I have been using both the Eclipse and the Eventide, so my guess is
that you find them "sweet" and now your are looking for something more
"rough" or even a bit "evil" - is that so?

Analog has always been "wild"... ("wild" for me is going for the
spectacular). For a couple of years I had an AKAI MFC42 filter bank
that I found very nice, not only for guitar. It has those deep and
shrieking resonance filters that can easily blow loudspeakers if you
don't tweak them carefully. And the distortion is mean; not sounding
like "guitar rig distortion" at all. If it hadn't been forced to, by
lack of income, I had never sold that Akai.
