Vidret has got the notch filter distortion to sound real good. I've never quite got it to work good. But I approve of jamming Wolverine Blues.

Distorted Mode --> Notch filter --> Gain maxed out = jammed Wolverine Blues riffs for a good 30 minutes.

Fuck, i could make an entire board just of of Bitquests.



I could probably manage with just BitQuests and Count To 5s*.

One day, when I get bored with all the other things ;)






*and a Miku, of course.

:lol:
You can do some settings of the CT5 with the Bitquest too.

Yeah, probably it was just a lucky setting I randomly run into. :lol:
I think probably the trick is to find the right match of notch frequency and tone knob.
To be fair I was running into it with a slightly overdriven signal.


Wolverine Blues is legit, I've been on a big "old school" re-listening wave in the last weeks.

Yeah, I was jamming Chief Rebel Angel yesterday (just by chance). Holy shit, what a banger.

Maybe... get to know it in fuzz mode first with the mix all the way up. Then test clean mode and learn how the controls change. Then plug in a Moog EP-3 and go bananas.

I could have sworn I read a very recent post linking to some indication that Dr Ryantist is close to bringing out a new version of this classic? Now I can't find it anywhere - did I awake from a dream about the alternate universe that is the one worth saving? :idk:

He's talked about an update. At a guess I'd say it'd be the same pedal but with the midi capabilities from the Atmosphere. I don't think it's even at the drawing board stage. The replacement for the Trem is next on the list, afaik.

Yeah, about a year ago Ryan said a BQ V2 was in the works but that it was still early to talk about hypothetical release dates. All i know is that its layout will be similar to the Atmosphere.. it's the only pedal i'm really looking forward to without even knowing if/when it will be out, but also yeah, new tremolessence comes first.

paraphrasing what goroth said: Dirtquest is Bestquest.

When first approaching pedals like this, i found it useful to write down some settings, just to keep exploring without fear of forgetting how you got THAT sound.
Here's the note-sheet I made at the time, hope it helps (see attached file) :joy:
