  1. Argh! I played with a PWM Malevolent into a Hypnosis at Knobcon, fell in love with the effect and almost bought a used one yesterday… now this is here.

    On the plus side: this one costs half as much as a used original Hypnosis. The patch points would be marginally useful at times and it’d be pretty easy to integrate with my modular stuff. Assembly looks easy, no soldering required.

    The minus is that it’s mono. That’s sad news for the chorus/flanger, which on the original can be wonderfully trippy and gooey. Also a slight downside for the delay — I’m not usually into pingpong delays but it actually works really well in this case with short delay times, high feedback and some modulation.

        1. If I remember right, it’s MONO IN, stereo out on the original. My handful of hardware FX connected to my interface as send fx are all stereo. But this kind of effect would go great tethered to a mono synth

  2. Why on earth is it all mono?! It’s for synths that only get better when stereo, not guitar amps?

    This, but double the price and stereo versions of all of the FX would be great!

    (and no, just buying two isn’t the same thing)

  3. Wow, it being mono is quite the omission from their sales pitch. It only pops up all the way down in the specs list. Nobody wants a mono chorus. It’s not how chorus works.
