Advice on a delay/freeze delay

Author Advice on a delay/freeze delay
anselmi
I got an EHX Cathedral pedal modded with CV INs for delay time and infinite/tap button

The mods makes it really great to use in all sort of freezing delay duties, kinda glitchy but smoother

I really like it but with all the delay options in module format I wonder if there is something that can cover the range of results of this pedal plus give me some other stuff

What module can do all the stuff in this demos and more?

Thanks!

Kinda hard to tell how much is modular and how much is pedal. Nice work though. thumbs up

FWIW, Chronoblob has VC hold, sync time and feedback. You also get to choose whether the pitch changes when the delay time does or not, which can give some nice effects. I believe the 4MS DLS has all this, and twice, but at twice the HP. Whatever your priorities... This is fun!

I totally like this one ! superb sounding

Chronoblobb comes to my mind first of the ones i have or had.

my opinion is that for this kind of work each delay sounds and feels different !
There is never just "That One".
The differences might be (very) subtle at a first glance but count when you are on it doing that play.
i had lots of fun with the chronoblobb. Echophone is way different but another winner for creative work and strange effects


I wonder how good the strymon Magneto would be for this type of use ?
tonymatte
+1 for the Chronoblob. A clouds can be programmed to do similar effects, especially with the alternative parasites firmware!
cptnal
Oh! There's also the dual tape delay in Warps Parasite firmware. That's pretty cool too.

(Edit: NB. Doesn't have hold.)
anselmi
thanks for the replies guys

since the first answer I was watching some Chronoblob videos but don´t find it that special...maybe I´m watching the wrong ones?

why did you choose it over others? there´s a lot of delays that seems to have this features, so what am I missing about the Chronoblob?

I had a Chrono and liked it a lot. So much that I in fact bought a 2nd one in order to have stereo delay.

Less than a week after that I was able to try out the 4ms Dual Looping Delay. I immediately got that and sold off the 2 Chrono's and never looked back.

The DLD is my dream come true module for delays!

i used the chronoblobb quasi exlusively for creative work. edit: well, any delay wink
I bought it some months after it came out.
the videos available then were doing it for me back then to decide that i take this one over any other then available, as sayed: chosen with "creative work" in mind.
I was NOT exactly interested in a delay as such.......
probably try to focus more on very short passages in available demos.
Thats finally an art initself so quasi wink

DLD and Clouds have been mentioned:
i have them, love them !
each is very different to the others when it comes to creative work with a delay.
cptnal
For me the deciding factor was that all its competitors were twice the size. What hasn't been mentioned yet is its open feedback loop, which is pretty cool. The others have that too, but the size...

To be fair, it's not my only delay. I use the Disting for stereo ping-pong, and Warps for its sloppy tape delay. But the Blob is my main one for sure.

CV controlled.

freeze function.

fits a rack.

you can add other modules to it to freak up the delay.

The more I get into the self-generating patches with lots of modulation etc part of eurorack the more I value my very first euro delay Befaco Crush Delay V2. In small HP and decent price it has a huge number of CV inputs – even Chronolob has less. But unfortunately no hold.

Of course, it is a PT2399 delay and specially tuned to be very glitchy and dirty. But that's what I love about it.

If only more eurorack creators were interested in adding more CV possibilities, but I understand that most people do not want to pay extra for that.

This is a nice video of the sound. This particular Crush Delay has a slight mod installed, but the sound is still exactly the same. https://youtu.be/-mzqXNvUMgY


Just so that I'm not off-topic! Here's another glitchy digital delay with a looping mode: Feedback Modules 1BIT Delay.

For me the Chronoblob is simply my go to when it comes to the things you described in your question, and the things I heard in those clips. Its great for rhythmic time warping type stuff, stuttering and super tight comb-filter delay times, but can also go really long and spacey and get all sorts of pitch bends. It's really insanely versatile. Can't comment on the DLD, but I want one!

But then again glitchy can mean different thing to different people. I'm thinking stuttering, syncopated, crystal clear witch precise controls allowing for repeatable results. But it could also mean a digital space plague from the nth dimension.

If thats what you're looking for then Chronoblob probably isn't what you're want. ookrsia mentioned the PT2399 chip, almost any module or pedal containing this chip can be pushed into complete insanity. I used to use a Synthrotek DLY for that sort of stuff and it worked great.

yep, size could be a problem, but I´m planning a new case so I´ll have plenty of space

also, I forgot to say "stereo" before...I think this is an important factor in what I have in mind (and certanly in my demos of the cathedral)

Stereo



it was in my list and I saw some videos before, but I´d have to check it again
I remember reading something about excessive current draw compared with any other module (with the exception of tube ones)...is it a problem?
flashheart
Demora's current draw is a mere 450mA cool Also it's discontinued so you'll have to find one 2nd hand.
