Dwarfcraft has always built wild and adventurous pedals. Their up-and-coming Memento pedal is just as nuts as their famous bit-crunching, sequencing, pitch-shifting Pitchgrinder, and their ring-modulating, power-starving Hax!
Ben, from Dwarfcraft, came through 5starr Sound Labs while in town for the 2014 NAMM show to give us an exclusive on this pedal he has been designing for the future. Armed with only a kill switch (which is only active when depressed), and a recall switch (which plays back the kill switch’s pattern), the Memento is essentially a gated pattern effect that allows you to make up your own patterns on the spot. Dwarfcraft’s Memento is coming out later this year, but I know, after watching this video, you will be jumping on getting your preorder. Ignore how simple it is: there is nothing like this pedal!
The ability to transform like a DJ has always appealed to me, and now with this pedal you can do so much of that with a box at your feet, instead of with the pick up switch on your instrument. It is one funky pedal and I am going to use it to the fullest extreme!
