Old Blood Noise Endeavors Minim – Reverb Delay and Reverse
Looking back on an inspiring year of collaboration with Datachoir, Old Blood Noise Endeavors created Minim, a new pedal built from the foundation laid out by Rêver.
Inside is a newly voiced reverb with harmonic tremolo, a modulated delay with nearly infinite repeats available, and a reverse section selectable between normal speed or double speed.
Sat next to the Rêver, it’s like a long lost sibling. Put both on your board and see how well they get along.
This is how the guys at OBNE describe the Minim:
“Think of Minim as having two blocks: One block takes whatever signal it gets and reverses it at the press of a foot-switch, and the other block gives you modulated reverb fed into a modulated delay. Then there’s a switch that decides which block comes first.Each control is simple, but put them together and you’re likely to loose all sense of time.”
- A modulated reverb with controls for mix, modulation, and decay
- A post-reverb modulated delay with controls for volume, delay time, and feedback
- A reverse section with controls for mix and speed (for double time effects), activated with a clever footswitch for momentary or latching operation
- Order switching to put reverse first in the chain for ambient wash or last in the chain for glitchy textures
- Expression jack for external control of the Reverse mix
- Internal trimpot to control output level
REVERB: Mix between the input signal and reverb block
MOD: Speed and depth of the tremolo on the reverb
DECAY: Length of the reverb
DELAY: Volume of the delay
TIME: Time of the delay – always modulating
FEEDBACK: Feedback from one delay to infinity
BLEND: Mix of input signal to reversed effect
REVERSE: Footswitch to engage reverse
SPEED: Toggle to set speed go reverse
ORDER: Determines if reverse comes first of last in the signal chain
