• Fuzz Modulator - from classic, thick gated fuzz tones, to glitchy sonic anomalies
• Pulse Width Dials - create everything from huge doubler tones to chaotic cascading walls of sound
• Glitch Switch - momentarily introduce oscillation into the signal, for bursts of trippy textures
• Expression Input - for on the fly control of the delay time
• Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU
(centre -, 2.1 mm, <80 mA current draw)
On the surface, the SUPER WEIRDO is disguised as an early 90s-style gated fuzz, with a dedicated low pass filter knob to effortlessly find your place anywhere in the mix. But that’s far from where the freak show ends. This three-headed beast delivers fuzz, time modulation, AND momentary glitch-bombs all in one enclosure.
The core operation of this unit is to further enhance the input signal with an advanced, time-based modulation effect - The Pulse Width Modulator.
Two dedicated knobs allow the player to multiply and manipulate their playing. The Feedback Mix controls the amount of modulated signal added to the base sound, acting almost as a doubler. A further Time Amount knob controls the distance between each modulated pulse, enabling the addition and separation of layer upon layer, resulting in a wall of thick, dynamic and articulate fuzz. Plus, if you dial in a short time setting, you get a doubletracking fuzz tone.
Beyond this, an extra momentary footswitch gives the player expressive freedom to disrupt the signal with quick bursts of oscillation - aptly named Glitch. Plus, to guarantee all manner of expressive possibilities, an expression input allows you to connect a standard expression pedal for on the fly creativity.
