The Moog pedals are incredibly good quality IMO.

The MF104 delay is great on Keys and has a great deal of control over each function. The delayed signal is very muddy but that is not as much of a disadvantage as I initially thought. It becomes more of an additional texture to your input signal as appose to an independent delay, especially with high feedback.

For me, the best pedal in my set up is the Moog MF-103 Phaser. This thing is f**king amazing!! It can be used with a subtle attitude or dramatically. The phasing sweep has a very wide range and the LFO is very controllable and easy to use creatively. It is also very nice to turn the LFO modulation off and manually sweep the phasing frequency, this sounds fantastic when the phase sweep is controlled via a CV pedal. I also utilise the CV output of my Doepfer Dark Time to control any of the CV features on the pedals e.g. Ring Mod OSC Frequency, Phaser Sweep, Delay time etc. This can give you some really cool results that most pedals would struggle to achieve.

I really sound like a Moog salesman here but despite the high price, I can not fault the pedals. The build quality is exceptional and the 4 in my possession sound incredible :D I would certainly recommend any of the initial 4 released if you have the money or find one at a bargain price.

just got an eventide h9 wich is basically all eventide's "best of" off their time factor, mod factor, pitch factor and space pedals, plus some new stuff too. It's just as good for synths as it is for guitar, I also really like the adrenalinn3 pedal for synths too. I have every moogerfooger besides the delay (wich maybe the best one with the new super delay with midi they just came out with) i also love the 103 phaser pedal but probably my favorite for synths is the 105 midi murf! that thing kicks a*s!

I've recently been getting into the MF-104Z again after I sidelined it for a while in favour of other textures and it kind of blew me away how good it sounds after having not used it for a bit. It's such a nice pedal.

As boring as this sounds, any good reamp box. I use the Saturnworks Reamp box currently. Even though some of the effects I use allow line-level and instrument-levels pretty easily (the eventide stuff for example allows you to switch between the two), some sound like utter shite when plugged into a line-level device. Hence, my favorite pedal is a reamp box. Without it, (or alternatively the Harvestman Evin, since it does level matching also) I would be in effect purgatory.

Electro Harmonix Polyphase and Electric Mistress Deluxe (original versions).

Do the Mutron Biphase and Compact Phasing count as pedals?

Actually, i'm using a Strymon Big Sky and i'm amazed 'bout the sonic qualities. Really impressive, works perfect together with the Eventide H9 for delay's and other effects, while the Big Sky is assuming the spacy reverb and chorale effects !

I gotta say my most favorite pedal is the Boss DS1, add a bit of crispy or crunchy to my K3 synth, sounds crazy with dual mono in, especially for deep bass.

I like nearly all the boss pedals for the fact you can tweak them out and there's lots of space for new switches and knobs too.

Strymon Timeline, Caroline Kilobyte, EHX Small Stone, LBC Pi Muff... I'm sorry, but I can't choose just one!

This is a cool company, the Tidal Waveform pedals look pretty nice, too. That tremolo looks fabulous. Thanks.

This whole thread is great.

It's hard to weigh in with one choice, but if I had to pick just one it would be one of the Moogerfoogers ( I know, boring, but they just kill it) which moogerfooger? Slow down, buddy, that is a little too hard to decide right away. The three I know to a reasonable degree are the Phaser, the delay and the filter... But dang doesn't that Cluster flux look cool?

My friend used to run the Moogerfooger delay and phasers thru his Fender pro Reverb amp, with the built in tremolo on the amp, it was about as perfect a combo of FX as I have ever heard. If you are into super spaced out, psych styles, of course. But the Murf has so much sound sculpting possibilities in one form, it is close to endless fun. I have been about to pull the trigger buying one for awhile now but I need to figure out which midi keyboard to buy first ( wish I was rich).

Honorable mention is my EHX Memory Man Deluxe... Not because it is the best delay ever made, because it isn't, but it is kind of a force unto itself, and it's the one pedal I have always had; even when times have been tough and I have sold off other prized gear, it's stuck around, stubborn little bastard.

*** I have a new pedal that I love so very much, it's an EHX c**k Fight... Fabulous.

my fav. was my brothers delay pedal a tc electronics flashback delay, when i first played with it on guitar it has a few usable delays (theres like 10 on it) but didnt care about looper option until i plugged a keyboard into it a year later, which allowed me to play with a beat/tone so im sure any good delay/looper is lots of fun for any keyboard

some one mentioned earlier the boss ce-1. Can't afford those beasts but I DO LOVE the ce-2 boss chorus! badman chorus sound! so warm sounding I recommend it to anyone!! sounds great on synths. make sure the volume on the synth is low though because of the guitar impedance thing.

As for my favorite pedals, first of all I would like to mention this one:

EarthQuaker Transmisser Resonating Reverb.

It is most impresive and cool reverb I've ever heard. You can tune a VERY LONG decay, so, this pedal is great for lovers of dark ambient, post-rock and shoegaze. Now it is main nugget on my boss pedal board.
