Opinions on the Nova Modulator
Wanted to gauge your opinion on the NM-1 by TC Electronics. I just recently got into ambient music and realized I need a few more pieces to give myself more texture.
I should start and say that I am an amateur and really getting into this, but would like to have options. I don't want to spend a crazy amount on a few effects that I need left, and this looked like a safe bet -- if I ever want to grow and upgrade, I can, but for now I want something versatile and enjoyable without blowing up my pedal board. [EDIT: just realized that you can't have this work like an actual stompbox (with the tap tempo switch acting as an on/off switch]
I need chorus, vibrato, and trem. I believe that is what I am lacking from my current setup (aside from another delay, but thats beyond the point).
Can I get some opinions here? Is this a good sounding pedal for what I want? Are there pedals that offer an all-in-one modulation and the ability to select 2 of them independently (as in without it being a patch?) If I am thinking that the patch system might be flawed let me know... just very confused.
My current setup includes:
MXR Phaser, MXR Flanger, Verbzilla, Hardwire Reverb, DD-7, Boss EQ, DynaComp, Bad Monkey, Wampler Pinnacle, Little Big Muff, and volume pedal.
I do not gig, but hope to one day. Right now, just enjoying where I am at and want something a little extra for the ambient jams.
tl;dr - how is the TC Electronic Nova Modulator for ambient music, seeing as I need chorus, trem, and vibrato.

The Modulator sounds like fun. I've got a EHX Clone Theory that I like a lot.
Maybe ask in the 'Gear for Post Rock' thread. If you have trouble finding it - I could maybe help track it down.
