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.

Mr. Black Vintage Chorus or TC Electronic Corona Mini?

A reader’s question to the Dude:

I use a Mr. Black Vintage Chorus Mini and it sounds superb.
I just notice a little latency, which might be just in my mind. But I asked Mr.
Black himself and he said it’s ‘fully 24-bit DSP’. So, it has no analog dry through.
Now I wonder if for example the TC Electronic Corona Mini, which has analog dry through, would be even better.
But on the other hand, the TC Electronic Corona Mini is unable to reach the sonic quality of the Vintage Chorus.
I’m just curious about what you think about this issue. Continue reading “Mr. Black Vintage Chorus or TC Electronic Corona Mini?”

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.

Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 2

The first part of the  of the Strymon Brigadier-review was about the features of this digital delay pedal. This second part is dedicated to the sound of the Strymon Brigadier.

Sound

Th short mode, which is oriented to a one-chip delay, offers a beautiful slapback sound with at least up to 400ms. Maxed, the delay sound becomes somehow metallic – similar to an analog delay with an overclocked chip.
The peak of the repeats is very realistic at the upper mids and cut very well through the mix. Continue reading “Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 2”

Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 1

Strymon BrigadierThis is the first part of a detailed review about theStrymon Brigadier, a dbucket delay which emulates an analog delay is dedicated to the features of this digital delay pedal.
The Brigadier comes around in a compact, green aluminum enclosure that is similar to the ones we know from the El Capistan, the DIG or the Flint. While these three are absolutely legendary, the Brigadier seems to be overlooked in a certain way. With justification? Continue reading “Review: Strymon Brigadier Part 1”

Symmetric/ asymmetric, LED, MOSFET or silicon. Continue reading “Mod: internal Clipping switch”

Mod: External switch to adjust the delay time via expression pedal

Shadow echo dr. JWho does not dream about starting crazy sound escapades, driving the delay to the border of oscillation and then, suddenly, turn back while you keep both hands on your guitar?
The installation of an external switch enables you to choose via an expression-pedal if you want to control the delay time or the repeats by using an additional expression pedal. Continue reading “Mod: External switch to adjust the delay time via expression pedal”
