Somebody on HCAF posted this over the weekend and I thought that it looks really cool, and seems like it could really save a lot of tuning/string hassles IF it sounds good and works as advertised. The summer NAMM video of it makes it seem pretty darn neat. I just ordered one, but it's back ordered @ the moment. I will do a review as soon as I get it.

That'll be cool if it works, although I'm doubting it.

The NAMM video of the product in action was pretty impressive, it did NOT seem to color the tone at all and is true bypass. I've got high hopes!

This is the exact pedal i've been looking for, for AGES.

I seriously hope it works well (im sure it will, only a pitch shifter after all) so i can play in B standard and D standard on the same strings

I have been looking for something like this for ages too.
It's not cheap but not outrageously expensive either. Supposedly they are hard to get though and there is a waiting list.

Considering this would eliminate the need to buy extra guitars i think the 200 dollar price tag is very reasonable. Hell, i think that i would pay up to 300-400 bucks if it did what its supposed to do accurately and save me the trouble of lugging around my standard, low-tuning and backups.

Exactly. My only worry is the sound with distortion, and then the sound with distort at gig-volumes...

My friend uses the pitch shifter (I think, maybe it has a detune?) on his RP200 to do this and it seems to work fine. But I've never played around with it too much.

I've also wanted something like this for a long time... I think I'll end up buying one if they work well.
I have a huge fear if rays.

The DigiTech Whammy has done this forever, but if this does it better, then it'll be worth it...

I'm very interested in this as well.
I don't think it's available yet,

The sound quality (well, at least the tone) in the Namm video on Youtube was pretty bad. I'd be interested in seeing higher quality videos of this.

I want it just to screw around with. I am a semi newb who plays mostly in standard tuning and this pedal would allow me to goof around with some detuned songs...

Wow, that looks pretty neat. But yeah, the sound quality of that demo wasn't great. I'll wait for some decent demos on YouTube and maybe try one out before I buy one.

The available video clips don’t sound particularly good. Various $2,000+ Eventide units do exactly that (apart from many other things). And they do EVERYTHING ELSE really great EXCEPT when you try to detune....that’s when they start to sound pretty bad, not much better than the Digitech Whammy, where all ‘whole-guitar-detuning’ attempts sound quite awful, particularly when you play full chords....tried several different Eventide harmonizers, but always ended up using a detuned guitar that sounded 100 times better than an “electronically detuned” guitar in standard tuning. If they can make something really decent-sounding for $200, then they are absolute geniuses!
