Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai

Digital Delay/Looper
It's a looper, it's a multi-tap delay, it's an echo with reverse...its got all the Hazarai.

The Stereo Memory Man is a real time performance tour de force. As a Looper it has up to a full 30 seconds of loop time. World class echoes with modulation and reverse are just a few of the choices. The Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai is destined to be one of the most creative instruments you will ever own. Ethereal tone-scapes to full musical performances are only limited by your imagination. And it's all in stereo.

EHX EFFECTOLOGY
Mr. Effectology, Bill Ruppert, pays homage to the Pink Floyd creation, “On the Run,” a track from their 1973 album, The Dark Side of the Moon.

Here is a quick tip on how to get a realistic, chimey 12-string guitar sound using the EHX HOG Harmonic Octave Generator. Using the expression pedal in step-bend mode, slightly detune the HOG. This leaves your original guitar signal unaltered while adding a more realistic 12-string sound to the HOG. Add some delay using the Stereo Memory Man w/Hazarai placed after the HOG for ambiance and you’ll have all the jingle jangle you need!

Below is a demo video:

Timely Tone TIp for Changing Presets.

People have complained of having to bend down during a performance to change presets on units like the Stereo Memory Man/Hazarai, The Ring Thing, Voice Box and the Cathedral.

What many do not know is that these pedals were ergonomically designed to be controlled by your feet.

The white preset/mode knob is perfectly positioned to be operated by the side of your right foot.

Use the side of your foot to select the preset position. Then carefully tap straight down on the white knob to activate the preset.

With a little practice your feet will be in control. Then you’ll be able to keep your hands where they belong…on the guitar!

Check out this easy way to get a spectacular “over the top” overdrive sound.

The Muff Overdrive pedal by itself has a slightly dark, medium distorted sound. Perfect for vintage blues.

Adding a Soul Preacher pedal in front of the Muff Overdrive supercharges the sound, taking the overdrive to the next level.

Here’s why: The output of the Soul Preacher pedal is low impedance. This drives the Muff Overdrive harder while producing a more transparent top end.

Below is a demo video of the sound and settings for both pedals.

A Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai mod delay was used on the entire track

Here’s an easy way to get a sound reminiscent of the Smashing Pumpkins’ Siamese Dream album.

The effect chain consists of a Little Big Muff and Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai.

The Little Big Muff produces the harmonic grind while the Stereo Memory Man in the modulation mode produces a doubling and thickening of the sound.

The combination of these two effects produces a thick wall of sound using only one guitar.

The pedal settings are below:

The video below gives a quick example of the sound

#1 of a new series!

“Double your Memory Man, Double Your Fun.”

Here is a cool tip to double the power of your Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai.

The Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai has two identical processors built within it. One processor is used for the left channel and the other for the right channel.

You can patch the two processors in series by running the unit in mono and using a simple patch cable to connect the left output to the right input.

Having one processor run directly into another produces double the chorus modulation effect as well as double the reverb density and even doubled repeats in the multi-tap delay function.  (Double repeats in a multi-tap delay can produce great synthesizer sequencer effects.)

Give it a try.  We think you will love the lush chorus, dense reverb and extra effects!
