    Just watched this video and I'm GASing hard.

    Don't know what the hell I'd do with it but isn't that what GAS is all about?

    mine should be arriving tomorrow :)
  4. Ug. I shouldn't have clicked on this link. It'll probably cost me some money.

    It seems to give that shimmer effect of +1 or +2 octaves plus delay really nicely.

    Donno about blah. I find my Freeze becoming one of my 'more used' pedals. Superego ups the anti on musical usefulness.

    If only I (literally) another inch or two on my pedaltrain...

    I would much rather have a pedal that shortened the decay of my signal rather than stretching it. Oh well. :(

    And before anyone responds with suggestions of palm/foam muting, imagine the consequences downstream of doing that.

    I think this would be an awesome pedal for soloing with a little practice. Or in a spot where you want to fill a sonic gap but don't necessarily want to have your attack shine through. I really dig it and the fact that its basically a Freeze and a little synth built into one box is appealing to people like me who don't like having a buttload of pedals to mess with but like weird sounds.

    I use my freeze a lot as well...wondering if I'll want to keep my freeze in addition to this pedal or if it will totally do everything my freeze does + some

    Hmmm I have a use for this.

    Basically a momentary drone effects loop :D some fun with a meatbox/lpf I think

  13. This seems like a pretty inventive implementation of the freeze and gliss effects. The effect loop puts it over the top. I will check one out when it comes up cheap used :bag:

    How about using your fingers for that? Or set of flatwounds?

    It can do that. Check out the effectology demo on youtube.

    Okay, so the original video posted up above is a from a couple months ago, and was not the best demo. This new one, however, shows exactly how I'd want to use it for getting Shine On You Crazy Diamond and other soundscapes with as few instruments as possible:
  17. Pretty sure I'm going to end up with one of these at some point. At least I never bought a Freeze, which this seems to eclipse.

    Jammed with it today. Freaking great sounds and the guys loved it.
  19. This is now at the top of my list. Dammit, they got me again!
  20. Well, I bought one. It's pretty fun. I think it'll be REALLY fun after I get my next order in... The Source Audio Bass Envelope Filter Pro. I'm thinking this will be really fun: Bass --> EHX Bass MicroSynth --> B:assmaster --> SuperEgo ---> Bass Envelope Filter with Hot Hands --> Amp.

    Should be KILLER.

    So far the SuperEgo is fun for soloing over and I've found some good, usable tones. However, I'm really looking forward to messing with it after I get the Hot Hands in the effects chain. Can't wait....
