i'm sure he's got a zoom multifx rack unit, rfx series iirc. at least at one time...

here's clearly got some sort of loopers, eg fx94.

Topic: Is feedback bad for your mixer?
Replies: 11

so speaker outputs are held at fixed current? This would explain why powered signals are dangerous to electronics. speaker impedance is typically quite low, on the order of 80 ohms or less. Input impedance for a mixer, on the other hand, is on the order of megaohms. V=IR -> I=V/R, so if you want to ...

The myth of feedback fucking up mixers is bull shit. Only under certain conditions are you going to hurt anything. Conditions like, using an old tube mixer, using speaker outputs from a powered mixer, using the headphone output from certain mixers (some require a load from headphones, if not presen...

this old chestnut. some people just don't like laptops for noise. I've seen wiese twice and he floored me both times. I also saw carlos giffoni play a laptop set a few years back, though i believe he's mainly all analog these days. i use a laptop for noise. It's very difficult. it doesn't make anyth...

To me bitcrushing is different than what this thing does.. bit crushing would be more like resampling at different bitdepths like 8 instead of 16. bitcrush seems to colloquially refer to both bitcrushing and sample rate reduction (eg in the bugbrand description where sample and hold produces a 'bit...

I don't know of any hardware that is designed to do this out of the box but a modular system with a sample and hold module could probably be forced to do it assuming it had a high frequency clock. i think this is what a bug crusher does. this is equivalent to sample rate reduction as well, so any '...

aside from the delay+pitch shift solution, your only option is basically record+variable speed playback, which can be done with a tape player or on a computer. The computer would be a little cooler since you can start reducing the pitch immediately, or gradually get out of sync, etc.

probably the easiest thing to do if you want to literally slow down a signal (reducing pitch) is to get some kind of playback device with variable playback speed, record at fast speed and playback at slow. most tape players won't do this unless you mod them. many loop pedals will do this. it's reall...

it's kind of funny that a pitch shifter should remove dynamics. Are you using 'dynamics' to refer to changes in volume? cuz in general, distortions should be the thing that would remove changes in volume (being essentially clipping devices), whereas stuff like chorus or pitch shifting should be very...

how easy is it to do and how can i learn how to do it? simple circuit bending can be as easy as putting a wire between two components on a circuit board. For this you just need some way of finding bends, eg wires with alligator clip connectors, and a soldering iron. Building DIY effects can be rath...

Any of those pedals with 2 outs will allow you to make an independent feedback loop by connecting one output back into the input (with whatever else you like in between) and the second output going into a mixer channel. by doing this how would i have a signal source going into the input?(if its sim...
