That's right, Bill. We're beaming mind-control zombie waves at you.
I am impressed that your fine new pedal the Synth9 is virtually identical to what I predicted EHX would make a year ago. Too bad about not using my suggested name the Syn9 though, I would have loved ads that said "Mike Matthews wants you to live in Syn". Oh well, that boat done sailed.
But, could it be that our comments on this forum actually INFLUENCED the resulting product? Gasp!
So now this time, we're going to tell you what we want. Yes, somebody is going to suggest a box with 43 jacks, 200 knobs, cellular MIDI, a built in iPad, and a microwave. Maybe it would sell.
But I'm going to stick with the ____-9 concept. I know they sell well, and they are kind of cute, like collecting Pez or something.
But here's what I want: I want the Pad9. Background synth sounds. Think a good synth brass sound. Yeah! A standard synth string orchestra. Right! If the Synth9 can't do it, I still want a Solina String Ensemble like in Dream Weaver with the grindey chorus. Yum!
Pad sounds that are designed to sit behind the player but fill out his playing. Swells and fills and great backgrounds. Many with an Attack control.
And have them keep working on cleaner pitch shifts. We want 4ths, Min 3rds, 7ths, 9ths, this is a DEMANDING group of people here!
Don't get too critical, Bill, remember the mind-control zombie waves.
