volante is also an adjective derived from "volar" (to fly), so basically "flying".

I'm certainly interested, especially if it's a looper. The looper marketplace is full of holes.

Volante is also another word for "flyer", here in Mexico at least.

It has a spring reverb of sorts as well :)
I'm looking for nothing at this moment in time

Challenger for the Timeline?

I don't think so. Timeline offers many more delay types, whereas Volante is focussed on 'vintage' delay types, with the obvious intent of having 'warm', thick, syrupy tones.

I love the idea of this pedal, feels like it could work well as a performance pedal live. The looper really makes it appealing as its one thing I still need more
capabilities. Probably the most excited I have been for a Strymon since the El Capistan..

Yes, I thought this too however wanted to see if anyone agreed with that

I'm thinking they might have another product of two to announce but they are waiting a few days, a week or until NAMM to announce more so each product can get ample attention on it's own? :hmm:

This looks great. I could see making this a permanent resident in an aux loop. Looks like a nice destination for MIDI from the Digitakt, too.

It's a strange omission that their page doesn't include a separate blurb addressing its looping capabilities.

I'm always pretty skeptical of digital spring reverbs, but I'm willing to give Strymon a chance. Looking forward to hearing some synth uses.

Edit: $399 isn't such a bad price, either.

I have a Timeline but this looks very interesting to me.

The reverb sounded OK to me. Did you watch the Peter Celi video? Actually, I think Peter Celi does the best gear videos around. I enjoy just listening to them. He really vibes with the gear.

I can also see me getting this, it's really well thought out. The playback head buttons are an excellent feature.

looks like the looping is addressed under the "sound on sound" section. it doesn't seem like a full overdubbing looper.. but more a "capture the delays that are currently happening" and loop that.. but with no ability to overdub punch in/out such as on a dedicated looper.... i could be (and hope that i am) wrong though...
