145 - Realtime FM FX with old delays        

From: The Futility Engineer
Email: mager@incom.net
Date: 17-Dec-99


If you have an old delay or flanger around, check to see if it has a modulation input. My Delta Labs effectron II has a 'control' input. This is supposed to be where you plug in your foot pedal or encelope follower. You can also plug in your CD player output or raw waveform from a modular or patchable synth. Now you everything you run through the Delay/flanger will be frequency modulated at audio rate. This sounds really nice for crunchy snares. After I discovered this trick I liked it so much I modified a Boss 1/2 rack delay for the same effect (it's an RPD-10, look for it at a pawn shop with the guitar FX.) The trick is to put in a jack that leads to the wiper lead on the pot for delay time. Should work for other delays or flangers with sweepable delay times. Of course you have to feel comfortable modding your gear before you try this since I take know responsibility. Have fun!
