NAMM 2020: Pittsburgh Modular Lifeforms Cascading Delay Network
Pittsburgh Modular’s Lifeforms Cascading Delay Network stitches together 4 delay units in new and interesting ways.
Lifeforms Cascading Delay Network
It features four delay units strung together with an integrated Modulation Router. Each delay can go up to 6ooms although you can tweak it up to 2.8s but anything over 600ms will start to degrade the signal. They’ve used a different chip inside to the Analog Delay Unit which enables them to have a longer time. They are based on a PT2399 chip (often found in guitar pedals) which, apparently, is an analogue as you can get while still being digital which allows them to chain 4 together and keep the noise floor under control. But it’s all designed to work just like the Analog Delay Unit.
There are 5 cascade modes which chain the delays together differently and provide different delay paths and feedback possibilities. This is a huge amount of delay and sounds like a load of fun.
Check out this video for a good description of the cascade modes and what it’s all about.
The price will be $549 and should ship in about 6 weeks.
