    Initial Impressions of the C4 are great! It is a highly capable unit, I know I will have many hours of preset creation and tweaking. Since this is the beta release, there were only 3 presets provided, the rest is left to the community. I have created 3 patches so far, one of which I am really happy with. I believe this pedal will be heavily respected by those who are into this kind of thing. When I say it goes deep, I mean it goes DEEEP!

    Really going for couple of smaller pt junior sized boards instead of a one huge board. Loving especially my new invention, blender/bypass looper built in a volume pedal. It is the cornerstone of the effect board. Similarly the more simple blender in the main board is the cornerstone of the main board that is actually more of a preamp than an effects board.

    Main board chain.
    FATM - FEA DE-CL - Blender
    loop 1 in the blender -Bug Caster
    loop 2 in the blender - Rodenberg GAS 808b- Rodenberg Commander -DIY one knob fuzz I call a Beatle fuzz- Manta
    Korg tuner.

    Effects board is still a work in progress. The basic structure is anyway that looper / blender thingie. At the moment the other loop in it is Zoom Multistomp and DOD 250 for overdrive and the other is Rams Head Muff in to reverb. Then just a clean boost after and a Hotone wally in a separate loop to round up things. I really want to update the wally next. Been eying a Ditto x4 to take its place. If I get one of those. I'll probably build a third board for that. Maybe something simple like a delay and whatnot along with the x4.

    Current board situation:


    Front board is 'essentials' gig board that fits in a PT mini case.

    Middle green board pedals are the ones I swap in and out on the gig board depending on what band I'm playing with and the mood I'm in.

    Top board is my experimental tone board which I use to mess around with modulation and synth stuff.

    Additional picture of the middle 'bullpen' board:

    I see that t16 has snuck its way into rotation.

    Made a third board for bass, pre main board synth board.

    Loop - Zoom Multistomp- DIY In to the unknown guitar synth.

    Then I made a board for my fiancee, she wants to test effects with electric violin. So I put all the effects from drawer to that big board that was left unused.

    I do have a problem thought. If I use the Zoom Multistomp in the beginning, I need a delay in the third board. Can't use a lot of money on it too, so I might build the Faux delay kit. The main thing is it can oscillate. Absolutely needed feature. And its cheap.

    The Faux - Delay kit, 25,00 €

    Loved my Cog Effects T-16 so much that I bought its big brother, a T-65. Both are my favorite octave pedals by a mile.

    I love the tone on it. It is a little glitchy, but it does the natural octave tone really nice and the subby oc-2 side of the spectrum is there too in such a small package.

  17. With all the deep dive and complex routing and layering aside...and let face it....this pedal offers a LOT of options. I was wondering how the stock Octaver sounds on it's own. Is it digital octave sounding or analogue sounding (OC-2 ish)? Either way, one of these is going on my board once they are readily available in the UK. I'm just kind of wondering if Digial octavers are at a level yet to kick an analogue octaver off my board...or not.

    Some changes have stemmed from the Future Impact turning into the Future Compact! This allowed me to get the Manta onboard as well as the Devi Ever Shoegazer Clone with mods. Overall it’s more quiet and allows me to have the filters AFTER the synth and fuzz. Still digging the Pyramids if you’re a modulation fan in the slightest check it out. Third EQD pedal and it is badass.
