    I just watched the demoes for the first time today. Holy…. this thing sounds intense! The double/tripple function knobs are a great idea!

    (I built the yellow pedal in the 2nd pic, which is how I found this)

    “El Capistan”? do you mean “El Capitán”? and this is wrong spelled in all your pedals?…

    @Gon, Pete, our resident Sound Designer thought it would be neat-o to combine the word capstan with El Capitan to create our own word, El Capistan. A capstan is the part of a tape echo machine that helps move the tape through the tape machine. El Capitan is Spanish for the captain. It’s also a 3000ft rock formation in Yosemite National Park here in California. A place where echos are very prominent!
