Iron Ether Subterranea vs. Copilot FX Cubic
Iron Ether "Subterranea" vs. Copilot FX "Cubic"...thoughts anyone?
They seem to do similar things, but which one does better what it does?
Which one sounds better to you and why?
Which one tracks better?
I haven't received my Sub yet, but I do love my cubic. Not tons of talk about IT around here, but when dialed in it sounds great. Huge win when paired with the Xerograph. Unfortunately I see my self flipping the cubic once my sub gets here.
Taylor = Amazing well designed PEDALS!
I have an Orbit. While it does do some octaveish sounds it isn't an octaver. It's a fuzz with a VCO. It seems to have more in common with a ringmod than a synth to me. I don't have a Subterranea to compare it to but I think if you had them side by side you would notice big differences.
Thanks for the input thus far!
Oops. I red Orbit somehow. It was early.
I had an Cubic once, it sounded massive and awesome. The tracking did get a little wonky at points, but mine was one of the very first models. I don't have a SubT, but has an octave plus an oscillator not an octave plus fuzz like the cubic.
I think the SubT is like a evolved version of the Cubic that is a little more refined and tracks considerably better. This is not to say anything negative about the tracking on the Cubic, it is great. The SubT just has the best tracking of any "pitch tracking" pedal...ever..IMO
I really like the Cubic because it can get really synthy and eliminate the need for a fuzz pedal when running a "synth" pedal chain. It can get REALLY nasty when you engage the switch that adds some harmonization and crank the filter and gain.
The SubT serves this purpose as well, but just has a lot more options because of the various waveforms and the UniSynth. And, like I said, the tracking is stellar.
Both pedals are great for what they do. Here are some demos I did of the SubT and the Cubic:
I haven't had the pleasure of trying either of these pedals, after hearing a few demos of each, I'd say the Cubic sounds like it has fuzz on top of its octave, while the SubT seems to have classic buzzy analog synth in its DNA.
