Strymon Pedals w/ MIDI

No need to brag about the sound quality of the Timeline and the Deco.
But the control is phenomenal.
Bucket Brigade Delays, Urs Major model, Tape Models, Analog, Digital, FM, etc. etc.

Deco is a true Dual Analog Reel to Reel Tape Flange Pedal with Lush Chorus, etc.
Run this in a feed back loop into the Timeline, do a loop of Tape Flange chords, then go to instrument over dubs with Delay.

To kick on Tape Flange anytime you want you just hold down the B Button.
A Button is analog overdrive which is really quality dirt too.

Check out the MIDI.

Probably the best Delay/Reverb and Tape Flange I’ve ever had.
I’ve automated the Strymon Timeline and it’s also very powerful routed into the XITE-1.
The Tape Flange and Tape Chorus actually taught me how Hendrix got such a great sound in the studio.

And guess what, they both run off of SHARC ADSP-21469W Chips.
I’ve got these running in a feedback loop to each other, and used on an AUX Channel for my Tiny Mixer.

Guitarists I know spend hundreds on custom wooden or plastic pedalboards.
I don’t need hidden power supplies and don’t even need the Pedals by my feet now that I’ve automated them.
But the Aluminum wheel chair ramp for street curbs and doorways was 40 bucks, and when I get old and worthless I’ll have one waiting for me.
I use those solid rubber car wheel stoppers to elevate to the proper angle.
So I got a nice angled board for 60 bucks.
The FX Pedals go on top of my sub under the 4U rack.
Buying the Big Sky MIDI Reverb next.
It’s another excellent sounding modern Reverb.
The sound is so thick you have to use PreDelay or you’ll drown.

I’ve put all of my racked FX, Converters, racks and PA on Craigslist and Reverb.
Sold 2 TC Fireworx for 650, got 400 for the TC Finalizer.
Spacestation v3 sold for 500.
My basement has 2 full QSC PAs and mixers for auditioning gear.

I make sure my Ammo cases are in plain view and when prospective buyers come over they see me cleaning my guns.
Not that I’ll shoot somebody but don’t want shoppers getting any ideas.
The place is packed with a wall of racked hardware and a wall of Speakers.

I love SHARC ADSP-21369 Chips.
My XITE-1 is the best sounding Mixer/Audio-MIDI interface I’ve ever owned.
I’ve heard many other performers using various cards with Tower PCs or laptops and there’s no comparison.

I heard a German Cat was using SHARCs to recreate a Leslie Pedal called Neo Ventilator.
I didn’t want to spend the money as I had trouble with Pedals before and keyboards. They have to be able to accept line level inputs. But guys using Nord Stage and Hammond SK boards were shutting down their Leslie simulator it was so good.
I bought one and it sounded fantastic.
Since then I bought a Strymon Deco, one of a kind and fantastic sound.
Bought the Strymon Timeline and it’s like having Wolfs Matrix, Celmos Tape, RoyTs Bucket Brigade, and dNa’s Prime Time in hardware. The sounds are fantastic.
So now I’ve bought the Strymon Big Sky which is also MIDI Controlled and it’s beyond criticism.
It’s without any artifacts, it’s sound is incredible.

I’m trying get away from lugging PCs around and might be close if the Integra 7 works out.
But I managed to get SHARCs into my hardware only rig. So I won’t be missing any of the FX thanks to Strymon.

But if this doesn’t work out I’ll be taking my A16 Ultra and running these pedals through Z-Link into SpaceF and RoyT Mixer AUXs. I mean I already spent the money and the Big Sky is the end all Reverb.

I can’t say enough about the quality of these Pedals.

If I owned Pulsar cards and an A16 Ultra or non Ultra I’d use the mixers and synths only.
Your basically adding DSP Chips to your card with high quality FX.
