Not seen much chatter about these digital boutique fx pedals,

have bought an X -Vibe one to try out, watched a couple of youtube vids using these with synths, and sounds promising.. I await delivery.

What exactly is it that makes a pedal by a company the size of IKM "boutique"? I think it would sound far more 2020s to call them "bespoke".

You can try them all today- the hardware is identical to the plug in pedals (as they are all digital) and you can download them from IK to try I got them all free with MAX, they are pretty good (but I don't need them in hardware)

I dont always have my computer turned on, so its nice to just doodle without it on, hence some hardware fx needed ;) But will demo those others now thanks :)

Is it just me, or is the design of these IKM pedals a little too close to Eventide?

This is why I love having DSP effects in my Apollo X6. I tried a couple of Strymon pedals for a while, but it was just a PITA and took up more desk space than I could afford to give up, so I just stuck with the onboard effects and it’s been so much better, especially with all the hardware synths I have.
