Re: Retraction and apology to LD and Vox (Re: Vox Tonelab for looping)
I can get it to oscillate, pitch shift, spit out random crap....But i have
entire board of analog and digital delays that do all that stuff(Ibanez
DDL10 tweaked, diigtech PDS20/20 tweaked, PSK analog delay, boss DM-2,
Ibanez DE7, and soon a modded DD-3 and PB&J), so I use it as a looper and a
special effects/traditional delay pedal.
Spend a hour with it if you can, 20 minutes getting used to the sounds, and
then start to mess with it with a knowledge of it's limitations(or what
at that point think the limitations are). It is a very deep pedal.
