I just picked up a TC Flashback Triple Delay about a month ago, so it looks like I'll be missing the boat on this one but I'll be keeping an eye out for demos for sure.

I don't even like delay and reverb much but I want it.

I've always enjoyed Devin's spacey reverb sound, this may be too good to pass up.

This would be at the very tippy top of my wish list if I didn't already have a Big Sky/Timeline in my main rig

It's a shame the unit looks really naff.. and so big!

Will keep an eye on reviews though.. I've been itching for an Eventide H9, but this allows more to happen at once.

Doesn't look too big for being such a full-featured pedal. Looks to be about the size of the Fulltone Fulldrive.

don't like the look of it ,much prefer a clean simple design ,but it sounds like a good package if it delivers on sound

like that there are separate knobs for the 2 delays and reverb rather than using an internal menu .much better on the fly

size wise its what I'd expect from a 3 way pedal . I'd rather a bit of space rather than having it all crammed together .

I love my tonal recall but its a nightmare in the heat of battle to hit the right switch at times

You could have it all ,

If I can sync the looper via MIDI with my Beat Buddy I'm gonna be rather interested in that pedal, because it could replace two others on my board!

Here' a video of him doing a demo with one of the Anderton's dudes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJx90qlJhfo&t=301s

It almost seems better for the pedal to be up on a table at arms reach. It's like an ambient console ... so cool. Correct me if I'm wrong, but those on-the-fly distortion/mixing sounds he's able to do, I don't even think a Timeline and Big Sky together could do that!

So, little update for you guys. I randomly found on a Facebook page that the Ocean Machine was available to preorder through Osiamo, the US importer of the Mooer stuff. This was back in the middle of January.

I've been in touch with a rep there about the availability of the pedal, trying to figure out when it might ship and they have had literally no information. Totally clueless.

I checked the Mooer USA Facebook page and it said the pedal would be available on 2/22. I was surprised it was on the Facebook but they rep didn't have any information so I emailed him to confirm.

I got an email back from Osiamo saying that production has been delayed and they won't be shipping until mid-April now. Despite what the Facebook page said.

So if you're looking to buy one, you'll be waiting a while. Evidently mid-April is just a target datbdand it might be sooner but might be later. They haven't even started making the damn things yet.

Just an update for you to ponder.

GREAT DEALS WITH: guitar_player4_2_0, dedsouth333, sevenstringer, stratjacket, bloodnail, JD27, MIL8, stringplinker, maxaidingares, Captain Butterscotch, ridner, ibanez4life_SZ and many more...

Thanks for sharing, I've been wondering and unable to find any info. I preordered one of their micro preamp pedals and I am tempted by this one too.
