    I'm putting together a new board and I would like a few recommendations for modulation.
    I have my overdrive/distortion/fuzz covered with a Bassdrive, Landmine, and Depth Charge respectively.

    What I'm looking for ideally is:

    1) A standalone flanger - my absolute favorite flanger is a DOD bass flanger but that is staying on my current board.
    2) Phaser - I have my eye on the Retro-Sonic Phaser
    3) Chorus - I'm not sure if I'm keeping my Choralflange
    4) Delay

    Non-modulation pedals:
    5) Envelope filter - I'm looking at the tonefactor or keeping my Emma.
    6) If something exists, a pedal that is similar in size (width) to a standard wah but functions like a digitech whammy.

    Here are the specifics.... I would like all of them to be:

    1) True hardwire bypass
    2) Ideally I would like the inputs and outputs on the top of the pedal to fit them closer together for board real-estate
    3) I would like them in the smallest enclosure possible (think MXR Phase 90 or similar size)

    I also have my eye on the Eventide Modfactor for the many options it offers but I'm coming to my talkbass experts to get me GAS'ing :)

    Boutique lovers......Let's hear 'em! Whaddya got for me?
  2. The Voodoo Lab Analog Chorus is true-bypass, has the jacks on top, and is pretty small.

    Homebrew Psilosybe Phaser is a the same size as the EHX XO micro pedals and is true-bypass, but that has the jacks on the side.

    The Subdecay Quasar has the jacks on top, but I think its a little bigger.

    TC Electronics has the Chorus/Flanger, and also the Classic Phaser, they have the jacks on the top, but I'm not sure its true-bypass.

    I have the Psilocybe, great phaser but I'm selling it to a friend.

    I have been looking at the Quasar for some time now, as well as the Prometheus....dear lord, is there anything that filter can't do?
    I gotta stop watching those videos on

    Damn, I totally forgot about that pedal years might be what I need considering the space requirements.
