Waiting for videos of these. The rapid price drops after buying some other ones new has me scared to buy new if I might not love it.

My OS module is out for delivery as I type this! I'll report back later with my impressions once I've had some time to put it through its paces.

Next up on my list is the Savage!!!

Please do post reviews and thoughts as I have been waiting on these, the savage in particular. Can’t believe they are actually available now.

I really wish I could afford the BB/BE too, it sounds like he perfect module.

Someone buy my MetroPlex ;-)

Got all three newly released modules today. After playing with them for 2 hours, I can tell you that these modules sound fantastic. The BB/BE is my favorite so far. Wonderful clean tones and superb crunch sounds. The OS I found a bit tricky to dial in the beggining, but the tones I’m getting now are addictive. Keep in mind that this is just after spending a couple of hours. The Savage also sounds great. I inmediately noticed a very round and full low end that I haven’t experience with other modules. Need to spend more time with it and try some of the guitars I have that have more aggresive pickups. But all in all, I’m very happy with the purchase.

I plan to spend a good amount of time on Saturday playing with these and configuring some pre-sets with my Fractal FX-8.

Are you able to compare the BE side of the BB/BE to the BE module?

If it's dead on, this is the perfect idea for a module IMO.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the BE module.

I agree. I found it to be way more tweaky and touchy than any of the other modules I own. Not that that's necessarily a negative, just the nature of this module. It also seems to require fairly heavy handed tweaks between single coils and humbuckers.

Any of you lucky ones have thoughts on the savage?

Or I guess particularly JKD :)? From your module list in your signature, you have a few other hi-gain ones to compare the savage to and I’m curious how it holds up in that crowd. Plus from the other OS post, seems you may be hitting it with EMG’s which is what I would be doing.

How’s the gain in the BB/BE? It always sounded like the BE pedal had a lot more gain than the BE module.

Thanks!
