    Hey what are your favorite effects that are just slightly "left of center"? (My personal fav kind!) I'm looking past fuzz/distortion/envelopes/delay/ etc. What's truly original and different that you're using??

    Seems most (not all) but most of the pedal market is saturated with only about 6 or 7 different types of effect. Octave/od/fuzz/envelope/chorus/delay/reverb/etc. what else do you like? (Although I'm glad to see Ring Mods and Bit Crushers beginning to gain some traction!)

    I'm talkin:
    Red Panda particle
    Earthquaker rainbow
    Electro Faustus disruptor

    Let's see em!
    And let's hear em! (Let's hear em used musically! If that's possible... Some of these it may not be lol!)
  2. Earthquaker Arpanoid
    Most of the Copilot stuff - Orbit, Molecule, Caracol, Antenna, Gyroscope
    Idiotbox Death Ray, Mad Doctor Stutter
  3. There's a some Orbit sounds on my Soundcloud in "Eating Sand" and a bunch of sound samples. All of the arpeggiations in Eating sand are the Orbit being fed 2 oct up from a Boss PS-6 and going nuts.
  4. Pedal Types: Bitcrush, Ring Modulation & there are some odd ball Fuzz Octave with Starve knobs that are interesting.

    Manufacturers: Subdecay, WMD, Death by Audio, Dwarfcraft, Earthquaker Devices
