With identical machines it's tempting to play them as a stereo pair. Hard panning left and right with different sounds gives an interesting 1960s-style separation, although it can be offputting in headphones without a little stereo field "smoothing". For that I used the Zen delay in tape ping-pong mode and the Boss RV-6 stereo reverb. I was also keen to show the DB-01s playing "nice" lead sounds.
Starts off with both DB-01s on 32-step patterns. I then play the right-side unit in arp mode 1-octave with 90% gate. By not holding the notes down the entire time you allow the underlaying pattern to poke through every now and then which can add variation (nad in this case some percussive effect) depending on how each section is played. The DB-01s percussion sounds also appear to sound almost uniterupted because of the delay, despite playing the arp and overriding the pattern.
The second time around both units are in arp mode, with the left-side unit on a 10% gate. I also switch on the Zen's overdrive. I took down the volume of the overdrive section in the DAW since it adds a big boost. But there are absolutely no effects on the sound other than what you see.
The patterns include quite a lot of pitchmod notes, accents and a little filter mod - almost a "Perkons-lite" style. (I'm really looking forward to that machine - even if it is blue. I'm convinced it shares quite a bit of sound-engine design with the DB-01).
You can hear the uneffected "dry" sound at the very end.

I love reading comments and on a recent video "Alfie John" commented on the lack of 303-style Acid demos for the DB-01. That sounded like a challenge to me so here's my attempt. The title of this video "DB-01 does acid" is very definite but whether the sound is really acid I leave up tp you. There's also the question of whether the DB-01, with its Polvoks filter, can achieve an "authentic" acid sound in place of the 24db LPF on the 303. And of course someone who actually composes acid music would surely get closer than I have here.

Assuming that you've got past all these excuses and actually like the sound, here are a few relevant points on recreating it:
- Both envelopes are on zero. This is especially important for the Amp envelope.
- The LFO is on S&H tempo sync on and set to 1 (for slight variation on every hit)
- The pattern itself has various gate times from 20 to 100
- The Env amount must be low otherwise it'll overwhelm the bandpass filter
- The Arp control that I manually change is the gate length
- I always have a cable from the CV out to the cutoff CV in to provide tracking
Other settings should be reasonably clear from the video.

Another recent comment (on the One pattern, 20 sounds video) said that all the DB-01 sounds were terrible because they were distorted. In that case I can expect an even more disappointed comment here :D

And another recent comment said they preferred the sounds without effects - but here I've added delay to almost the whole thing :/ My excuse for that is I just bought the DM-2W delay and I love it! It takes line level beautifully.

Finally, there is absolutely no further processing than what you see here, not even a master limiter.

In earlier tests the space echo seemed to be a little lacking in level on synth - not so on drums. The different modes change the whole feel quite dramatically. It's even better if you take it off a MIDI clock and allow a little 'slop' into the timing - it suddenly sounds a lot more spacey. And like the Zen delay, it can easily create the illusion of reverb without reverb. OTOH the space echo does have built-in reverb which I switch in and out here. I have it on the plate setting. I've also pushed up the maximum delay time to 2 seconds which you need to enable.
To avoid my blatherings start at 5:02 - there's no more taling after that.

On a recent video one comment said "Cool machine, but it only has one sound". The truth or otherwise of that here is in the ear of the beholder. With the very distinctive Polivoks filter and a single oscillator maybe every sound does sound a bit the same? And this is a bass synth after all. But to my ears there is a lot of difference. At the very least the different settings emphasize different parts of the pattern, in this case the pitchmod drum-like thumps and the noisy highs.
If you want to replicate any of these sounds make sure to connect the CV out to the filter CV in for the classic filter tracking effect. Without it the settings here will sound very different.
And yes, the Space Echo does add a whole extra layer on top, but it's reasonably subtle and the settings remains unchanged the whole way through. Am also thinking I should give the Space Echo a try on the LXR-02 - any votes for that?

Lots of knobs, lots of modes, lots of inputs and outputs, no mystery functions. There's plenty to like about the RE-202 Space Echo. The fact that it's designed as a "faithful recreation" of the old tape echo machine is largely irrelevant. What's important is whether it's a good delay that's fun to use and delivers what you need. What is somewhat strange is that for something called a "space echo" it doesn't do big whooshy space ambience. What it does deliver is sold, interesting pattern delays. For me its only failing is the lack of any stereo panning. But otherwise an excellent, solid machine that a lot of fun to twiddle. It's closest competitor imo is the Erica Synths Zen Delay.

