than reverb sounds incorporated into the pedal, its obvious Eventide likes to tease you with versions of their other gear in each box, kinda like a slow introductioon into their other pedals, very ingenious, which ultimately gets you jiving on sounds the next box carries and the next thing you know you own them all.

Strymon is definitely the future with sounds so sweet it almost gives you cavities, be cool if they could start to incorporate some special features to send their pedals over the top as even more user friendly, but Im pretty sure midi controllers and studio work are the obvious next step with their gear, its pretty tough to think you need any other modulation type effects once you own Strymons flagship models, can you imagine a rack version of Strymon with the Timeline,Mobius and Big Sky inside and all the ins and outs for studio recording/live use.

Eventide stuff is inferior in my opinion.

There is a far wider palette of sounds on the BigSky and all of them are usable.There is a lot of junk on the Space and the Spring algorithm is the worst i've heard in any pedal including stuff like the Digitech Hardwire.

Also the really big sounds on the Space get really out of control,way too much bottom end and rumble - i found myself trying to dial out the bottom end all of time.

The modulation knob on the BigSky is better too.Start introducing modulation into your signal and you'll get a linear progression,on the Space it jolts in and kills the top end on the reverb.

I know your right in all respects, I have no doubt the Big Sky will end up replacing my Space, just working up to the sell and switch routine...lol
