Added a simple patch bay for easy guitar/amp in/out:

And the AMT EX-50 arrived for the SY-1 giving me room to put my delay on the board - happy days!

Interested in your experience with how the AMT works out for you. I have been very tempted to get mini expression and volume pedals, but have been unsure about the feel and range of sweep vs my trusty Moog ep3 and EB VP Jr.

Yeah it's an interesting one, as it's certainly different. I was previously using the MI Audio expression pedal, the change was purely for space saving. The full size pedal was definitely more controllable, and I liked having a knob to set what "minimum" was, but not a deal breaker for me with the AMT.
I'm liking the AMT, at least it does what I need it to. It's not as easy to subtly adjust it I guess, but I'm usually a toe down or heel down kind of guy, not a huge amount of in between other than the smooth transition between the two. I'd say for expression it works well and well worth the change to fit an extra pedal on my board. I'd probably hesitate with a volume pedal, the extra control you get from a full size pedal there is probably needed.

Smooth transition (swells) is all I'm after so maybe it would work for me. Hrmmm

Here's my current board:

Image

Guitar > Sound Saw > Feedback Looper (2x freeze pedals in loop) > Magnus Modulus > Axoloti (custom vibrato/trem/reverb patch) > PS3 > SMMH > Mini. Expression pedal runs into the PS3 -- I modded it to route expression to the time knob in all modes. Gets great random skippy glitches in the delay modes.

This typically runs into a Yamaha THR10 out into my mixer. There's also a Pladask Fabrikat and EQD Avalanche Run on the desk hooked up to the mixer sends. I also to a lot of sampling/resampling/looping with Monome Norns.

It's been like this for awhile so I'm getting a little itchy to make some changes. Not sure what though. :D

First impressions of the Pitch Fork Plus are that it's got a bit more of a learning curve than I'm used to, so I'm gonna be sitting down with a manual for a little bit. It came with some presets built-in, a couple are pretty good (like the de-tune chorus sound from the POG2!!!!), but a couple are kind of cheesy. I will probably get rid of the factory presets for the ones I dislike, and only have a few. Basically, I really only want POG type sounds, but I figure that the Pitch Fork can do SO much more, so it was a good pick. Tracking is excellent so far too!
So, I've been playing it a bit more, and I don't like it. The controls aren't very intuitive beyond changing the pitch up or down. And the more I realize it, the octaves aren't very natural-sounding, but kinda cheesy. Almost like they were intending to be synth-like. Also, I realized after trying a bunch that I'm only interested in octaves up or down, not the intervals in between. So, I'm sending it back and getting the new BOSS OC-5 instead. I like it's simpler interface and controls.
