A very crazy delay for the connoisseur
This is definitely the craziest analog delay pedal that i I have ever played.
Now, I also own the Aqua Puss amd Echo Puss, since the Echo Puss is basically an improved Aqua Puss (or at least that is what I understand) the echo puss has the modulation controls in the front of the pedal along with others like tone I think. Now, these two pedals sound great! They have an amazing warmth and just really good analog tone.
Not so much with the Supa Puss. Now, the Supa Puss has the most amount of features, it's the longest but it doesn't sound the same... even with the gain (grit) knob all the way down you still hear that kind of concrete room type dynamics. Very lo fi. I don't say this as a bas thibg because some of you might like the lo fi wuality of the repeats or like me, you just have so many other great soundig pedals that it's ok to play somethig as gritty and lo fi ish as the supa pus.
But that is just the tip.
The supa has modulation controls depth, rate. Gain which adds grit or distortion and tone ... also when you press the feedback button you select a different sibdivision... there is something about the J Tripps subdivisions for me that are incredibly musical and rythmic, even on the echo puss it has that dotted 8th rythmic tone it dmsounds great. But anyways the supa sounds great in any subdivision you choose. It goes up to 900 ms a serious lenghth for an analog delay!!! It has a tap tempo button , another unexpected feature for an analog delay and it can go up to 3 or 4 seconds with the tap tenpo button and it creates an extremely degraded, bit crushed signal that is , oh my god... heavenly... all of this can only be done with digital control... and trips came out with the "Digital Brain , Analog Heart" a lot before chase bliss... but hey, I love chase bliss... not knocking it.
All of this is incredibly inspiring and you can come up with very weirs textures, oscillation and just crazy sounding repeats. Oh but when you press and hold the feedback button the subdivisions start to sequence. So they move feom one to the other making this glitchy, tremolo like effect... you have to hear it to understand .
You can chance the speed, the order of the sequence it can go one way, backwards, random, two on one side two on thw other... man did George put a lot of thought and love into this pedal and it might be one of the most underrated pedals in the way huge line.
Hook it up to an expression pedal for extra fun!
Bottom line, this pedal does what most pedals don't. Even digital ones. It's a little hard to tame at the beggining with the mix knob and gain , but you get used to it quickly... people takong off 2 stars because of something like that seems a little harsh but everybody can judge the gear however they want.
This oedal can be a ver simple delay, just select the time and repeats. Or it can be a more complicated beast. But not too complicated. But your choice.
I think this pedal is definitely worth having. It's very unique, very high quality, very fun, very good, by the way the guy that made this George Trips has also made the aqua puss, carbon copy, helped with the line 6 , and many ither delays. He is the delay master!
