Neunaber Expanse vs. Source Audio Nemesis

This is a comparison of the Neunaber Expanse with the Source Audio Nemesis.
The Neuaber Expanse is quite more than a reverb. Thus, I compare different settings of both pedals like tape and digital. But also modes like scatter (Expanse) versus rhythmic (Nemesis) and echelon stock (Expanse) versus digital mode (Nemesis). Last but not least, you will get a demo of how both pedals sound in the mix.

Korg SDD-3000 Pedal

Korg SDD 3000 PedalA long time ago, there was the Korg SDD-3000 rack delay with its legendary sound.
Some years ago, the also less pedalboard-friendly version of this classic has been put on the market. Continue reading “Korg SDD-3000 Pedal”

Source Audio Nemesis vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay

This is a comparison of the Source Audio Nemesis with the Erica Synths Zen Delay.
For these two are digital stereo delays, please use your headphones.

Both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.

Erica Synths Zen Delay vs. DOD Rubberneck

This is a comparison of the DOD Rubberneck with the Erica Synths Zen Delay
For both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.
The Zen Delay does not provide an analog mode. Via the filter settings, I formed an analog-like sound in the digital delay mode. And the Rubberneck is, what it is: a great dark and gritty analog delay.

Fulltone Tube Tape Echo vs. Erica Synths Zen Delay

This is a comparison of the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo with the Erica Synths Zen Delay
For both delays do not have true bypass, I used a true bypass looper (Lehle Parallel) for the audio recording.
I would like to present some sonic options by using different modes and filters of the Erica Synths Zen Delay and varying speeds and a higher record level for tape saturation of the Fulltone Tube Tape Echo.

AnalogMan ARDX20 vs. Maxon AD-900 – Analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the AnalogMan ARDX20 with the Maxon AD-900.
These both analog delays create a rather dark sound. They are about the same size, but for the AnalogMan ARDX20 comes along with the Amazeo, it will need a bit more space on the pedalboard. Therefore, you will additionally get tap tempo and modulation.
Sonically both delay pedals are based on the Ibanez AD-9.
For the Maxon AD-9 does not provide modulation, I forego showing this feature of the AnalogMan ARDX20. Find out more about the sound of different delay times and how both pedals may sound in the mix.

AnalogMan ARDX20 vs. DOD Rubberneck – Analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the AnalogMan ARDX20 with the DOD Rubberneck.
These both analog delays create a rather dark sound. Each of them provides modulation and – if you also use the Amazeo for the ARDX20- also tap tempo.
Find out more about the sound of different delay times and how both pedals may sound in the mix.

Tape Emulation, analog and digital delay – how do they sound with an overdrive pedal (Paul Cochrane Timmy)?

This is a comparison of three different types of delays all accompanied by the Timmy.
For this demo I used a classic analog delay (Electro Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man), a tape echo emulation (Strymon Volante) and a digital delay (Empress Echosystem).
The Paul Cochrane Timmy is probably the best choice, if you are looking for a transparent overdrive. so, go ahead and find out, how it affects every single type of delay depending on the respective kind of playing (like dynamic playing, modulation, in the mix).
If you are looking for a sonic sneak peak, check out 1:22.

MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe vs. AnalogMan ARDX20 – Analog delay comparison

This is a comparison of the MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe with the AnalogMan ARDX20.
These both analog delays create a rather dark sound. By using the Amazeo, the ARDX20 provides tap tempo like the MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe. Find out more about the sound of different delay times, the modulation sound and how both pedals may sound in the mix.

Analog, digital and tape delay – how do they sound with an overdrive pedal (AnalogMan King of Tone)?

This is a comparison of three different types of delays all accompanied by the AnalogMan King of Tone.
For this demo I used a dark analog delay (DOD Rubberneck), a digital delay (Strymon DIG) and a tape delay(Fulltone Tube Tape Echo).
The first 25 seconds you can hear a sneak peak of each type of delay accompanied by the King of Tone.
Learn more about the how the King of Tone affects every single type of delay depending on the respective kind of playing (palm mutes, modulation, in the mix).

Empress Echosystem Freezification vs. Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal

This is a comparison of the Freezification-mode of the Empress Echosystem with the Gamechanger Audio PLUS Pedal.
In this comparison, I used different times for attack and release and altered the adjustment of the tone pot in the different sound files to create varying tonal colorings.
Especially in the second file you will hear the sonic difference between the PLUS Pedals and the Echosystem. While the PLUS Pedal puts the layers on top of each other and fades out more fluently, the current signal of the Echosystem fades out completely before the next sound wave arises. Depending on the style of playing, this difference regarding the blend effect can be used quite purposefully.
