Nah anything Doug does will be super rad.
But of those you listed, bug brand, tsp, bitrman, line 6 thinger are all out of production. The heliotrope (and its clone the 8 bit duck) have massive carrier bleed and are unusable live, and all the Chinese mini pedals are basically the same pedal with one single function - sample rate.
A lot of the others are some good suggestions that do cool stuff, especially the scrutator which I haz gas for, but I still think there are massive possibilities, by introducing variability into te sample rate and sample size, filters, fuzz etc.
And it's gotta be able to be built on perf. Because midfi haha
You know what when you lay it out like that it makes sense to have someone make a really decent original one. I have to say I MASSIVELY regret ditching my bugbrand microcrusher for the scrutator, the scrutator is really ugly sounding, and the filter is post crusher so you can't get weird aliasing filter sweeps from it...... bleh. The Bugbrand was really musical sounding. Also I hated the frantabit, I wanted it to be really awesome but just felt it was a more expensive and far less versatile geiger counter civilian issue.
I would probably be on board for a mid-fi SRR..... as long as it was based off that analog circuit (totally perf-boardable, and readily available online schematic from Tom Bugs), as the digital ones don't seem to cut it for me. Fuzz it, filter it (switchable pre/post?) but for gods sake modulate it via envelope or lfo or something, static srr's are kinda boring if you don't have a free hand to tune it.
I don't know how the dwarfcraft pitchgrinder makes it's sound but it reminds me of a circuit bent casio sk-1 (8 bit,11kHz or something?). Never played one but I LOVE the sound of the demos
