Finished. Rendering the file. It's a narrated walkthrough and is... way too long... like 25 minutes AFTER editing.

I'll throw it up here, and then crank out some shorter sound files. Killer fuzz, btw.

Yeah, 25 mins that will make us feel the waiting even longer ;)
I look forward to your demo! :guinness:

There is full annotation on SoundCloud. Feel free to skip around. There are some pretty good moments in there. I like the Saw Animator stuff quite a bit.

In short, this is a quality fuzz unit. Just what I was looking for since it goes from subtle to insanity in a predictable manner. I'll see how it does with the Buchla 200e.

Headphones or quality speakers are fairly necessary for this one, kids. Especially if you check out the low-end theory at 18 minutes.

The first 5 minutes is almost all talking. Skip this if desired.

Merci Kent :tu: Quite complete and useful review. I like the low-end part a lot, and the instability comes in nicely :sb:.
But i'll use my unit next to the Saw Animator. Did you try passing the same waveform through SA and Fuzz in parallel and mixing the outputs back together?

Cheers,
Björn

Your wish is fulfilled, dear friend:

I'm speaking slowly and clumsily due to monitoring the output of the recording chain. Too much latency.

Kent, you are da man :guinness:
Personally i find the mix more interesting from a timbral point of view than both in series. The Strakal Brulu seems to be exactly the type of distortion i was hoping for. :) The feedback tuned to accentuate some pitches is :bacon:
This is what i have the M11's for, mixing of gritty timbres and let specific timbres only pass through at specific moment in the sequence to put some notes in evidence. Sinus -> Saw animator+Fuzz, will become the heart of my mini 6u system...

I hope Gael ships them fast, your demos made me want it even more than before! :sb:
Cheers,
Bjôrn

Thanks, guys.

I've now added this version of the Strakal Brulu to the Squiggletronics Rack Planner Database. It should show up soon. Email me if you can't wait.

I have my Fuzz now for around a month and do not want to miss it anymore!
It's :love:! Next to the great sound, what i really appreciate about the new Straka Brulu is it's expressiveness. Few and straight forward controls, that are a lot of fun to "play". The module just :bananaguitar:

Thanks Gael for bringing this module to the Eurocrack world :hail:
