Bubble chamber

Ever happening? While you're here...Cygnet? These both made me happy. Just curious. Been a few years since talks of them.

Well, the Bubble Chamber, as it existed as a prototype years ago, wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, and I didn't know how to get it working any better at the time. So that's why it never came out.

The Cygnet was the first IE pedal and at the time I thought it was cool, but since then so many tap trems have come out with the same feature set since they're using the same LFO chip (Electric Druid TAPLFO). It's not anything about copying because we all just used the same IC, it's just that I'd rather let those folks keep making those and I can focus on exploring my own ideas.

Short answer: no, no IE pedals with either of those names will probably be coming out, but better things in the same vein may spring from their ashes. ;-)

Excellent. That tap lfo chip seems to be a god send.

I'm not sure if it's used in the Catalinbread Semaphore TT, but it's a fantastic pedal and is indeed a godsend. The preamp in it is excellent too since I tend to leave tremolo on quite a bit.
