First of all: nice playin' man and thanks for the effort of recording.

The Jemini sounds kind of digital to me. Did you use it in front of a clean amp?
cheers
yup in front of a clean peavey envoy, its on its last legs...

Looking forward to hearing more before i decide which way to go.
Guys, please don't forget the fact that the Satchurator is meant to be a stand alone distortion box. Unlike the Jemini, the Satchurator was not designed to be a boost pedal.

The Jemini was clearly designed to replace both of Steve's boost pedals. It was not designed to recreate Steve's main distorted rhythm tone, which is all Legacy.

To me from what I have heard so far the Jemini only gives a slight boost. Also from what i have listened to it seems that there is little difference between the two footswitches. Also it seems a little artificial. Now on the other hand the Vox Satriani pedal seems to do a boost much better and the sound quality seems to be better as well. On top of that you can go from a boost to an all out scream with it and the two switches do sound alot different. Like I said in my previous post I hope Steve has his demo of the jemini posted pretty soon. I could see alot of people not buying from the samples we have heard so far. The Jemini has some pretty stiff Competition from the Satriani pedal especially since the Vox has a lower price.

Should be a few days away. It's very cool, and I think it will answer people's questions about how it works and how it sounds.
