Strymon BigSky, DIG and Mobius although my Mobius seems pretty sensitive to input level and most of the time doesn't work well unless I attenuate heavily before the input.

Also TC Electronic Flashback and Electro Harmonix Ravish Sitar.

BTW, JohnLRice, could you expound a little bit on your experiences with these pedals? The Mobius description is good enough, but do you have maybe a sentence or two to add about the others?

cheers :mrgreen:

I think the BigSky is one of the best bang-for-the-buck reverb pedals around and particularly nice for synths IMHO. There are many different styles of reverb type and then within each one of those is a mountain of variation and sub-styles just waiting to be discovered. And it does subtle and well and wild.

The El Capistan does a beautiful tape delay emulation with three different types of machine to choose from and lots of parameters. It may be one of the best pedals to use for doing realistic "Berlin School" style sequencing.

The DIG also sounds great on each of its three different types of digital emulation and it's a dual delay so lots of really interesting rhythms can be created. It can also optionally sync to an external analog clock or have the delay rate be controlled by CV, which is awesome for modular users.


I have YouTube demos of the Strymon pedals I've tried so if you want some links let me know.

Yeah JohnLRice, I'm sure that if you posted some links that anyone who wanted to see/hear what you're talking about could listen to, that it would help.

I'll add your descriptions to the original post.

Cool - thanks bro.

So, I just tried an idea that worked out *very well*. :)

Patched the CV Out (pitch) from a BeatStep to the CV In of a Minifooger MF-Drive and set the knobs so the filter opens more with higher pitch signals. Poor Man's MIDIMurf and possibly one that is more powerful in the end (more patterns, real time step changes, etc.)

Now I'm wondering what I can do with the MF-Ring, and especially what I can do with the MF-Delay (much craziness). :D

Here are some things you could get by sending a sequence of CV to a Ring Mod:

The two biggest differences being that you can hear the carrier on the Ringtone,
and you'd have more steps by using the BeatStep.

And here's what you get when you send sequenced CV to an MF-107 FreqBox:

I never get tired of listening to this video :-)

^That's cool! I am not getting as much resonance from the MF-Drive (to be expected), but it works similarly.

Most of what I do with the MF-Ring is to use it as a "Second OSC" for the MicroBrute. This works because I can send Pitch CV to the MF-Ring and achieve keyboard tracking of the overtones. It really helps make the single OSC sound much more complex.

Just wish those darned BeatSteps would sync to incoming MIDI clock OTB. :evil:
