Yes, the voice vandal.
OK but didn't live up to the blurb.
Echo works fine, but changing the echo time doesn't change pitch, just
less memory (though you can get a pitch change by placing a finger on the
circuit, so I think that a mod would be possible)
The "pitch shift" is just an oscillator which chops the signal, kind of a
ring mod (and leaks into the audio slightly all the time)
Well if you really want it, I'd consider a trade maybe.

yes, I thought about that idea for my "Vandal", but never got round to it.