A short death metal demo followed by a mini review of this amazing but flawed pedal. Amazing because it sounds so good, is true stereo in and out, and can be so many different machines. Flawed because the four-knob front-end is simply inadequate for the complexity and power in the app. OTOH if you've already bought into the Source Audio platform and have a Neuro hub then it'd make a lot more sense. In that case you could line up one or more presets per song and perform a set with this as one of the stars.
But as a standalone pedal, or operating it with just the pedal controls, it may not be such a happy experience.

This piece begun just as a test for the new RE-202 Space Echo but I liked the gritty feel so thought it might be interesting to share. The setup on the Vermona PerFourMer is the top two oscillators are on Channel 1 and playing the high part, each oscillator in panned hard left and right and play alternate notes. The bottom two are on Channel 2 playing bass and centered, also alternating. The MIDI file sometimes has more polyphony than the four oscillators can provide but I just let the machine figure that out :D Stereo output is going into the Space Echo.
The Space Echo is playing with it's saturation at about 40%, wow and flutter at about 25% with the reverb type changed to Plate at about 70%. Tempo is 74bpm. There's absolutely no other effects other than the PerFourMer and the Space Echo - no compression or EQ - only what you see.
The original MIDI file comes from here: https://www.kunstderfuge.com//satie.htm and is used with sincere thanks. The site has almost 20,000 MIDI files and is well worth subscribing.

A comparison of three drivey-distortiony pedals on a single pattern from the DB-01: the Source Audio Ultrawave; the Blackstar LT Metal; and the Darkglass B3K.
The synth pattern includes a few low pitch-mod thumps and it's interesting to note the changes in bass. I tried to keep the pedal sounds similar to get a good idea of the particular 'flavor' of the drives.
Of course the Ultrawave is capable of all sorts of extra goodness (full demo soon) but I thought it at least needed a bit of a stereo field considering full stereo is one of its main features. One slightly odd thing about the Ultrawave is that it won't work properly when placed after either of the other drives which is why I replug halfway through.
Happily, all three pedals take line level extremely well.

Just a fun little noodle using the OB-6's onboard distortion effect (set at 42). From there the output goes to the Strymon Zelzah and then to the Timeline, all in stereo. The Zelzah settings are as you see them on the unit and I swap sides and then layer both together. The arp is running at 90bpm with 16th notes on 'random' order. This gives an interesting variation in the sequence and, to my ears, makes it somehow hypnotic where the theme never changes yet the exact notes are always different. The Timeline is clock synced with the two delays on quarter notes and 3/4. I also found it interesting that the 'grit' amount on the Timeline actually has a noticeable effect on the OB-6 sound, whereas with the DB-01 it was 99% undetectable - strange.
Anyway, something a bit different from the usual sweet moody pads + huge reverb which the OB-6 so easily seduces you into playing.

The Ace of Spades by Motorhead is a classic song with interesting little twists and turns. I especially like the intro and just for fun I tapped out the sequence. One thing led to another and soon I had most of the song. Didn't get as far as the solo since to go that far would really deserve a full multitrack effort. As t is having just two notes leads to some hard choices - especially since the bass by itself plays a lot of power chords!
I would have liked to have shown the sequences as they played through but unfortunately by chaining patterns together you have to stay in pattern mode :(
The track was done in a single take using only what you see here plus a compressor on the lead synth in post just to even things out.

My favorite part of the Vermona to fiddle with are the LFOs. In this no-talking noodle I use each LFO to provide a rhythmic sequencer-style feel to the noddle - but there's no sequencer or arp involved. The unit is set to the D2 play mode. Oscillator one goes through the B3K overdrive; oscillator three goes through the phaser. The main stereo out goes through the Strymon Timeline on dual mode. The dual delay gives a somewhat weird stereo field and if this was an actual track release I'd probably rebalance the left-right weight. But I thought it was sort of interesting to leave things "1960s style" with an obvious bias.
The little tinkly high random-LFO shape bits are from oscillators two and four. Both of those are reacting to aftertouch on the Keystep-37 to activate. Oscillators one and three have aftertouch disabled.
Otherwise this is exactly as you see it: A one-take noodle with absolutely no other processing or tweaking of any kind.

