Great Pedal
Dimitri-Herbert, 11.11.2019
I wanted a pitch shifter to enhance my arrangements by adding harmonies, 'pitch shifts', etc..
I was intrigued by the option to control harmonies and pitches with the expression pedal and thus chose for this pedal.

The sound quality and tracking are phenomenal as is the case with many Digitech pedals.

The pedal itself is well-built and filled to the brim with useful features such as many different harmonies and even a detune option.

The only downside is that you may need to recalibrate the expression pedal once in a while, but that is to be expected.

All in all a great pedal and I would definitely recommend it to anyone

This pedal really is an oddball, brilliant idea executed very well that gives you the opportunity to pull out instant walls of sound whenever you feel like it. Definitely takes a few hours of playing to really get where the pedal sits in your arsenal, as it's tempting to just use it for everything, but really you gotta be clever with it to really make it work in live situations as i've found myself kicking it one in intense moments and it just kills the vibe. The tracking (most of the time) is impeccable on the 'chord' setting and capable of getting the signature glitchy bad tracking sound on 'classic'. One problem i've found on my unit and im certain this is a one off thing is that the note a 5th down is slightly out, and it's only this note i think but otherwise i can't fault it. An appropriate midi controller would be a good investment if the pedal becomes an integral part of your sound, as the sounds which work the best are quite fair apart on the selector. All in all a very versatile and usable pedal (standard 9v in), built well and a good investment if you really take the time to explore the musical possibilities.

Bass Whammy
zombiespacebat, 25.07.2014
Having owned the original I can say this is an improvement in almost every way, better pedal action, much more sturdy casing and the tracking is massively improved. The only things I miss from the old version is the buttons to change settings so you could switch with your feet, and the lovely warble you got when the whammy tried to track multiple notes (the tracking in the new one allows for excellent multi-note tracking so the warble doesn't happen anymore)

sturdy as a bull
Hamish, 06.07.2015
i bought this blindly and it has turned out to be very good. it has alot of harmony and interval options and works well over a wide range.you can get some great sounds out of this from extreme to subtle changes with small movements of your foot. it has different settings for a single note or harmony. each have alot of variations themselves ranging from 2nd interval to 2 octaves up.
though testing ive found that it works well on guitar too i have though i havent tried the guitar specific model so i cant compare it to that. it has a sturdy metal housing and seems like it wont fall apart for many decades. you can change settings easily enough with your foot if you are dexterous. it has a pretty large footprint on a pedalboard but thats to be expected and isnt really a negative.

no real negatives come to mind, its solidly built and does what its supposed to. its a keeper for me atleast.
