A few months back we mentioned Godlyke would be releasing their own effects pedals under the Totally Wicked Audio brand. That time has come, and what we'll soon have access to will surely quench your pedal junky needs. The first model to hit the streets will be the LD-01 Little Dipper/vocal formant filter, which will be shipping in late June. What exactly is a vocal formant filter you say? Hmmm, well I had a chance to play with one at NAMM last Winter. Imagine your auto wah/envelope filter, only much more expressive, organic sounding, with crystal clear tone, and human-like qualities. The Little Dipper also has the ability to hit the extreme and can create some knarly spaced-out sounds. This is all I can say from a quick demo of it, but that little bit of time spent with it showed me a revolution in envelope filters. Below is some more info on the TWA brand from our good friends at Godlyke. Keep your eyes peeled kids, Analog War Cry might just be demoing one here shortly.
Godlyke, Inc. is proud to announce the launch of our new line of boutique effect pedals, Totally Wicked Audio (TWA). Consisting of dedicated analog stompboxes, TWA line features unique and esoteric effect types that will help set the discerning player apart from the masses. All TWA models are 100% made in the USA using the highest quality components and offer all the features and construction quality expected from a high-end analog device.
The flagship model of the TWA brand, the LD-01 Little Dipper will be released during the 2nd quarter of 2009.
The Little Dipper is an envelope-controlled vocal formant filter based on a classic 70's circuit. It's dual filters react to playing dynamics, crreating peeks and notches that simulate the vowel sounds of human speech. The Little Dipper allows the user to emulate talk boxes, auto-wahs, filters, and phase shifters, as well as creating strikingly vocal wah-sounds. A built-in fuzz circuit emphasizes harmonics for a more dramatic effect while dry blend and noise-gate trim pots offer a full-frequency response with ultra-low noise operation.
The Little Dipper features a 16-gauge bent steel chassis with heavy-duty powder coating and eye-catching LED display. The Little Dipper also features mechanical true-bypass switching and comes with a three-year manufacturer's warranty.
