Analog delay sound

Analog delay pedals are not all equal. By now, there are so many different pedals that you cannot speak of THE analog delay sound anymore. Continue reading “Analog delay sound”

Dark Delays

Supa pussThe dark sound is a very famous aspect of analog delays. Because of their design, analog delays cut the treble to minimize besides noise. As a result, they sound very warm and rich and, on top, they go well together with overdrive effects. Continue reading “Dark Delays”

Are there analog delays without white noise?

Ask the DudeBesides spectacular delays every analog delay produces white noise.
Generally, one can say that the proportion of white noise increases in dependency of the delay time.
To some this unintended noise represent an important part of an analog character, others prefer digital delays to produce a signal that is more clear. Continue reading “Are there analog delays without white noise?”

Tremolo effects

Effect PedalTo modulate sound signals by rhythmical amplitude fluctuations was a technique that has already been used in the 1950s and became famous again through grunge music.
Besides the first DeArmond tremolo effect, about which I already wrote in this article, there are many other possibilities to produce a tremolo effect. Continue reading “Tremolo effects”

How to control the parameters of a pedal

Expression-pedals, Midi, CV and Apps

Ask the DudeExpression-pedals

The first pedal that could be controlled with an expression-pedal in real time was the Uni-Vibe. The advantage was that you could adjust the swiftness without taking the hands off the strings. Later this function could also be found in Auto-Wahs. In this way the pedal could be controlled just like a real Wah. Continue reading “How to control the parameters of a pedal”
