    I feel like an alien just farted robot ghosts into my brain. In a good way.

    I think I could use this in my country gig! Seriously w t f though (why the face)
  4. It has tones that are very dubstep oriented. But there is also a stoner/doom type vibe. Therefore, it is perfect for budstep.

    That's crazy! Some of it sounds like the Frantabit.

    I dig! I hear some tones similar to the Noisebox, but much more responsive.
  9. I did have a Noisebox for a little bit, but it sounded very thin to me. The W/T/F is incredibly responsive to your playing. In the video you see Juan try and set a loop, but the pedal doesn't react the same way as when he is playing.

    There is certainly a learning curve with the pedal, and as with any stompbox with sweet spots...there will be many not sweet spots.

    As far as use, I have found many applications. I put it before my trem, and use a heavy helicopter chop...it sounds awesome. I play with my volume knob too to get the envelope to open and close, which also sounds rather unique. With a delay on, forget it, it sounds like an alien spaceship landing. So cool!

    This is exactly what I was thinking. The Noisebox is way cool, but due to the nature of its synthesis, it obliterates the signal and the lowest freqs. disappear. I usually have to blend in clean signal to use it on bass, which is fine and there are times when I don't need the low end (solos). The ***? is on my radar now as a Noisebox replacement for those robot laser sounds.
