    Anyone try the soundblocks 2 manta? I'm interested in a manta vs Bass envelope filter pro. Anyone have experience with both?

    Lots of information on here:



    and here


    I think the bottom line is that it is extremely well received. Personally, I like it better than the Source Audio BEF Pro that I had before. Certainly a better size and integrates well with the other SB2 pedals and the new hub.

    Manta is the way to go at the moment. And with the SA midi hub connectivity, you can have 128 saved presets, controlled by a midi switcher. Totally worth it IMO.

    Thanks guys! Looks like I'm going with manta. I have only a small space on my pedalboard left. So looks like it's an easy decision.

    I have both (and i'm keeping both of them) and if I had to pick just one, although the BEF Pro is just as good, i'd go with the manta.
