Just got my Persuadatron in and took it for a spin. It rules, and sounds great. Nice blue LCD screen, row of red blinkenlites, and so much graphics that it can blend into a white rack just as easily as a black one. I'm in the heart of Phoenix and got 43 stations on the first scan, using a 12 ft. cable. Lots in spanish. Pulled out the antenna cable and still getting plenty without it. Really perfect set of features, love the muting tricks, and all the tasty flavors of noise bursts, and volume control makes it pedal friendly! Heavenly. Really glad I waited until now to get a radio module, this is the one.

Love their aesthetic and demos of all their stuff sound nice. Look forward to hearing what you think about it.

As a source of unexpected audio (like Radio Music) it's pretty awesome. Quick gates letting in little grains of noise and music (often mixed)...had that going through a reverse reverb and a HPF delay. So many dreamy sounds coming through and no idea what they could be from. The mexican/spanish stations are a gold mine for both aggressively noisy and brilliantly musical soundbytes.

Great news, it looks like my prayers and bitching for a dedicated and somewhat simple euro pitch shifter have finally been answered. Getting one of these asap:

holy butts that sounds AWESOME. ORDERED.

i liked the Pico DSP, but just didn't like the flow of use? kinda too much jammed into too small a space (giggety)? this looks awesooooommeeeee.

hells yesh on the pitch shifting, hells YESH on the normalled FX 1 -> FX 2.

Radio Samplins - no, yesh. that sounds HELLA fun. and after falling butts deep in love with Shard woot more his modules.

STOP TEMPTING ME DAMNIT.

also, reverb tank question -

mines was working fine, then i put in the Scanned which isn't right above it (have the tank velcro'd inside my case behind the top row, far right) and now i get a high pitched whine out of it. will the Spin chips in the Dual FX bother it? i was thinking about putting it on the inside of the side of the case on the right, hoping that would be far enough away from digital interference.

this is my setup right now (as soons as i can get a 1uo_C) -

Image

and i'd like to keep the 1u Reverb over far right, but the cables to the tank aren't the longest, so if i have to move the tank too far i'll have to reposition the module.

suggestions? thoughts?

Where did you order the Dual FX from? Never dealt with a tank and don't really want to. I've been exploring the reverbs in my A+H mixer/interface lately, which are actually really good for being so simple, now that I've decided to pay attention to them. Direct recordable/one less DAAD conversion has always appealed to me with reverbs and delays too. Here's what all is in the ZEDi10FX: https://www.allen-heath.com/media/ZEDFX ... t-List.pdf

oof. that. suh. is a VERBOSE list.

lol. it's actually the ONLY EIGHT models that appeals to me the most with the Dual FX? but yeah. i've never really wanted to deal with tanks either, but this thing isssss tiny and DOES sound goooood. when there's no interference.

ordered from Erica! they usually have stuff direct a month or two before in stores i think. and. you know. me and impatience? DAMN good friends.

also, ordered a CV.OCD. i do love the Shuttle Control, but i don't always use the Deluge for sequencing, and that's 12 hp more space so.....

Nice! CV OCD is something I've been curious about for a while. Ultimately, what I want out of midi is to be able to play plain old midi song files (like the ones loaded into old angelfire and geocities pages) with my own synth voices and drums. So far the only piece of gear I've been able to get to do this was a Roland Fantom XR.

huh. i was out from my shop (where i ship stuff) and tracking says USPS delivered my Pulp Logic 1u tuner and FedEx delivered my Coherence annnnnnd.... they are nowhere to be found. the Coherence says that B. Humphrey signed for it so. looks like.... they let some rando person sign for my stuff and take it?

it's weird though. they some time drop stuff at my old house, next door to my shop, some times deliveries end up across the street at the market i'm buds with, i can't find either package anywhere.

USPS and FedEx never come at the same time, so it's odd that both are gone. got a call in to FedEx to see what the furk damn guy.
