I bought a DOD FX7 at a yard sale for $5. I can understand why it was so maligned back in the '90s, because every setting sounds like every record released in 1987... which is awesome, frankly.

Also, this showed up, which I'm currently playing through said DOD into a Carr Rambler, which must be violating some kind of TGP statute.

For 5$ everything is worthy even if it sounds like shit. :thumb:

I'm leaning towards the 720 again cuz I'm used to it and it has 1/2 speed and reverse functions, but if there's anything else I should consider I'm all ears.


I have this Ammoon looper which I understand is sort of a rip-off of the 720: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ammoon- ... 23126.html

Stereo in/out, half-speed and reverse + I really like the adjustable fade-out option when you stop a loop.

I've had no issues with it, though my steez is more ambient keyb noodle-improvisation rather than mapping out song parts.

And if you're willing to go the cheapie pedal route, I'm an even bigger fan of this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Rowin-T ... 41301.html

Comes branded as Rowin/Donner/and a few others. This one has a stepped speed control with more speed-up/slow-down settings.

Both of these are dual channel isolated stereo in/out, so you can actually run separate things through each of the channels, too.

Have had a pitch fork for years, and don't think I've ever realized you can save a preset glissando rate :facepalm:

:lol: basically. I haven't used it in a long time, and pulled it out to see if it was time to flip. Was perusing the manual and noticed that bit about being able to save the rate. Then spent the next hour or so alternating between stepping on the pitchfork with one foot and the ps6 with the other. Manual glitch and busted tape player sounds galore.

You got me there :idk: Those things are nuts. Would probably require multiple effects, and still not be right, hah.

Is it possible to rehouse a Whammy to get rid of the treadle, and make it a lot smaller and lighter? I would love to use it as a condensed tabletop unit with a slider or a knob instead of the treadle.

Whammy Ricochet? The Drop seems likely to be limited in comparison, so I would guess Ricochet first.

Or get an EvenMidi Pitchy to get your Whammy (or Eventide pedal with pitch algorithms) off the table, but you probably aren’t looking for remote cable runs. https://www.evenmidi.com/midi-controllers/3-pitchy.html

Anyone have cool post metal synth recommendations? Music or gear really. I know I’m going to pick up a Digitakt for samples and field recording/manipulation, but I’m not sure what else to look at. I’ve owned a couple of Microbrutes, but currently I’ve got nothing. Mostly looking for massive bass and noisy shit. Digital for polyphony and pads would be cool.

Feel like so many post metal bands are using Moog for their synth sounds. Cult of Luna, Russian Circles, Pg. Lost.

Isis used some Roland stuff. Maybe SH09 or SH02. Spacelordmother will correct this I’m sure.

Neurosis uses a lot of samples and his many stage facing stuff is just MIDI controllers and I know there’s a laptop involved but I can’t find a good rundown. But laptop is gonna he clutch for samples AND polyphony.

I think if I went this route I’d be using my laptop/iPad and midi controllers. Which is still a possibility if we write fewer guitar centric songs.
