My Mood should be here Monday. Was supposed to be yesterday, but UPS screwed that up.
you mean modulation from some other pedal, or are you setting the mood up somehow to modulate in a way?me, too, but i also enjoy using the delay in very un-pristine modes, ie: quite low clock settings, w/some modulation.
At first I didn't use it much except when I was explicitly messing around with the MOOD's micro-looper function, but over time I find myself using it more and more on its own. It does sound good. The El Cap or Volante are my main delays depending on the board, but the Mood is nice for more of a pristine traditional sounding digital delay (higher clock times), or a dreamy LoFi delay (lower clock times), to a nightmarish bitcrush effect (very low clock times). It's a great complement to my tape delays.Anyone using this as their main delay pedal?
I'm thinking the Tonal Recall or Thermae would work better, but wondered.
Wow. So uh. I've only played this pedal a couple hours. I've been completely lost in it. I was really worried about it being this novelty noise maker thing. I've found some very musical things in here. Things that make me thing a bit differently. It's achieved what I was hoping it would do.
It does make me want a Stammen, though...
Not at all. I'm not sure where you heard this, but it doesn't alter my tone any more than adding another non-buffered pedal in the chain, meaning that I can't hear any difference between plugging straight into my amp, an plugging in with just the Mood.I am strongly considering buying a Mood. I have a WDW rig and my thought was to place the Mood in the effects loop of my guitar amp (already have delay and reverb on the wet side) so it effects my dry signal and since time effects seem to be better in the effects loop. I read a review that the pedal can alter your tone when bypassed - has anyone experienced this? This is my biggest concern... thanks
Great - thanks. Now my only issue is waiting for them to become availableNot at all. I'm not sure where you heard this, but it doesn't alter my tone any more than adding another non-buffered pedal in the chain, meaning that I can't hear any difference between plugging straight into my amp, an plugging in with just the Mood.
For what it's worth, I've had this pedal a few months and it's still at the top for being the one pedal I wouldn't swap out for something else if I had to. If you've read this thread and like what you've heard in the samples, you will likely love this pedal.
I bought a Digitakt when it first came out. Unfortunately mine died on me so was returned. I love the Elektron stuff (I have an AR2, A4, and an MD). Have been dying to pick up a Digitone since it came out, but waiting to see if they implement a song mode. I want to pair a Digitone and a Mood.I have been wandering wild in the fields of synthesis, far from my guitars. Whilst there, I came upon this new and brilliant video showing how to control a MOOD with MIDI, in this case, via an Elektron Digitakt. I've had my Digitakt about a month, and have come to love it, but now that I know that I can use it in interesting ways with MOOD -- and Blooper! -- I am so excite. I just wish I understood it a little better.
I can't believe I missed that Loopop video. His channel is hugely valuable, and if you do any synth/MIDI stuff, it is highly recommended.
I have and plan to keep both. When MOOD was first being released I suspected it might be similar to CT5 and I suppose in some ways it is. They both can manipulate and loop short sections of audio and do some pitch shifting and reverse... I experience the MOOD as being a little more smeary overall. I think I've compared it to a buddha box before whereas I find the CT5 a little more glitchy in some ways... (although as a drone machine the MOOD has about a 5 minute lifespan).MOOD users!
Would you consider relevant to keep a CT5 pedal when getting a MOOD? Are they too similar or there are enough differences between them to merit a place for both in a experimental/Ambiental music Pedalboard?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated really
