CSIDMAN Hits Shelves May 23!

A skippy, glitchy CD delay? You heard that right-t-t. Catalinbread has a history of turning your favorite stack into compact, portable boxes. So why CSIDMAN? Like many effects and classic sounds, they were only discovered because of technical limitations of the time. With the CSIDMAN we belive we’re honoring that tradition. We pushed our own abilities in developing this pedal, and we’re challenging you to pus your creative boundaries!

Digital is the CSIDMAN’s aesthetic: as a delay pedal, it strives to reproduce echoes as true to the input as possible without filtering. When you utilize its scratched disc, stuttery, and glitchy behaviors, it is pseudo-random, yet gives you a certain amount of “control” over the randomness.

Watch our demo video for an idea of how this CD skip beast sounds!

Controls In Detail

MIX: Gives you control over the wet/dry balance from 100% wet to 100% dry.

FEED: Controls the amount of feedback going back into the unit.

CUTS: (used in conjunction with the LATCH knob) controls the sample rate, the relative speed that the CSIDMAN skips.

LATCH: Controls the relative time in a cycle that the CSIDMAN is in a latching skipping state. When full counterclockwise, it doesn’t skip, allowing you to use the pedal as a traditional digital delay. When full clockwise, the unit is stuck repeating whatever is in the memory address. At noon, this knob is a 50/50 balance (though random) between a skip-playback state and non-skip sample state.

TIME: Controls the echo delay line’s delay time up to 725mS.
