At the suggestion of a friend of a friend, I purchased this pedal to create ambient textures on the pedal steel guitar. I was particularly interested in the latching function of the dream mode. Since my feet are busy when I play the steel, I found it appealing to have the ability to press the sustain switch with my finger to lay down an ambient pad on top of which I can continue playing with my dry signal (pressing the switch again to cease the pad with a nice, natural decay). Aside from playing in a rock band, I play in a low-key, Americana trio with fairly sparse instrumentation. Being able to set afloat some pillowy, atmospheric vibes underneath the normal steel stuff I play is kind of a revelation. Additionally, it's just really fun to use this feature when I practice alone. It's like I'm being accompanied by some cosmic convergence of a cherubic choir and a Nick Cave/Warren Ellis film score, at once haunting and beatific. Admittedly, I've not had the pedal long and haven't explored all its possibilities. Nonetheless, I can confidently say that this pedal succeeds in doing the very targeted and specific thing I hoped it would, and it does so inspiringly. I look forward to entering both the depths of my subconscious and the nooks and crannies of the universe with this pedal in years and light years to come.
