Needs some time and attention, but has unique place
markkus, 13.02.2021
It takes time to get to know this device, after only two weeks of use I still have not tested all of it. I keep going back to settings I like and tweak them or combine them with other pedals for extra effect. Most difficult to tune is the build-in fuzz, but fuzz is very prone to personal taste and preference so ymmv. I ended up placing my own DOD Carcosa fuzz in the loop, which in my setup created more usable sounds. To say it's 'just' a swell/volume pedal does not do it justice, especially the way you can shape the envelope makes this a lot more diverse and creative. Some of the settings create strange behavior, but you could also see it as a feature, which sometimes adds to what you build and sometimes you just have to restart. So this thing has a lot of useful sounds, a lot of experimenting and for the price it's hard to find anything more fun to play with. Saving presets is also a nice feature, when you want to recreate settings with one or two taps, the expression features I have to test, but they look flexible enough and can be used for different knobs and settings.

AutaKen , 18.11.2020
Own and use lots of guitar pedals at my studio. This one is very unique and the reason I got it, different. I use it mainly for 1 thing, with a Digitech Freakout combined I can get a kind of ebow effect while jumping between multiple strings and chords. Cant do that with an ebow, have 1 of those too. It also has an inbuilt distortion with tone that sounds great. The sensitivity function is also good. Often run synth through it too for some unusual effects with the blend control, can create a drone behind fast note motifs. Also good for swells. Need to experiment with it more to bring out it's full potential ( fx loop option/reverse fx simulation ) but happy with what I use it for at the moment. Unique, don't know of another pedal that can do something similar.

auf zu neuen Ufern
th_cy, 10.02.2021
Ich hab das Teil seit nem halben Monat:
Am Anfang geben die 3 Presets einen guten Überblick, was das Gerät so kann (Soundbeispiele). Den Rest muss man sich erarbeiten:
der Mono-Modus ist eher für einzelne Töne, man kann mit Attack, Sens und Blend aber auch schnell, ohne Aussetzer spielen, wenn man den Rhytmus der Maschine rausgefunden hat: die arbeitet dann mehrere Töne in einer Volumen-Hüllkurve ab. Der Klang selber wird nicht verändert.
der Poly-Modus verspricht da Hilfe bei Picking, gestrichenen Akkorden... ist aber anders und nicht so fein in der Regelung, und klingt immer wie Streichorchester. Kann man mögen...
Die Taster sind stabil und tasten auch nur: kein Klick-Tritt-Teil.
Was mir nicht gefällt: der zuschaltbare Fuzz lässt sich von 100% Fuzz bis 250% Fuzz "regeln". Und ich hab lieber harmonische Verzerrung...
Wenn ich meine Duesenberg Grand Vintage in Reihe schalte kommt es zu Verzerrungen in der Schaltung: klingt, als ob die Nadel über die Platte schrammt. Single-Pickup kein Problem.
Da sollte EHX echt nachbessern: Ich hab das erste Pedal gleich wieder zurück geschickt: das kam mit -2 Grad bei mir an: gleich angestöpselt: Alles immer komplett verzerrt. nach 4 Stunden: der Zerr war nur mehr bei Reihenschaltung. Mein Schluss: kalte Lötstelle. Anstandslos ein neues Teil von Thomann. Aber in Reihe eben immen noch: Mail mit EHX: freundlich, aber keine wirkliche Lösung für ihr Teil (also nix für die Jungs mit den 13 kOhm Cruchbuckern...?¿?).
Happyges Rumsounden...
