Hardware vs. Software:This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Soundtoys Echoboy VST Plugin. Check out if there are sonic differences between a pedal and a VST plugin. This is the first part (tape emulation) of a series of comparisons of a pedal with a VST plugin. Stay tuned for further parts about digital delays and analog delays.
This is a comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Akai Headrush. By activating different tone heads, I created varying rhythms. A sonic coulouring of each of these rhythms is added by different settings.
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.
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 comparison of the Strymon Volante with the Source Audio Nemesis. Find out more about delay types like tape, noise tape/tape half speed, rhythmic/drum and how both of these great delays sound in the mix.
This is a video about the marvellous Strymon Volante. For the Volante is an incredible extensive delay, I won’t even try to present all of its brilliant functions. I only present my 7 favorite settings instead.
Since the El Capistan, Strymon is famous for their tape sounds and the Volante offers wow and flutter, tape speeds and tape saturation of the highest quality. The studio mode provides quasi the hi-fi version of a tape sound. Continue reading “Review: Strymon Volante part 1”
The Italian as well as the Spanish word “Volante“ means wheel or travelling/flying. I think, it refers to the magnetic disc of a Binson Echorec, for the Strymon Volante emulates its sounds (as well as further tape echo sounds) in a very special way. Continue reading “Review: Strymon Volante part 1”
