I had a bit of a surprise today. I went into my current DAW – Universal Audio’s LUNA – to do something so basic, I took it for granted. Only it wasn’t there …Continue reading “Today I Learned: UAD’s LUNA Doesn’t Natively Support Flipping The Phase Of A Recorded Track”
When it comes to pedal manufacturers, I’m a huge fan of Mad Professor pedals. I’ve owned pretty much all of their older (pre-Simple) drive pedals over the years, and I’ve probably logged more hours playing these pedals than any other brands’.
So I was floored when I recently read that the Golden Cello is actually an Amber Drive with added delay (a la the Bluebird Overdrive). How did I miss that?!? But it’s true.
The reason I hadn’t noticed this before? I’ve always used my Golden Cello with the delay turned up a bit (it’s endless hours of fun with an ebow), and it’s an older delay design that doesn’t feature a dry signal blend. ie, the delay colours the sound quite a bit.
Turn the delay off, and hey presto: the two pedals are identical.
So if you’ve always been curious about the Amber Overdrive, but found the second hand prices too high, keep an eye out for a Golden Cello. In my experience, the Golden Cello often goes for rock-bottom prices.
I guess I’m not the only one who didn’t know about this!
Today, I learned that my Analogman King of Tone shipped from the factory with the top-mounted toggle switch disabled.
Fortunately, it’s an easy thing to sort out, and well-worth doing so.Continue reading “TIL: The Analogman King of Tone With The Top-Mounted Toggle Switch”
