ALEXANDER RADICAL DELAY
The Alexander Radical Delay is here to remind us what was cool in the ‘80s: digital delays, crude pitch shifting and arcade games. Seriously, that was it.
You’ll find the best of each throughout the Radical Delay’s three modes: Mod, Glitch and Bend. The Mod setting is perhaps the most straightforward—it’s a crystal-clear digital delay. Keeping the Tweak knob at noon preserves the clarity, and turning it left or right adds vibrato or chorus modulation, respectively.
Glitch mode sounds like a Pac Man or Gorf arcade cabinet on the verge of meltdown. With the Tweak knob fully counterclockwise, it’s as clear as Mod mode, but with one turn of the Tweak, glitchy madness and pitch modulation awaits.
If you were around to witness the genesis of pich-shifting technology, Bend mode should sound familiar to you. With the Tweak at noon, the repeats are clean. To the left or right, however, each repeat is shifted down or up, respectively. Each subsequent repeat is also shifted, for a spiral of octave-down notes or an uplifting digital crescendo.
Turning the Time knob down turns off the delay and the Radical Delay gets just plain Radical. The Glitch and Bend modes can be used as modulators, as can the modulation from Mod mode. There’s a lot going on here!