While thinking how nice it would be to have a modulatable stereo filter it (belatedly) came to me that my two DB-01s could pretty easily simulate a single synth with a stereo filter. The DB-01s have just the right degree of simplicity to allow for easily matched parameters, and the LFO is ideal for in-sync stereo modulation. I kept the pattern absolutely basic just to concentrate on the stereo effect.
One interesting thing I did notice was how sensitive I suddenly became to tuning differences once I tried to match the two units. It took a good half hour for the units to warm up and be in tune. Until then one was about 4 cents out, the other about 1 cent. Insteda of being a trvial difference or even a nice "thickener" it just sounded off to me. Curiously one unit was also quieter than the other so to match them up one is on volume 60, the other on 83. Once warmed up though they were absolutely stable and what you see in the video is the units after being on for about three days :D
So with a little help from the Zen Delay (and some Omnisphere at the end) here's the result.

If you want to use a looper with drum machines and synths then it's imperative your looper be in perfect sync. For that you need it to be clocked and deliver a precise loop length and a start point in sync with all your other devices.
Happily the Strymon Timeline can do this easily when teamed with a sequencer. Record, start and stop commands (and others) can be delivered by MIDI note number. Here I'm using an Arturia Keystep-37 to send the commands to the Timeline which captures an audio loop from the DB-01. Even better, the process is absolutely seamless - and in stereo! This is something even many expensive dedicated looper pedals can't easily achieve.
Take things a step further and you can sequence all sorts of interesting audio manipulations using the looper function.
If you're impatient and just want the guts of the method, watch from 4:11 to 7:30.

Updating firmware is always a bore to be weighed against what new features might be gained. Version 1.3 is definitely worth the effort due to mnay bugfixes but especially (for me) for the much simplified oscillator tuning. Now when the coarse tuning displays a "0" it means you are in tune. So if you play a connected MIDI keyboard or controller it will play exactly the same pitch as the controller. Each increment is a semitone (as before) so +12 is one octave up; -12 is one down. A simple but very handy change.

Was enjoying some Dead Kennedys nostalgia listening when I thought "I wonder if I could get the DB-01 to chug like that?". After some extended noodling I decided to add some bass as well. Three patterns was just enough to muddle through the guts of the song.
So here's the result: two DB-01s playing Police Truck. It's not a 1:1 copy of the structure so you can't quite song along but I think the spirit is there.
I thought about adding drums and extra distortion but in the end I decided to leave it "pure" with just the DB-01s and exactly the effects you see. In fact the right-hand DB-01 doesn't even use the SpaceTime, just the EQ. Regular pitch-mod accents on the bass DB-01 give a hint of drums. The left-hand DB-01 is all played live (although I had to cheat slightly and chop up two takes) and goes through the EQ, B3K and DIG delay. Absolutely no further processing of any kind other than what you see - consequently it's all a bit raw and there's quite a bit of noise from the B3K, but this is an old punk classic after all. Let's Ride!

Ghost notes (or grace notes) are little extra hits or embellishments that add a subtle extra feel or layer. With the DB-01 the CV gate input and CV VCF inputs are perfect for this. Here I use the Fractio Solum by Noise Engineering to provide the gate signals. The LFO into the VCF CV is from the Erica Synths Drum Modulator dual LFO. Both are synced to the same clock as the DB-01. To give the programmed notes on the DB-01 a bit of extra initial envelope the internal LFO is set to reset with each note.
There are three audio examples. The effect is reasonably subtle so if you watch the actual notes on the timeline versus the audio "hits" then the ghost note effect is more obvious. You can also see the trigger light on the Fractio (the white cable) to see when the gate is firing. Pattern three has an odd 4/3 gate timing which produces somewhat off-beat hits.
I think the main value in the ghost notes is to create variations of standard patterns that can help maintain interest and movement. And they're fun to play with :D

I wanted a delay that I could control by manually setting a BPM rate. I have plenty of rate-knob delays, tap tempos delays and a a MIDI-clock controlled delay. But there's nothing like a full workstation-style delay where you can dial in a BPM rate. Unfortunately the X-Time isn't it. I was astonished to discover (and have confirmed by their support people) that you can't display BPM. The options are millseconds or time divisions of either a global set BPM or incoming clock.
That means the primary reason I bought this machine is lost. Of course the obvious answer is that I should have done my research a bit better. OTOH every complex workstation-style delay I've ever heard of can display BPM. Weird. Maybe it'll be addressed in an update.
In the meantime I thought there was still some value in watching a noob flub about with the different modes and also butchering some presets.
In short, this is not a performance machine, it's a preset machine. Craft your sound, store it, then recall it.
If delays were people then the Erica Synths Zen delay would be your wild but happy friend; the X-Time would be the grumpy uncle who works at Microsoft.

