Old Blood Noise Minim output stereo or mono?

Postby Arpangel » Thu Apr 09, 2020 9:29 am

I can’t seem to find a schematic, or any info about the output of the Minim, it has one output jack, but I’m just wondering if it has a stereo out capability on a single stereo jack?
No info anywhere I can see, nothing to suggest either way.

I reckon if it had a stereo output they'd make a fuss about it. Looks like a mono device to me.

Thanks Hugh, yes, I had a dive inside, you’re right.

By chance I was just looking at these today and GASing.

How do you like it?

I like it, got it to put on the end of my Moog.
It’s a bit of a shame it’s not stereo though, the effects warrant that, limiting them to mono seems a shame.
It’s got a nice character, it’s not subtle, if you’re into long journeys into deep space this is for you...

Nice. I've got a couple of normal reverbs but quite like the idea of some weird and wonderful textural stuff to combine with a looper

I’ve had the Minim for a couple of months, and it’s got a few things that are now, becoming really annoying.
Like a lot of the latest boutique pedals, they are good at one particular thing, but when you want to step in and change, or control things they aren’t very flexible. I’m finding the Minim is very much like this.
Things I don’t like...the reverb quality isn’t that good, and it’s mono, it’s OK when used with the rest of the effects, but very underwhelming on its own.
The delay has fixed modulation, and it’s too much, it gets on my nerves after awhile.
The maximum delay time is too low for me, at 400ms.
I’m not sure I’ll be holding on to this, it’s good at really colouring things, but the brush is too broad, and not flexible enough for me,
