THE TIMEBENDER ($449 RETAIL/$299 STREET)provides five seconds of true stereo delay in ten flavors: Digital, Analog, Moving Head Tape, Variable Speed Tape, Dynamic Digital, Dynamic Analog, Dynamic Repeats, Time Warp, Reverse, and Envelope. The controls are relatively straightforward, with dedicated knobs for adjusting standard parameters such as Delay Time, Repeats, Mix, Modulation speed, and Tone. Delay time may be displayed in milliseconds or BPM, and set with the Delay Time control, via tap-tempo, or using the Strum feature (more on this later). A Multiplier button provides further flexibility by letting you reconfigure the current delay time using whole-,half-, quarter-, and eighth-note values, and a blue LED constantly indicates the tempo to minimize confusion.
The TimeBender also allows you to process delays in various ways. For example, the ingenious Modulation control lets you apply Slow or Fast modulation and also adjust its depth using a single knob. Even cooler, you can organize delays into rhythmic patterns either by selecting one of ten presets (organized into Simple, Dual, and Multi-tap types), or programming a custom pattern by strumming your muted guitar strings while holding down the right foot switch. Cooler still, you can shift the pitch of the delay repeats in various ways, including chromatically (+/- one octave, or two octaves down), as triads (four options), or by scale degree (you hold down the right foot switch and strum a chord to program the key that the scale tones will be derived from). You can also use the Strum feature to program the key and the tempo simultaneously by holding down the right footswitch and strumming a chord at the desired tempo.
If you really want to get fancy you can combine functions. For example, to create a Root-Based Pattern Delay you select a pattern and a harmony, and the TimeBender generates corresponding arpeggios. Or to create seemingly randomly pitched arpeggios, you select the Envelope delay and one of eight Random Voicings—and you can dial in a pattern for additional fun.(Tip: while the TimeBender works fine in mono, to unlock its maximum rhythmic and pitch shifting magic you’ll want to go stereo.) Oh, and did I mention the dedicated 20-secondLooper? It does basic mono looping and overdubbing, automatically tweaks the loop’s beginning and end points for increased accuracy, graphically displays the loop information, and works with the pitch function to create harmonized loops.
Programs may be stored in one of four memory locations and recalled using the Store button or an optional footswitch, and connecting an optional expression pedal allows you to morph between any two parameter or effects settings for everything from simple harmony shifts to radical time warping.
The digital delays are crisp and super clean and quiet, the analog delays have just the right amount of vintage-style funkiness, and the Dynamic or ducking versions of both smoothly attenuate the repeats while you are playing and let them surge forth when you pause. The Envelope...
UST Executive Conference on the Future of Health Care
Dates: 11/5/2020 – 11/5/2020
University of St.Thomas Saint Paul
2260 Summit Avenue
Discover how you can play an active role in shaping the future by what you do within your organization and network with other health care leaders who are dealing with similar issues. The pace of change in health care has increased exponentially since our inaugural health care conference. And by the time the second annual conference convenes, Congress will have passed its bill for health care reform. We’ll have officially begun a new journey.Fortunately, visionary leaders have been helping to shape this next phase of health care. Investments in innovation and quality have led to some very effective – and often surprising – ways to cut costs, reduce errors, increase service and satisfaction, and improve access and outcomes. Bold initiatives such as these should be shared – especially during this transformative time, when we are all looking for fresh models of excellence. The University of St. Thomas and its partners invite you to participate in an inspiring day of learning, sharing and strategizing about how we can leverage innovation and quality to thrive in the new health care environment. Book Club:November 4, 2010Thursday, 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.Conference:November 5, 2010Friday, 8:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.Please visit the University of St. Thomas Executive Health Care Conference website for more information or copy and paste the following URL: http://ustfutureofhealthcare.com
