Hologram's INFINITE JETS and DREAM SEQUENCE form a steady foundation on which to creative new noises with a decidedly low-fi essence. While cleaner sounds are certainly possible, the urge to invent forms that thrive on dirt seems the probable result of this electrical entanglement.. A single note fed in to the above can be sampled, sequenced, and modulated with an eyes towards oblivion. In other words, these pedals seem perfect for non-pitch oriented practitioners.

I recently decided that I'd create a modulation chain from my Critter & Guitari KALEIDOLOOP so I could morph audio samples (mostly word phrases) into incomprehensible gibberish or revelatory significance. Even brutalist noise would be a welcome outcome. To this end Death by Audio's ECHO DREAM 2 was joined to that manufacturer's ROBOT. The Robot is another lo-fi modulation pedal that transposes pitch and arpeggiates with no manners whatsoever. It turns voice samples into screaming noise, and that's certainly a good thing.

Death By Audio’s ECHO DREAM 2 is a delay pedal whose secrets can take you from dreamy bliss to degraded lo-fi fuzz. Coupled with my Critter & Guitari KALEIDOLOOP, language can be mangled into random revelations and stuttered stick-talk. Fun.
