Intensive Care Audio -Fideleater Modulation Guitar Pedal, handmade in the UK
Intensive Care Audio -Fideleater
What FIDELEATER is, and what is it used for:
The FIDELEATER is a lo-fi chorus/vibrato/delay pedal for the treatment of Bland Guitar Syndrome and Excessive Aural Dryness. Used regularly it can provide effective relief from these, and other music and instrumentation related conditions.
The FIDELEATER features 6 controls, there are therefore a range of available remedies.
WAVE FUNCTION: An 8 position rotary switch allows you to select 1 of 8 available LFO waveforms. From left to right these are; Random Slopes, Random Steps, Sweep, Sine, Triangle, Square, Ramp Down, Ramp Up. These waveforms are brought to you by the STOMPLFO courtesy of Electric Druid.
DEPTH: Sets the depth of the LFO. In certain settings, having the depth control above 12 o’clock can cause serious glitching, which is fun obviously.
FREQ: Sets the frequency (speed) of the LFO CHORUS/VIBRATO: Sets the amount of dry signal which is mixed in. With the control fully CCW the pedal operates as a chorus. Turning this control CW gradually removes the dry signal and you are left with just the modulated signal, creating a vibrato effect.
EXPAND: The expand switch opens a feedback path within the circuit and fills your sound with lovely warbling goodness.
UNTIE: The untie switch pulls the pin out of the grenade and walks away. It extends the delay time so that the pedal operates something more like a delay than a chorus. The modulation is intensified because of this and it’s another world a glitchy digital weirdness.
