    pretty much any distortion / od pedal that comes out I have to try.

    Right now, I'm waiting for the new boss oc-3 octaver to come out. And the Korg AmpWorks thing has caught my eye.

    Man, I already own or have owned most of the pedals you guys are gassing for... :D

    Right now I need a good chorus (probably Fulltone CF1 or Maxon) and an analog delay (Maxon AD900 fo' sho'!).

    As for something esoteric, I'd like a 4ms Noiseswash or Triwave Picogenerator. And I'd love to get my hands on an old Digitech Talker. It's the hizzle fa-shizzle!

    No Boss pedals on my list. I'm trying to quit.

    I might be able to get my hands on one. We used one all the time in an old band, but the drummer gave up music, and he still has it.

    ...

    So just how dependent are you on those ZVexs? :D

    Edit: Oh yeah...my effects GAS:

    Oh Yeah nice Ground Control now all you need is the GCX switch.
    Wow you must love wah's.

    G.A.S.
    My signature says fully GASed I love filters can't get enough of them now if I had a third arm I would think about a Kaoss Pad II.

    FaderMaster neither of which has been integrated into my rack which I need to double up on soon (I am out of space, DJ Shuttle)

    I've got the GCX switcher, just waiting on the GC Pro. As for the wah, I've never liked the Dunlop, and I'd rather just go ahead and spend the money for the rackmount and have as little as possible on the floor. If I can't find that, I'm gonna go with the Automagic Earthquake Bass Wah. And as for that Talker...I'll see what I can do and let you know if I can get it for you, BTA. When are we going to be graced with some samples of the ZVexs? :D

    Edit: Alan - I read not too long ago that the guitarist for the band Fuel, Carl Bell, uses a Kaoss Pad on his pedal board. He said he uses his foot to roll a rubber ball around on it to make wacky noises, mostly between songs.

    I can try to make some mp3 samples this week, Socom. I don't have a web host as yet so I will have to AIM them to you.

    Someone keep me away from eBay...

    I just bought a VoodooLab Overdrive pedal, a BassBalls pedal a few days ago, bidding on a broken Guv'nor...

    Someone stop me before I'm broke!

    Alright :), I don't have one and I couldn't get anyone to give the straight dope on this beasty but, your info is much appreciated. I had thought that such a thing might be possible. The problem is that most of the owners of this are Keyboardist and DJ and they don't think like those of us who have two hands full. I wonder what the people at the music store will think when they hear I want to run a little ball around on its control surface. :D
    I found out I could control two of the G-Majors individual modules with the same expression pedal. I managed this with the little G-Minor controller that I got with it and I have yet to plug my FCB-1010 controller into it but, I want to do some morphing tricks and now I am inspired. :)
