I got a Meteore used last year as a Father's Day gift for myself. Love it. Maybe a Parabola should be next?
It's a pretty fun trem.

So, I asked Phillipe what his favorite Parabola setting is (Q&A over on Instagram), and he answered thus:
gain and volume around 10:00, fast mode, slow rate, depth around 1:00, I palm mute in tempo with the LFO and let my notes rise up

I sold a synth module this morning, and picked up a Parabola. I've been interested in it for a while, but especially after you posted Maggie. After hearing a few demos, notably this one from The Pedal Zone's Stefan, I had to have one. Tremolo is my favorite effect. I technically bought it for my bass board, but if I prefer it to my EQD Hummingbird (would be a very tough battle), then then the Parabola would go on the guitar board, and the Hummingbird would go to the bass board.

I'm actually writing songs based around it now. Holy cow, it's really something.

The Météore is a great, but very particular, type of reverb pedal. I've ended up using as part of songs now, so it has to be on my board. I use the havoc function quite a lot, so my only complaint about that is that the trails cut off really quickly when you disengage it.

I wonder if there's an adjustment to that decay time, say on a trimpot inside?

That Parabola looks pretty cool. Can you engage the Havoc mode starting with the pedal bypassed, or does it need to be on first?

Wondering that myself. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever tried the Havoc on my Kilobyte with the pedal off...

I don't know about the Parabola, but the Meteore and Kilobyte need to be on to engage the havoc switch.

Seems like it would be a great v.2 feature for these pedals. One of my favorite features of the Walrus Monument is the ability to tap in a brief pulse.
