TWA Announces the SS-01 Side Step Universal Tap-Tempo LFO

A variable-state, tap-tempo low-frequency oscillator that can be used to control practically any device with an expression input.

Clifton, NJ (October 29, 2019) -- The Side Step is a variable-state, tap-tempo low-frequency oscillator (LFO) that can be used to control practically any device with an expression input and/or +5V control voltage source. Just connect it to the slave pedal and tap to create unique new sounds and effects.

The Side Step LFO rate can be controlled via tap tempo, onboard rate pot, or an external expression pedal. The SS-01 features eight different waveform options for its onboard LFO, which are selectable via rotary switch.

The EXP jack allows connection of your favorite expression pedal to the Side Step, while the EXP Thru switch allows for standard operation of the expression pedal with the slave pedal/device - effectively bypassing the Side Step without having to disconnect it. The Side Stepâ„¢ can also be hard bypassed to use the slave pedal/device in its standard operating mode.

Features:

  • Universal tap-tempo LFO can be connected to the EXP/CV jack of practically any audio device

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
