That pedal was made for Frisell, just ripe for what he likes to do. Seems like a royal pain in the ass pedal to use though. No thanks. And that could even be great with bassoon (monophonic instrument becomes polyphonic!) but it just seems like such a pain. Freeze and Hold on the HOG was close, and this is a better implementation, but seems a bit unpredictable.
At the very least it needs one of those soft touch switches like what people mod their DL4s with.
I play amplified/electric bassoon. Everything you see me post about remember I'm not using my gear with guitar pretty much ever.
Love what he did with the SuperEgo - it really is a cool pedal.

"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."
mechanical switches suck for pedals like these where hitting the footswitch often can be an integral part of its usage.
I agree. The Boss ME-25 has the best freeze control IMO. You use the expression pedal to lock the sound and control the volume. Heel back is off and moving it forward freezes the sound. Then you can swell it back and forth. Heel back to turn it off and it's ready to go again.
Here's a loop I made when I got my SuperEgo last month. I have a Zoom G3 as my last pedal so run the drum machine and then the looper to layer some sounds.
