so I am about to add this dudes stuff to the mix, super reasonable and imo super fucking cool low rent handbuilt fuzz box/overdrive/feedback loop stuff. but i am audio fatigued/overwhelmed having listened to fuzz samples all day, so if i could enlist yer advice that would be cool.

oh shit just ordered 11 noisemaker pedals.

back and forth emails/phone calls made me pretty sure this is the kind of dude i want to support - he's definitely in it for the love of making pedals, and pretty committed to the idea that his stuff shouldn't cost more than reasonable labor + parts. the pedal community could use more people like this, and i wish more independent stores could make the leap from understanding what it's like to do what we do to supporting the manufacturing equivalent of that.

order for the curious:
3.14
crush fuzz
donner party
noise invaders (this is so so awesome)
chimera
four horsemen
five
soviet
arbiter
a-ok boost
infinity loop

Those Subdecay pedals are really wild. Thing about things like that they look really fun to mess with but trying to get them into tunes and use them live isn't quite as easy to do.

It's definitely not a total unknown company but the pedal I am currently all geeked on is a Keeley Nova Wah I got used a few months back off the Bay. You can make some cool nasty guitar tones with that box.

arby's, Wednesday, 3 October 2012 16:59 (five years ago) Permalink

the lag control is kind of where the magic happens, seems to delay the effected signal while passing the direct signal through untouched. also, they managed to pull off the magic POG thing where chords roll through it with no glitching whatsoever, but its a very different beast than the micropog. one thing to note is that even with the choir control all the way down, there is still some swirliness to the up and down octaves.

i might take another go at the rainbow machine here in a bit, the first time i tried one i was more baffled than anything, and i like weird stuff!

Also remembering stuff like "Is it left left up that gives me the cool bloopy blippy sound? Or is it right left down? Wait, no, that's the sound that goes zowie blippity bloop."

I see things in the Synth Zone thread with wacky tiny patch bays and a zillion knobs, and have the same thought. This seems like the kind of thing you want if you're committed to one-time unrepeatable experiments, or you're simply a noyz dood. Which is fine if that's what you're into!

Personally when I perform I kinda want to know what is going to come out of the speaker. It's hard enough just to remember what I'm supposed to be playing! Even Kaoss pad type things are a bit much for me.

how's life, Wednesday, 8 November 2017 14:42 (two months ago) Permalink

three weeks pass...

So, when TC Electronic released their budget "Smorgasbord of Tone" line about a year ago, I jumped on the Echobrain Analog Delay, because, well, analog delay for fifty bucks. It was alright, but got into self-oscillation way too easily. Just kind of figured the rest of the lineup would be pretty underwhelming, as well. They just recently announced a sort of "part two" to the line with some interesting "reissues" of classic Boss effects and that made me go back and sort of reassess the original ones from a year ago. I've kind of reached peak "weird reverb" with the Catalinbread Adineko, and the three Earthquakers I have (Levitation, Afterneath, and Ghost Echo) and I was really missing my (now out of production) Wampler Faux Spring Reverb (probably should have kept that one!). Add to that bit of desire for a more conventional reverb a bit of leftover credit at Guitar Center and, well, now I'm the owner of a TC Electronic Skysurfer Reverb. It does a pretty decent, decidedly chimey hall, a pretty standard plate (most of these sound the same to me, even across different brands), and an honest-to-goodness great spring sound. Definitely overall brighter than the Wampler tone I was chasing (TC reverbs are inherently pretty bright, I've learned), but stacks really well with the other "normal" reverb I have (Keeley Abbey Chamber Verb).

Couple minor discrepancies: it doesn't stack well with any sort of drive or distortion in spring mode (gets that weird kind of "harmonic buzz" —a phrase I've just now made up to describe this sound— in the reverb decay). This is a bummer because I like the spring mode the best. Also, it engages the effect when the footswitch is depressed and is entering the raised position. Like, where most pedals engage at the lowest point on the footswitch, the Skysurfer engages after you have pressed the footswitch all the way down and it moves back up. Is there a way to alter this? Change the polarity of the footswitch or something?

Otherwise, super reasonably priced no-nonsense reverb box. I dig it.

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Wednesday, 29 November 2017 04:32 (one month ago) Permalink

Is the self-oscillation controllable and/or tuneable? If so then for what I do with them it'd be $50 well spent and a discount solution - I mainly use the idiotbox Dimension X when I want to bring oscillation into play but then that means I can't use the modulated delay it provides.

Thomas Gabriel Fischer does not endorse (aldo), Wednesday, 29 November 2017 09:49 (one month ago) Permalink

I mean, yes technically. With the repeat knob you can dial the oscillation in and out. But, it starts to self-oscillate around the 1o'clock point on the knob and just turns into feedback from then on. There is no modulation on the Echobrain, but the repeats are very gritty. Also, it maxes out at 300ms delay time, so even at the longest setting it's still a fairly short interval.

a lot of the sounds are shimmerier/more "pretty" than i usually go for but it's nice to have those options, and the sample/hold and octave modes are really cool

na (NA), Thursday, 28 December 2017 15:14 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, the Canyon has had a pretty good showing in all of the "best pedals of 2017" year end lists I've looked at. It's a pretty enticing little box for a delay whore like me, even if it is by Electro-Harmonix.

