    I just took delivery on a Timeline and I think I'm in love. For people who own or owned the Mobius what modulation effects do you use in addition to it? I'm wondering if I take the plunge what I'll be able to retire.

    Add an expression pedal and that's pretty much all you'll need.

    I now use an Eventide H9 since it's smaller and does more (verbs, delays...) but I still think the Strymons sound slightly better and are more intuitive (even using the well made H9 editor on a computer)

    I like the filters on the Mobius ok, but I still need a stand alone filter that sweeps lower. Everything else is good enough for my needs, or better.

    If you like Strymon's choruses, flangers, phaser, and vibe you should be set as those are all very well done and sound great as mentioned. The filter is nice but might seem a bit sterile at first if you're used to big funky wet analog envelope filters and wahs. I'm still studying the filter machine...last night I made progress with's actually pretty well done and expressive and the resonance seems to have sweet spots just like an analog filter. The rotary, trems, and autoswell are really good. Lastly the resampler/bit crusher and the FM/AM/freq-shift machine are interesting and do weird things when you feed them into fuzz. The best thing about the Mobius is that when not in stereo mode it can route itself before or after other pedals. I have mine floating around my OD and fuzz section so that I can run modulators and filters on ether side. This is huge. I think the presets are guitar oriented so things might sound thin if you roll through those first thing. Minor tweaking will help for bass, for instance changing the filter mode from Wah to low pass makes the filter presets sounds much better on bass and bass synths. But forget the presets. The LPF works great statically for dub. The vibe can do midi synced slow tape flutter. Those are my needs. I'm totally digging my Mobius for now.
