Anyone case to decode this?
That has to be the most terrifying demo I've ever seen!
That's a really unfortunate place for the stomp switch... amiright?
ALSO - I really want this pedal! Huge J-Rock fan. Ha.
Before the Korg, this used to be my nominee for weirdest ever...
I have one of these
Don't forget ET's favorite pedal...
The Phone Tone by Fuchs/Plush
I'm sure they knew EXACTLY what they were doing...
The Korg web site says it is available in certain countries only. I'm into K-Pop, myself.
NO doubt! I seriously cracked up over this review from Peter Kern at createdigitalmusic:
I had heard of the "karaoke girl" vocal synthesizer pedal but not heard it played or described...
"You’re not hallucinating. This is a stomp box that adds a Japanese robot woman singing along as you play. If you’ve heard the now-popular Vocaloid effect, this is that, in a stompbox.
Just how Japanese is this product? Let us count the ways. First, let’s just quote the product text:
Hatsune Miku sings when you play your guitar! A design that fuses the worlds of Hatsune Miku and guitar effects. Nearly unlimited possibilities; 11 lyric patterns are provided. Lyrics for “Senbonzakura” (a Japanese song) are preset. An iPhone app for entering lyrics is available, so you can make MIKU STOMP sing your original lyrics.
This all uses the latest Yamaha engine to make the sounds – “she” sings along to your actual playing.
There’s a knob for different vocal modes. And yes, there’s a Nyan mode. (Rejoice!)
Random 1, random 2
Phrase 1, 2, 3
You can also use an iPhone app to add your own lyrics – though I’m all for adding Senbonzakura to your set list – enter them via your pickup, and cue your new robot lead vocalist with your foot.
Ah, yes – about those lyrics. This feature is slightly less accessible if you’re an English speaker. I’ll let KORG explain:
"Although this iPhone app can be used with an English system, MIKU STOMP’s vocal functionality supports only Japanese. While it does not support input of English lyrics, it does support input of “romaji,” the method of using the Latin alphabet to express Japanese. When entering Japanese directly, “hiragana” and “katakana” input are supported."
So we better start brushing up on our Japanese
I have no idea what it is. But I want one!
I use Japan Discoveries for stuff like this... If they get a couple, I'll order one up.
I used to worry about the zombie apocalypse...and now this comes along!
Don't forget the Total Sonic Annihilation by Death By Audio
Hard to beat the WMD Geiger Counter.
A friend of mine was given what was described to him as the "world's worst pedal." He passed it on to me.
I wouldn't call that description completely unfair.
Might put it on my board as a ruse.
A really hilarious of the Korg Miku:
Don't use the scat setting
Diederich Electronics Junk Box Lo Fi Guitar Pedal Strange Noisemaker!:
The comments are hilarious!
god bless the japanese
... I want one
this is that pedal you buy, leave in the box unused, and wait two decades so you can be that hipster that uses it.
