Totally Wycked Audio LD-01 Little Dipper Vocal Format Filter
Totally Wycked Audio, godlyke.com
If the LD-01 Little Dipper pedal did nothing but light up the constellation of blue LEDs on its metallic blue body, it would probably still be on our list of cool new gear. But, of course, Totally Wyked Audio’s flagship pedal does much more. The basis of the effect is a vocal formant filter—which can mimic vowel sounds—under control of an envelope. Based on a classic circuit from the Seventies, the design has been updated with improved tracking, fuller frequency response and a lower noise floor. Three uniquely named controls—Ascension, Inclination and Diffraction—let you determine how the Little Dipper affects your sound, allowing you to emulate talk boxes and phasers, and even morph notes into a stream of gurgling or murmuring vocal-like tones.
Created by Godlyke Distribution, the Little Dipper pedal is the first of what Godlyke promises will be a line of unusual, but useful, effect pedals from its new Totally Wyked Audio brand. This much is certain: it’s the coolest new stomp box this side of the Milky Way.
