    1. I think it’s somewhat derived from “Lay Lady Lay” by Bob Dylan.

      Seems like a reasonably nice reverb for guitar nerds who like their reverbs in something they can stomp on.

    1. I like the look of this reverb pedal, but I admit: If I don’t have the Strymon BigSky, I’m just going to sit around day-dreaming about owning a Strymon BigSky.

  1. The thing about the Big Sky is that it’s incredibly musical in a way no reverb can touch, and it also plays incredibly well with synths wham focusing on sound design, which is uncommon. I have tried to get a similar effect with reverb plugins, even sophisticated IR, to no avail.

    1. God, I hate you can’t edit posts with typos. How about switching to Discuss or something? And BTW this site is plain AWFUL on mobile 🙁

  2. This may not be to a synth players liking but the “Electro-Harmonix Cathedral Stereo Reverb Pedal” is quite impressive for a pedal reverb IMHO.

  3. EHX makes some of the coolest pedals. Check out the Superego Granular synth, for example, that has an fx loop to add to the sound. Or the Epitome, that has a Holy Grail Plus, Electric Mistress, and Micro Pog all in the same pedal. I like it that by the end, they don’t even sound much like guitars in the demos.
