I'm looking for some setting suggestions for setting up a Modfactor patch to get a wetter, squishier, quack, wah sound like a Mutron. That's the best description I could come up with.
Look forward to to some ideas. Thx. I have the other 2 Factors and Space if that opens up more possibilities.

Where do you run the MF in you chain? I have found that having the MF in front of the amp and in front of any gains greatly enhances the filter-type effects. Frankly, all of the filter-type effects sound wrong (to me) when in the fx loop or after the gains. i couldn't dial anything in like I 'd hoped. When I moved it, great sounds were behind every turn of the knob! Of course, this is at the expense of some of the other effects like chorus, but I actually prefer the chorus in front of the gain rather than in the effects loop (plus I have a great chorus built into my amp if I get the itch). Before I moved the pedal in my chain, I was about to go buy some other pedals because the MF just didn't sound right to me. Good luck.

I can't help you with the ModFactor, but I have a couple of raw ideas for the PitchFactor. Neither one is ideal. Your best bet is still the Modfactor.
The basic "Mutron" preset in this post uses the Octaver algo, which might range a little too low for "-onbass". SynthWahPedal here is just that – an expression pedal-controlled wah sound. Synthonizer algorithm – no envelope control available.Quote:a wetter, squishier, quack, wah sound like a Mutron.
I have a first-run Mutron III pedal here. The Gain control (and its mild-to-outrageous distortion) plays a big part in the final sound. You'll see a lot of vocal/formant filters accentuate the effects with at least some internal pre-distortion.
Of course, the 'classic' setup is lowpass filter [LP Mode], driven upwards to quite a high Peak frequency (Low or High Range depending on the instrument). But you can get some milky sweeps with bandpass or highpass mode, and a nice synth-y attack with Drive (sweep direction) Down.
Best I got. Maybe this will give you some starting points.
