    Yup - you want a synth with a Roland GK compatible input. GR33, GR55, etc.

      (writing info. down) Thanks, Phil. It's something that's kind of on my distant acquisition list.

        If they want to issue a polysynth, why not stop fooling around with silly pedals and do the real thing?

          Assuming EHX is using its polyphonic pitch shifting platform from POG/HOG, I don't see why polyphony wouldn't be possible. Maybe they left it mono to more faithfully emulate the synths it is supposed to sound like?

              Well now GAS has struck. I remembered I’ve wanted the Strymon Flint for a while to replace my old homemade Trem and so I could have reverb when going just through my plexi clone.

              And then looking at further reviews of it, I got turned on to the Fulltone SupaTrem2, which sounds better but wouldn’t kill both birds.

              Maybe i should limit my food diet to just bologna sandwiches till this passes. Get a SupaTrem, a Monosynth, and some economical reverb pedal for the end of the chain.

                There's a really good iOS app from Korg that does a nice job of recreating the sound of that classic synth...

                  It is also one of the many classic Korg synths that lives inside my Kronos. Very cool the way they laid out the various synths so that you can program them almost as you would the originals.

                  The virtual MS-20 is a lot of fun!

                    Weeeeell... if you have a Kronos, you don't really need that iPad app...

                    Lucky guy!

                      Yeah, I love that board. Had one since they first introduced it. Ironically, it's the first Korg board I've ever owned as I was never a big fan of their products back in the day. They always seemed to me to be kind of cheaper knock-offs of what Moog, Sequential Circuits, Roland and others were doing at the time. But there really isn't much I can't do with it.

                        Hmm, I do have a Korg R3. 'twas on loan to a friend's band for years, but they have now broken up. Maybe I should just run my guitar through its vocoder!!

                          Mr. Black Effects also make a combo reverb/trem that is cheaper than the Strymon.

                          My personal favorite trem pedal is the Frantone Vibutron, but they are pricey. I use heavy boosts upstream from my trem, which causes some to get washed out and lose depth. I don't have that problem with the Vibutron.
