Is this just as good as the original Boss Slow Gear?

Would this be a good choice for an auto swell? Used to own a Line 6 DL4 and the auto swell was my favorite setting. It's what I miss the most about it. Does the Crescendo match up?

Is this is a durable power supply?

I like the size of this power supply, but don't see a lot of people using it. Would love to hear from some folks that have used one for a while.

    I had one and found it durable but noisy. The MXR Iso Brick, however, is both durable and basically noiseless.

    This is my first power supply and is still on my board today after 4-5 years. Its been great other than for my Strymon pedals. I’ve had to get an Ojai to power my Strymons but everything else has worked just fine with this. I definitely would recommend this for analog and even (most) digital pedals. It has served me well.

    I would, because I love Walrus, but I have no need for compression.

    I had a Deep Six, sold it and got a Bloom, and I just went back to the Deep Six V.3 Because the Deep Six is my favorite compression

Strymon Timeline

Anyone know how to setup a delay for doing solos? I mainly play Worship/Praise. And how to setup a dotted 8 delay. Thanks for the help in advance

    Hi Anthony, If you just want a standard clean dotted 8th delay, use the DIGITAL algorithm. Turn GRIT and FILTER all the way off, and in the PARAMS menu, set the TAPDIV parameter to "dotted." Set the SMEAR parameter to off, and turn RPTDYN off as well. This will give you a clean dotted 8th note delay. Thanks :)

Good first delay pedal?

I'm thinking of getting a Flashback 2 as my first delay pedal. It appears versatile and it has multiple delay types so I'm able to see what I actually like. Is this a good way of thinking?

    Yeah I think you’re right on. I used to play one of these for a while. I would have kept it if I could have saved presets and controlled changes via midi. Great sounding delay though with tons to explore!
  • TC Electronic

    Absolutely. All the basic delay types are covered by the default presets so you can quickly and easily find your flavor - perfect for first-timers! And once you've got the hang of things there's endless tweaking fun to be had in the TonePrint Editor, if that's your thing!

Should the Dry knob make noise in the signal while turning it?

Does anyone one else’s @origineffects Cali76 CD dry knob make a lot of noise when turning it? Sounds like a scratchy pot, but for some reason I thought that’s typical of some knobs like those... there’s no noise when playing. It’s only during turning the knob.

    Mine doesn't. Could be a dirty/bad pot?

    Hey. Some of our controls carry DC on the pot which can make a scratchy sound when turned. If the pot seems to be functioning correctly apart from that noise when turned, then I would assume that there is no fault.

What do you love about the Strat?

Tell us, what makes the Stratocaster stand out amongst the rest?

    A classic, what I love is how many amazing songs were recorded on this guitar and the fact that you can recognize the sound of it so easily.

    It’s a one of a kind musical icon. There’s nothing like it! And so versatile. I hope to always have one, at least borrowable nearby if I can’t own it :)

    The unique sound is so identifiable, but for me personally, cranking out some SRV sounds on my neck pup is where the love for my Strat comes from .. I can’t get that sound anywhere else.
  • Nicholas Kirk

    It's all about the sound. It's the most unique sounding electric guitar IMO. Instantly recognizable. Most electric guitars sound like, well, electric guitars- but a Stratocaster sounds like a Stratocaster. God bless you, Leo Fender.

    Love the crisp tone when it is on the bridge pickup!

Why the Lightspeed?

What is it about the lightspeed that made you choose it for your rig?

    It's the best 1st stage drive I've ever tried. I got it after I was super disapointed with the morning glory. Needless to say...it's always on and it's never leaving my board. It's super attack responsive and plays easily. Sounds great with any amp.

The Cali in your setup.

How do you use the Cali most in your rig? What other pedals do you play along side it?

    Always on, first in the chain, compression as smooth and clean as it gets. My clean tone is this + JHS Prestige, then my money drive tone is Cali + Prince of Tone.

    In front of my Noble preamp for my bass rig. Absolutely game changing. I barely know it’s on but I can hear the sustain and life it brought when I turn it back off.
