The SOMA Cosmos is a very special looper that reawakens creativity and the urge to play. He encourages sound experiments towards spherical sounds and inspiring variations and always conjures up new possibilities. Continue reading “Soma Cosmos Demo Video”
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.

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?”
This is the second part of the review about the Strymon NightSky.
While the first part was about the construction and the extensive functions of the NightSky, this second part is dedicated to the sound of this brilliant effect pedal. Continue reading “Review: Strymon NightSky – Part 2”
Strymon calls the NightSky a time-warped reverberator which includes more functions than a usual reberb pedal. The new type of setting options is also innovative and is an invitation for experimentation.
This is the first part of a two-part review of the Strymon NightSky.
In the first part you will learn all about the construction and the extensive functions of the NightSky, while the second part will be dedicated to the sound of this extraordinary pedal. Continue reading “Review: Strymon NightSky – Part 1”
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.
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”
This 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”
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.

The Empress Superdelay, as well as the Superdelay VM (Vintage Modified) are both rather moderate pedalboard-friendly, but both versions of this delay offer almost every delay sound, a guitarist needs. Continue reading “Empress Superdelay / Superdelay VM”
This is a comparison of the Moog Moogerfooger MF-104 with Eventide ROSE.
To get close to the brightest setting of the Moogerfooger MF-104 I reduced the filter of the ROSE.
You will also get a demo of a darker setting, slow and faster modulation and how both delay pedals may sound in the mix. For pitch shifting effects, I added an expression pedal to the ROSE delay. Regarding the Moogerfooger, I used a square waveform modulation to create the pitch shifting effects.

These are my favorite 7 settings of the Eventide ROSE delay.
Find out how a maxed filter pot will create bright repeats (0:08) while a reduced filter will bring out almost analog-like sounds (0:43). An envelope controlled modulation will produce a tape-like feeling (1:27).
And of course, I also used an expression pedal (3:00) for reverse delays with pitch shifting.

This is a comparison of the Empress Echosystem with the Eventide Rose. For the Rose is a mono pedal, I chose the single mode for the Echosystem.
Find out more about different settings of these delay pedals and how both of them can sound in the mix.

Cooper FX are famous for their extraordinary effect pedals.
The Outward v2 is a new version of the celebrated Outward, which is a freeze, stutter and time stretching pedal, able to sample the audio signal digitally and to replay it in different modes. Continue reading “News +++ Cooper FX Outward v2 +++ News”
Just in time for the Summer NAMM 2019 Eventide launches the 51th algorithm. Namely, it is the Harmadillo, a harmonic tremolo algorithm that so many guitarists have already eagerly expected. Continue reading “Eventide Hamardillo – Harmonic Tremolo Algorithm”
This is a demo of how to use the Eventide Rose Delay with a synthesizer.
Special thanks to Collin Bevan from Eventide who answered to my questions at the SUPERBOOTH 2019.
