i think for once i'll actually be responsible and see if i can create such effects on either of my Eventide units.. while not the grand daddy of eventides (the H8000) my units (the Eclipse and the classic H3000 D/SE) might be able to handle delays with some unpredictable pitch shifting and filtering
if not. .. well, i may have to kiss $300 goodbye.. but i should at least humor myself (and my wife) and get my hands dirty programming..
or you could stick your favorite delay plug-in into audiomulch taking different feeds off it and modulate/filter those to your hearts content.
the pedal would be nice in a live set up all the same.
not sure I'd get much use out of it at home as to warrant the cost.
this is the kind of pedal I try
to model in MSP + Reaktor. It is very hard to do: easy of use, quality of sound, transparency of control (I don't really wanna hear LFOs forcing everything around). The beauty of this thing is in its balance of simplicity & complexity - this is, at least by my "haven't used it" measure, a well designed piece of kit, but we are all in love with it and not a one of us has fessed up to actually using it. yeah, we can hack up some crazy stuff in software, but there is a real elegance (and flexibility) to this thing that takes the pressure of making sure my/yr computer can do "everything."
and, while I'm sure our performance practices differ, I'd always
take this to a gig.
