Check out how to use guitar modulation effect pedals like chorus, phaser, flanger, tremolo, wah and pitch shifter to create more vivid sounds with an anlog synthesizer like the Behringer Model D.
During the breaks in playing, a slight hiss can be heard. This is because I used the compressor of the Roland SP-404MKII, switched off the noise gate to avoid choppy guitar tones and missed to turn up the master volume a bit. With the correct settings, you can reduce the hissing in the periods you are not playing/ recording, which of course can no longer be heard in the finished song. Since I first have to get used to this super extensive device, I’ve already made this mistake for you so that you don’t have to make it yourself 😉
You can find it on the bottom of numerous effect pedals, supposed to keep them on the pedalboard: Velcro.
But at the latest, when you want to sell your pedal, it makes sense to get rid of the adhesive straps. Continue reading “How to remove Velcro”
This is a video about how to use the Elektron Digitakt to midi sync start and stop loops of the Korg Kaoss Pad3 (KP3).
Gear:Elektron Digitakt, Korg Kaosspad3, Digitech SDRUM, DelayDude Midi Sync Cable
I show step by step how to record several loops on the Kaoss Pad3. The Digitakt starts the first loop of the KP3 via midi note #36, the second via midi note #37 and the third loop via midi note #38. Continue reading “Korg Kaosspad3 loops and the Elektron Digitakt midi sync”
This is a video about a real time random sampling with the TC Electronic DITTO X4 and the Elektron Digitakt. The random reverse and pitch effects are triggered via midi by the Digitakt. Everything has been recorded via the Electron Digitakt into Ableton Live.

This is a video about how to use the TC Electronic DITTO X4 as a delay effect by connecting it to the Elektron Digitakt. Check out how to create different delay times like quarters, eighths and half notes. I also present a tape reverse as well as a tape stop effect. If you are interested in a step-by-step instruction, please let me know.

This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Catalinbread Echorec.
Both delay pedals emulate the sound of the legendary Binson Echorec- a magnetic drum delay. Concerning the categorization of delay pedals, guitarists mostly refer to analog delays, tape delays and digital delay pedals. But this true classic is often overlooked because it is pretty rare and only available in used condition.

This is a comparison of the brilliant Strymon delays.
Find out more about the sound of a new tape emulation, a dark, old and wobbling tape, a multi head disc style stetting and how the Volante and the El Capistan might sound in the mix.
This is a video about how to use the DelayDude Midi Sync Cables for a midi sync rig with the DigiTech SDRUM, the Strymon Volante, Korg Volca Keys and the Korg Volca FM. The bpm of the Strymon Volante have been synced with the SDRUM via midi. The Korg Volcas start and stop in sync and the speed is also synchronized with the SDRUM.

This is a video about how to simulate the lead sounds of the Moog Sirin by using the Moog Mintaur in combination with the EHX POG2.
The Moog Mintaur is a brilliant synth, which is famous for its perfect bass sounds. But, because of its construction, the range of the Minitaur is limited.
The Moog Sirin is an updated version of the Minitaur and offers a wider range that reaches lead sounds.
But do you have to go and get a Sirin right away? Check out this video and find out…
