Hydra tremolo/reverb pedal with a Rev2

There's lots of demos with guitar, but none I could find with a synth. So I made one:

Re: Behringer Mono/Poly!

I owned an original for many years and learned the bulk of my synth knowledge from what was probably thousands of hours of noodling. I certainly can't make any definitive judgments from a few youtube videos which of course are subject to all sorts of distortions and changes from recording, rendering...

Re: Soundtoys Bundle

SoundToys have been on idle since years now with almost no changes or updates. The plugins are good but slowly getting passed in every category. Echoboy was a highlight for ages but I think Replica XT and the Valhalla delay have easily exceeded it. Because of the variety I still use them from time t...

As much as I love phasers, to me the PHW16 sounds more like a stomach noise simulator.

Have you considered the new Sequential Prophet 5 Rev4?
+1 I think it'd solve most of the OP's requirements.
I wanted a P5 40 years ago - but the price, ouch! Now today I'd still like a P5 - but the price, oof!

Re: Prophet Rev 2 or...?

With four LFOs that can be assigned just by holding the button and turning the desired destination knob, you can make very complex modulations without ever touching the mod matrix. Then press the 'write' button twice to save. You could easily program an entire bank without using the mod matrix. The ...

Re: Ninja Tunes Erica Synths Zen Delay

I find the Zen Delay perfect for adventures in dub! Here it's providing some subtle, playfully timed washy delays for the chord stabs: Beautiful subtle little bits and clicks with moody stereo. Nice :) Much as I love my Zen I do wish the filter was before the delay circuit, not after. And of course...

Re: Clockwork orange soundtrack phaser sound

Given the date of the movie isn't this most likely to be a Biphase or Phase-90? And while I'm a huge phaser fan so far as this music goes I think presentation in the original form is far superior:

Re: QPAS or Moon Phase?

I only have the Moonphase so can only comment on it alone. I characterize it as a 'finishing filter', something at the end of the chain for some stereo interest, panning and flourishes. It's beautiful, a bit quirky, likes gentle handling and gives detail.

Re: Claravox theremin

As an ex-theremin owner I'll just say that if you want to go beyond random noodlings you'll need to invest a very substantial amount of time and effort. Keyboard skills count for nothing here. I'd put it on par with learning the violin.

Re: Recommendations - Whats the best tremolo pedal?

I recently bought the Fulltone Supa-Trem2. Reasons: I wanted true stereo in and out as well as stereo field adjustment, knob per function, and tap tempo. I was very keen on the Seymour-Duncan Shape Shifter until I discovered that it wasn't actually stereo but a weird sort of double mono. The other c...

I finally settled on the Neunaber Immerse. Besides the sound the main deciding factors were no menus, no dual-function knobs, no computer app, no hidden functions.

Re: “Ambient” filter

I have a Moonphase. I would never recommend it as a primary filter, or for everyday duties, but as a "finishing stereo filter" it is beautiful. Might be a good fit.

Re: Lack of space in music

The easiest thing to achieve on a gazzllion devices is a looped phrase to which you add a layer. And another layer, and another. Most devices also have a tough time gracefully coping with anything over 32 steps. Combined with this is the fact that it's usually easier to add parts than to take them a...

New stereo reverb pedal

Was exciting yesterday to discover a new pedal with pretty much the exact feature set I wanted ! How rare is that ? Hi and low cut, predelay, stereo in and out (4 TS jacks), the usual basic controls. There's no modulation (which I prefer), and no menu diving, no screen, no messy preset system, no du...
