This might be a stupid question, but can the LFO output be converted from 1/8" to 1/4" TRS? I'm curious if I'd be able to use the internal LFO to control CV sweeps on something like the Count to 5 or my Super Radical Delay.
I'm currently in the process of moving, but this thing is at the top of my 'to-buy' list when I get settled and replenish my bank account.

Would Hapiness work well with a Roland EV-5 exp pedal?
I'm impressed!!!

Just took the plunge and ordered mine through the Reverb 15% off sale. Can't freakin' wait. I also have all the parts necessary to build a 1/8" CV to TRS cable coming in the mail, so hopefully I can do some weird syncing of the LFO w another pedal's Exp controls.

How would it work with an EV-5, anybody tried it yet?

I just found out about this thing, because I am a fuckhead, and watched the Knobs and Aen demos.

So I caved and bought one during the Reverb 15% off sale. It arrived at my new house as we started to unload our Uhaul this weekend so I've only had a couple hours to play with it, but DAMN is this an incredible device. I haven't even played with the expression pedal controls yet and I already feel like there's a whole world of possibility.
Now that there are demos by PGS and Knobs I think there are plenty of examples of what kind of sounds are possible, but if you want more I have a few on my instagram and will likely be sharing more in the near future. https://www.instagram.com/p/BJb-zSpgvc2/

Not yet, it's in the works.

It will work, but not nearly as well as an expression pedal with a 50k pot, like the Moog.
I actually test with an M-audio expression pedal (10k) just because it's semi-permanently installed at the testing table.

Shouldn't be a problem, the CV is Eurorack standard.

Hey Ben, do you have any experience using an EHX 8-Step Program with the Happiness?
I got one yesterday and it *sorta* works on the LFO EXP input - best I could tell it was sending two different rates, fast or slow, rather than any intermediate rates. Also it only produces a stationary filter position with a TRS in the FREQ EXP in or with the FREQ CV in using a TRS to 1/8" mono cable (which I've been successfully using to hook the LFO CV out to other pedals). To further help in troubleshooting, it works perfectly fine with an expression pedal and a TRS cable running into the FREQ EXP jack.
I know the 8-Step isn't compatible with everything, but I got it with primarily Happiness-related uses in mind so any suggestions/troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry we missed this last week. I don't think it will work well because the EHX is only going to go 0-5v and the Happiness does 0-12v internally. You'll be able to use it for some stuff, but not all. We don't have an 8 Step here, so I am not sure all what will/wont' work, but it will have limitations : (
