I have one. I probably haven't put it to real use but it's fun to mess around with. It gets old fast though, or at least it did for me

They have an mp3 in and you can use it as a filter for music. Also headphone out

I've got one, and it's great. Also, you can run a guitar through one for filtery fun. Although I have never done this because I keep forgetting to get the right cable.

These are awesome! Hook it up to a loop pedal and you're away!

The fact you can effect your guitar with it makes it doubly cool:

Might actually get one of these, the ability to mount it to your guitar to allow for a quick synth flourish amidst rockin' is pretty appealing.

I want to get one of these, patch it between the mouthpiece and speaker of a megaphone, mount the whole thing to a snowmobile helmet and go "busking" with it.

Got mine a few days ago and it's a lot of fun, I put my guitar and my stylophone through the filter and it's champion... planning on doing a tune using only the monotron / stylophone to see how much mileage I can get out of them...

How hard would it be to convert the filter into a guitar pedal?

Tangentially related, Frostwave have already done this. It's discontinued, probably expensive, etc.

Would you want a rocker pedal to control the sweep or anything? If not, perhaps just rehousing the thing and wiring up some 1/4" jacks would be best.
