This thing is a monster. How you using it, what are you putting in the feedback loop?

I immediately went for distortions. Tube Screamers responded better than Rats (for me/bass) but I am eager to run all things through it.

Loving that each button can be momentary on or off...super versatile.

:D
I find it's quite unpredictable if a pedal will sound good with it. You never know exactly what you're gonna get before combining them. It's fun with vibrato and unusual reverbs (reverse, mod, etc).

My to-do list with Kniv:

* put a buncha clicky hard-switch pedals like the Csidman in it and use the relay-switching to blast them in and out of the signal
* slap Tensor in there and use Kniv’s feedback control to get some additional repeats while Tensor is in NXT mode, or really any other mode for that matter
* put Judder in there to keep out its idle noise in high gain situations rather than modding it
* reroute signal path so I’m stepping on Kniv more in a live setting and dancing around with my big clumsy feet less
Great deals with lordgalvar, filipre, seten, DannDubblewe, PumpkinPieces, backwardsvoyager, DADGBD, jwar, JonnyAngle, dandolin, pd~, Dungus, dminner

Been checking out a lot of feedback loopers lately, and I must say that Kniv seems exceptionally well thought-out :snax:

Thanks! The funny part is that I have sold about 40ish of these in total since I designed it in 2015/16ish? :lol: :facepalm:

What do you think of it? I'm at the point in pedal buying that I'm really reaching for other pedals I "need" but having something like this that could put a new angle on pedals I already have is compelling.

Really liking it - I mean, it's a feedback looper (duh, they all basically do the same thing, and so much is about what you put in them), but with *really* well thought-out touches like the state-changing footswitches, expression control, separate loop and dry level and invertible dry phase to make things nicerer or weirderer, choice b/w positive and negative feedback (more flavas!) - it just does what it's designed to really well and gives you tons of flexi, plus it also happens to do a bunch of other utilitarian things (chack that manual). I looked a long time, and while there were still maybe a feature or two I would have put on my ultimate list (like maybe a post-loop limiter, but pfft, come on), and I could be wrong, but nothing came close, including the new Fairfield jawn (and I am a Fairfield jawnboy).
Ultimate rec'd. :excellent:

fave uses so far: rolling my own oscillation fuzz; gooseing shy flangers into overload :)*

:)* :)* :)* You're probably aware of it, but you actually have hard limiters (clipping diodes) available on both outputs (SND and OUT) that will limit your signal to ~1.5Vpp

Just got this, and have only played with the EHX Mel 9 in the effect loop, but am getting some really cool wobbly, detuned string sounds with it. Going to make a list of my pedals and how it plays with the various different effects.

I've been loving mine as a way to add in a dry blend to dirt. and then play w the feedback...cause...ya know...feedback...

I put my Sentimental Bob Tacana Tremolo in the loop today and am getting some cool, swooshy, distorted reverse sounding trem. Really digging it for certain pedals!
