    Picked up a Malekko Scrutator today at a steal ($100 used). Haven't figured out where to put it in a chain, but it is far and away the most fun I've had with a bit crusher/sample rate reducer. Love the filter and exp setup - got it set to do dub at the heel and gated fuzz at toe. Really fun for lots of settings, gonna try it with synth and acoustic guitar.

    Right now, working with DD-6 >> OC-2 >> Copilot Orbit >> Bluebeard >> Scrutator

    The Scrutator is a super fun pedal, I always put mine at the end of my chain but I also just use it for goofing around, haven't even begun to truly exploring the capabilities with an expression pedal. There's so many different sounds in that little box.

    I also love using it with my Blue Hippo.
  3. I just got one of these but it didn't come with any kind of instructions. How do you assign the expression pedal input?

    Fun pedal. I should've kept mine.
