Korg Volca FM 2: The Sequel

The FM has had an all-round upgrade similar to the Volca Sample. It's gone from an original polyphony of 3 to 6, gained velocity sensitivity (when played with a controller keyboard), has doubled its presets from 32 to 64, now has a reverb effect that, I think, has parameters that can be controlled, ...

Re: Sneak peak new paranormal Fat Telemasters

If these were full-on Cabronitas but on a Jazzmaster body, then I'd be in. In fact, literally this but with a Jazzmaster shaped body:

Re: Vintage Guitar Co. offers improved "Jag"?

I've seen these around online and wondered what the point of them is when priced above a Squier. I also can't really see how and where this improves significantly on the design? The break angle stuff was improved on years ago with those models that moved the tailpiece up the body to just behind the ...

Re: Boss RE-2 Space Echo (and RE-202!)

Honestly think it looks awesome but the DL4 MII is only £40 more than the RE2. Was holding off but deffo gonna sell my Keeley Caverns v2 and looper and get the DL4 now The DL4 is a modern classic, too, so the pricing looks totally out of whack when you compare the two. The DL4 MK2 is a pretty strai...

Re: Pedal power update

And from what I can see online, that case setup is all over the place right now, probably with exactly the same level of quality control. Sometimes it feels like a golden age for gear, but the proliferation of all this stuff means you still have to go digging for the real gems. Whereas in ye olde da...

Re: Pedal power update

Haha, yeah, it's really not something you want to get wrong. The only reverse polarity pedals I currently have are the POG and my Moogerfooger FreqBox, and I'm not taking any risks with them.

Re: Pedal power update

I've used polarity reversal converters on daisy chains and they've worked fine? If you need to mix and match anything that needs full isolation, you can still use the two independent outputs to do that if you need to. The thing that I've wondered about some of these new cheaper power supplies is how...

Re: soniccake Rude Mouse

I'd like to see a massive shoot out between every Rat clone you could reasonably get your hands on, but each one played with a completely different guitar and through a completely different amp for the most subjective and pointless demo video ever made.

Re: New Behringer synths

So people asked Behringer if they could knock up a power bank/mixer combo for all their mini synths and just pooped this out.

Apparently just a mockup so far but that's kind of cool if they actually do it (also has reverb!).

Re: New Behringer synths

One of the reasons I like the Volcas was the way that they just kind of decided "it's just going to be a box with a faceplate." and I thought that was basically as much actual thought they'd put into them. Seeing these, with the slope down to the key bed and the almost haphazard layout of ...

Re: Pedal power update

In fact, looking at the first one I posted that is identical to the £58 Thomann one, the Fame one does actually say on it that the 9v connections are isolated from the A+B variable connections, so that would suggest a common ground, wouldn't it? I have a multimeter somewhere but my pedalboard is cur...

Re: Pedal power update

Yeah, pretty sure that £58 one is a rehoused version of the one I have. The base unit is, I think, originally released as a Palmer for about £80, then it popped up under a bunch of names on eBay for £30 or so, and I eventually got the Fame badged one from DV247. There was a smaller model released ye...

A shrunk down Jupiter for $99 that will play ball with my volcas is an autobuy.
