OMG! My Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water arrived today, I'm totally out of it, my Reface CP through it is beyond sublime, this pedal is a time machine, no doubting.

The overdrive situation is now solved, the Shallow Water on that synth does exactly what I want, no thinness anymore, just a lovely fat sound, providing you keep the depth and mix controls at sensible levels it just acts like a nice "fattener"

So a mono delay-based effect, not a stereo tube-based effect... As long as it does what you want, that’s the main thing.

Off topic:
You mentioned having lots of good sounds for the micron (presumably other than the factory presets). If they are not purchased, are you willing to share? I just got a micron as the ideal tiny ‘take on hols’ keyboard, looking forward to exploring it. Incidentally, are you aware of the Patchbase ipad editor for the micron/miniak? I haven’t connected it up yet but it looks very comprehensive.

Yes! The opposite of what I wanted, but it works, with the benefit of all the beautiful sounds in the pedal, makes the Micron sound wonderful, and I'm using the mono output.
Not sure you'd like my sounds, but you're welcome to have them! There are about 35 I think?
I'm not going to program any more sounds for it, so I'm OK in that respect.

Thank you! I'll PM you.

It's basically a chorus with a hefty low-pass filter... so it's bound to make things sound 'fat'.

A very good one too, it does the job.

She wasn't here last time I was on this thread. Nurse!


Edit: Arpangel, would you do some before and after demos?
