    Finally got a chance to try the Freqout in-store - pretty sweet! It works very well- tracking is good (sub is a little weird), onset and gain are smooth in either autodetect or momentary mode. It can give you very feedback-y sounds and would probably benefit from some dirt later in the chain. I gravitated to the sub sound. While it invariably has a delayed onset, it could be great for adding heaviness or sfx deep lows.

    Implementation is clever and it does a great number of tricks really well. I'm thinking it'd be especially cool for synth sounds as you can think of the feedback note as a sine wave that tracks input at a selectable interval.

    Pretty cool pedal for sure.
  2. I just watched the Tone Report video for this thing. Judging by the look on his face Andy really likes it. Neat pedal.

    You know, I was sort of 'meh' about it in the store. Then writing it up I realized it did everything it says on the box and felt more positive. Now, GASsing over it, I am thinking of how I should probably have three on the board...

    Say, @DigiTechRep, what's are the minimum and maximum onset times?

    Btw, anyone try the feedbacker on the Boss MS-3?
  4. My guitarist uses his to awesome effect.

    Oh jeez, I don't know! Counter-clockwise is pretty much instant, but the slow onset I can't really remember.

    Best Pedal of 2017. I got one for my guitar board, and it's bleeping amazing. Real, natural, controllable feedback at sane volumes.

    I got one on a whim to mess around with at home on my bass. It was a bit esoteric for me to use on the gig, but used with a guitar and an amp/cab modeler at home for low volume monitoring, the FreqOut is really, really neat! I loaned it to a guitarist friend who uses the AxeFxII and a wedge monitor for live gigging, and he loves the feedback simulation. Works great.
