RAINGER FX CUSTOM MINI-PEDAL HOUSING – NARROWER THAN STANDARD MINI-PEDALS, ALL SOCKETS ON THE TOP END PANEL!
The Bleep is the most fun, most out-there pedal in the Rainger FX line! It’s a compilation of various sounds from the range of Dwarf pedals recently discontinued, but in a more usable format. Using the same full-on fuzz circuit from the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz pedal, it has more low-end, the LFO speed is adjustable on-the-fly, and the chip-destablising ‘bleep’ facility is now accessible via a front panel knob.
The ‘overtone’ is controlled by knob, LFO, or Igor controller. With Igor plugged in, the Bleep is highly controllable while you’re actually playing – no huge-and-heavy expression pedal needed. The dual-sensitivity pressure pad in effect adjusts the ‘Overtone’ knob, or the LFO speed. The built-in noise gate is always in operation, ensuring the pedal is totally silent when there’s no signal; that means zero background hiss – at whatever volume you’re playing at.
The green-on-green LED display changes with every new phrase you play – or every bleep, graphically showing what’s going on in a truly mesmerising fashion.
This pedal covers a wide palette of sounds, from hard chunks of uncompromising fuzz, to edgy lead tones that are guaranteed to cut through a mix. The sustain can morph into robot alarm sounds, the signal degrading into rhythmical proto-synthy pulses, their pitch actually playable in real time. With the LFO on, the ‘overtone’ is automatically modulated to produce a slowly scything tonal movement – like an extreme phaser, and with the ‘Bleep/Fuzz’ knob and Igor pressed the speed ramps up, moving into psychotic chirping like some fiendish arcade game…
Igor is a pressure sensitive control pad – a small expression pedal 55mm wide with no moving parts. It’s dual sensitivity; use it shiny side up on a hard stage or standing up, and rubber side up in you’re sitting down or barefoot. Or use it by hand. If you’ve had enough of lugging around treadle-operated expression pedals, this will be a breath of fresh air!
