RE: Ambient effects -- something wild and crazy, please!

I have found these to be fairly wild effects:

- Boss RPS-10 - Reverses and/or pitch shifts an audio signal.

- Digitech IPS-33B - Generates arpeggios from a single note or provides 
strange harmonies.  (You must program your own weirdness, the factory 
programs are pretty tame.)

- Ring Modulator - especially weird if you vary the carrier frequency 
(available in the Alesis Quadraverb Plus).

- Tremelo - using a square wave and 100% mix causes the signal to abruptly 
turn off and on.

- ADA Flanger - its controls are very wide ranging and at extreme 
settings, the effect obliterates the input signal.

- Eventide Ultraharmonizer - if you have a zillion dollars . . .

Also, Digitech/DOD has just introduced a new pedal called the Mouth or the 
Voice.  It offers vocoder and talk box effects.  See the ad in the most 
recent issue of Guitar World.  It includes a 1-800 number for an audio 

Also, you might want to check out Andy Butler's Vortex website.  It 
includes Vortex patches and morphs.

I too am looking for a few good effect processors for my ambient

I don't need the standards: chorus, flange, delay, pitch-shift.  I'm
looking for DRASTIC effects rendering a guitar very UN-guitar-like.  I
have a Vortex already -- now I quest for something more wild.  

Loop-folk, you're my best source honest assessments.

Your help greatly appreciated!
