Molten Voltage Announces OZ Looper Controller

Molten Voltage just announced their OZ Looper Controller for Strymon's Timeline.

Oregon (May 22, 2013) -- Molten Voltage just announced their OZ Looper Controller for Strymon's Timeline. Here are the details from their website:

OZâ„¢ unlocks the hidden LOOPER features of your Strymon TimeLine Delay pedal that can only be accessed via MIDI commands, including REVERSE, HALF-SPEED / DOUBLE-SPEED, UNDO, and REDO. OZ also allows soft-switch, single-touch record/playback, External LOOP LEVEL control, and automatic DRY LOOPER recording.


  • Unlocks the hidden potential of the Strymon TimeLine delay by accessing its MIDI-only LOOPER features
  • REVERSE loop direction instantly
  • HALF-SPEED playback and recording with LED Speed indicator. Tip: record at half-speed to create double-speed playback!
  • UNDO back to initial loop
  • REDO overdubs (after pressing UNDO)
  • Single-press, soft-touch recording and playback - Press and Hold the Record Button while recording and the loop automatically enters Play mode on release --- makes loop timing far easier and more accurate than pressing a second button
  • DRY switch automates the use of TimeLine's LOOPER mode without any Delay Effect by automatically setting the MIX to zero (guitar only) on Record
  • LOOP LEVEL control - adjust in real-time, or set it and forget it (auto-adjust on Record)
  • MIDI IN merges and filters incoming MIDI data for optimal TimeLine synchronization and performance
  • One-cable MIDI connection to the TimeLine - no mods required!
  • Staggered, stairstep switch design for easy-access to rear switches
  • Simple, intuitive user interface

A father-and-son team work together to create an original, futuristic gold guitar, and the result is extremely satisfying.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
