Meet The Dwarfcraft ARF

Check out the new Dwarfcraft ARF (Attack Release Filter). It’s everything you ever wanted in a filter, complete with a picture of a sexy lady with a dog’s head. Naturally. The Attack/Release envelope has a huge range and the activation of the envelop and the duration of the sustained peak are controlled by a foot switch or CV gate signal. The envelope is then routed to an aggressive low pass filter with enough “extra” on the resonance to get some self oscillation. The filter cutoff can also be controlled via CV input. There are also CV outs for integration with your synth or Eurorack set ups.

Seymour Duncan Studio Bass Compressor

Studio-Bass-Compressor

PRESS RELEASE: The Studio Bass Compressor is a studio-grade soft-knee compressor designed for bassists who want to take control of the dynamics of their sound, from a subtle smoothing-out of peaks and valleys to the most squished and pinched extremes and everywhere in between. It’s extremely low noise and has an easy-to-use control format: The Blend knob allows you to adjust the amount of wet signal so you can bring natural snap back into your individual notes. The Volume knob lets you control the output (or you can push it up and lower the Compression for a great clean boost). The Attack knob regulates how quickly the compressor reacts to your initial pick attack – cranking it up will give a late attack that allows your pick or finger dynamics to come through before the compression kicks in. The Compressor knob is the heart of the pedal and allows you to easily control the dynamic range.  Read More …
