4 banks of samples that can be triggered in variety of ways based on how they are labeled. Play a sound once, have it loop, or play a series of loops in linear order or in a random manner and create a sonically chaotic tapestry. You decide your own sonic reality.
*The pedal requires an 9DVC ISOLATED POWER SUPPLY. Using a daisy-chain type supply will result in excessive noise/hum.
The Simulacrum is a USB Sound Recorder device with a built in Active Buffer for guitar pass-through. It is on immediately when plugged in, like a conventional looper. It allows a user to copy WAV and OGG files from their computer (via USB) into 4 onboard banks with a total of 16mb of memory. You can then trigger these sounds via footswitch, while your guitar signal passes though un-effected.
The Simulacrum is a digital pedal. It is prone to noise if plugged into to a multiple power supply that isn’t isolated. Therefore, it is a requirement that if you plan on using the Simulacrum on a pedalboard you either, 1. Make sure you power it via a known isolated power supply. Most Voodoo Labs supplies are isolated. The Truetone 1Spot with daisy chain cable is not. 2. The other option is to simply use the provided supply. It will thereby be isolated from any other power supplies.
The other important caveat is that the Simulacrum supports 44.1KHz 16-bit stereo. You can save 24-bit files to the Simulacrum, but they will not play. It’s important when saving files that you run them through a program like Audacity. You can then Export them in the correct format. The Simulacrum will not play MP3, only WAV or OGG.
WAV files are the industry standard non-compressed audio format. The 16mb Simulacrum can store about 3 minutes of Wav files. At first glance, this may seem like a tiny amount, but remember, in most applications you’re triggering short loops that may only last a few seconds each. The compressed format, OGG, can support up to 15 minutes of audio. The Simulacrum is a Mono pedal. It’s recommended that you save files in Mono, not Stereo. This will also increase the number of files you can save.
