One of the most interesting pedals possibly ever produced - the Montreal Assembly Count to Five has been on my list for a long time. I finally got an opportunity to trade for one. These are my thoughts on it - and some sounds.
The tape emulation market is pretty well stocked but this piece of kit from Foxpedal has a few tricks up its sleeves including a pretty spectacular built in reverb and the ability to bypass the feedback control creating a “wave” of sound that can be manipulated via a soft touch momentary switch. Tons of fun!Posted on: June 26, 2019
Last year it seemed like everybody was going absolutely crazy over this little DRV pedal from a small builder called 1981 Inventions. I chalked most of the hype up to the fact that the pedal was difficult to obtain (they are all made by 1 guy) but the hype has continued so I figured it was time to investigate further.Posted on: May 11, 2019
Since this was announced at NAMM I've been eyeing it as something that would probably end up taking a permanent place on my board. Finally picked it up yesterday and as usually happens it immediately inspired a quick recording.Posted on: May 8, 2019
Got this in a trade recently, wrote this a few weeks ago and have learned a lot more about this pedal but decided not to edit anything and instead to just record some audio for it.Posted on: January 26, 2019
Technology is progressing at a pretty unbelievable rate. Line 6 are pushing this category forward with their Helix series and especially with this Helix Native plugin. I sat down really quickly for some first impressions / thoughts. Expect this to become a recurring series.Posted on: December 16, 2018
Danelectro may not get the most credit for their pedals but if you're looking for size alone this one is going to really take the cake. This pedal is enormous, but it holds a very fun little trick within it.Posted on: December 9, 2018
Just a basic resynthesizer that samples your playing based on your dynamics, selects elements, refactors them and sustains them infinitely in real time. No big deal.Posted on: December 5, 2018
