modulating my ring
21.12.2015
i do like a ring modulator.

this a nicely built pedal. heavy duty casing. sensible controls, (although the addition of an expression pedal input would be a splendid thing)

the tracking is good, especially on lower settings, (it makes a fine octavider as a bonus.) but the non tracking, dissonate ring mod was what i was originally after and it does that nicely.

not a pedal for constant use but it injects just the right amount of odd when required.

Viele Möglichkeiten
Günter283, 03.06.2016
Ich verwende den Vitruvian für Bass. Für gigs mit der Rockband sind die meisten Einstellungen und Klänge zu radikal; man kann durch Versuche und behutsames Drehen der Regler aber auch gemäßigte Effekte erzielen. Der Oktaver, den ich durch experimentieren gefunden habe, klingt zwar nicht wie das Ausgangssignal des Basses, sondern nach Synth, das tracking ist aber besser als bei meinem eigentlichen Oktavpedal. Ein Flanger-Effekt, den ich ebenso zufällig fand, macht andere Flanger obsolet.
Für Solo-Projekte mit verschiedenen Layers ist der Vitruvian ein Hammer, weil er unglaublich viele Möglichkeiten der Klangbeeinflussung in einer Mini-Stompbox vereinigt.
Wer von der Bedienunganleitung Hinweise auf Einstellungen (zB "empfohlene Startpunkte") und ihre klanglichen Auswirkungen erwartet. Probieren geht hier über studieren. Und: Immer die Einstellungen fotografieren, wenn man einen "merk-würdigen" Klang gefunden hat. Sonst findet man den später nie wieder. (Abzug eines Sterns bei den Features, weil es keine Speichermöglichkeit gibt.)

Dunkel, viel zu dunkel!
Robert Balcar, 04.05.2019
Gleich vorweg, die Abbildungen zeigen die ältere Lackierung, die aktuelle ist die auf der SUBDECAY Web-Seite, schade eigentlich die vorherige gefiel mir besser. Wie bei praktisch allen SUBDECAY Pedalen ist auch das Klangbild des VITRUVIAN zu dunkel. Es ist mir ein Rätsel wie in den (älteren) Demos dieser Sound den ich eigentlich wollte realisiert wurde. Weder pre noch post, seriell oder parallel kam ich auch nur ansatzweise an diese "crazy" Sounds hin.
Da sich der Sound in keinster Weise aufhellen lässt, scheint das Pedal spätestens ab etwa 2000Hz komplett "dicht" zu machen. Vermutlich hat es man schon so früh gekappt weil es darüber zu viele Nebengeräusche entwickelt hat. Das ist definitiv nicht der Sound der älteren Ausführung!
Sehr ärgerlich, eigentlich ein cooles Pedal das mit Verzerrungen ziemlich abgefahrene Sounds entwickeln könnte/konnte! Die Schalter würden einige irre Varianten erzeugen, das Layout wäre klasse, die Erweiterung in Richtung "Experimental" wäre gesichert gewesen, aber so!? Diese Ausführung klingt als würde jemand im Keller einen Rasierapparat benutzen und ist auch genauso bedeutungslos!
Nur bedingt empfehlenswert, nicht abrufbares Potenzial wegen eingebauter Spaßbremse! Reagiert mit Gitarre, Samples oder Synthesizer viel zu verhalten, macht sich damit praktisch selbst irrelevant. Gegen rauschende Pedale kann man etwas tun, gegen fixe Frequenzfilter dagegen überhaupt nichts!

Too chaotic
edooart, 27.05.2020
You can do great sounds with it, but it has too many knobs and features that will lead you to create sounds which are not musical at all. It performs too noisy, too unclear in most of settings. In order to take all profit from it you need to play a specific style which matches what this pedal offers. I like weird sounds and extraterrestrial textures, but this one went too far in my opinion.
