Amazingly versatile pedal, despite it’s “niche” marketing
Bluesrockguy, 12.03.2020
This seems like a very esoteric single use pedal: one that produces whizzy swirlies that sort of fit with the overall vibe of your song.
It is way more than that- after only a week, it is probably one of the three pedals I would never remove from my board.
Here are some uses:

1. CLEAN BOOST. An amazingly crisp clean boost. Because you can adjust the LEVEL of the dry signal, you can dial back all the other effects and have a clean boost. At the price, it is an expensive boost, but not outta this world expensive. Seriously, I would buy it just for that (it compares well to my Keeley Katana, just it is crisper, and to the Wampler Tumnus, which colors the tone a bit more).
2. BASS SIMULATOR or OCTAVER. It is easy to dial in a great bass doubling effect - mix wet and dry for a Hendrixy thing, or dial back the dry signal for a very responsive bass tone. No need for a pitch shifter if your only use case is to get some bass tones
3. DOUBLE TRACKER: You can experiment here, but a number of the settings give a nice double track feel with an octave up that blends really nicely
4. DELAY-y/REVERB-y thing: OK, not so precise, and I wouldn’t say you would want to ditch a favorite delay or reverb for this. But if you had to grab one pedal, this could do a nice job, or complement other reverbs
5. ARPEGGIATOR: Finally - and this is such a broad term. You can have it produce a wash of notes, or a slow sequence. A favorite of mine is running it after an EhX organ simulator and getting washed out organ tones - awesome. You can also dial back the mix and get an ambient reverby feel that has a „huh what was that?“ effect if you pay close attention to the spatter of additional notes. Cool! The other nifty feature here is that the arpeggiation responds to your playing. So if you sustain a note, you will get a lot of arpeggiation that sort of decays. If you pick a note then mute it, the arpeggio will stop. So you can use your playing dynamics as an expression pedal of sorts.

There are many more creative uses - I just found that putting a limited arpeggiation with a LOT of distortion produces sustained notes that are just a bit more interesting and dynamic. I am sure people more creative than I have already figured out super cool stuff.

In summary, this pedal is not just WEIRD or INTERESTING or FUN - it is with the first four functions INCREDIBLY VERSATILE AND USEFUL. Get one!!
