Quite fair, what I suggested would by no means be "perfecting", I was just throwing out a crazy idea.

I second the idea to have a toggle switch to choose which knob the expression pedal modifies.

A faster, dirtier pitch shifter would also be quite cool.

For the notch, what about using half of the sweep of a knob to control an envelope, and have to control an LFO? Or maybe a crossfade between the two?

I feel like the obvious improvement to the Bitquest! Would presets and MIDI implementation. Then you can feasibly use more than just one effect live.

Also the modulation on the delay could be more useable, but i've figured out where the 5th and octave is on it and then it does become a very useable if quite specifc sound. The knobs are sooo touchy though I find it hard to recall precise settings.

Otherwise, what a damn fine pedal.

^^^ 100% that. It's my only gripe about the pedal, the inability to easily switch between effects/settings live. I don't know how hard it'd be to do, but if Ryan ever were to make a V2 like the Frazz, MIDI options would be beyond wonderful.

Turning the ring mod all the way until it is a tremolo is cool, but sometimes I wish the Bitquest had more range on the ring mod to get more tremolo speeds, or that it had a tremolo effect on the dial.

The clean side ring mod in tremolo territory with reverb sounds really good and Twin Peaks-ish, I think! Perhaps my favorite Bitquest sound.

Envelope control would be my number one mod

The Reverb that I heard was my favorite part

This x1000. I would pay out the arse for a Bitquest with presets.

love this pedal. But if there were going to be changes, my wish list would include:

trails for reverb & delay. particularly with heavy verb it would be great to get a thick pad going and then be able to bypass to trails so it rumbles along without listening to the dry

slower rate on flange, and maybe increase the max feedback on flange too
