Even though we are currently slowed down by some life challenges — we are celebrating our birthday today!
We started on May 21st 2021 and we have been officially live for two years now. We are still at the starting point and are really looking forward to what’s to come.
We want to thank all of you who helped us out, send us honest feedback, had conversations with us about crafting diy gear, expressed interest in collabs and making demos, bought our devices, let us create custom devices for you, shared our devices on social media paired with warm words, and last but not least our suppliers who backed us in this still unstable time with the high quality parts we need to build our stuff. You all made it possible that we can go on.
The RITA’S CRACKED POINTE SHOE is a collaboration between TH/FX NOISEDEVICES and Sam McKinlay of THE RITA. It is intended to be used as a handheld device and the effect’s intensity can be controlled continously variable via a pot. Use it like Sam in its raw state to create THE RITA aesthetic, or send it adjusted through your effects chain to build some ominous walls of sound.
The HARSH ANTI is a device for all kinds of electric sound generating instruments. It is a wide range ringmod distortion which goes from »void« to »harsh« with just the turn of a knob. Dialing the ringmod pots to zero leads to pure distortion. But not only the HARSH ANTI’s sound is harsh. The seven LEDs also combine to create a super bright red spot.
Today we celebrate our 1st anniversary! Again, we want to say THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who helped us out, send us honest feedback, had conversations with us about crafting DIY gear, expressed interest in collabs and making demos, bought our devices, let us create custom devices for you, shared our devices on social media paired with warm words, and last but not least, our suppliers who backed us in this still unstable time with the high quality parts we need to build our stuff.
Considering how many great pedal builders and companies are out there, we are very happy about every person who likes what we do. We really appreciate your support — we don’t take it for granted!
After these twelve month we are still at the starting point and are really looking forward to what’s to come.
The »BAIKAL« is a hybrid monophonic desktop synthesizer that offers the best of both analog and digital worlds. At the moment this is a one of a kind for sale, but if there is interest, we will consider releasing a small series of it — hit us up!
It is designed in two halves — the main circuit board is all digital, generating various sound sources, mixing and treatment options, envelopes, LFOs, and a 16-step sequencer and arpeggiator. It is equipped with an 16-line by 2-character LCD display, an encoder pot to navigate through parameters/pages shown on the display, four pots to modify the synthesis parameters, and six push buttons to cycle between groups of related pages, to switch between the synthesis pages and the sequencer/system pages, and to load and recall presets.
The all analog LP2 filter plus delay board forms the second half of the BAIKAL. It combines a raw OTA-C 2-pole filter with a classic lo-fi delay. It contains the voltage-controlled filter and amplifier, and has the ability to treat external audio.
We had the pleasure to develop, design, and build this special Geiger counter imitating device named RITA’S CRACKED POINTE SHOE for THE RITA.
»Noise generator custom designed to replicate the recent THE RITA Richard III and W.I.S.P. recordings which were all otherwise constructed via pre-recorded source sounds and bias heavy fuzz pedals. Beautiful work by TH/FX NOISEDEVICES.« — THE RITA
It can be used as a handheld device, has one killswitch, and one push button to control the speed of the Geiger counter sound. 100% handmade, best metal parts, no cheap plastics, unique design, etched enclosure.
KING RICHARD III by THE RITA coming soon from FOUL PREY.
We built another »BOOSTED PIGEON« for Andi from Nuremberg. It is an original LM308 powered R*T circuit as near as possible to the 70’s original. You can also choose between harsh LED clipping and the LOUD! lift off setting via switch.
With the optional booster you have the ability to drive it even harder — set to max the booster itself blends massive dirt into the signal.
We started on 21/05/21 and we have been officially live for seven month today. It wasn’t the best time for lifting this passion into a business. Most of the time we couldn’t see each other in person and had to deal with things online, but anyways …
We want to thank all of you who helped us out, send us honest feedback, had conversations with us about crafting DIY gear, expressed interest in collabs and making demos, bought our devices, let us create custom devices for you, shared our devices on social media paired with warm words, and last but not least our suppliers who backed us in this unstable time with the high quality parts we need to build our stuff. You all made it possible that we can go on in the next year.
After these seven month we are still at the starting point and are really looking forward to what’s to come in 2022. So keep taking care of each other, show solidary with people in need, smash fascism, and support your local scene.
See you next year — hugs and kisses! TH/FX NOISEDEVICES, Kevin & Niels.
PS: We put the next device we are releasing already in the post — maybe you can spot it.
OUT NOW — an analogue guitar stack simulator which has the overdrive characteristics of a classic British style doom amp. The shape section can be set variabely so you can achieve the sound of diverse 4×12 cab models. Use the PreAmp and the shape section combined or the PreAmp alone in combination with your effect chain through your interface to record with your computer. Or as a classic overdrive into your clean amp or straight through your effects loop. The icing on the cake is the ability to switch the signal directly to your headphones which makes you independent from your interface while jamming.
