Gonna ape you here as well. Like I said in the other thread and on the video, it rendered like shit. Check it if you want some idea of the range, skip around if you like, ignore otherwise :thumb:

Does anyone have a scan of the setting suggestions that ship with the pedal?

It's pretty goddamn epic. Especially when you put the expression pedal on the PY.

I think someone else may have mentioned this, but this thing is awesome as a modifier of other pedals. I'm actually keeping it last in my chain.

Anyone curious about the FM might find this video I made informative/entertaining: https://www.instagram.com/p/BSH-ywwg8Wr
I basically constructed a really primitive sequencer by generating an oscillation on the Dream Reaper, then tuning the Pretty Years' notch filter to a nearby tone & turned on the FM. Wild stuff y'all.

Also hell yea Eric is right, reverb -> PY is killer

solo tunes:
completed works || loosey goosey releases
associated acts:
Raab Zamboni (fake jazz/real noise//sax, modular synth, editing, misc) || Field Guide (my best friends//sax on 2 tracks)

I make t-shirts, patches, koozies, buttons, CDs, sometimes tapes, and eventually i'll start working on pedals again. DM me for pricing!

i run delay into PY tho.

and the FM really comes into its own when using a synth or drum machine, and opens up the whole CRAZY fuzz sound for the guitar.

Over the weekend I figured out that if you can sweep the notch filter, you could basically fake a phaser. So I pulled the LFO out from the WMD Protostar and yay fake phaser.
