I can certainly let you see what controls I have set up, but here is not the place. I'll create a separate thread.

Thanks Mr. Elf.
Although I find it amusing that I am now looking for pedals to control my pedals!

I think I just plugged an AC output PSU into one of my DC pedals :blush:
OK, if I’m right, a sine wave symbol nest to the output voltage on the PSU case indicates AC?
DC is a solid line with a dotted line underneath?

Well, put us out of our misery, did the magic blue smoke escape or is it still working?

Listening to that and thinking I could get those sounds with Cubase and the outboard kit I have. It is nice though but seems like a solution looking for a problem to me, £350 to have an instant complex sound at your feet.

Did you ever get the Eventide Rose, by the way?

I don’t know if it’s still working, I’m away and it’s all I have, I’ll let you know when I get back to the basement of doom and I can try it with another PSU.

I’m stock taking my attitude to pedals this week, I’m fed up with seeing so many for a start, especially ones that cover the same ground and the only differences are the trendy paint jobs.
I'm also fed up to the back teeth with lo-fi this and lo-fi that, I’m also pissed off with these glitchy delay/reverbs, FFS, and who needs another "dense floaty reverb?"
And the prices, ridiculous, pedals have sort of taken over from Eurorack as the trendy thing to have, it’s almost embarrassing to order a Chase Bliss pedal, you can almost hear the salesman thinking "gullible w****r"
Trouble is, I’ve covered all bases, if I buy anymore I’m going to be going over the same ground, OK, some pedals do the same thing but with a different flavour, that’s fine, I have three delay pedals for that reason.
But regarding more purchases, I’m slowing down, until something really interesting comes out, and don’t hold your breath.

Uh-oh. More pedals on the horizon, approaching fast.
Fasten your seatbelts as this ride never ends!

I like them firstly, because they are so easy to use, so immediate, with simple controls, once they start to get all menu driven with hidden dip switches they loose me entirely.

I LURVE this one. As thefruitfarmer mentions, you could no doubt do all this within your DAW with plug-ins, but what a wonderfully creative little box.

And the animated video is a tiny work of art too 8-)

Yup some nice pedals!
I think they would all be more awesome if they did stereo in and out. these cool pedals are for more than guitar players.
Also
There is someone calling themself Knobs on YouTube. Knobs does some great pedal demos with a nice pace so you can follow along with exactly what is being done.

The Blooper is cool, but it’s quite complicated, and has hidden options.
OUCH! and yes, that’s expensive with it not being stereo, a major limitation for me.
The Ripply Falls is going to be my next one.
