Boss VB-2 Vibrato
Alderete: I do like the Chase Bliss Audio Warped Vinyl, but the Boss VB-2 Vibrato is just home for me. Unfortunately, it’s pretty expensive. It’s just the best vibrato ever made. I guess you can emulate that sound, but I don’t think that chip exists anymore. Maybe in the modeling world they will get close.
“I think of digital delays as samplers with parameters you can mess with. That’s more interesting to me than an echo pedal. I use them for modern, glitched-out stuff.” — Jonathan Hischke
Hischke: I think of digital delays as samplers with parameters you can mess with. That’s more interesting to me than an echo pedal. I use them for modern, glitched-out stuff. The DigiTech TimeBender came out maybe five years ago. There are some things that make it short of perfect. I’d like to talk to DigiTech to see if they can do another version of it. It does all of the things normal delays do, plus all this wild shit. It’s more of studio tool for me, but there are things I’ve done in Broken Bells and Dot Hacker that would be impossible without that pedal. Unfortunately, mine is broken right now, and I need to get another one.
