(particularly the mode selection switch) Build quality on my four XAOC modules is exceptional. :tu: yeah, I'm not questioning xaoc's build quality (which I assume is top notch) but thether knobs are screwed or popped in à là T-14 ...

plus you can set it up so it sends you emails when certain modules show up on the used market which is nice to get a feel for this modules real second hand price level after a while.

+1 for the rubicon2 & dixieII+ & wavefolder combo

i am thinking about getting myself an Analog Heat to Saturate and Distort my Synths buuuuut .... for its price one could get a lot of pedals .... do you think its worth it?
