Using the DB-01 for live dronescapes

video upload by Richard DeHove

"A simple way to perform live ambient dronescapes with the DB-01. Here I just use the DB-01 with a Strymon Timeline on the pattern delay setting. Ideally I would have changed the Timeline pattern but the delay can't handle the transition and completely cuts out. For a more 'hands-free' performance you could switch the LFO to 'sample and hold' and give it a little filter modulation for interesting filter echoes. Or put a few more steps into the DB-01 pattern and switch playback mode to 'random'. If there's any interest I'll do a part 2 for more techniques. The on-screen display is showing the left & right channels of the DB-01.
