Jon Carin is an American producer, artist and musician, best known for his association with Pink Floyd and, more specifically, its guitarist David Gilmour and former member Roger Waters.
This is his view on the Vibe Machine:
“Anyone who knows their Univibes, knows it’s an incredibly difficult sound to replicate. I’ve spent a lot of time around vintage ones, and my ear is quite tuned into what I like about the best ones I’ve heard. The Vibe Machine is my favorite recreation. On top of achieving the chewy, very physical sound, it seems to keep the integrity of the instrument’s tone. All of the time & effort they put into the compact design, photocells and tweakability is evident.
I’m enjoying mine very much!.”
His view on the Unit67:
“I’m absolutely loving the Unit 67. I’m using it on my lap steel on the Us & Them Tour In Breathe, Great Gig In The Sky, Wish You Were Here, Deja Vu etc. I’m really enjoying how I can dial in the EQ, compression & boost in one place. Wonderful for slide.”
His thoughts about the Module 4
“I think I may use compression in a very different way from how I believe most people do.
Maybe I’m wrong.
I like lots of it, but not on the attack.
The most important qualities I listen for are…
1) the integrity of the signal
2) a lack of makeup ramp
3) the signal seems to get much bigger rather than sounding squashed
4) versatility-I use a wide range of instruments, so it has to have a lot of adaptability & tweakability
5)personality-I don’t want transparency, I like it to have grab and its own sound
DryBell’s Module 4 is all of those things and more.
Yes, it can do Orange Squeezer brilliantly, but so much in addition.
I highly recommend it.
I really love this pedal.
I’ll definitely be using it on our upcoming European tour.”
