    Hey Chris,
    Gee.....it's been SO LONG since I bought it new, when they first came out. I'm gonna venture to say it was about $180 or so.....


    In addition to the just plain weird ring modulators and other stuff, the best thing it does is the synth swell.... very similar to the popular reverb "shimmer" effect that people like these days.

    The synth swell patches have several variations that allow you to swell-in the string effect , or swell-in & blend your untreated guitar signal... or swell-in string effects that are in 4ths or 5ths....... very trippy.


    If they could just make a pedal that does all the synth swell patches with variations..... it would be killer, just with that voicing alone

    Man... I want one of those so bad! There's a digitech "jet pack" mod pedal that's been popping up on my local CL but the guy wants like $400 for it. If only...

    I'll wait for BYOC to make clone of the Miku called the Mitu (pronounced me-too)..... Then we can start modding them to include German and Russian phrases and declare how much better it is than an ordinary stock Miku pedal... Then I'll put a graphic of Chuck Norris on it so I can put it on my pedal board AND retain my man card...

    I would totally use that. I've circuit bent some stuff that can almost do that stuff, but it's really unstable.

    I thought my Roland Funny Cat was ridiculous, but there is some weird stuff out there.

    Daddy, this thing is pretty unstable, too! You're never sure just what it's gonna do, despite past experience

    After coveting my Space Station for awhile, one of my buddies got one of those "Jet Pack Mods" on a Whammy Pedal....

    I have yet to hear how it sounds compared to my Space Station, but it supposedly has ALL that Digitech series' voice patches available, thru some switching and then powering OFF, then ON again.

    Half of the 40 voice patches in these pedals have limited use...but there are some doozys in there.

    I bought a Danelectro pedal lately that's a quick delay with reverb or slapback type delay times and the foot treadle controlling delay time, leading to pitch shifting of the delays when the treadle is going back and forth. Very odd pedal... Oh, and it looks like a pimped out flaming old flat front flat bed truck.
