EHX 16 second delay vs 95000

Post by odditymedium » Fri Aug 16, 2019 4:51 pm

i was watching charles cohen speak about his trick of using the EHX 16 second delay with the easel:

is there something special in this pedal that cannot be done by an EHX 95000 (with a delay before it, obviously)...

He had an original 16 Second delay. The clock had different rhythms that changed with the clix level. I don't know if that was how they were or if his was messed up in a good way. He would feed the clix out into the Easel with a present card that allowed the clix to control the sequencer. It kept everything in sync so he could later with the 16 Second as a looper.

can this syncing of loops to the easel clock be done with any new loopers? like the 95000? would that use midi going to the 218 keyboard?

I had something similar going with an EHX 2880, sending midi out to a midi/clock converter, and then on to the Easel where I had a card that routed the incoming clock signal to the seqnecer. Guess you could use any looper that sends midi out for this.

I’m fairly sure there was a post on Muffs years ago that showed the card settings (possibly by Todd Barton). I didn’t even solder mine up...just fed some resistors through the right points.

The midi - clock converter I used was a Touchprone device that had a pot on it controlling the clock division of the clock it spat out. It was about $100 but stopped working and I never bothered to fix it.

I can’t recall but it might also have worked sending clock straight into the pulse input and then routing on the easel to the seq, env etc ...so no card.

Pretty sure this was the topic....just one resistor needed on the card I think (there is a pic half way down the first page).

And here is the sync device I used

sb, is this you?

he seems to be using a similar midi to cv clock converter

tell me about this card, will i need it every time? can't this midi to cv be done without a card?

Not necessarily a pedal, but MN's Mimeophoe delay-thing really seems nice - stereo, bizarre tempos and up to 47 seconds of delay. Quite amazing! Seriously considering this.

16 second digital delay ri. Has 4 minutes of delay instead of the 16 seconds the original had.

That’s not me, but looks like he’s using the same setup. You can see he has the output of the sync box going into the ‘to card’ input.

I dug out my sync box yesterday and can confirm it doesn’t work when patched directly into one of the pulse inputs on the easel (eg keyboard pulse in). I needed to go via the ‘to card’ and then use a card that had a resistor bridging INV and ‘Pulsar trig in’ on the card (doesn’t have to be pulsar...could be Env or Seq). The following thread shows how the card can be configured:

im using a 4ms DLD succesfully for this job. the great advantage over the EHX loopers is that u can have two diffrent lengths and its cheaper
