Strymon Mobius review and sound demo

It seems to me that during the first decade of the 21th century the digital guitar effect development has been mainly focusing on modeling technology and digital guitar effects are usually developed to emulate some specific analog effects. Only few manufacturers have pushed the boundaries beyond this point and used digital technology in more creative way to produced something totally new.

This line of development is of course mainly dictated by consumers and in general guitarists are probably pretty conservative when it comes to guitar gear and sounds. But luckily for us some companies, like Strymon, know how to go beyond emulating old vintage gear. Well, don't get me wrong here. Mobius can produce excellent emulations of sought after vintage pedals but most importantly it can also produce vast array of new interesting sounds.

Juri - Mulj EP

Here's a compilation of my old sketches and other strange recordings from 2006-2010. I had a massive hard drive backup error few months ago and all of my old recordings vanished. Luckily my mate Saine (who's an amazing artist..) had archived my old demos and sketches during the years and he kindly compiled and mastered this little EP for us. So, thanks a lot mate!
