    I would actually find this box more useful than a Tubescreamer.

    Hearing the Gap band in a pedal demo made that worth the price of admission.

    If I could get a used one cheap enough I'd bite. Just for man cave noodling

    I felt the same way about hearing Gary Numan/The Tubeway Army at the beginning.

    I get that this is really cool. In a late 70s early 80s way. But what would I actually use it for?

    Perhaps it doesn't suit your style of music, but I think it could have lots of uses in the right place. Personally, I love it!

    Aside from covering synth based stuff, this pedal will probably appeal more to people looking to experiment with their own sound than to people who want to copy existing sounds. I would run this into a fuzz and blast single note riffs, or into a bunch of delays and mash it into a smooth pad, just off the top of my head.

    I saw that this weekend and was tempted.

    My fear is that the note attack & decay dynamics would be too dictated by the settings & less by picking.

    A fat analog moog lead sound has always appealed to me.

    I use an analog octave pedal (ehx multiplexer) for this. I blend out all the dry signal and play an octave above the note I want. Obviously this limits my range, but it's an analog synth tone. Sounds great with envelope filter.

    Sounds like fun. Definitely not for me, but could be very inspiring. For those who like it, I say go for it.

    Being able to use an expression pedal for that - or some other parameter - would be great, but may have necessitated using a larger enclosure. Based on this Sweetwater image, it does not have one.
