Chase Bliss Audio THERMAE vs. Eventide ROSE

This is a comparison of the Chase Bliss Audio THERMAE with Eventide ROSE.

Eventide ROSE – My favorite 7 settings

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.
