Catalinbread Bicycle Delay

The nature of the experience depends almost entirely on set and setting. Approach each knob with an open mind. Listen to what the Bicycle Delay has to say.

The Bicycle Delay was something like an “Albert Hoffman moment” (to quote a good friend and guitarist Neal Casal). I sat down with no plan of where I was going but to allow myself the freedom to be open to wherever the journey took me and just document the experience. Really a strange path to travel when it involves something as cerebral as programming software. Or maybe it’s not. Maybe that’s a pure form of creativity, to use the boundaries something so matter of fact as programming as a medium for art? The result was a pedal as autobiographical as any I have been involved in. The Bicycle Delay is a physical manifestation of the experience of consciousness, letting go of the desire to control everything, and maintaining a positive attitude to leave room for a positive experience.

THE CONTROLS IN DETAIL

LUCIDITY

[WET/DRY MIX]
Yin and Yang. There is a balance. The weight of each side is symbiotic and ever changing.

REFLECT

[NUMBER OF REPEATS; FROM ONE REPEAT TO SELF OSCILLATION]
Envision a staircase. REFLECT determines the number of steps in the staircase. Each step climbs or falls depending on MOOD.

RADIANCE

[REPEATS FILTER]
Darkness or light. Dulled or sharpened. You can find opacity or clarity here.

MOOD

[DETERMINES DIRECTION AND VELOCITY OF THE PITCH SHIFT OF THE REPEATS]
MOOD determines the steepness of the staircase. Tailspin or ascending a thermal? Sometimes it's hard to tell. Even at the center there is chaos in the tranquility. Embrace it.

EXPANSE

[DELAY TIME]
Where is the focus? Inward, close at hand? Or gazing outward at a far away horizon in the mind's eye? Somewhere in between? Your journey can be as short or as long as you care to make it. Take your time.

Speak and listen. There is opportunity and consequence to what you bring to the conversation. The quiet voice brings calm, reasoned responses; the bombastic can incite a strong reaction you did not anticipate. Many voices create a cacophony, the lone voice is heard clearly. Each can foster harmony or discord depending on what is being communicated. But always listen...

POWERING UP THE BICYCLE DELAY

You can power your Bicycle Delay with any quality power supply designed for use with effects pedals. The output should be a negative tip DC from 9 to 18 volts. The Bicycle Delay does not run on batteries. If you want more volume, headroom, and percussive attack, try running an 18 volt power supply. A 9 volt power supply will have a slightly softer sound that saturates more easily
