Wow an overdrive/distortion/fuzz with new/unique concepts and it actually sounds good? I anticipate this being super popular

 

I have to hand it to them that is a great design and great sounding pedal. As mentioned in the video the sliders will probably be much less reliable than sealed rotary pots for example but what a cool design. 
 

One thing I noticed is that when he pushes the gain slider up a lot of the action seems to be at the last maybe 5% of travel. In other words they didn’t seem to get that slider in the correct taper IMO but compromised because they wanted the sliders. Still very very cool

It's £749!!! [omg]

So it will be taken up by various high-profile players (when live music returns) and copied.  At that price it needs to be astonishing.  

But programmable is the future - the Source Audio eq is getting a considerable rep:

That looks like a step up from my Boss GE-7.   I'd like to check it out sometime.

I remember wanting an A/DA Midi valve preamp back in the day.   They were cool.  And wasn't the Marshall rack pre-amp programmable too?

I had an ADA MP1 and used it until it died.  In reality it probably just blew a preamp tube but I was too young and naive to know that.  So I went out and bought a Marshall JMP1. 

I can confirm both were programmable with MIDI and worked with a MIDI controller pedal.  

The ADA had phantom power and the Marshall did not.  But other than that, the Marshall is far superior IMO. 

My problem was, I was still using the old ADA solid state power amp.  Tube power amps are really expensive.  I needed new speakers too.  Ended up going with a Fender amp but I still have the JMP1 waiting for the day I can afford to make a nice rack.  I think it actually gained value at this point. I'm seeing them for $1000 - I payed around $800 brand new if I remember correctly.
