The Pigtronix Constellator is a real analog delay in a very compact enclosure. Its circuit is based on two MN3005 chips that run on 15 volts. Easily, the legendary Deluxe Memory Man comes to my mind by reading this. But we will start one by one. Continue reading “Review: Pigtronix – Constellator”
The Ditto only adopts the tempo of the SDRUM when he hasn’t saved a loop yet. After you have recorded a loop you can’t change the tempo of the Ditto anymore. But the SDRUM sends signals via midi to start/stop the Ditto in sync. If you delete the loops on the Ditto you will be able to feed in a new tempo with the SDRUM. Hereafter you can record a different part in another tempo.
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.
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.
The TC Electronic Flashback Mini is most pedalboard-friendly mono-version of the Flashback. In a very compact enclosure, this digital delay comes around with up to 7 seconds of maximum delay time and only very few pots. Continue reading “TC Electronic Flashback Mini”
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.
I have got a question regarding the Wet Output + Volume Poti Mod and the Remote Switch Mod for the EHX Freeze. Is the volume mod supposed to control the volume of the wet signal or the dry signal or the mix? And will the function of the original switch of the Freeze remain after the installation of the output for the additional switch? In other words: Could the bass player in my band control the Freeze on my pedalboard from the other side of the stage while I am playing the WahWah?Continue reading “A question regarding the wet output + volume poti mod for the EHX Freeze”
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.
Last year (after several years of playing the guitar) I finally bought my first effect pedals: the Walrus Audio Slö, the Earthquaker Devices Westwood and the Ditto looper. I mostly listen to minimal, indie and ambient and therefore, I would love to create such sounds myself. But unfortunately, I have not made up my mind about a specific sound.Continue reading “Which pedal should I get?”
For a new song, I used a chord sequence recorded with a reverse delay. I think, in my own case this is an appropriate substitute for an extensive synth sound. But I recognized that it is pretty hard to control the reverse delay and now, I am not able to reproduce my record exactly. I have the feeling that it does whatever it wants to do. Somehow, the rhythm of the reverse signal varies each time. I am not sure, if this is problem only occurs in my setup but I tried my best to describe the trouble. At the moment I am using the reverse delay of the Boss ME-80, might this be the source of error?Continue reading “Reverse delay trouble”
