I've got an Outward. Amazing pedal!

It took me about an hour to cycle through the 6 modes, when I plugged it in for the first time.

It reminded me of the Count to Five at some settings, but still, it's completely different. There's more interaction going on.

I've got Generation Loss. It's pretty awesome! You need to get on his mailing list if you want to realistically purchase anything. His batches usually sell out within days, in extreme cases minutes, of announcement.

The Gen Loss is tight after the last batch and the popping issue stopped.

Sign up for the newsletter and buy direct. Goes for both of them, that's how I got mine.

I don't know what easily available pedal would come close.

I've had 'm all!

Generation Loss wasn't for me, at least on guitar. I liked it with synths but I wasn't using it enough to justify it taking up board space.

Had an AARP. Like a good Dwarfcraft Pitchgrinder. A really good one. They're coming out with a v2 soon, very excited about all that jazz. Hoping to grab a v2 when they pop up.

Currently have an Outward. Not realllly jiving with it yet. But I've found a couple settings I do really like and I will hold onto this one for a hot minute to try to really get into it.

I'd love to try an Outward. My CT5 was a lot of fun but I eventually sold it. Maybe I'd bond more with the Outward.

I have an outward and it's a pretty fun and unique pedal. My only issue with it is sometimes it's not loud enough but half the time I think that could be where I have it in my chain.

Sound Design experiments with 2 Outward and a Generation Loss. You can get some really far out results with these pedals.

All the CooperFX pedals are great in theory but they all suffer from a pretty substantial volume drop. I've owned 2 Outwards and 2 Gen Losses and although I really wanted to love them I just couldn't get over the volume loss. It's not a huge deal with synths and line level stuff but kind of a deal breaker for guitar IMO.

Yup, my thoughts exactly. Dug the Outward but it would murder my signal

Red Panda Tensor does time stretching, like Outward, and is readily available.

Tensor is underrated. Probably because of its availability and the lemming like mindset of guitar players.

The time stretching is why I wanted an Outward, but if they can't or don't want to ramp up production, at least there's an alternative now.

My Cooper Generation loss availability announcement went to mu junk mail and I missed out on this run. Damn me and my tech unsavyness.

My Shallow Waters was returned as bunk. Cost a lot of shipping for a DOA POS. Generation loss should cure my ill.

Anyone else just score a Moment Machine? I did and I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll have that on one side and 856 for Zellersasn on the other. I’m hoping for sounds that will allow dolphins to understand how much I despise them.
will trade two mediocre cats for anti-nautilus.
