It's the return of the Heffalumps and Woozles song! Now with my new(old) Alesis BitRMan! Bit Decimator Bit Reducer Frequency Modulator Frequency Shift I found this thing at a DJ store of all places - it pays to look in places you wouldn't normally think of! It's a combination compressor, digital distortion, phaser, and digital distressor. In a word, it's disgusting! I've always wanted a bit reducer, and this had that and more (bit reducer, bit decimator, comb filter, frequency modulator, ring mod, and frequency shift), so I couldn't resist. You can even arrange the FX in different orders, which drastically changes the sound. I've barely dug into it, but I've already come up with the sounds above. Neat! There are some cons however. It's a desktop unit, so I'm going to have to gut it and put it into a pedal format. It sucks tone BIG TIME even when in bypass (I'm going to install a true bypass switch). It's not exactly a purists box, so I'm sure the sound isn't for everybody, which makes it perfect for me. This thing replaces my Machine as my nastiest effect. I got mine for $59!! Can't argue with that!
