That is a steal.

Last night I mixed voice and Yamaha Reface CS through it in a blend. Strange. Put my new little Roland TR-08 into it and made some great rhythms.
Oh I know! This was not something that was at all on my radar but I listened to an interview with Knobs where he said it’s one of his favorite pedals, it’s on the cover of Pedal Crush, and then I see this. Excited to get it. Looks really interesting.

Crazy stuttering vocals or drums through a reverb wash. Raise them up through a mix channel and then kill it (my mixer has kill switches). A ping pong echo adds to the weirdness.
Thanks! I had another go at this using a loop of vaguely rhythmic contact mic clunks and taps and the result seemed a lot more usable (for a very particular value of "usable") than when I've tried it with bass plunking in the past...

Hello,is it possible to save presets in the count to five using a midi pedal (like the DMC 4 midi disaster). I know we can do it with chase bliss pedals but don't know
if it is possible on the count to 5.

No, it doesn't have midi, CV in on the other hand, but you can't really save presets that way. I think you can do it with the 856 for ZELLERSASN pedal.

My CT5 is one of my never-ever sell pieces of equipment. The CT5 and my Malekko Charlie Foxtrot.

I just ordered a CT5 and PURPLL.
I've been putting off the CT5 too long, wanted one for a while now. The PURPLL wasn't planned, but I saw the price (very reasonable for what it is) and then I listened to some demos. Sold me immediately.
Being house-bound for 2 weeks has me eager for some new FSU toys, so I'm really looking forward to these.

Would you say CT5 could be an alternative to Morphagene?

Depends on what you want to do with it I guess, since the Morphagene has more features and control.
One big difference is memory. CT5 has either 4 or 8 seconds of memory depending on the mode. The Morphagene can record almost 3 minutes of audio in a reel.

Congrats! You've picked an excellent "first". They're addictive though, so lookout bank account. Pedals and modules multiply like rabbits. I think I have a few too many. :help:

Indeed! Not the simplest pedal to start with!

After buying a power supply (cioks dc5) and a ALM006 S.B - ALM, it's an expansive pedal! LOL

Good thing is, the next pedals will be cheaper hehehe :yay:

Thank you MM for all your posts I came across. They've been very helpful.

I like to run this pedal through some kind of an auto-wah.
The only thing I dislike with this pedal is the led. It's so stroong it litteraly burns my retina.

Thank you.

My posts are not always the most comprehensive or precise or even coherent, but it's good to know they add to the pool of information here at Muffs.

I think of the CT-5 as an instrument that I use in parallel (even though it is in series) with whatever it's got going into it.

It has it's own processing after in most cases.

It is a unique thing. Like a few pedals in one.

Please share your uses.
