#TBT Richard Factor on NAMM 2019

Our founder, Richard Factor, shares some insights from year's NAMM Show. 

Heaven on Cloud 9 (H9!)

This week on our Pedals with the Pros feature, Larry Mitchell cut some time out of his busy schedule to chat with us. He had tons to say about the H9, so we figured it would be better if he just said it all himself… blog takeover!

 

From Phasing to Flanging

Like the Instant Phaser, the Instant Flanger quickly found a home in studios and band rigs worldwide. When Led Zeppelin performed “Kashmir” live, they used the Flanger. (The Instant Phaser was on the studio recording, but the Flanger nailed it live.) Stanley Clarke used it across multiple albums. Isao Tomita also used the Instant Flanger on Kosmos and The Bermuda Triangle. Frank Marino toured with the Instant Flanger. And Jonathan Wilson still uses one today.

Artist Spotlight: Saxophonist Hayes Greenfield

In the following blog, Hayes Greenfield demonstrates some of the gorgeous sounds that he cajoles out of his chain of H9 pedals, playing his alto saxophone hooked up via wireless microphone and contact pickup attached to the reed.

The Instant Phaser: A Timeless Classic Reborn

The phaser has become a studio staple used both dramatically in songs like Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love” or Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” and, more often, subtly to widen the sound of any instrument.

We recently caught up with Derya “Dez” Nagle of the band Good Tiger. In this video, he gives us a rundown of his compact but hefty guitar setup, featuring an H9 Max and Space going through a Mastermind pedalboard controller.

Artist-in-Residence: Martha Mooke

In this new blog series, composer and electro-acoustic violist, Martha Mooke, will be exploring multifaceted ways of using the H9. Keep an eye out for videos on violins, violas, cellos, saxophones, electronic winds and brass, voice, synths, percussion and more!

Insider – 100% Swill-free: No Sale, No Promo, No Products

First off, we want to say thanks for neglecting to ‘unsubscribe’ from our newsletter for yet another year. And, of course, thanks for your support. As we welcome 2019 (anno MMXIX), we thought we’d share some non-product related memories of 2018 (anno MMXVIII).

A Glimpse of the Future from the Past

In 1979, Tony Agnello had a vision. Up to that point, effect units were dedicated to a single function. There were EQs, compressors, limiters, pitch changers, flangers and phasers, but no box was powerful enough to handle more than a single, simple function. Tony saw the potential of a Digital Signal Processing box that could do much, much more.

Dan Ingram and the Evil Ox

Dan Ingram

In this special blog we pay tribute to Dan Ingram. Dan was the top rated American top 40 DJ for almost 22 years on 77 WABC NY. In this excerpt from Richard Factor’s blog, we hear about what it was like to work as Dan’s engineer in the halcyon days of radio.
