Moog Moogerfooger vs. Chase Bliss Audio Thermae

This is a comparison of the Moog Moogerfooger with the Chase Bliss Audio Thermae.
Both are analog delay pedals with a very nice modulation.
For the Chase Bliss Audio Thermae offers the pitch modulation as a special feature, I tried to emulate this kind of pitch modulation with the Moogerfooger by using the internal modulation. The last three soundfiles of this Video are dedicated to this sonic experiment. In the last part, I created the Moog “pitch modulation” by changing the position of the Short/Long switch manually. Of course, this can also be done automatically via midi.

Empress Echosystem vs. Wampler Faux Tape Echo

This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Wampler Faux Tape Echo.
These two digital delays emulate the sounds of a tape echo. Both provide a very nice modulation and the sound can be fine-tuned quite well via the tone control.

Boss DD-200 vs. Source Audio Nemesis

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-200 with the Source Audio Nemesis. Both digital delays provide likewise functions and have the same form factor.
Check out their sonic differences and similarities in varying settings.

Catalinbread Belle Epoch vs. Empress Echosystem

This is a comparison of the Catalinbread Belle Epoch with the Empress Echosystem.
The Belle Epoch emulates the legendary Echoplex EP-3 as well as the respective algorithm of the Echosystem. Both delays provide modulation, a tone control and for those, who like grittier sounds, they also add some dirt to the signal.

Boss DD-8 vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-8 with the DOD Rubberneck.
On request, I made this video. In comparison to the DD-7, the analog mode of the DD-8 has been changed. So, I wanted to compare this sound to another analog delay (DOD Rubberneck).
Furthermore, you will get slapback sounds, run-away feedback and oscillation.

Boss DD-7 vs. DD-8

This is a comparison of the Boss DD-7 with the Boss DD-8.
They look like twins, but what about the sound?
Find out more about the sonic similarities and differences in varying modes, different delay times and regarding modulation and reverse.

Akai Headrush

This is a demo about the Akai Headrush.
Probably the only pedal that provides one separate output for each virtual tape head.
Although it almost seems like a silver-ager, it has extraordinary functions like the tape head spacing to create rhythmical delays.

Line6 DL4

This is a demo about the Line6 DL4.
Most people love the DL4 because of its crazy looper. But don’t forget: it is also a delay…
So, check out some sounds of one of the first multi delays.

Hughes & Kettner Replex

This is a demo about the Hughes & Kettner Replex.
It is huge and heavy, but it glows in the dark and has a tube!
The production has been stopped, but still it is a great tape emulation.
Tube preamp, reverb pedal and a single and dual-head delay in one enclosure.
Nevermind the space it needs on your pedalboard…
