    What Do Bleak District Electric Say?

    Get the wobbly, disjointed, decidedly un-hifi sound of recording to cassette. Without the need to record to cassette. Or record at all!

    The unique, dynamic vibrato responds to your playing strength and can get fairly extreme if you want. Adjust the 'Sensitivity' control to dial in the intensity of it's response, from subtle to almost complete tape stop!

    Adjust the character control to give you anything from clean and jangly, to saturated and wooly tones. It changes the response of the tape saturation and tone circuits in one go, making it really easy to dial in the kind of cassette vibe you're after.

    'Tape Return' controls the amount of emulated signal going to the output. This is the overall volume of the effect if no dry signal is present.

    Switch your dry signal in or out of the mix. With dry signal killed you get the pure tape emulation and dynamic vibrato. Switch the dry signal in and you open up a whole load of other, 'wider' tones. Double-tracking and chorus a plenty but with all the variation of the different character settings, and of course sensitive to what is being played.

    If you're interested in lowering your fidelity, look no further.
