Awe, désolé compatriote, I was actually talking about a V1.2. I sympathize with your tinkering: the only OCD still in my possession is a home made clone passed through various avatars (V1.1 to V1.4, with diodes instead of the transistors for a while, and so on). For the moment, it's a slightly tweaked V1.4. Regarding the buffer: to be honest, I've found non buffered versions rather moody with some other pedals like a TC Flashback and had to add a buffer in between (before to get rid of the Flashback, finally)... So, I can understand why Fulltone has released the (actual) V2.