Firmware update 1.08 has suddenly made the DB-01 random pattern generator a whole lot better. It's now possible to "rotate sequence" - in other words, change the start point.

Two DB-01s are used to sequence the Vermona PerFourMer MkII. The bottom DB-01 is just a single note sequence sent to channels 3 (bass) and 4 (scream thing) which alternate. The top DB-01 is on random payback and triggers voice 2 which is low rumbly noise. This voice also has the SpaceTime pedal as an insert effect. Voice 1 is played by me on the little Korg keyboard. It uses the B3K pedal as an insert effect. The master stereo outs go direct into the Zen delay which has a good dose of overdrive. With an overdribe through an overdrive it has a bit of a noisefloor which headphones will reveal as soft soothing noise. No other effects or processing.

I was tempted to include the sounds of the DB-01 units, which fit rather well, but thought it was more useful to just have the P4 as the only sound source. Sometimes in demos I find it fristrating if there's too many machines playing since you never know what each machine is doing.

Instead of talking I used captions. Better or worse? Would love some feedback. Some people hate voiceover stuff even if it is a far faster than text and want the audio kept pure. Ob the other hand maybe captions are distracting?

Anyone on a quest for the perfect delay will eventually try a Strymon. There's a lot of choices but I settled on the DIG digital delay. It has most of the usualy features for a mid-to-high level delay such as tap, filter, and mono or stereo input. The dual-function knobs are a bit annoying, but bearable. Overall the unit has a really solid and sure feel. Here I'm testing it with the Erica Synths DB-01 synth, which it pairs with most happily.

Even with your favorite synth there's got to be something to gripe about. With the Vermona PerFourMer MkII I couldn't get over the brown knobs, so I replaced all 75 with black knobs. Since the Vermona already has a beautiful black faceplate that means it's now the "stealth edition". And any "stealth edition" synth obviously sounds different from a standard issue machine! So here it is grinding and howling along with guest spots from a Zen delay :)

This is a bit rough and I clearly don't know the controls too well. But I'm sure you know the excitement of getting a new bit of gear and hearing things fall out of it even though you're just fumbling about? It seemed a shame to let that pass by, so here it is: early days with the "Retro Mechanical Labs Hyde Distortion Filter and Electron Fuzz Custom CV Combo" - and yes, that's its actual name. The DB-01 output is split with one side going into the filter and the other into the fuzz. Left and right then go into separate sides of the Boss RV-6 reverb pedal. There's some limiting to avoid bad surprises but otherwise the audio is raw. That means there's some clicks, pops, squeals and grinding. I hope you find as much beauty in this raw mess of pain as I did.

The DB-01 is usually stuck in the bass realm, but simply driving a second synth by MIDI can add an entirely new feel to a bass sequence. Here the DB-01 is driving a Vermona PerFourMer MkII. The DB-01 is going through a Boss RV-6 reverb, the PerFourMer through the Erica Synths Zen Delay (which seems to suit it so well). The second DB-01 makes a tiny cameo appearance with an effect sound. No other effects or processing than what you see.
Although the DB-01 is very happy driving other synths via MIDI or CV, it is surprisingly unhappy driving a second DB-01. Not only could I not get one DB-01 to drive the other, using CV seemed to somehow corrupt the pitch and I had to do a complete unit reset.

When I explained to a friend that I was doing a Krell patch on the DB-01 they summed it up as: "Blips and bloops with added bass and distortion". That sort of hurt but actually seems quite accurate. The nature of a Krell patch is absolutely blips and bloops. At least using a DB-01 you avoid the next level of modular insult which is "a $10,000 fart machine".
On a more positive note, this little project does highlight that the DB-01 is a very fast and capable generative machine and an able sequencer.
(No other effects or processing of the sound other than what you see.)
