Description

Malekko Charlie Foxtrot

The Malekko Charlie Foxtrot is a digital buffer and granular pedal with both auto-capture and manual capture of the input signal.

Manipulate playback and capture through several parameters using the control knobs because this gives great control. Vary the size of the buffer, duration of repeats, pitch mode, threshold, mix, and preamp levels.

Control any combination of Size, Duration, Pitch Mode, and Trigger Threshold settings, both positive and negative sweep, using an expression pedal or through CV input.

Here it is in action

Features

  • Buffer/Grain Size – Adjustable or random buffer grain size from approximately 200ms to 600ms
  • Duration – Adjustable or random repeat duration from 100ms to 10 sec.
  • Four different Pitch Modes & Random
    • Stutter with no pitch modulation
    • Up: Modulate pitch in the up direction with a randomized speed and amount of modulation
    • Down: Modulate pitch  in the down direction with a randomized speed and amount of modulation
    • Both where the pitch is modulated in both up and down directions with a randomized speed and amount of modulation)
    • Random which selects between the first four modes at random, but is biased toward Stutter
  • Threshold – Set the threshold for auto-capture of input data. All the way CW is in manual trigger mode. With the knob all the way CCW, input will continuously capture at the end of each duration.
  • Mix – Set the mix from 100% dry to 100% wet.
  • Preamp Level – Attenuate or amplify input signal. Unity is at approx. 12 o’clock.

Controls

9VOLT DC POWER JACK

Only for use with standard 2.5mm neg-tip 200mA 9volt DC power supply.

STOMP SWITCH

Turns the effect on or off. Also used to assign expression/cv control and assign filter type selection.

INPUT JACK

Connect instrument cable

MAIN LED

Effect on/off

EXPRESSION JACK INPUT

Connect expression pedal. Buffer/Granular SIZE, DURATION of repeats, PITCH MODE and THRESHOLD controls are all capable of being controlled by the EXP/CV input.

You can choose any combination of these pots for external control

THRESHOLD

Set the threshold for auto-capture of input data. All the way clockwise is Manual Trigger Mode.

In Manual Trigger Mode, hitting the stomp switch will activate the effect one time, based on your DURATION setting. With the knob all the way counterclockwise, input will continuously capture at the end of each duration.

MIX

Dry/effect mix control

4 PITCH MODES

  • ST or “Stutter” (no pitch modulation), “Up” arrow (pitch is modulated in the up direction with a randomized speed and amount of modulation.
  • Down arrow (pitch is modulated in the down direction with a randomized speed and amount of modulation
  • Both arrows (pitch is modulated in both up and down directions with a randomized speed and amount of modulation).
  • R or “Random” (this mode selects between the first four modes at random, but is biased toward Stutter)

DURATION

Adjustable or random repeat duration from approx. 100ms to 10 sec.

SIZE – BUFFER/GRAIN SIZE

Adjustable or random buffer/grain size from approximately 200ms to 600ms

PREAMP

Input gain/attenuation. Adjust per clipping LED. Unity gain approx 12 o’clock

CLIP LED

Indicates input clipping. Adjustable with PREAMP control

OUTPUT

Connect to amplifier

Power

9vDC adapter (neg tip). Current draw is approximately 50 mA.

The Malekko Charlie Foxtrot is a signature pedal for Peter Holmström (The Dandy Warhols, Pete International Airport, Rebel Drones and Radis Noir)
