Z-Link w/ Strymon Pedals

Post by dawman » Sun Oct 21, 2018 10:43 am

My latest excuse to lug around more gear.
But I wouldn’t do it if it didn’t have a noticeable difference.
This does sound better than plug ins and better than my TC Fireworx

dNa FX w/ Pitch Shifting on AUX 1
Strymon Deco Tape Flange/Tape Chorus AUX 2
Strymon Timeline Delay AUX 3
Strymon Big Sky Reverb AUX 4

The A16 Ultras Analog I/O jacks with these Pedals have no noise what so ever.
Even with the Deco at highest levels the Tape Flange is so quiet I have to add extra drive from the Pedal for added “noise”, which just accentuates more harmonics.

Happy Camper

...and that A16 gives you a lot of room to grow back into a 12u rack ;)

To keep playing I have to.
I’m thinking 3 x 4Us.
A Code 8 comes out at good gigs.
If it’s a so-so paying gig they get 2 x 4Us with Omnisphere and Zebra2 HZ.
It’s dificult though going back to softies after hearing and playing the Code 8.

Added Mobious because these pedals sound so damn good.

That pedal train looks well handy. Looks like Christmas came early for you Jim, a very cool setup there :)

I’m only using dNa FX Rack Pitch Shifter, SpaceF MIDI Devices and a custom RoyT Mixer.

Time to try 96k.
I’m seeking out Dante as I write this.

Jimmy, I was just checking for updates to an iPad editor I am using for the Andromeda, and saw that the same guy had created some editors for all 3 Strymon boxes you have. https://www.audiobombs.com/items/575/ed ... us-pedals-

These run from an app called TB Midi Stuff, http://www.thiburce.com/TBStuff/?page_id=664 which is quite an interesting iOS editor and was only a few £ so I thought it was worth getting. Anyway thought you might find those other editors of interest. :)

Andromeda, they don’t make synths like that anymore.

Thanks chief.
I got an iPad I was thinking of getting into some of the apps for MIDI, etc.
I automate these pretty well already but the Looper is a PITA trying to use with a Keyboard.
I’ve automated that but an iPad would be like a seperate zone that wouldn’t interfere with note on/offs.

I’m on it.

Yes, hopefully those TBMS editors will be a useful addition, and the app is cheap so figured it was worth mentioning.

Re the Strymon effects, I was looking at a few nice comparison videos and other posts from various forums the other day between the Strymon Timeline and the Electo Harmonic Memoryman Deluxe. The basic conclusion seemed to be that they sounded so close one couldnt really tell much difference, but the Timeline can do so much more as well. So yes I might look out for one sometime myself. The El Capistan sounded great as well.

The Andromeda, yes its certainly one of a kind. It's just a shame that it was dropped soon after Numark bought out Alesis, and the biggest problem is the lack of certain spares if needed. It's not without its issues but then what isn't.

I was originally thinking of getting an SE Code 8 at the time, but then this Andy came up for a reasonable price so I nabbed it. Anyway, I came across this funny but quite cool Andromeda demo yesterday which I somehow missed before. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaZkbs9T41A
