EAR AD4096 BBD upgrade demo

Post by HorseyBoy » Fri Aug 05, 2016 5:52 am

For all you bucket delay freaks (both of you), here's a quick demo of a V1 Endangered Audio Research AD4096 delay modded with the BBD upgrade kit for extra delay time. Still had plenty of room left on the dial, too. Recorded directly into an iPad sitting on a chair. Guitar is Harvester #042, amp is a Bandmaster 5E7 clone, fuzz pedal is a Basic Audio Fuzz Mutant, wah is a Castledine. Nothing fancy, just trying to leave some space to give a good representation of the sound and the repeats. About halfway through the track (after the fuzz goes off but the wah is still on) the 4096 is switched to Infinity Mode for extra oscillating goodness.
Pedal was set like this:

^ Thanks, inner. It's a really, really nice delay. And with the longer repeats it almost works like a looper in Infinity Mode. Lotsa fun.

Sounded great. It's a bit darker than expected but nice and soup-y.

^ Thanks, guys. Meant to add, if there's anything specific anyone wants to hear from the upgraded 4096 I'm happy to give it a whirl.

I have been looking at the EAR delay after hearing Disco Doom opening for Built to Spill. I really love the tone you can get out of those. Nice demo!

V2

FEATURES
Note: Starred features are experimental and subject to change

Knobs:
Time - Up to 800ms of delay time
Mix - Fades between wet and dry signals
Loop - Gain of the signal exiting the pedal through the loop. The loop allows you to place effects inside of the delay loop. For example - insert a pitch shifter and you now have a pitch-shifting delay.
Depth - the amount of feedback in the delay line
Voice - fades from 100% "Delay" voice to 100% "Echo" voice.
Sonics* - separate delay voice that adds even more harmonic glitter clouds to your delay through a secret process.

Rocker Switches:
Loop - Turns the loop on or off.
Filter* - Applies a high-pass filter to the signal as it enters the delay loop (not within the delay loop). Perfect for cutting out the kick of a drum machine. Dry signal is unaffected by the filter.
Infinity - Turns sound-on-sound infinitely sustaining delay mode on or off.
Solo - Solos the Sonics voice (i.e., cuts out the Delay/Echo voice).

Footswitches:
Bypass - Buffered bypass switch. The switch is buffered to allow delay tails and to prevent the dreaded true-bypass clicking. The switch is also softer than a true-bypass switch and easier to engage/disengage.
Expand - Soft switch that increases Depth to 100% or to the level set by the Depth Expression pedal (see DIP switch below).

Jacks:
Input - Audio in
Output - Audio out
Mod Input - Modulates Time control for chorus/vibrato/phasing-type effects (modulation companion pedal coming soon)
Tempo Input - Accepts external tap-tempo and preset-recall control (tap tempo pedal coming soon)
Time Expression Pedal Input - control time remotely
Depth Expression Pedal Input - control depth remotely
Loop Out - delay loop out to external effects pedals
Loop In - delay loop in from external effects pedals

DIP Switches:
Input - Instrument/Line Level
Expand - Latching/Momentary
CV* - Interrupting/Mixing
Wet Only - Mix/Wet Only
Tails - On/Off

Light:
Rectangular incandescent-looking white light that indicates on/off state as well as blinking the delay tempo
