In lieu of ‘Blooper’ it seems like the Chase Bliss family have done it again…! Time to lock up the ol’ wallet.
Oh damn I was wondering about Blooper just yesterday! Awesome!
…and that’s a problem because?
“two channel” had me there for a sec… too bad
Chase Bliss pedals seem amazing but the lack of stereo makes them unsuitable for me for general purpose fx’ing
But then great for Special fx usage…
because people use stereo, especially Elektron users. One of the reaons Red Panda reissued the Particle pedal as stereo and as good and interesting this one sounds, mono is a vibe killer.
Anyone know how long the max loop length is on this thing? Their site is somewhat lacking in the gritty details
I always found too many wide stereo sources ate up masses of space in a mix. Unless I’m using a pad or field recording, 99% of my other material is recorded mono and mixed into a stereo field. Ping-pong delays and expansive reverbs are lovely in stereo, but I wouldn’t use them all the time.
Anything in the Knobs video?
I understand that but many people (including myself) record just a stereo out and all mixing is done in the boxes. For example my setup is DT-DN-AH-Recorder. No multi-tracking, no mixers, no computer involved. When I saw this pedal and heard how it sounds, for a brief moment I thought it would be wonderful to stick it in the chain between DT and DN… Summing the DT stereo output to mono with a cable adaptor could give me potential phasing issues and I lose any ability to place my drums in the stereo field.
Loopop has a proper review.
Hainbach makes me so happy. What a great demo too.
Preferred the Loopop video this time, cool sounds from Hainbach but not much in the way of explanation!
Kinda wish the Mood had left out the delay/reverb section and focused on the looper, like with the Blooper prototypes. With the limited controls the looper doesn’t have enough going on to be truly interesting IMO.
FWIW, I’m an Elektron user and I use some mono FX pedals/devices regularly. .When I play with the band, I use a mono rig. Stereo rig makes more sense for solo gigs, maybe playing in a duo where the other person is a singer or drummer.
Neat pedal - particularly how the Clock knob is used.
What are the opinions on getting this vs say morphagene or nebulae? Curious on peoples input!
The Digitakt, Octatrack and Model:Samples can act great as loopers including a versatile fx unit…
The Morphagene would do similar things but I’d not say it’s even remotely the same.
I was looking at it, but I can achieve the same results with the ZOIA. As much as I want the pedal for the sake of having it, I’ve just gotten rid of 80% of my pedal cupboard… I’m a massive loop pedal nerd - it’s my favourite pedal type next to straight-up delay - so I’ll likely end up with this and Blooper when it’s out!
Is this not what Blooper turned into? Be cool if that one actually comes out as well at some point!
