M O O D™ is a two channel granular micro-looper / delay. Designed to be playful and immediate, it is a study of interaction. M O O D™ is internally collaborative, allowing audio to freely pass back and forth between its two sides, evolving and transforming over time. Drolo FX is behind the loop channel, a collection of always-listening micro-loopers, and Old Blood Noise Endeavors offer us the wet channel, a suite of live spatial effects. We have three different options for how the channels are internally routed. Run a time-stretched loop through a cloud of delay taps, re-record it and carry on. Overdub, freeze, dissolve, smear. The device’s heart is the clock control, which slows or accelerates both sides simultaneously in harmonized steps. Instantly turn a loop into rolling chirps, or divide a reverb down into atmospheric noise. And naturally, we have full MIDI, dip-switch, and preset implementation.
The dipswitches are similar to the other pedals, but there’s a new one for the ramping wave shape (triangle or square wave). You’ll notice the ramp knob is now on the top middle position (shared with mix).
What’s interesting with MOOD is that some knobs scroll through small steps (not linear), the most obvious one is the clock control. But there also algorithms on the OBNE and Drolo sides that behave like that, which makes it even more interesting to experiment with ramping those parameters.
