If you happens to own or have considered to own our hexaphonic distortion pedal 6APPEAL, please let us know your ideas about the device:
- what do you like most?
- what do you dislike?
- what do you think the device lacks most?
Spicetone is considering a new hexaphonic processing module, which hopefully will enlarge also 6APPEAL functionality. We appreciate your input about possible implementation ideas.

Let me start the discussion myself. Lately vguitarforums.com member Brak(E)man left three wishes for 6APPEAL:
– The possibility to adjust string input balance.
This actually is in our ToDo list – many customers have requested that. To be honest, a quite simple thing to implement.
– The GK out should be switchable to through.
We can’t do GK out switchable by hardware limitations. But, we plan to do a through hex output to our next device, which most logically is going to sit before 6Apppeal in the effects chain
– MIDI in out via the USB interface for use with Daws etc
Also in our ToDo list. Just, we do not have a clear understanding how much effort the implementation takes with our micro controller
I own the APPEAL and have used it for over a year now.
Likes: Variety of sounds. Filter effects. MIDI control.
Dislike: Interface – clever but not easy to learn or remember. 13-Pin Out is not useful.
Lacks most: Easy to understand front panel.
Peter, let me ask a question about the interface. Do you think just the pedal interface or is the computer Editor interface also problematic?
I agree about the front panel but also know that there’s a LOT going on underneath and with that in mind it was a good layout. I’m sure you’re working on a user-friendly layout. I lso agree that a USB connector for independent output to a DAW and midi through are now essential components. Excited to see what an update will sound like
