I'd like to offer a different opinion from the user community: I'm rather glad that Eventide's units aren't trying to be another CE-2 / Small Clone modeller. The most exciting thing to me about the WhateverFactor pedals is that they're approximating the Eventide sounds from the studio racks, in pedal format.
I have a bunch of analog gear. Now, I get to have Eventide's studio algorithms. Very cool.
