Craziest guitar pedals for use with synths and samplers?

So does anyone have favourite guitar or FX pedals they like to run stuff through? Im looking for stuff that is more "odd" and "out of control" rather than utilitarian (plenty of software FX for that).

digitech synth bass has 1 or 2 weird effects and the normal settings are good for turning basic stuff into subtractive analog niceness.

Re: Craziest guitar pedals for use with synths and samplers?

I don't own any guitar pedals, but i've been looking to buy some weird ones for the purpose of running software synths/samplers through.

This guy does some cool demo videos of pedals that are normally a bit more out there. The count to five pedal, in particular, seems really interesting [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


This is like vocaloid for ur guitar which is funny, and the demo is surprisingly emotional if you let it be lol [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

The electro harmonix Superego is pretty wild. Awesome on pretty much anything.

WMD Geiger Counter, maybe? It has both eurorack and stompbox versions. It's a wavetable based waveshaper with bitcrusher and other controls. You can go real crazy with this pedal!


You can find lots of other demo videos of it

Re: Craziest guitar pedals for use with synths and samplers?

Not a pedal, but the Lexicon Vortex is a truly wild rack effects box. It was kind of a failure when it launched (marketed poorly and kind of complex to program), but there's absolutely nothing like it.

that looks pretty cool. I didn't realize it worked as a looper too. I'm not sure how much I would love it for my studio set up, but for live, mmm mmm.

Re: Craziest guitar pedals for use with synths and samplers?

Earthquaker devices' rainbow machine is SWEET! I'm saving up for one right now. I found several videos of people hooking it up to synths, but this vid with guitar shows all of the different options the most clearly.

You might be able to find a few more demos if you do some deeper digging, but this is what I found with a quick youtube search.
