This little monster from Discomfort Designs is called Glow Cloud. It’s not an easy machine to categorize, as
it’s a melange of drive, lo-fi delay, and noise maker. It will process external signals like guitars, keyboards, microphones, and drum machines or it can create complex sounds on its own. It is equal parts melodic and chaotic.
Analog style, lo-fi and borderline anti-fidelity delays (courtesy of the infamous PT2399 chip) sewer pipe echoes, eerie bit-crusher memories, and tectonic disturbance noise chaos. Oh, and also some short and resonant lo-fi reverb.
The noise/oscillation features are the wildest things Glow Cloud has to offer. The echo time sweep has been set much lower than the standard delay pedal. When the Shmog control is turned up, the sound breaks up into blipping squeals and screeches. Combine this with distortion and feedback tones and a reverse decay setting and you’ve got a huge gamut and range of complex drone power.
Thanks for your continued support, and remember, these videos are intended to show off the PEDALS and what they can do, not what a brilliant guitar player I am - there are plenty of shredder videos out there, and besides, I'm really a drummer :)
