It has a more complex sound than the Freeze, but the timbre is definitely closer than the OG SE.

I picked one of these up recently and have been very impressed.

I have the regular superego also, and the separate attack and decay knobs really expand the range of sounds for the sampled notes. And the built in fx sound very good and save a lot of real estate.

But the most pleasant surprise for me was being able to use the fx on the dry instrument signal. I must have missed that feature if they mentioned it in the demo. For me that really changes this from a suped-up specialty pedal to a very versatile tool.

That definitely makes it more useful if the effects are decent enough. Nice little multieffect box for freeze and things you don't quite need enough to buy separately.

Yeah, the effects are pretty good. Since there are just two knobs for each effect you don't have quite as much control as you would in a lot of stand-alone effects. But IMO the actual sound is totally fine for most of the effects as I use them. I bring a separate delay, but that's more for flexibility than sound - I think the on-board delay sounds fine and use it to get cascading delays or a normal delay when the dedicated delay sound is doing something wacky.

The only effects on the superego plus I’ve found remotely useful so far has been mod, rotary, and trem. Wondering how others are using the other effects? I’ve got a flange in the loop bc the onboard flange isn’t that good.

Ordered one today. Wanted a new droney freeze mode pedal and having those extra fx is really good, especially trem and rotary which I like the sound of, but I mostly wanted it to play synthy pads through my Rendezvous. Mmmmmmm

What woul dbe cool to see is the normal SuperEgo pimped with the envelope control section of the SE+ but without the effect section. that would be awesome!

I've had it for a while now, and I'd trade the FX section in a heartbeat for some kind of internal gain control and a filter section. The built-in effects are basically all too limited and mostly sound kinda insubstantial to me. :idk: Something like POG/Holiest Grail Input Gain and maybe like the Microsynth or HOG filter section would really round out the synthy vibes, imo.

I get your points.
Is the internal filter fx not that brilliant?
Stereo IN/OUT would have also been REALLY welcome!

I too would much rather have an expanded superego without the FX. I'd buy that one but for now I'm sticking with the original version.

It's one of the better effects on there sound-wise; messing with it is what made me wish for a more controllable one. Unless you want to break out an expression pedal, it just sits wherever you set it, so I found myself wishing for some built-in means to animate it, envelope or LFO or something.

So.... Is there any reason why my frozen sound should just fade away instead of sustaining infinitely? I have it on latching mode. Freeze a sound and when I let go of the switch to twiddle with it, it instantly starts to fade away. If I hold down the switch, the sound sustains. It is definitely in latch mode. If it is broke, I'm going to be angry because I already kinda hate EHX pedals.

Does it do it with Decay all the way up?

The decay knob should control that. From the manual: "When set fully CW, the frozen signal plays indefinitely until a new freeze function is triggered."

Ah right, i will check. I thought the decay was just for how quickly it fades when you turn off the freeze. Thanks dudes.
