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!
Recently, I found the following request in my mailbox:
“I think, I actually would need a Binson Echorec, but they are in fact beyond price. I love the flutter echo mash, that the Echorec is able to create. In the meantime, I think, that an analog delay is able to produce every sound, I long for. Digital delays with analog emulation do not sound that nice to me. But at the same time, I don’t want to get into dept. Could you tell me, if the Ibanez Echo Shifter might be a suitable pedal for me? Especially in contrast to the Ibanez analog delay, AD9, mini or even the EHX Memory Toy? I have already tried to many sappy pedals. Right now, I do (still!) use the Hardwire DL8. But in my opinion, it is too cold and inorganic.”Continue reading “Ask the Dude: Is there a pedal sounding like the Binson Echorec?”
Almost since musicians used tape recording, there are also reverse delays. Very early artists like the Rolling Stones or Jimi Hendrix experimented with this type of delay sounds. At those days, creating reverse delays was pretty complicated because the recording tapes had to be cut and played backwards. Continue reading “Reverse delays”
This is a comparison of the Gamechanger Audio Plus Pedal with the Electro Harmonix Superego. In the first part you will hear the wet signal only. The last part offers sounds ot the respective special modes of both pedals (layers mode of the Plus Pedal/ Gliss effect of the Superego).
In this video I would like to present the Delay Dude Clutch. The first Delay Dude pedal is a momentary bypass looper which enables the user to add delay pedals (in this case the Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man) constantly or temporarily to the effect chain while allowing the trails to fade out after switching off the looper.
As of now, under the heading “7 questions to …” I would like to introduce you to people who were and are of particular importance for the world of guitarists and whose work – in my opinion – seem to be interesting or impressing.
For the first interview I choose the father of the legendary Deluxe Memory Man: Howard Davis. In my honest opinion, he is an icon of the world of effect pedals and I am quite proud that he took the time to answer to my questions. Continue reading “7 questions to Howard Davis”
