"The music business will be revitalized by musicians, not the labels or Live Nation. When the musicians decide to put music first, instead of money, the public will flock to the fruits and the scene will be healthy again."
I had for a while the Alien Echo, and didn't like it at all. The delay itself was very cold and sterile (some may call it "precise"), similar to the old Boss DD3 but with a tone control (which could tame the highs but not make it warmer). The modulation was interesting, but it was all too cold for my needs.. Got it replaced with an El Capistan which I like better...
The Animal is a good Plexi. The mini toggle allows you to get the Plexi and the modern Plexi sound. Blue Note is a smooth overdrive. Stack them together gives you some excellent tonal options. Their high end series "Afterburner" is another marvelous pedal, but not for the $500 asking price.
