Old Blood Noise Endeavors Float is their latest parallel signal processor. This is also their first digitally controlled analogue pedal. Float has two independently controllable filters and extensive possibilities for movement. With the two filters in tandem, stereo movements, linked reactive elements and modulations can be created. Matching harmonious tremolo and phaser effects, as well as classic filter sounds.

The all-new Old Blood Noise Endeavors Float is perfect for experimental music. This digitally controlled analogue effect offers dual processing via two independent filters. What really makes it stand out is the range of stereo movements and modulation tones which can evoke harmonic tremolo and phaser-style effects.
This dual effect layout is similar to the recently revamped Alpha Haunt. I’m also really liking the way it entices you to tweak and get creative.
The dual filters contain all the usual controls you would expect, including volume, filter type, cutoff frequency, resonance, LFO rate, envelope sensitivity and LFO shape with 6 LFO shapes on offer. The cutoff control has a nice easy to manipulate slider for each filter section, making it easy to tweak live during a performance. Then there are two central mini switches labelled Sync On/Off and Min/Max. The former syncs the LFO or envelope of the filters, and then the Min/Max switch is used to sculpt the LFO and envelope range of the effect.
I love the way OBNE makes effects that encourage musicians to experiment and become even more creative. I’m pretty sure that if you watch the demo videos below you will find something that will inspire you. The Float is certainly the type of effect that could be used to kick start a new song idea. Mixing an analogue circuit with a digital control really does give you the best of both worlds. A neat design and one I can see being very popular with musicians everywhere.
