The second preset uses an octave down and an octave up shift with the 7th time pattern, which is a root-based delay. Therefore the repeated pattern has the note you play at the displayed delay time followed by an octave down on the left, an octave down on the right, and another octave down on the left. more ...

The third preset uses two octaves up for both voicings with the dynamic repeats mode. This produces ominous high pitched tones when playing single notes. Playing chords adds an element of whistling wind to the sound. Use palm muting to control the level of the effect - the more you mute your strings, the louder the effect becomes. more ...

This clip uses a lot of distortion before the TimeBender delay pedal. The TimeBender is setup to use an analog delay mode, slightly raised tone, some mod and repeats at about 60% and the mix fairly low at about 40%. The voicing is 8H U with time pattern 10 and a delay of 625 ms, which gives 3 taps on the left with octave up pitch shift and 3 taps on the right with no pitch shift. more ...

AC006: Swell Effect

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This clip uses the Dynamic Repeats mode to sustain an octave up swell after each note. The dynamic modes reduce (i.e. duck) the level of the delayed signal when you are playing so that the delayed signal is only really heard in between notes, or when you stop playing, at which point the delayed sound swells in. more ...

This clip uses the 10th time pattern with voicing set to a 3rd and 6th down to produce diatonic arpeggios in the key of E. This clip was recorded directly out of the TimeBender with a Les Paul guitar used for input. more ...

AC013: Dynamic Ambience

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This clip uses the dynamic digital mode with the 6th time pattern and the voicing set to unison and an octave up. This combination produces a nice ambient background sound for you that doesn't get in the way since the dynamic digital mode only allows the level of the delayed signal to rise when you are not playing. This clip was recorded directly out of the TimeBender with a Les Paul guitar used for input. more ...

This clip uses the variable speed tape mode with repeats set quite high to replicate the introduction to "Standing in the Rain" as made famous by the James Gang. The expression pedal is used to obtain the "out of control" sound near the end. more ...

While we are not affiliated with Sweetwater in any way, we feel these demos are very good and will help end users get more out of the timebender, so here they are: more ...
