Video: Dedalo ALU9 Aliaser Demo

Today, Andy is checking out a newer pedal from Argentinian pedal company Dedalo called the ALU9 Aliaser. The Aliaser is a modulation pedal that samples incoming audio at 9 bits via its internal u-controller, generating sample rate reduction at super low values, resulting in glitchy, highly manipulated tones.

This "aliasing" effect is also sometimes known as downsampling or redux because the lower the sample rate, or the higher the frequencies present in the sound, the more dramatic the effect. Users can modify the sample rate in two different modes: one, by using the low-frequency numerical oscillator (which generates arpeggios based on the alias tones) or two, through the trigger (which generates an alias change every time it detects a new note).

Each mode can be set randomly, adding obscurity to your modulation, and users can use the control, level, depth, alias, sequence, and rate controls to further refine and dial in their tones. As a bonus Easter egg, the ALU9 Aliaser also features a hidden mode that users will have to grab the pedal to find out more about.
