In a strange attempt to compete in a space that doesn't really need competition. Behringer has launched Free Music Tribe which seems to be a Reverb knockoff with no sales fees.
Death by Audio has released a lot of interesting stuff in the past and this new "Rooms" digital reverb is no different. This is a uniquely voiced, reverb and more pedal.

Sometimes it seems like a pedal company is just in tune with you. Right now for me that company is Old Blood Noise Endeavors, this latest release "MINIM" is checking all the boxes for me.

The folks over at Strymon Engineering have been teasing this for a while but finally dropped the actual details. Looks like everyone's favorite complicated small-box pedal manufacturer is stepping into the Amp Sim / IR game!

Limited edition pedal releases are always fun. Here's another one - a reissue of the classic Maxon OD-808 but with a bit of a spin on it. Robert Keeley has been modding these for years and it's cool to see the mod officially endorsed.
