The OpenStomp Coyote-1 is an open source audio effects processor built for guitar players. With the Coyote-1 users can develop custom audio effects in software (like distortion, echo, chorus etc.), mix multiple effects to build "patches", and exchange those effects and patches with the OpenStompTM community.

 

A companion Windows application (OpenStomp Workbench) allows users to combine effects into patches graphically, and to move patches and effects between the Coyote-1 device and their PC's disk.

 

The Coyote-1 O/S is open source so users can tweak it to behave any way they like.

 

At the heart of the Coyote-1 is the Propeller from Parallax. The Propeller contains 8 independent processor cores running simultaneously at 80MHz with a unique architecture supporting a high-level byte coded language called "Spin", and a low-level assembly language with an amazingly versatile instruction set.

 

The Propeller development tools are all free, and the Propeller architecture allows users to develop firmware with nothing more than a simple USB cable.

 

Its revolutionary architecture allows the Propeller to generate video in software by adding just three external resistors, so the Coyote-1 includes a video out port which can be used by developers for debugging or adapted to implement things like graphical tuners, spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes, or light shows.

Looks good, although the Line6 one looks to be about half the size.

 

I guess it's a matter of which gets a better community going, with this one started at a disadvantage because of all the tonecore pedals already out there.
