Sampler Archives - Pedal of the Day

Sampler


Instrument crossovers are fairly rare in this business, but we’re super-excited about the one we’re bringing you today. The PLUS is a piano-style sustain pedal from Gamechanger Audio, and while that may seem like a not-too-flashy effect, it is. All the ambience and swells you’ve been searching for in countless reverb pedals presents itself here in a unique and unexplored fashion, giving you a ton of layers and audio...

If you guys have ever had the pleasure to play an effects pedal from the warped mind of Joe Anastasio from Lone Wolf Audio, you know what kind of crazy gear that dude creates. Today we’re going to look at one of the wackiest, awesomest pieces of musical equipment we’ve seen, a pedal that really can’t fit into just one category, but will revive your interest in how music and sound are created. The Acetylene Nirvana is...

There was a period of time in the early-mid ’90’s where DOD was putting out some really experimental effects, and we were able to track one of them down for today’s featured pedal. The DFX94 is a digital delay, but it’s also a sampler as well, and boasts a full FOUR SECONDS of delay time, which was pretty unheard of at the time it was introduced, and is still pretty lengthy even by today’s modern...

Today’s guest review comes to us from Ric N. – find him on Instagram (@ricnewsom) and Twitter (@ricnewsom). “What does that do?” “Drugs. It does drugs. All of them.” That’s how a lot of conversations start about my Count to Five. Granted, explaining what a delay/sampler with pitch, speed, and direction manipulation DOES is usually more than people can digest -including me. But I’ll do my...

Alright, kiddies, you’re in for a real treat today. The Dream Sequence from Hologram Electronics is one of the hottest pedals out at the moment, and if you haven’t heard it or heard of it, we’ll try to give you a great review and demo so you can know it’s true power. Part envelope filter, part tremolo, part pitch shifter, part sampler and part sequencer with a dash of synth thrown in for good measure, this...

We have reviewed several effects from Red Witch Pedals here at Pedal of the Day, and each time, it’s an adventure for both the mind and the ears. Today’s featured pedal may top the list in regards to both those things, as the Synthotron Analog Synth is capable of producing an insane amount of noises, sounds and tones, some predictable, some outrageous and all Red Witch, for sure. Let’s dive right into this...

As a self taught guitar player, I’ve been trying to find ways to get some practice playing along to a rhythm track. CD’s, prerecorded backing tracks, loopers, you name it, I’ve tried it. They get old pretty quick, or my playing skill isn’t good enough. I started hearing about the Trio a few months ago and was pretty curious. I got the chance to get a demo of the pedal and was hooked.This thing is super user...

As much as I love my TimeLine Delay from Strymon, I find the banking system to be a little bit difficult at times. Having to hit 2 switches at once to go up or down scrolling through presets is not my favorite part about that pedal…well, I must not be the only one, because Strymon has heard our complaints and come up with an elegant, easy-to-use and multi-functional solution: the MutliSwitch. Compatible with the TimeLine, BigSky...

Vintage pedals always seem to have an indescribable “Cool” factor going for them. Maybe it’s the chipped paint, missing knobs or ripped-off back label, but you can instantly see they’ve been through the ringer, and have still survived. This shows you that they are A: Built to last, and B: Good enough for folks to have used them over and over again throughout the years. Today’s vintage find is an odd...
