Gotcha, the fact that it remembers the user will help for sure.

Thanks!

OK, saving/loading user banks is added. So you can create several states, like: gig case, case1, case2,… and load and edit some effects without the need to fill in all the effects.

update is *supersimple* :cloud:


probably my easiest .wav file update ever :party:


since i was used to work with modularlevel was i patching the out of my AI directly into my O-Tool, checking for 1V signal level.
then i patched the cable directly into the FXaid.
First attempt worked ! :cloud:

Wow, that effect list is something else. There's so many I want to try. I was looking through the list and thought it would be awesome if it generated a little cheatsheet and lo! That's what get memo does. Can't wait!

:woah: :hail: That is quite a list of effects! Thank you for categorizing them:
Reverb (45), Delay (21), Shifters (9), Shaper (5)
I foresee a day when I'll be swapping out my Pico DSP with FX Aid. :tu:

Phenomenal list!
It’s a dream to be able to select and arrange the desired effects onto the module, just amazing!
Waiting for mine to arrive, but I think I made a mistake only ordering one of them...

Here is storing presets steps: press the Right button for 4 sec until all leds are off and do not release it, press Left button to light up the first led of the lower row and press it several times to move the active led from left to right to the desired position 1…4 to store the preset at that position, once done – release the Right button. Dry/Wet knob position is not stored.

That is quite the nice editor and impressive amount of effects. Great stuff, definitely will be picking one of these up

Totally agree. That feature alone is great.. Can't wait to get the funds to order one or perhaps even two.

Got em! First patch. Last column of knobs is send to the FX Aid doing pitch shifting delay, second to last column is a long reverb. Live tweaking https://www.instagram.com/p/B6KFHSrh-E0/

Sounds great. What's that knob interface?

Mine should arrive today, really looking forward to having this in the rack. For its size it seems like a super little module. Not sure one will be enough either but you have to start somewhere :tu:

its this passive matrix mixer
super easy diy build. even if your not a diy'er, its very easy.
i built two of them in an hour or less.

Holy shit! That sounds fantastic! I might have to consider two of these now. Mine finally hit the states and I can’t wait!

Been playing around with the module - even with my fat fingers I can still tweak the knobs so that's cool. Sounds really nice, especially the dual effects. I haven't played with the app yet but will do some sorting of my faves. It's important to try various different sounds to get the most out of the different presets just like using any decent effects unit. Looking forward to throwing some vocals/vocoder/samples in there.

The only thing I don't like is the rate knob is the wrong way round for me - why do the delays slow down when you turn up the rate? Any chance of a reconsideration of that?

Also, I second for some delays that don't doppler shift when you tweak the rate, can be implemented or is there a hardware limitation?

Well worth the price & HP, and means I can free up a disting for other duties instead of using it for effects.

ianski, what delays have you used before where a knob dedicated to delay time has shorter delays in the clockwise direction? in all the delays I've seen, turning "up" delay time increases the time between repeats. the opposite would be counterintuitive

I’ve seen them done both ways.
Actually, most modular delays I’ve used are shorter delays clockwise- 4ms DLD, Strymon Magneto, disting delays, doepfer delays, etc
Although chronoblob is opposite.
And most guitar pedal delays are the opposite way too.

I can see the argument both ways here.
Your either increasing speed And decreasing length or increasing length and decreasing speed. :despair:

May be it is Sample Rate action discussed, not ordinary Delay time, which increases with CW rotation.
Sample Rate CV assignment is done like this on purpose: positive voltage decreases the Sample Rate, and negative increase it. My understanding is that users will most likely be wanting to decrease the sample rate, thus positive going envelopes and other positive CV sources (some LFOs, velocity, pitch CV,…) can be applied to the CV input to decrease the sample rate with the help of trifle attenuator. So no need for attenuverter.

It is not possible to change the delay time without the pitch change. I may add muted versions, where the audio is muted during the delay time change – so the pitch artifact is not prolonged by high delay feedback amount.

Replaced the knobs with these micro knobs from befaco, much more wiggleable now!

Yeah its not a major issue by any means, just what I'm most used to. I consider it like a "rate" knob when it goes faster when turning up. The majority of delays I've used over the years seem to work this way.

Great idea about using smaller knobs, I might give that a try! Cheers.