Over the past little while, I've acquired a lot of new stuff. Too much to recount right here right now. But some of my favorites are:

—Malekko 616 LoFi Delay
Makes your delay repeats sound like 8 bit Nintendo music. While that description may make it sound like the pedal is gimmicky, I've actually been looking for something similar to the low bit rate repeats on the "SFX" mode from the Boss DD-500 ever since I got rid of it. And the 616 totally comes through in that regard. Pairs wonderfully with the Afterneath for a really dreamy sound.

—TC Electronic 3rd Dimension Chorus
I think, when it comes down to it, my favorite chorus sounds are decidedly on the subtle end of the spectrum. And the 3rd Dimension is definitely that. Not so subtle that you can't tell when it's engaged, but definitely not the woozy aspect, even at the most extreme settings. It's TC's version of the old Boss Dimension C pedal from the 80s. Even though I've never played on the Dimension C, I love the 3rd Dimension. It definitely gets that Robert Smith clean tone pretty spot on, which makes it an easy victory for me.

—Xotic SL Drive
I love my EP Booster so much that I bought the SL Drive without hesitation when I saw one in the used case at Guitar Center. It's definitely a more high gain drive pedal, but it has that super thick, heavy lows/mids thing to it, so I love it as well. There are four internal dip switches, so you can really get into some different tones. In the literature for the SL Drive on the Xotic website, it describes the pedal's goal to achieve a "woody" tone. I have to confess, when I first read that, I kind of rolled my eyes. But, after dialing it in to my preferred settings, I kind of get what they were referring to. It's a bit of an airy fairy description, but it works.

And I finally did what I vowed I would never do and got a wah pedal. Granted, it's an auto wah: the Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah. I mainly use it in the tap tempo mode set at the longest rate for eerie sounds. It's a cool sound when used in that regard.

Also ordered a TC Mini Mimiq Doubler with a gift card I got for christmas. Hasn't arrived yet, but I'm pretty keen to play around with it.

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Thursday, 28 December 2017 17:00 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Cool to see that TC has a $50 Dimension C clone. If this means that they're doing top-jack rehouses of Behringer clones of old boss pedals though, is it too much to ask for a $50 Hyper Fuzz?

how's life, Friday, 29 December 2017 09:38 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, I've seen a lot of people trashing the new TC "budget" stuff, simply based on the fact that it's essentially spruced up Behringer stuff. But honestly, I have two of them now (Skysurfer and 3rd Dimension) and I really feel like they're well done. Certainly built a hell of a lot better than the proper Behringers.

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Friday, 29 December 2017 19:34 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Hey jjjusten, what do you know/what info do you have on Noisemaker Effects? I saw their Nebula delay pedal in the used case at Guitar Center yesterday and I couldn't resist. It's a really different kind of pedal. After really being into the whole idea of Malekko's Lofi analog delay, it's cool to find the Nebula, as it's essentially like a lofi digital delay.

Also, the Mimiq is a subtly awesome pedal. Having a hard time turning it off.

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Wednesday, 3 January 2018 04:12 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I was a dealer (technically still am) for Noisemaker. The builder is a really nice dude, the pricing just didn’t work very well from a dealer perspective, but I’ve got nothing bad to say about him.

jjjusten, Thursday, 4 January 2018 03:02 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Is a doubler like the Mimiq any good for a synth? And where do you normally put it in your chain?

El Tomboto, Thursday, 4 January 2018 03:42 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I don't know what the Mimiq (or similar device) would be like on a keyboard instrument. But, I do know that TC designed the Mimiq specifically with guitar in mind.

Like I said, it's a very subtle, but noticeable, effect on my Telecaster. Granted, I only went for the mini version, so it only adds one double; the full version can add as many as three "dubs." I've put mine second in my chain, right after my tuner.

he doesn't need to be racist about it though. (Austin), Thursday, 4 January 2018 06:34 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i don't really get how the mimiq is different from any delay pedal set with the feedback low enough for it to repeat only once and the delay time set low.

Basically, but with some extra hoonja-doonja thrown in there.

For me, the actual sound of it is closer to a chorus set on a very low rate and depth.

Chorus is a short delay.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 5 January 2018 00:52 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I’m assuming it’s doing a slight pitch shift and delaying the signal a very short time as well. Basically the Digitech Luxe with slightly more delay.

El Tomboto, Friday, 5 January 2018 03:09 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Having played with the Luxe pretty extensively this past summer, I can say, even at its most conservative settings, it's still way less subtle than the Mimiq.

The Mimiq just has a really different vibe to it.

I've always steered clear of chorus and similar things, on the theory that my musical skillz are so rudimentary that the LAST thing I need in there is deliberately wrong notes. One time I turned on the Carbon Copy "mod" switch and the result was too sour even for my low standards.

I like fucked up and "off" sounds.

yeah the "extra hoonja-doonja" was clear to me in the demo video - I understand the principle but the link that how's life posted helped me feel less dumb

I would love to run a detuned unison synth patch through the mimiq on 3 and see how fucked up it sounds tbf

Actual LOL at "boring patches."

Some months ago, I traded in my MXR Reverb pedal and pretty much regretted it ever since. Reacquired one today and really fucking relived to have done so. Such a well-rounded and perfectly crafted reverb box. Had to trade my Afterneath for it, but enh, who cares. The "Epic" mode on the MXR is basically their version of the Afterneath, anyway. Fewer controls, but that's an even trade, because the MXR has five other excellent modes to play with.

So, I'm back to four reverbs now: MXR, Keeley Abbey Chamber Verb, Earthquaker Levitation, and Earthquaker Ghost Echo.

Also, ordered a Malekko 616 Dark and awaiting its arrival. Super excited to get that one dialed in.
