Glad you like it! This guy has been in development for nearly a year, and I'm really glad to have it available finally. Web page just went up with in-depth manual, block diagram, etc. and it's in stock:

I think Zach did a great job of explaining the FMeron, which is not easy with a pedal like this, but I'm happy to answer any questions you guys may have about it.

edit: it only just occurred to me based on your title that this pedal's name could also be a Tammy II quote on Parks and Rec.

:lol:

He actually did a great job explaining the pedal.

You did a wonderful job with the sounds on this one and, as usual, I approve of the somewhat purplish enclosure. :thumb:

this one is incredible sounding. How is the tracking on guitar? Also, curious as to what the hardware is. I know Don is active on the fv-1 forums, is this guy fv-1 based? anyways, awesome job!

Thanks Teej! It tracks well on guitar, though the standard pitch tracking disclaimers apply - it'll track better with the tone rolled off on the guitar, plucking with the thumb instead of pick, etc. For the adventurous, lots of interesting effects to be had with intentionally glitching out the tracking with unison bends, double stops, arpeggios, and so on. It definitely tracks better and across a wider range (down to low B on bass, relevant for the super-downtuned guitar guys) than most similar synth and octave pedals.

Yep, FV1, although I'll note that the pitch tracking algorithm is significantly refined and improved compared to the more simplistic code that Don has distributed freely in the past.

I've had one since June or July (correct me if I'm wrong here Taylor) and it is fucking amazing guys. This is seriously my favorite ever filter type pedal. It tracks perfectly btw.

I'm so proud to have beta tested this one. It's truly unique and I've never heard anything like it. Love, love, love it.

This sounds fantastic. Thanks for he heads up chanks.
I'm going through a phase where I hate all demos... but that was pretty rad! And quite pedagogical.

OK fuck! I'll try and do it. Make note that I'm not a good guitar player though!




Also, will this pedal help me cover William Patrick Corgan's Wrecking Ball correctly? :lol: :lol: :lol:
