T.C. has been teasing a new productÂ for a little while now, but it was only a couple weeks ago that they officially announced what this new thing is. Â Well, here it is – the HyperGravity Compressor.
OK, this video is 75% the Klon clone, but I give Amp 11 and the Fuzz Tool Jr. a fair amount of play, I think. Well, here are my thoughts on the Klon. First off, I have absolutely no first-hand experience with the real thing. But with this Klon clone being a part-for-part reproduction of the original, I trust that I’ve assembled something that sounds faithful to the genuine article.
Here’s my mini pedalboard mounted on a Pedaltrain Metro-16, one of their new offerings for 2015. Previously, I had the old Pedaltrain Mini. Apparently, my model had gone through a couple of revisions. One of them is publicly known and visually obvious. The other, more or less nobody knows about and you really can’t tell just by looking at it. What it comes down to is that my Mini doesn’t accept any non-daisychain power supplies.
Not sure when it all started, but some time this yearÂ I started to be really drawn to the sound of fuzz.

I always thought fuzz just wasn’t for me…that it was merely an extension of the “overdriven sound” spectrum that only resided on the crazy end of things.

spotted this cool looking camera sometime last week and thought it was really cool. really digging the analog battery and memory indicators as well as the balance between black and brushed metal. i’ve been pretty jaded by many of recent offerings of other manufacturers. even the recent offerings of canon are somewhat of a mixed bag. i’ll admit to putting form before function, so i may be missing out on features. but i don’t care… i remember owning the NV10 a couple years back. it was beautifully functional. i loved the grid UI – extremely elegant and intuitive. there were […]
started to listen to this this week. but i’ve been so sick i couldn’t even enjoy it! i’ve been listening to this album all day now that i’m better. so far so good!
