The manual is a horror, not educational at all. The function of each switch, knob or button (26 in all) is not explained individually. We give disordered indications and user is allowed to manage, what.
When (9V not included, including battery or power supply.) You plug the thing, we do not know if it is bypassed or not, it is pressed (large schklonk, EHX is butter in comparison) and it makes no difference, it is still necessary to hack randomly trémoler finally it's starting to ...
Editing sounds is tedious, it is necessary to set each grope no tremolo, you get tired ...
The general configuration is quite good, however, because it is not easy to offer as many parameters on a compact body (too compact, even).
Rather it is a guitar effect, the sound quality seemed good.
The original idea - a tremolo to 16 bumps (or holes, or silences) programmable in intensity hillside, with 8 presets, onto which are other functions (selectable number of steps, the slope control via the pedal, slowed or accelerated configurable and controllable by foot, stopping on each step, back to square one, sequential tremolo or "random"), is excellent, even great. We tell ourselves, what musical and creative tool! Except that - and the video clearly show finally - the interface is so poorly thought that the thing becomes a casual, gadget or we actually repetitive use, we miss 90% of the offer. For who will spend his time on his knees to push this switch, the more these two together to go from tap or hold in the delta, and turn it by pressing them to go to preset 5, then again turn to the limit 9 steps instead of 12? Okay, there is the MIDI in, but it's just to sync to MIDI clock or send functions subdivision tempo. No salvation on this side.
So I returned this pedal after spending an hour or two, too annoying, too frustrating not being able to make flexible and generosity. I had already given such a notice on the ZVex Sonar, and are again amazed and disappointed me again. No, I will not repeat that choice, rather I will see at Empress, for example, less crazy, but better achieved.
Last thing - as I hope you do not have disgusted, but just warned - it costs € 299 in fact. 429 € advertised is for daubed custom version of ...
