Anyone ever use one of these? I just got one for super cheap, I figured I will get some sort of dirty flanger effect outa it by the looks.
True, but I can make just about anything useful in some way or another. I also have dozens of ways to get that same type of lofi character, even if using my Eventides. It is still considered junk, and some people like and use junk, nothing wrong with that as long as you don't expect it to be anything else.Not all effect units need to have full bandwidth for what you're after. But, I find it still useful on some tracks.
I have to confess AG, my racks contain a lot of crap . I agree about modeling the effect with modern flexible gear. It is not my defacto delay, however some other uses are for pre-delay on outboard verbs that don't have any. This piece of my junk I think will keep till it dies. 98% of the other junk stuff is slated for e-bay so I may obtain a Seb Pre and few other fine pieces.Originally posted by AudioGaff:

Very true Rick. In fact full bandwidth for delays, etc. is usually counterproductive. It just means more frequencies to compete with the original. I'm very often eq'ing the sends to slaps (delays) and chambers (reverbs) in addition to lowering the lo-pass filters on the verbs and delays, and the same with lowering the lo-pass on regeneration. One reason tape delay worked so well was that each successive repeat was darker and thinner than the previous one.Originally posted by Rick Hammang:

I know it well, some of the blame comes from the fact that for a given DVW, they only use one source mixer for input and output. If they leave the input to their sound card unmuted, they double the sound track when dubbing. I solved that poblem....I don't use a DVW .Originally posted by Fruition2k:
Video guys..nice guys but sheesh they didnt think there was anything wrong at first until they heard the Effectron demo!
