Guys who are using this for pitch-shifting/Whammy: where are you placing the Ring Thing in your chain? Before or after dirt?

sorry--i was thinking of the upper and lower sidebands, which you can do in RM mode. but yeah, in pitchshift mode--it's just one.
No it can't.

also does polyphonic pitch shifting/harmonizing really well (some say better than the POG/HOG).

Presence76 - July 2011: "I use the EP-2 Pedal with my Ring Thing and when I use it for pitch shift (up 1 octave), while the pedal is in toe down position, there is a fast warble to the notes. Even the led of the “Preset” switch blinks as the note warbles. If I step on the Preset switch, both the blinking and the warble stop, but if I use the expression pedal, the blinking and warble are back. I can’t tune out the warble with the fine tuning, either. It gets better, but is still there."
Flick (EHX Staff) - October 2011: "I just want to mention that we are aware of the warble problem in the Ring Thing when using an expression pedal but we have not had the time yet to fix it. We hope to have a fix by the end of November. I have no idea how we are going to update units out in the field though."
Presence76 - January 2012: "Hey-just received my Ring Thing back with a Software Update and it’s working great! No more warble! The e-mail I used was “firstname.lastname@example.org” Not sure how they’re going to tackle the update for everyone, but there is definitely a fix! I’m very happy with this pedal now."

I guess EXH will fix it for the new batch of Ring Things :idk:
Do you guys have problems when using an expression pedal?

yep. If the RT could do both lower and upper octaves simultaneously I would have sold it my Mpog and gotten one a while ago. The RT tracks really well - from the short amount of time I got to play with it.
I think the Micropog tracks slightly quicker. The Micropog actually tracks faster than the Pog, Pog2 and Hog too.
