Paia Gator can be built as manual or auto swell. I chose the auto swell to compare the slow gear clone tried.
my build seems to dull the tone a little and I'm not crazy about the gate feature.
that being said , it's not as finicky as the slow gear build I made from Sabrotone's layout.
I just haven't found a use for swell effects as of yet.
I would really love to see a pedal with a full set of ADSR envelopes like on a synth. closest I've seen is the Malekko sneak attack or the Pigtronix attack decay pedals.
