I know from the Winter NAMM thread that some of you mother-ILFers jumped on the
pre-order for the Thermae. So...help the "unwashed masses" bathe in your Thermae.
Post here some thoughts/info/clips/vids.

In the mean time.........

I'm loving it. It's super fantastic but be patient with it. It's lovingly weird and a lot to tackle.

Try dirt after it for more synth sounds.

Get a switch topper (Mooer and Sonicake fit but the Sonicake is slightly lower profile) because the tap tempo switch is VERY important.

Try all the manual suggested settings first to get a feel for it.

Faves is a big plus for this one.

Have fun!!!

Currently my "fun" is the vicarious thrill of listening to clips and reading user experiences.
So I appreciate the feedback! Seems like an interesting reservoir of textures and tempos.

I had to babysit most of the day, so I only got to spend a few minutes with it. I heard some interesting warbles with a drum machine. I've got a lot of ideas on what and how to combine it with other devices, but that's going to take a lot of time over the coming weeks.

watched this earlier...



For people wanting a manual time option, you can twist the pot on the Disaster Area micro.clock. It's also helpful if you want a display of your exact tempo.

For $99, it can sync up to 3 devices simultaneously--

Interesting! External time clock does seem like a solution.
For those in a band you might need a long cord so that
the micro clock can reach all the way for the drummer to
control it.

I’m loving the Thermae so far. I thought it might replace my In Limbo but I think they are just different enough to talk myself into keeping both. I love running CBA delay pedals fully wet, they have such a beautiful lofi gritty sound that I can’t get enough of. For anyone interested I recorded some comparative clips of Thermae and In Limbo. Straight delay, modulation and arp modes.

Freaking love mine, it turns everything into gauzy deliciousness. And it sounds great on, like, everything. It also has enough heardoom that you don't even have to attenuate modular level signals going in, which is pretty convenient.

Curious how y'all are using Modulation mode though. I tried it and literally could not make heads or tails of what was happening, and turning the depth/speed knobs didn't really do anything meaningful? Anyone got an example setting I could use?

Also being the dummy I am I completely forgot, despite having owned 2 CB pedals prior, that the Tap/MIDI input does not accept clock/sync signals. I was gonna try to take the MIDI to 1/8" adapter from my 0-coast and add a 1/8"-1/4" adapter, but 99.5% of the time I have a clock going it does not involve MIDI so that doesn't really get me anywhere useful. It seems like by now Joel & team would have made their tap jacks accept sync clock, but I guess not :(

I wish I had taken pics of the modulation settings I came up with before saving the preset so I could share it with you but if you click the mod switch it is possible. It didn't take me super long as I remember. Got a really beautiful mod setting out of it.

I want one something fierce, 500$ is a tough pill to swallow though. I guess if i look at it like its own instrument its not so bad, but im still hesitant for some reason

Because you think half a grand is a bunch of money to pay for a modulated delay?

It definitely is.

Of course control is something that adds value.
Which is why rack delays from the days of yore still
fetch high prices. They offer levels and layers of
tweakability that a lot of pedals just don't.

And with the conversion of US to Canadian dollars, the
Thermae is something I'm not likely ever to afford.
I have a super hard time saving up enough for such a big splash,
all-at-once purchase, even if over a stretch of years I have
definitely spent that much on delays/glitchers/stutter/loopers.

Yep. Similar at Moog Audio.

Which is why I want to hear clips and read descriptions!
That's about as close as I'm ever going to get to this pedal.
