In dieser dreiteiligen Serie möchte ich aus allen drei Bereichen einige Vertreter vorstellen, die es derzeit für sehr schmales Geld auf dem Markt gibt. Continue reading “Budget Delays Teil II”

Source Audio Nemesis vs. Line6 DL4

This is a comparison of the Source Audio Nemesis with the Line6 DL4.
The Line6 DL4 has been launched decades ago, but still doesn’t have to be shy about a comparison with the Source Audio Nemesis.

In this demo I compare different modes of these two workhorses.

0:09 DL4: tube tape / Nemesis: noise tape with slight modulation Continue reading “Source Audio Nemesis vs. Line6 DL4”

Empress Echosystem vs. Hughes & Kettner Replex

This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Hughes & Kettner Replex.
In this demo I compare different settings of drive and vintage factor of the Hughes & Kettner Replex with varying tape modes of the Empress Echosystem.

 

0:12 Replex:single head, vintage factor fccw/ Echosystem: new tape Continue reading “Empress Echosystem vs. Hughes & Kettner Replex”

Strymon Volante vs. Akai Headrush

This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Akai Headrush.
By activating different tone heads, I created varying rhythms.
A sonic coulouring of each of these rhythms is added by different settings.

Neunaber Expanse vs. Source Audio Nemesis

This is a comparison of the Neunaber Expanse with the Source Audio Nemesis.
The Neuaber Expanse is quite more than a reverb. Thus, I compare different settings of both pedals like tape and digital. But also modes like scatter (Expanse) versus rhythmic (Nemesis) and echelon stock (Expanse) versus digital mode (Nemesis). Last but not least, you will get a demo of how both pedals sound in the mix.

0:10 tape Continue reading “Neunaber Expanse vs. Source Audio Nemesis”

Neunaber Expanse as a delay

In this video, I used the Neunaber Expanse as a delay.
Most people use it as a reverb effect, but through the Neunaber App you can also download several delay algorithms. The additional EXP Controller allows to choose between up to four different presets.
For it is stereo, please use your headphones!

Inicially, the tape echo emulation has been produced by Hermida. Some time ago, Lovepedal aquired Hermida. Continue reading “Lovepedal Hermida EPH-3”

Source Audio Nemesis vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay

This is a comparison of the Source Audio Nemesis with the Erica Synths Zen Delay.
For these two are digital stereo delays, please use your headphones.

Both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.

0:08 digital mode (Zen Delay)
digital mode (Nemesis) Continue reading “Source Audio Nemesis vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay”

Erica Synths Zen Delay vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the DOD Rubberneck with the Erica Synths Zen Delay
For both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.
The Zen Delay does not provide an analog mode. Via the filter settings, I formed an analog-like sound in the digital delay mode. And the Rubberneck is, what it is: a great dark and gritty analog delay.
