Re: Sonic Alienator - bit reduction / decimation pedal

It's funny you mention the Arion phaser. I  found a setting that sounds
somewhere between furious underwater bubbling and the sound on '60s Star
Trek shows where something would appear out of
nowhere...BDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD. My bandmates laughed their asses off, and
for 20-something dollars, I can't really ask for more than that. Sure, the
iffy build quality is a drag, but for now, it's a hoot. (Early versions of
their plastic chorus are going for about $150 now.)
Having said all that, I'm sure the Alienator is worth it if you can swing
