Have a PodXT Live and use the Auto Swell effect a lot...am wondering how this effect compares to the Mooer Slow Engine dedicated pedal. Are they basically identical in performance or is there a reason the Mooer version is better than the PodXT Auto Swell effect?

The Mooer is a copy of the old BOSS Slow Gear.
Mooer pedals are generally well regarded, so it should be A-OK.

Another BOSS copy which I have tried is the Behringer Slow Motion (which they don't make any more) and the SWELL function of the Line6 Echo Park, both work okay.

The best I've tried is the Slow Echo mode in the DELAY section of the BOSS ME-50.

I generally prefer to use a volume pedal for swells though...
