Very impressed!Just got this pedal after trying "the other droptune" pedal out there. After a day of use, I'm very impressed! The original Whammy feature is very cool, of course, but the quality of the dropped AND raised tuning is great. I always say, a 7 string guitar will always sound more realistic, but with what this pedal is capable of, it's well worth having if you feel like spending the money. Playing open chords dropped down 4, even 5 steps, I didn't hear any warbling. And up-tuning presented no artifacts. My only issue is the slight latency you feel/hear when drop-tuned, but the pros far outweigh the cons.
Again, I've only had it for a day, but so far, I'm a fan!

A Mixed BagWhat is great about this pedal is the original Whammy features. Nothing wrong there. Where things get cloudy is the new functionality from drop tuning/virtual capo'ing.
I'd like to say that this feature works flawless and your clarity is retained. Things aren't muddy and it sounds wonderful. I've read reviews that state this is the case. But to me, to put it bluntly, it sounds decent. The thing I've found with not just this, but other octave/pitch pedals is that you lose all character, all articulation and tone. Things get muddy. No different here. Don't expect miracles. But for quick and dirty down or up tuning, it does the job.
The major seller on this for me was the true bypass. If my signal is gonna be digitally processed, i'd rather it be done only when the pedal is on.

Whammy DT: My critiqueOk, first off, I'm using the Whammy DT on my bass, so here is my take. Well built and very stout device! Huge power draw so don't think you can plug it into your "Voodoo power" supply. This device needs its own A/C power supply! I'm primarily using this to drop a semi tone or two max. It works fine for that but try to drop it any further and the tone begins to warble, especially on the lower deeper notes. The chorus effect is pretty neat but it's an option I won't use very often. The effect is huge and takes up a large amount of space on your board.
