So left and right channel? Stereo CT5?
Definitely. I’ll try serial too...with some other oddities like infinite jets and ottobit. :bananaguitar:

Still waiting for it to ship two weeks after ordering...

Might be the last time I order from them.

Mine shipped pretty fast, but was caught up nearly two weeks in german customs. I don´t think you have to worry about it.

The first one I bought was quick.

I got in touch with Scott, he said he would look into it as there aren't any updates. Looks like a shipment was entered into the computer, but hasn't actually been sent.

He said he would look into it and get back to me yesterday. Hasn't yet, and hasn't responded to email I sent asking for an update yesterday.

I'm not worried, but annoyed that it might have never actually been sent for the last two weeks. Maybe another case of personal life of a small pedal manufacturer getting in the way of customer service.

I definitely won't be buying another one, at least not from them.

Thinking about getting a refund as I'm starting to get a bitter taste in my mouth.

Seems the bitter taste is either from Canada Post or the USPS, a whole batch that he sent out has gone MIA after the Canada Post picked it up. I wouldn't doubt if the current political state of the US-Canada relations has something to do with it. So...hopefully one day I'll get it. The future is uncertain eh? :doh:

Wow, shitsandwich...

Someone somewhere is probably putting a lot of ct5s in series :bang:

Hope it will resolve for you and soon!

Today I spent three ( :deadbanana: ) hours at the customs building, to receive mine after they had it on hold for eleven( :sniper: ) days. Shipping from Canada to Germany was three days ( :doh: ).
But two hours from now, I´ll light one up and spent the night jammin´

I'll tell you...

I am a Purchasing Agent and I get worse status and treatment from well established corporations. With my purchasing power I can move around, but the fact remains everywhere.

These small manufacturers are typically better than the big ones.

Ymv. I support dkcg.

Ahahaha! So, you're to blame!

It was from this thread, when it started, that I first caught sight of this gizmo and totally flipped! And still flipping!

One of the weirdest pedals I ever bought.

I'll vouch for Scott that he is a stand up guy. He does have a "real job" but he does his best to respond to emails in a timely manner.

@dkcg any update on the shipping?

Scott made it all right, shipped out another one. I got that one last week, only took a few days. He was quick about answering emails considering he was out of town for about a week during the fiasco. :)

Hopefully Canada Post finds his shipment and he gets the ones that got lost back.

^ So how goes the ole left and right CT5? Does it give you vertigo?

I have mine currently patched into my Euro modular with a Malekko SND/RTN split through a Boss Tera Echo. Shimmery cascading madness.

I decided it wasn't too practical trying to use two as a stereo effect and instead put it in series with effects between them for now. I'll revisit the stereo plan when I got some more time.

Signal path of the "time shredder" rack:
Moog 104m->Ethos TWE-1 overdrive->MF102 phaser->CT5->Infinite Jets->Echo Dream Sequence->Gurus Echosex2->CT5->NeoVentlator (leslie sim)

The MF104m and Dream sequence are synced via a Disaster Areas clock pedal.

Still wiring up the pedal switcher. I'm hoping to put together something I can input a mono signal and get something to really mess with time (resampling, echoes, etc).

Haven't had a lot of time to play with them together, hopefully my idea won't sound too shitty and end up with some cool glitchy stuff.

Just scored a Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water. The first thing I envision is splitting the CT5 into a Lo Fi Junky left and the FCSW right. Double warble in 'stereo'.

I might add an EH Nano 360 Looper in one out channel t catch what the CT5 is looping. I have not looped a looper before.

CT5 + SW + RP Particle is currently my pedal setup.

Why don't you just send the mono out of your SW to the ResEQ IN then use the COMB OUT +/- for pseudo-stereophony?

You're a step ahead of me! I need to utilize my Serge more for outboard action. I purchased a second Particle because I use it so much and I wanted to try stereo Particle. It works!

I just purchased my third Malekko SND/RTN euro module for pedal integration and man that is opening things up in modular.

Finding the time to experiment is the hard part. I often write up block diagrams at work of ideas to patch. They mostly work out.

My FCSW was DOA. Unwilling to pay to return it to Canada for a repair on a brand new pedal, so returned it to the seller for less of a loss.

Using my CT5 via the Malekko SND/RTN modules w/ Particle, Echoshifter and Obscura (three SND/RTN's) mixed with 2HP Freeze module.

The SND/RTN modules justify all of these pedals, since my bass playing doesn't.

About the 856 Zellersasn : Is it possible to do live overdubs and reverse loops like on the CT5?

Curious how folks who got an 856 like it. I have a CT5 which is awesome, but no matter what I did with the 856 I couldn't gel with it at all. I eventually sold it on.

Ct5 seems to be in stock and I just ordered one. However, there are still people selling them for up to $800 in Reverb..am I missing something?

They only went back in stock last night/this morning, so many folk won't have noticed/realised. I can't see any for 800USD though. Got a link?
