Hey! I like some o' dem! Well, two of 'em, anyways. So far, I like their 'Growl' photo-sensor ring-mod pedal. Cool. Could be a lot of fun. Wormhole might be alright, too. I personally don't have any use for old Nintendo and Atari sounds, though. But I guess some folks enjoy that.

I was unaware of Banana Pedals. Thanks, picker! cool twothumbs

@Caevan - Old Game sounds are definitely a thing, right now. Do a search on "Chiptunes", and you'll hear more than you want or need to. At a recent Robotfest, I was set up next to a young guy who was using a Mac to play otherwise recognizable tunes that sounded like old video game soundtracks. The funniest was The Cure's Friday I'm In Love. One of the earliest experiments I heard, a few years back, was a version of Ah-Ha's Take On Me that sounded like Super Mario Bros. Some tunes deserve it more than others . . .

Oh, yeah, I noticed that it's been 'a thing' for a while now. 'S jus' not MY thing, I guess.

Haahh! "Friday I'm In Love"- nice!

"Bela Lugosi's Dead" (a favorite tune of mine- I'm RABID for it, all year 'round!) would be HYSTERICAL that way... ! Especially with super Lo-Fi, chirpy digitally-derived octave-up vocals... ! And, of course, all tape-echo effects replicated (the El Capistan does a stellar job at THAT!).

Oh, man, this is why I know we're brothers!

LOVE that tune, one of the few Goth tunes I play on Guitar! Another one that would be really funny to hear is Rush's Tom Sawyer . . . Just think about it for a minute.

THANX, PMAN !

Before hearing anything one notices the diff approach to mechanical (if not technical) design. Points for that off the bat. thu
Nice they give ya varied angles views of the gear, too.

Cool stuff !

Too bad only USA outlet's up in Mass. (I prefer hands on testing & local shops for supprt, etc---just so much easier)
That Aurora box alone shows why you'd wanna try it yerself to investigate possibilities !

Here's a shortcut to their YT vids

I particularly like this "disguise yer gear" idea !

& dig this idea for use w/ a low-cost kboard !
You could manipulate the effect & play other lines on top !
