Welp bought a MOOD from Detroit Modular yesterday and should be here today. :idk: :lol:

I was nervous on not using it but last sunday I sat down and recorded an ambient/electronic album out of nowhere on my 4 track using a microfreak synth->count to 5 and Boss PS-2. I love it and I want to do more of it and MOOD seems like it'll fit in perfectly. :love:

Ok, I caved and bought one. I'm thinking maybe it will replace my Red Panda Tensor. I know they're totally different pedals, I'm just looking at it from a general, over-arching "Looping-glitchy" category and I don't think I need two pedals from that category. We'll see I guess.

If it counts for anything I didn't love the Tensor and got rid of it pretty quickly. The Mood definitely has more "character/personality" to it. Both together would probably be killer tho since the mood isn't as loop-focused as the tensor is.

I def don’t love the tone of the tensor, it certainly colours the tone in a way I’m not insanely fond of. I’m looking forward to trying out the Mood. It will be my first CBA pedal and the demoes have definitely grown on me which is positive.

I have a few questions and hope someone can answer these since I can not find out:
1) Did anyone compare it to the Count to Five? Anyone has both? which do you prefer and why? I think they can sound a lot alike.

2) Can Mood do a 16 seconds delay like the EHX 16 seconds delay pedal? When doing do that how is the quality of the delay? Isn't it too grainy or noisy?

3) Can you also control the feedback of the loop side? so that the loops fade out slowly while you are adding new stuff, like you can with a delay I mean.

As I stated in the CT5 thread, I own both and they're very different beasts. The CT5 is a lot more loop oriented, where the Mood is a lot more effect oriented. I don't think I could pick a favourite as they cover different territory for me.

I have no idea how long the delay can actually get when you turn the clock down, but yes it does get quite lo-fi when the clock gets slower.

To my knowledge, this isn't possible, but slip mode might be what you're looking for :idk:

ok thanks. I will look for some videos that demonstrate slip mode then.

Was hoping the Mood could do similar things as the EHX 16 seconds delay pedal. But if it get's to grainy that isn't the case I guess....

I own a CT5 pedal but don't use it so much lately. Thinking about selling it and buying the Mood. But I am not sure yet. Some of the Mood sounds I hear come very close to the CT5 so I don't see a point in having both.

the delay sounds like a fork in the garbage disposal if the clock knob is below 11:00 or so. not that it's a bad thing, but not a great option if it's your only delay

I personally think they compliment each other nicely. CT5 in either of the loop modes into Mood is awesome!

Yeah for any 'usable' delay sounds you definitely don't want to dive into the low clock rates. Lots of weird artifacts and clock noise. Definitely not a bad thing in my book, but agree you wouldn't want that as your only delay

The Mood can do 16 seconds of delay but at extremely low fidelity. Kind of sounds like shit down there but could be cool once in a while.

ok, thanks. How is the noise floor of the loops and the pedal in general?

At higher clocks rates great.

how translate higher clock rates to seconds (approximately)?

Higher clock settings equal very short delay time. A second or less?

Have you seen any of the video demos? I highly recommend it before purchasing.

Fairly short. According to the manual:
Clock - This single knob is a global control for the clock that controls the recording and playback for each channel. Sample rate is half the value of the clock. In addition, this knob controls the recorded loop time on the 0 channel. 64k = .5s, 48k = .75s, 32k = 1s, 24k = 1.5s, 16k = 2s, 12k = 3s, 8k = 4s, 6k = 6s, 4k= 8s, 3k = 12s, 2k = 16s.

So if you want a 1.5s delay, you're at a 12kHz sample rate. Anything less than that definitely starts introducing quite a bit of noise. If you're looking for a hi-fi, long delay/looper, this isn't for you.
