Logically, the next stomper for Eventide. Include compression, pre and post eq, a versital gate like the Rockman Smartgate, and of course a miriad of distortion choices. Get crackin Eventide and send me a proto-type to beta 🙂
I've though about this too, but in the end, I have to disagree.
The world needs a good, quality, pure analog (TUBE!!) preamp in pedal form with MIDI control. (Make an Ibanez Tube King or AMT SS-20 programmable and MIDI switchable. That would be PERFECT.) I don't know that Eventide is the right fit for such a product. Feel free to prove me wrong, Eventide.
My plan is to get a MIDI controlled true bypass looper and use it entirely for distortions, compressors and EQs. Not as compact or elegant, but it is a no-compromise solution.
Hey, crazy thing. In my last reply I mentioned how I wish something like the AMT SS-20 were MIDI switchable. Well it turns out it is. You need to buy an add-on called the AMT FS-2MIDI.
The preamp does not have every sound imaginable (just 3 tube channels) but I've found that a good tube preamp, my volume and tone knobs on my guitar can create amazing variety. Right now I'm using a 2 channel combo amp with eventide boxes in the FX loop, so this is a step up.
The SS-20 is a pretty high-gain, "rocker" preamp, so if thats not your style, an Ibanez tube king has a very close circuit to the old Chandler Tube Driver used by Eric Johnson, but it's not MIDI capable.
