    Yep, been using this guy for almost two years now... so very very good...

    It replaced an FEA 2CH Mixer on my board. Which I thought would never happen (another amazingly awesome parallel mixer/channel controller).

    What exactly can this pedal do for you?

    Think a boss ls2 on steroids.. really they're not even in the same ball park, they do similar things but the options the schism offers goes way beyond an ls2. Its a top notch loop/blender pedal.

  9. Just curious, has anyone ever seen the inside of this bad boy??
     
  10. Twice the loops for twice the space? Deal. When I was shopping for blenders the features of the badger and the wounded paws were pretty equal for my needs, but WP won me for simply having more options for me to grow into. Though I am thinking about an LS2 for a smaller board.

    Don't do the LS 2 if you want the option of ch 1 or 2, 1 and 2, or off without having to reach down and select diff setting, I think that's a MAJOR fail they missed in that pedal-

    I don't know if I'd call it a major fail considering the size and price of the pedal.

    Not a fail as a pedal, great pedal...fail as that option on the dial of like 6-7 options, they missed a setting that is very desired when looping, that being the one mentioned above-

    Oh I can dig it. WP blenders are impressive for sure. Their v4 is rediculous!

    The v3 has 3 loops and a clean channel toggle (4 total), while the Schism has 2 loops and a clean channel toggle (3 total). So the WP v3 is twice the size with one more channel, not twice the channels. Although, the ability to switch two channels from parallel to series is a feature worth the extra size, and price I think. I'm glad I don't need that feature, or I'd be looking sideways at my Schism!

    Still, I don't know of another Schism sized (1590?) box that can do what the Schism can do. So much awesome packed into such a small package.

    WP make a similar sized box but they chose to use it for 1 channel and a clean with EQ.

    I've got an SFX box that has footswitches and output gain controls for 2 parallel loops. No phase inversion features but it's the size of an LS-2 and you can select individual loops (or mix both) with your foot.

    Nice looking pedal but I'm happy with my Saturnworks for price and simplicity.

    That's similar to the early Schisms

    Hmmm, I missed that one on my search, but I'm totally pleased with the schism-
