How your synth would sound in the post-apocalypse [Fairfield Circuitry Roger That]

video upload by Jameson Nathan Jones

"Fairfield Circuitry sent me their new pedal, Roger That to check out, and it's really......something. After the initial shock and urge to burry it in my backyard wore off, I started to think of actual ways I could tame it. The results were surprising (hint: a Moog Matriarch always helps).

"An exploration of Fairfield Circuitry's newest release: Roger That. Roger That is a crazy little modulator/demodulator pedal that can be subtle or can tear a hole in the fabric of the universe.

HEALTH DISCLAIMER: This demo gets pretty loud and will expose you to some intense upper-spectrum audio. Please listen at a safe and reasonable volume and take breaks if needed."

See the dealers on the right for availability.

"Fully embracing sputtery and bizarre artifacts, Fairfield Circuitry's Roger That is a distortion pedal inspired by FM radio transmitters and receivers—and all of the noise that comes along with them. The core of Roger That is a simple JFET preamp, but by then including an FM modulator and demodulator circuit, the pedal becomes an interactive sonic playground with a wide range of sounds to be uncovered in every corner. The basic controls include Dry and Wet levels, Drive for the preamp circuit, and a Tune control for dialing in the FM character. Roger That is highly responsive to audio input, so different sources will yield very different results. For more variety you can explore Shift to destablize the tracking of Tune, select between two different Tuning ranges via the R switch, or apply a bandpass filter with F. Tune also features a CV input to be externally controlled by modular synthesizers or other control voltage sources. Get into the noisier side of life with Fairfield's Roger That.
