I've used this pedal to create bizarre lead. Sounds great with wah. I wouldn't say it's particularly versatile though. Works well as a substitute for a bass as you can drop an octave.
- Was this a gift?:
This pedal is pretty awesome. I have achieved the most over the top lead synth sounds, and crazy octave distortion sounds. The gain pot on the back sort of complicates matters for those who wish to have "true bypass" I just always left it on and cut it out of my chain with a boss ls2. A delay pedal is a complete necessity with this thing. It sounds incredibly dirty and dry without it if you are using bowed sounds. All in all this pedal is pretty good if your looking to get synth style tones from your guitar.
This pedal is nothing short of amazing. The amount of sounds you can get out of this one box with ten faders is nothing short of astonishing. If you want your guitar to sound like a Moog, this is the best way to do it. All analog, very gritty, makes your guitar sound like it's covered in hair. Highly recommended!
The EHX Micro Synthesizer was my first pedal, and I really like it. I can say that it will be a staple on my pedal board for years to come. Once you get to know it, and harness its features, you will be able to create a lot of new original sounds that would be hard to get with other products. This pedal is probably not for those who generally aren't crazy about expanding their sound, however for those who love making sounds of any sort, this is the pedal for you. If you can afford a bunch of the Moogerfooger pedals, get those instead, because those are going to let you do much, much more but those cost a lot of money. Though I really like this pedal, if it got stolen, I'd probably buy a Line 6 FM4 Filter Modeler. I can't directly compare the two though because I only own the Micro Synth. Great tool and really fun for whatever you need it for.
ok so i got this pedal and the controls arent really hard to use i dont know why every one is saying that i mean if you learned how to play a guitar you can handle like 10 controls i hope. but this pedal is SO worth it! it does things i would never construe from the small demo the only thing that sucks is that you can only play one string at a time if you want to play chords you have to lower the strength of whatever effect to literally inaudible levels other than that i meen it's so freaken good for absolutely everything you can ask for, it's double the price of your average pedal but it's worth four-hero
There is not much to say, I mean it does what it promises, however I do agree the controls area little tough but it is worth it. Unless you can afford the Roland synth this is your best bet.
I used to made ambients and funk distortions, nice for experimentation.
Best when used in conjunction with other pedals (e.g. delay, reverse, flange, whammy). Alone, it was interesting but impractical, there is a noticable volume difference between the active and bypass mode. Most useful for funk, prog or alternative/avante guarde anything.
This is a great pedal. It has its problems, but overall I love it. As with all Electro-Harmonix products, it can be used to subtly augment your tone, or to send it over the edge into a mystical land where guitars sound totally sweet.Problems are these: It's annoying that you can pretty much only use the power source provided, and they don't warn you, but you'll have to fine tune it to your guitar's pickups or it sounds terrible. The controls are sort of hard to get used to, etc.But it's all worth it considering the final result. It sounds great on its own, but especially in combination with my overdrive, it can be used to very subtly accent the distortion. The frequency sweep is also of great use if you want to sound awesome. Overview: If you are satisfied with a guitar that sounds like a rock n' roll guitar and nothing else, it's to much trouble for not a whole lot of good. But if you want your guitar to sound like a crazy synth or pretty much like anything BUT a guitar, then it's totally worth the trouble.
This is an entirely unique product. On the down side, the controls are foreign and counterintuitive, it takes a good five minutes to warm up, it can't track anything lower than the D below E, and it won't run on batteries (or a daisy chain, since it uses something like 27.5 volts). On the upside, it does exactly what it promises- makes guitars sound like horns, violins, moogs, moogs, and reverse.
