Continuing our pedal builder interview series, this week we have Steve Demedash from Demedash effects out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. A place so cold that there is nothing else to possibly do but craft incredible hand-built guitar effects.
Continuing the trend of talking to people who take matters into their own hands - in this case literally - we chatted with the folks at Baum about their company history, their design philosophy and especially about their guitars.
David Rolo of DroloFx was kind enough to answer a number of questions about his products, music, creativity and technology.Posted on: November 4, 2019
A random reddit thread led us to a few questions for Elliot Garbus - the creator of a series of Meris preset editors for Mac & PC. What a great idea.Posted on: October 28, 2019
Old Blood Noise Endeavors x Datachoir collab results are in - this ridiculously fun Delay / Reverb / Reverse pedal. As soon as this was announced I knew I would end up with one. Incredibly inspiring and fun pedal - tons of audio samples contained within.Posted on: October 24, 2019
We asked Olav aka @olzios if he wanted to contribute some words to this little website and he agreed. Here’s the first installment talking about something a lot of us can probably relate to - the ever changing pedal collection.Posted on: October 21, 2019
TJ Dumser provided a walkthrough of his Ableton Live rig, built around building massive soundscapes in a live environment. Interested in looping? Ambient music? Sick pedalboards? This article is probably for you.Posted on: October 9, 2019
Continuing my love and hate relationship with synth pedals - see infinite jets review - I try again with a more “straightforward” offering from the team at Keeley Electronics. This article has a lot of sounds in it.Posted on: October 3, 2019
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.Posted on: September 28, 2019
A few months ago I was struggling with getting sounds that I wanted out of my pedalboard. I was looking for more and more synth inspired sounds and was trying to replicate them on a guitar, this approach was honestly quite frustrating and the results were sub par. I decided to take the jump into an actual synth - this is what happened.Posted on: September 18, 2019
With a few days off in Copenhagen - instead of participating in the local bar scene or watching endless hours of TV - I decided to put together a mobile recording rig and try to focus some creative energies through itPosted on: July 9, 2019
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
