im trying to find an fx pedal that can generate a violin type sound, but not a cheapy crap sounding home play thing.
anyone know of one?

Use a volume pedal with a slight overdrive. Put the pedal heel-down when you pick the note, and move it forward as it sustains.

They're even pedals that do the expression pedal part for you. The pedal reads when you pick and how hard you attack. This determines the swell.



do you know what this pedals called?

Boss used to make one called the "Slow Gear", which basically inverts the amplitude of your picking (soft to loud). Many multi-fx units have a copy of it. A compressor could probably do the same thing if set correctly.

all of the abover or one of the roland guitar synths if its the actuall sound of a violin not the swell.

another you could do is try and copy erif johnsons lead tone, he trys to give it a violin style quality by using rich sustain and nice vibrato.

for settings for eric johnson this article is perfect.

yes!
my words exactly, that thing is awesome, not exactly a violin sound, but close, you could always play it with a bow, that would probably be the closest.
