    That seems to be a really interesting piece of equipment! Please share more of your experience when you fell like it

    Have fun! Still coming to grips myself.
    Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3 of my best ambient stuff from last year. 1 is the Frippertronic stuff, 2 is the knob twiddling, and 3 is one big meditative piece.

    Putting the finishing touches on a new album. It'll be a collection of ambient/post-rock experiments that have been kicking around my computer for ever, that I wanted to finish up and put out there before I move onto the next big thing.

    So I figured I'd release a single with shorter versions of a few of these experiments, 'cause that seemed like a musiciany thing to do.

    The full album is now live. I know you guys were chomping your bits waiting for it...

    Listening now, I don't dance either. Sounds good.

    Not ambient, just some old angry electronica that I dusted off recently and finished.

    Something relaxing from this weekend. I felt like soundscaping without volume pedaling. All the swells here are from the TC Crescendo pedal.

    If you're curious what the Mel9 sounds like. I got one about a month ago. Came across this last night; this was me experimenting with it about 5 minutes after unboxing.

    Very nice; I do like those swells.
    They are somewhat reminiscent of some E-Bow techniques.
    Thanks for sharing this!

    Wow. Quite nice tones. The 'cello sound is especially accurate. It won't prompt me to toss out my keyboards but it sure must be cool to access that world from a guitar.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for listening!

    The Mel9 is my first venture into EHX's world of emulator pedals and I didn't know what to expect. I am fully convinced that there's nothing inside the casing but a magic spell. Having played with midi pickups and triggering samples from guitar and finding the experience inelegant and unappealing... I have no idea how EHX makes my guitar trigger these sounds in an analogue setting, elegantly, organically and latency-free.

    I must say, I too am intrigued by many of their boxes. And i also agree: I don't know how they can make the Mel9 do what it does so smoothly and quickly.

    I got the Synth 9 recently, been having fun with that. I've had the Mel9 for quite a while now and I thought I would try playing them in unison. I put the Synth 9 first in the chain then ran a cable from the dry output into the Mel9. Very strangely the synth sound came out of the dry output of the Synth 9 into the Mel 9 so I couldn't get one unaffected by the other. I must be misunderstanding something unless its faulty.Edit

    edit: Actually its possible I got crossed when going thru the stereo reverb pedal...

    Anyway, this is one of my efforts with the Mel9:

    So how would you rate the Crescendo versus using a volume pedal?

    Apples and artichokes, pretty much. With the Crescendo there's no feeling of controlling the swells, and an ever-present anxiety that you're going to hit a note before the gate has closed behind the previous note and get a loud, full attack. And the gate does close pretty quickly, so any sustain has to come from delay and reverb.

    It's best used as a toy when you want to sit on the floor. Someday, when I have cash to burn on a pedal that I don't really need, I want to check out the Pog 2, and see if that does a better job if autoswelling.

    ^ Thanks for that, as I suspected.

    Here's one of my early efforts with the Mooer Ocean Machine (also has some Mel9 in there too). I modified one of the presets with the first delay (Liquid) set at about 500ms and the second (tape) at just under 2000 ms with a hall reverb.

    As the new sig indicates, I've launched a long-form ambient guitar podcast. Enjoy.
