(edited) Now I'm impressed (and positively).

Daniele T., 01.04.2016
In a previous review of mine, I said the SuperEgo had failed to impress me positively. I had found its output almost obeying a set of own rules, its tone seeming unaltered by different styles of playing.

Some time after my review, I've asked myself if I had done all I could to find out if the SuperEgo was really unsuitable to my tone search. And answered myself no, not yet. There was still a lot to try, before I had full rights to my judgement.

I've since then wired the most flexible dsp-based effect of mine, a maxed-out Eventide H9, into its send and return bus, and started to gauge the SuperEgo reaction to the most diverse type of effects in its sidechain.

I've found out that, contrary to my hasty first run, the SuperEgo shines fulbright when its inner path is being processed, or even better, heavily processed, in pitch, time, modulation, or all of the above concurrently, via the send/return sidechain bus.

The blend control alone of whatever fx you'll plug in the sidechain does and will produce the widest change in colour within the very setting of the SuperEgo.

Any type of fx significantly alters the granular process of the SuperEgo to an extent that's practically impossible to even imagine, so any type of fx is potentially worth to be hooked to the sidechain bus of the SuperEgo and tried out carefully and patiently.

Whatever time I've invested with fx like chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo, ring modulators and any other sort of delay-based specialty, I've been rewarded with a handful of unique (and usable) tones of different timbre and spectrum, hugely varied in comparison to using the SuperEgo without "side-chained" effects.

Beside this, SuperEgo still excels at doing what the Freeze does, so the investment sounds lucrative for any curious, tone-hungry, reckless sound enthusiast who's seriously willing to come to his or her individual tone and is prepared to work for it.

If you're in search of an effect with which you can easily recreate any classic rock tone of the golden, epic age, and in a matter of seconds, you've not probably landing on your feet here, you might want to look elsewhere.

If you want your tonal palette to expand to almost unlimited possible directions, and are prepared to sculpt your sound with purpose and patience, then look no further, you'll hardly ever yawn when fiddling with the SuperEgo (or hear the same effect twice).

Electro Harmonix Superego

Robert814, 14.12.2013
Now that I have a direct bypass switcher, I can get to grips with the Superego! The Freeze was (for me) very disappointing, having a limited sound and no effects loop. The Superego, however has both a widely variable sound and an effects loop. It's now possible to play a good rendition of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" live! The Superego is in effect a section from a digital synthesiser, which when combined with external effects gives seriously stunning sounds. The only snag is getting used to the timing of pedal presses. Oh, and the lack of true bypass switching! It has really opened up new playing possibilities!
