"Removed the Strymon Tape Echo Pedal. Added a Strymon Mobius for BPM timed Tremelo, Leslie Simulator and much more in the way of modulation to come, as I get my head round all the possibilities. I’d like to get hold of an Expression pedal for this. Any tips? Well, that’s about it anyway. Pete Carroll my guitar tech, did a great job of cleaning the board up for me and replacing all the cables etc. I am pretty much gig ready. Can’t wait! /AB"more
"The switcher feeds a TC Polytune mini. The loops in the switcher have 8 pedals (1 per loop). They are: Loop 1 – [Suhr Koji Compressor](http://equipboard.com/items/suhr-koji-comp) Loop 2 – [Boss MO-2 multi overtone](http://equipboard.com/items/boss-mo-2-multi-overtone-guitar-effects-pedal) Loop 3 – Strymon Mobius…" - [Pete Thorn](http://www.strymon.net/2014/07/07/waiting-pictures-pedalboard-feature-pete-thorn/).more
Let's get this straight: Your pedalboard will get way too big if you use all the possibilities you will get with the mobius. The mobius sounds absolutely killer without any loss of signal - which you would have to deal with if you use analog pedals instead of this one. In addition the mobius is not as big nor heavy as you might think, it's well built und set up logically. You'll have hours of fun with it!
I just wanted a rotary and a pattern tremolo, but with the money that i'd spend to get it, i could get the Mobius. Apart from great sounds it has too a very twekable possibilities to achieve great sounds. Some effects like Quadrature allows to get some great weird textures. Tremolo is very nice, the pattern tremolo is awesome. I am not a chorus/flanger user, but this effects on Mobius are very 3D-ish and combined with drive or fuzz can make a huge sound. The most useful tool in this pedal is the send/return by far. I use it, pass through my drive chain on it and choosing what i want before or after the modulations. A great goal to Strymon mobius.
It has a wide range of modulation machine types which provide a lot of options with a nice interface as most Strymon products, though sadly it offers a little less extra features compared to those little big ones on TimeLine or BigSky as it has not only less knobs but also because of the lack of playability functions for the switches other than the basic on/bypass and tapping tempo (or optional speed switching in the Rotary machine). It would be nice to see some future firmware bringing a little more playful utility to those or at least extending that optional speed switching on the Rotary to the other modulation machine types. Another annoying point is that in the Rotary machine you can not specify an exact BPM for the slow speed without altering the regular one, and you can not choose to always start slow or fast, so it gets kinda chaotic in the action.
The best modulation pedal ever. The quality of the sound is incredible and the options and ranges of each one of the effects is amazing. The option to save until 200 presets divided in 100 banks is excellent and adding the fact that you can name each preset, it ease the exploring of the banks and presets to play live.
The best option for modulation processor.
This one is not a one trick pony. it's versatile and can replicate all of the sounds it promotes really well. There is a slight difference in authenticity in sound when comparing like for like to analog pedals of the same nature however to me when I use this in my band at full noise the debate between digital and analog quickly disappears . I use this because of the midi functions paired with a GigRig g2 and has kicked 4 pedals off my pedalboard. A brilliant space saver with studio quality effects.
