This is a comparison of three different types of delays all accompanied by the Timmy. For this demo I used a classic analog delay (Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man), a tape echo emulation (Strymon Volante) and a digital delay (Empress Echosystem). The Paul Cochrane Timmy is probably the best choice, if you are looking for a transparent overdrive. so, go ahead and find out, how it affects every single type of delay depending on the respective kind of playing (like dynamic playing, modulation, in the mix). If you are looking for a sonic sneak peak, check out 1:22.
The majority of effect pedals are made for guitarists and therefore, many bass players fear the contact with the small (and sometimes big) devices that can add a special character to the sound. In the first part of this two-part series, I already presented some effect categories, every bass player can use without taking any risks. In this second part, we will have a closer look on effects, that require a bit more sensitivity. So, boys and girls behind the fat strings: go for it!

This is a comparison of an Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man with a Panasonic MN3008 chip with another big box version with a Panasonic MN3005. Find out the differences between these two legends (if there are any?). Maybe you will find sonic differences while I present different settings with vibrato, chorus, varying delay times and modulation speeds and the sound of both in the mix. Furthermore, the fans of oscillation will find their very special comparison at the end of this video.
Several times, people asked me, how to assemble the perfect ambient pedalboard. For this reason, I would like to sketch my very personal design of my pedalboard for ambient and soundscaping sounds in this article. Continue reading “Ambient pedalboard setup”
Like its great idol, the Deluxe Memory Man, the size of the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy is also rather less pedalboard friendly.But, the analog delay with a maximum delay time of 700 ms offers numerous features in on XO- enclosure. Continue reading “Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy”
This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy. The Echosystem provides a Deluxe Memory Boy algorithm, which I chose for the first three soundfiles in this video. Find out if the analog bucket brigade device algorithm with slightly increased saturation gets also close to the sound of the Deluxe Memory Boy. For the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy is a mono pedal, I chose the single mode for the Echosystem.
This is the third and last part of the video of creating anbient sounds with the Chase Bliss Audio Thermae. In this video I used a POG2 to create a bass-like guitar sound, which than has been pitched one octave up by the Thermae. Thereby you can create nice lofi sounds.
Everything in sync with the DelayDude Midi Sync Cable.
Compared to the Winter NAMM most musicians perceive the Summer NAMM somehow inconspicuous. Nevertheless, some interesting innovations have been presented this summer. Here, I would like to present a list of my highlights regarding the world of guitars and amps. Continue reading “+++ Guitars & amps Summer NAMM 2019 News +++”
This is a video about the Chase Bliss Audio Thermae. For this pedal is too complex to do a simple demo video, I decided to present the Thermae (as a darker vintage style analog delay with modulation) inSync in the context of a whole song. The Thermae is accompanied by the Montreal Assembly Count to Five, the Cooper FX Generation Loss, the Origin Effects Cali 76 as well as by the Source Audio Ventris. All bass parts are created via the Electro Harmonix POG2. Looped with the DigiTech JamMan SoloXT. By using the DelayDude Midi Sync Cable, the JamMan SoloXT as well as the delay speed are send via the DigiTech SDRUM (master clock).
So, relax and enjoy the sound!
In part 2 you will learn more about the pitch shifting function of the Thermae. Therefore, stay tuned and inSync!
