Re: OTO BIM vs Tape delay

I keep trying to sell the BIM (I also have a Rubberneck, a Volante and a Korg Stage Echo) because of the inscrutable interface and really only a couple of useful modes for me... but it excels so much as a special effect I haven't been able to do it.

Re: UAFX Pedals (Universal Audio)

There have been other attempts to make downloadable effects pedals in the past, most of them unsuccessful... UA have a solid reputation in plugins´ audio quality, but I don´t know if this is enough to be accepted I think most people in the big pedal market (guitar players) don´t care for studio gra...

Re: Guitar pedals vs Plugins

In terms of quality, if you're running to a DAW anyway, a quality reverb plugin (UAD or Relab's 480 for instance) will be as good as any affordable reverb pedal. A pedal has the hands-on tweakability, though. Delays, tape and BBD may not be perfectly emulated ITB to you, that's a judgement call. I k...

Re: Vermona retroverb lancet vs Ekdahl moisturizer

I've found the Moisturizer to be pretty useless, to be honest. Incredibly narrow band of control - as in 'no reverb, no reverb, no reverb, 10 degrees of movement where there's a mix, then 100% wet reverb.' Same with the filter and all other controls.

Bummed that my Bi-Phase II outputs an audible click in time with Phasor A - passable with the rate under ~10 o'clock but too much otherwise. Guess it's going back if I can get them to return an e-mail.

Re: Roland support nightmare- I need a knob!

Honestly, I'd try selling it as-is - knock $8 off for a cat-bit knob and explain that up front. Most people aren't going to care, something like that is factored into the used discount.

Re: What's on your waiting list?

MS-20 FS reissue - wouldn't have pre-ordered if I'd known that Sound Parcel was going to charge me in early September but I haven't gotten annoyed enough at the delays to ask for a refund. Have wanted a big boy MS-20 since I saw one on-stage with the Fall circa 2010.

In the crowd of synth makers, Behringer seems to me the most punk, in-your-face, fuck you, hahahahahaa, teenage of the bunch. Which isn't actually distasteful to me. It's not something to aspire to, but it is more than mildly entertaining to watch. And often cringey. Harassing people via lawsuits c...

the interesting questions (to my mind) come down to what makes Behringer different than other companies who copy old designs.

Also starts clipping way too quickly, so better save some extra cash for an attenuator to put before it :roll:
Definitely - no issue with synths yet but when I put it behind a Strymon Iridium or HX Stomp going into my interface, it clipped incredibly easy with longer decay times.

Re: Chase Bliss & Meris CXM1978 reverb (Lexicon 224 LARC-like pedal)

Torn on this so far - went for it on a whim, thinking it could be my one stop reverb pedal shop (ie sell my OTO Bam and it's minimal interface) and flying faders are cool. Compared to the UAD 224 and Relab 480, the plugins win pretty handily. ValhallaVintageVerb probably also wins, but it requires m...

Drum machine is commonly used to describe an instrument that creates sounds on its own.
