The modulation speed can be ramped up or down, with separate speeds for the bass and treble frequencies, to simulate the sound of a rotating bass speaker and a rotating horn. The relay will use a little more power, about 50% more, so a battery will not last quite as long. A power supply is probably a good idea. Jared Scharff, guitarist in the SNL band, got some of our pedals about 2007, and was still using them on the show when he sent me a note in 2011: I never liked chorus pedals. In fact, hated them untill I played the AnalogMan chorus.
Phase Shifter (Phaser) Digitech Hyper Phase effects pedal A Phase Shifter creates a complex frequency response containing many regularly-spaced «notches» in an incoming signal by combining it with a copy of itself out of phase, and shifting the phase relationship cyclically. But it can add some noise if you move the sliders. Ric Fierabracci has been using our Boss DD6/hicut on his bass for a few years now with Frank Gambale, Chick Corea, Bill Evans, etc. ÜberMod is more complicated than the earlier Valhalla DSP plugins, and I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what it can do. So, go check it out! Effects that synthesize intervals besides octaves are referred to as harmonizers or pitch shifters. All the fake shrill gain has been replaced with a very smooth dynamic harmonically rich distortion.
The BA662A VCA Chip that the CS-2 uses is held in high regard. This mod on the DD-6 sounds a little better than the same mod on the DD-5, very smooth. But this is the story of a man as much as a company, so we’ll start by turning our clock back to a time long before the birth of the hi-tech music.
