I just got a Digitech Whammy 4 for mah birthday today and it sounds kinda weird.

I've heard it on plenty of recordings where the thing sounds pretty natural and not so like...spikey. Maybe it's because I'm using a Solid State amp and putting it straight into the input, but I'm not sure.

And it might just be me, but it seems like there's some sort of latency on it, like it's almost not catching up with all my notes.
mine sounds bad also
straight through to input, it robs tone like it payed to
You get nothing! You lose! Good day sir!
That is to be expected really. A good cure would be to grab an 8 band EQ or something and cut off some high frequencies possibly. I'm not sure but lowering the treble on the amp may do a little something, but probably not very much.
