This special effect rack is a resonator infused with a dub delay, called the ResoDUB! Available as a FREE DOWNLOAD.
This audio effect has been especially mapped to be able to dial in any chord in any key signature, simply by turning a couple of macro knobs.
After a key and chord degree is selected, you can start to change and morph the resonator sound with independent delay time macros,
exploring feedback loops, LFO filter sweeps, drowned in reverb or dry and brittle.
With the device you would be able to create very intricate poly-rhythmic chordal textures, both legato (long) and staccato (short) noted phrases.
And after all that start to record different chord progressions by just turning a macro knob and listening out for a preferable sequence.

Hope to find you mesmerised by audio manipulation and sonic exploration.
