A quick demo of the Morpheus DropTune pitch-dropping pedal, using the main riff from Dream Theater's 'Lie' as an example.
During the time I had the DropTune for review, a firmware update was released, so I was able to try it out both before and after the update. It was pretty cool to be able to hear the product in development like this. Before the update there was a slight muddiness to the notes and a little bit of noticeable latency. After the update the latency was greatly reduced and the notes sounded a little punchier. Heres a little recording I whipped up, using Dream Theaters Lie as an example. Here's what you'll hear after the count-in:
Bar 1: Panned hard left - riff on the B string (no Morpheus) Bar 2: Panned middle - riff on the E string (Morpheus set to drop 5 semitones, before the firmware upgrade) Bar 3: Panned hard right - riff onthe E string (Morpheus set to drop 5 semitones, after the firmware upgrade) Bar 4-8: Panned left - riff on Be string (no Morpheus). Panned right - riff on E string (Morpheus after firmware upgrade)
Then there's a little solo, still using the Morpheus dropped down 5 semitones.
