US Best Synth Pedal

Hi, I just wanted to know what is the best granular synth guitar pedal out there for guitars that is around 100-200 dollars new or used. I already know they say the Electro-Harmonix Superego synth pedal is one of the best, but I always run into issues that are already based on my budget, like the Roland Synth pedal is around $700!!!! Just wanted to know what is the best pedal including the Superego, because I'm desperate right now to find one and add it to my pedal collection!!!!



Sincerely Yours,

An airy, soundscapy, old celestion type of keyboard/synth sound type pedal, something that sounds like what Fallujah used on their song Sapphire, and the album, The Flesh Prevails, that sort of synth pedal.

Do you know what a granular synth is?

These are two completely different things.

The supergo tracks analog audio, basically understands what you're playing and puts some funny sounds under it.

The roland guitar synth system is a hexaphonic pick up you put on your guitar, it converts everything into midi and then lets you play whatever sounds with that midi data.

Get something of the sorts of a quadraverb 2.

If it absolutely has to be a pedal then the supergo's gonna work, or a digitech space station, or a POG-like pedal paired with a delay and a reverb.

Moog fx for guitars though aren't synth engines.

I do not think that I have seen a pedal that qualifies as a "Granular Synthesizer." Everything in that category that I have seen is a computer program. You are talking about some pretty involved capabilities, there:

https://www.soundonsound.com/sos/de...larworkshop.htm

Most stomp box synthesizers are little more than Envelope Filters, which was one of the primary elements of the analog synthesizers of the 1970s. The few synth pedals that go beyond that are limited production, expensive units that often require the installation of a "Hex" pickup to make them work.

Of course, there is always the Moog Taurus III. And you won't even need your guitar!

"Airy Soundscapes" leads me to suggest a reverb with octave generation/shimmer. From my research on this: 1. Walrus Audio Descent 2. Digitech Polaris 3. Micro POG + HOF

But does this sound like this?

I really want to know what pedal this is, and if it is affordable around the $100 range?
The sound of Sapphire always dazzles me, mostly due to the fact that the guitars are the synthesizers, not any keyboard or synthesizer at all!!!!

It likely is an AXE FX, not a pedal.

The sound comes from a synthesizer which is controlled by the guitar.

Guitars aren't synths.

Yes a quadraverb 2 can sound like that, among other things.
You'll not sound exactly like that anyway 'cause there's mixing involved in them songs, while you'd be playing live.
