    OK bear with me on this one:

    I just listened to some audio clips of this thing and I'm pretty impressed. I see using it on some funk/dance type stuff with no problems. When I listened to the "Envelope Filter" setting, it sounded like there was a little fuzz / slight distortion going on. Is this the case? Can I achieve a slight bit of Fuzz with just this pedal or do you think the clip had a seperate distortion effect added?

    My concern with this is the fact I planned on using the pedal ALSO for the song "NIB" by Sabbath (for the WAH effect) and I want to know if I would also need a seperate Overdrive/Distortion pedal or I could get by with just the XBW.

    Any help would be great thanks!

    It could be anything that casued the fuzziness. Recording gear, etc. I've had one for over a year or so, and on envelope I can't really get a fuzziness out of it, but I can get ridiculously sharp attack at times.
