Who has tried Dementia DM-1?

Author Who has tried Dementia DM-1?

Ok so I'm looking for something to make some noisy out-there textures and maybe drones for under $200 or around there. Anybody tried this one?
insomniyack
Well...I guess I'll be the first.

I got one being shipped out from Analogue Haven and then I'll put some opinions on here if anybody's interested.

I've never heard of it. Please do let us know what you think of it and sound files would be extra-nice.

I got the synth today and there is only one way to describe it...

A HAUNTED HOUSE IN A BOX!


This thing screams and shrieks and really is a unique sound!!

Truly beautiful! twisted

I'm glad for this thread. I listened to some demos of the dementia, and some of their other other pedals, and I think I'm going to make me a purchase.

hah - got my today. Damn - this thing is nice. There are these nooks and crannies hiding all over this thing where the sound just freaks out - in a great way. Wish it had some external control, but I'll definitely like having this thing around. I like what I've seen from Audible Disease so far - has anyone here tried that lofi sampler?
insomniyack
Yeah it's one of those devices that you can slowly turn a knob and the sound just changes dramatically! There's lots of screaming synth sounds you can get out of it and it really does have a sound all it's own! I love just leaving it on a certain sound and listening how it slowly mutates over time! It's a great little analog box!!

I have one. It's okay for really grunging up some audio, but it has some faults. It emits a fairly loud plosive when the sample stops, which is hard to work around if trying to use the device subtly. It doesn't pass the input at all, so you can't use it to interrupt audio (like you would need to, for example, for doing beat repeats). And its looping function isn't really of much use, since it only loops a very short initial segment of the recorded audio.

But, when taking advantage of what it is, rather than pining over what it isn't, can be a cool little device.

THis was my first "noise box" since I was using field recordings/contact mic sheet metal and distortion since I was a wee knuckle head. I really love the way this thing can shreik and howl and sound really metallic and nasty without getting thin. I'm probably going to buy 1 or 2 more to play around with.
insomniyack
Was messing around with this last night in the studio...wow I really love this thing!

Just a lil "bump" to show some love for this amazing piece!!

My music can be described as "wall noise" composed of am and shortwave radio frequencies and ring modulation. This little synth box has been a dream in allowing me to add pixelated, odd, "living" sound to my music. I usually keep it at an inaudible setting and then subtly dial it in and let it crackle and shriek at it's own discretion.

I like the Dementia and I have used it quite a lot... I really enjoy the way it can go from silent to LOUD with just a little touch. Great for chaotic noise sessions and experimentation.
However, since knittingram brought it up - Crowphonics is the shit!
I got three of them and just got the CRO-2, damn nice stuff.

Didn't realize that the '2' was ready. I've sold off a lot of my noise boxes as my modular has increased in size...but I've kept the stuff that really struck me as high quality and unusual. The Infernal Noise Machine has stayed, the Trogotronic stuff has stayed, the Crowphonics has stayed. A few others too. I like his whole aesthetic.
