Ambient Pedalboard #2 – THERMAE inSync with the SDRUM feat. Generation Loss

This is a video about the pitch shifting function of the Chase Bliss Audio Thermae. For this pedal is too complex to do a simple demo video, I decided to present the Thermae 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).

gear: Fender Stratocaster, Fender Deluxe Reverb, Cubase.
