An Igor footcontroller works great with other pedals too – not just the Dr Freakenstein. (With a 1/4″ jackplug on it… Email to specially request).
Really great to have two pedals in the upcoming Deli Stompbox Ehibit in Brooklyn NY this coming 19th and 20th of October!
Go along and check out the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz and the Air Traffic Controller in person…
The Dr FF will be on the ‘distortion’ pedalboard, and the ATC on ‘other’ (which it most certainly is).

Their notes often have hardly any attack – a finger-pluck compared with a guitar’s plectrum-strummed chord.
The notes can last a very, very…. very long time.
The notes are often very low too.
The first two observations were a mild surprise to me…
When you tap once the ‘record’ LED comes on. Tap again, and it goes out; you’ve set the tempo.
Then – if it drifts out of time – you tap again and the tap tempo chip takes the difference between where it was going to pulse, and where you corrected it, and divides that by the number of beats since the original programming, and adds (or subtracts) the from the programmed time!
Then it makes that the new tempo – and continues from where that one correcting tap was!!
It’s a clever thing.
Of course you can tap it as many times as you want to correct it. Four in a row? Seven? Sporadic bursts? Whatever – it just loves to do maths!
Have a look at the Minor Concussion’s amazing tap tempo in action here. Recorded while playing through a Solasound Tonebender for distortion.
