    I have a DMB Whiskey Bender on my board and I really like being able to dial the clean signal level in and out of the fuzzy overdrive sound. The band I'm in mainly does jangle and twang so full-on Fuzz is harder to utilize.

    Had that pedal, and a few other DMB offerings.
    If I recall there was a clean blend on all of the
    overdrives I tried. :huh

    Big Whiskey Bender love in my house...I particularly like feeding it with a Midfi Electronics Overdrive for double chewy happiness....

    I'm currently running with a global clean channel, split using a Suhr buffer right after the guitar. The clean channel is treated with a Lexicon MPX-G2 for a little EQ, and optionally compression, delay, and verb.

    It's interesting, for sure. If I was gigging regularly, I'm not sure I would use this in a live situation (although I have) but in the studio, it''s awesome to be able to play with absolutely filthy fuzzes, but blend in enough clean to make chords work, and to help define the attacks on single note stuff. When I get the blend just right it feels articulate, but the clean sound is not too noticeable until you take it away.

    I totally admit that this is a little on the fiddly side, but when it works, it's great.

    Flam the flims! Flee the funnel!

    Well, I took a break from re-watching "The Killing" cause the @basicaudio Duplex was just staring me down and I hadn't said hi to her for awhile, so I haz a unexpected New Years Day track to drop. Duplex is juicy as hell and those diads pound most awesomely.

    And here's my lonely, bonely, sicko xmas wankery.

    @Maggot! The G-Brick LIVES!

    Really enjoyed your Duplex track biffoz! What are you using to create the glitchy pitchy material?

    ..... because i was bi-coastal for a good bit of years, maybe? we let go of our house/studio in pasadena at the end of 2010 (or 2011, maybe? = blurry), though.

    agree!
    solo duplex voice sounds really bassoony/buzzaroundish, there.

    Thanks much guys! Duplex is brighter on the spectrum and my tone's rolled all the way down, or close to that mostly. It's taking me some time to get used to all the variations with the 2 gains on Duplex as well as the Fat knob. All neck pickup this time and going through a TC Spark, with no "mid/low" toggle action, for just a little extra sizzle and bottom end. And of course, there's the Bone switched on in 2 spots.

    @Dandolin: Re: Glitchies: There's the usual Charlie Foxtrot and "BitQuest/Ricochet-in-a-ChillSwitch" stuff, but the runaway delay stuff is my Boss DD500 on a 2-sec high-regen delay, set up to sweep input into it with ExPed, as well as moderate regen; the usual "tap" switch is reprogrammed to divide delay time x4 (500ms), so when it starts running away, I'm hitting that switch, with varying results. Pretty crude, cause I haven't worked on the patch much, but it's pretty fun and I think can be fine tuned a bit more.

    Is the Duplex related to the Double Beat?

    Not surprised to hear you were using 3 glitch sources--nice one with the DD500 programming! I may get to play around with a Bitquest soon--I will be sure to check for boomerangs....

    Yes: based on the Ibanez Double Beat. Maybe John can add some details.

    Yes, Double Beat skeleton.
    I broke the gain into two
    separate places/knobs.
    The Original gain knob does
    not clean up much BUT does
    bring in some nice high end
    harmonics. I added a second
    gain knob which clean up the
    circuit a lot. The Fat knob brings
    in low end and thickens up the
    attack and response. Bringing
    down the Fat knob tightens up
    the response and clears up the
    low end for more articulation.
    Lots of sustain and sing.

    Double Beat was already one of my favorites.

    :beer

    Seems like I'm adding Basic Audio fuzzes to my stable, but this list just isn't getting any shorter. :confused

    Ah well, on to the list with it; after the inimitable Orpheum....

    :phones
