Chase Bliss Audio THERMAE vs. Eventide ROSE

This is a comparison of the Chase Bliss Audio THERMAE with Eventide ROSE.
To get close to the brightest setting of the THERMAE, I reduced the filter of the ROSE.
You will also get a demo of a darker setting, slow modulation and how both of delay pedals may sound in the mix. For pitch shifting effects, I added an expression pedal to the ROSE delay.

These are my favorite 7 settings of the Eventide ROSE delay.
Find out how a maxed filter pot will create bright repeats (0:08) while a reduced filter will bring out almost analog-like sounds (0:43). An envelope controlled modulation will produce a tape-like feeling (1:27).
And of course, I also used an expression pedal (3:00) for reverse delays with pitch shifting.

Here is my question: Is it true, that modulation effects can not really deal with analog dry through and phasing problems may occur? Continue reading “Ask the Dude: Modulation effects – analog dry through yes or no?”

Reverse delays

Tips & tricksAlmost 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”

Digital delays

In the 1980s, the first digital chips were used to produce delay pedals. The advantage was, that these racks and pedals were able to offer a longer delay time than the analog delays of those days and, at the same time, produced less hiss. Continue reading “Digital delays”
