Only when ive turned my feedback loop on and twiddled knobs about while the Hyperion and Dark Destoyer are making all sorts of noise. If i get chance ill record a loop for it, other than that not really played with it enough, i get lost in the delay and ring mod mostly.

Cheers for the settings Clean Channel i just need to find a printer now deffo useful!!

Thanks guys!

Re Notch Filter: the manual phasing sounds you can get with an expression pedal are beautiful! Feels great to play along and control the sweep to match the pulse/mood of the music.

Hey y'all,

Just a heads up that I edited my previous post. I noticed there was a small typo on the Notch Filter controls, so I fixed that.

I also added another chart that includes the Dirty Quest controls!

I started using both the Notch filter and the HP LP Filter quests much more once I started feeding them really ugly bright sounds.

First I cranked the tone knob on a big muff and used the notch filter to make it sound good and balanced again, then I used the strangle switch on my Jaguar to cut all the bass and unclutter all that the filter and bit crush quests had going on.

I just got a Moog expression pedal. I mostly use the clean delay and clean ring settings. On the clean delay I would usually mess with cntl 0 to create interesting sounds, so I wasn't sure that I would find the expression control of cntl 1 to be that useful. I was wrong. The expression pedal is very useful for creating all sorts of background glitchiness. Quickly pushing the pedal up and back is great for a record scratching sound. Never knew I had any hip hop in me, but it sounds very cool.

Also, I find the BQ always sounds great when you feed it Catalinbread Echorec. Too much fun...

Can anyone point me in the direction of a PDF version of the booklet that came with the pedal? I picked one up used, and have no clue what anything does.

ikr. definitely my most used setting on the BQ. the verb with the ring mod is so clean as well.. makes me really want to try an rrr

RRR is really, really good. But the sounds are straight from the chip. The reverb in the BQ is directly from Ryan's brain.

With the tone knob and the predelay you can pretty much make it sound like anything though. The BQ that is.
But there is definitely room in life for both. RRR pre dirt, BQ post.

I cant stop to use the pitch shifter with dirt and a octave down. It tracks great and sounds massive!

i kind of want to put it in the loop of the amp to get a bigger swoosh from the flanger but that pretty much rules out the entire dirt side of it :/


suggestions/settings for more swoosh? i've noticed setting ctrl 2 really low when flanging on the clean mode makes it sweep that small part very thorougly, as opposed to having it way up and just running past those swooshy points, for example.
