Awful metalz demo but would be interested to hear this in a different context.

Mimiq Doubler ushers in a new era for live guitar doubling. By harnessing every ounce of power from our new proprietary doubler algorithm, Mimiq manages to distill the magic and uniqueness of actual studio-grade double tracking into a compact pedal. Just stomp it and hear your rockin' riffs gain epic leviathan-like strength, and your lead-lines stand out with unprecedented grandeur, as if played by up to four guitarists at once. When it comes to Mimiq, more is definitely more!

The world's first realistic guitar doubling

Lolz @ really really subtle flanger for 130

Would totally give it a bash; I use a super-short delay on my 2nd amp to try and thicken things up and avoid phasing issues. Matey from DFA1979 does something similar with a chrous pedal, that's why his feedback always goes WEE-OO-WEE-OO

Doesn't sound like some amazing brand new effect here though, tbh. Maybe some more extreme settings would with less CHUGGA would give a better example.

Can't you read Doog? It's a "new era" FFS.

Yeah. Wouldn't mind a play around with one of these but not sure I'd be prepared to stump up 130 for the privilege...

the viking said that you can adjust the tightness dial to tell the pedal how many beers your other guitars players inside it have had.

i need a pedal to make me play and sound with LESS beer. not MORE

This German uberdork on YT (who I watch loads of videos by, despite cringing all the time) has just released a demo of it:

German geek's stereo tone with the pedal off is the best sound on that video

Should be called tc micmud

Is this not a short delay pedal with only 1 repeat?

I'm pretty sure there's a tiny bit of delay time modulation on there too (that first video on headphones illustrates it), IT MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE, BEN!

I guess the "innovation" here is about the presentation and parameters rather than it being anything actually new.

130, lol.

Something that does this really well* is the Whammy V with the detune function. It's like a chorus pedal, but without the warble or the oscillations. I love it.




* - I haven't actually listened to the demo, only read the blurb about what they say it does.

I think it'd best off being used run into 2 different distortions and amps (like I do Cool), rather than 'mimiq'ing a distorted sound.

At least you get a slightly different response that way which helps it sound a little closer to more than one guitar.

I see where they're coming from with this, definitely, but it's a poor demo that limits their market impact (even though it's clearly "targeted" from their perspective). Having all the gains turns me off - I'd love to hear how it can thicken up jangly cleans, and at a keener price point I might be interested.

lower gain, BUT only into one amp and only one setting.

Edit: just seen the same video posted

Sounds crap in "mono"... AKA "live"

You can double track for realz in the studio.
