Unlike regular gappers, this one comes with a butterworth bandpass filter (based on Joachim’s awesome Tethys filter I believe). Instead of just removing the sound completely, it bandpasses the sound to produce the gapping effect. This can be used to make some cool effects, and making the sound livelier. In other words, this is a filter gapper.
Instead of predefined chopping patterns like we have seen in some other buzz gapper effects, this one is controlled by the pattern, so you are totally in charge. You can adjust both the attack and length of the gapping effect, as well as filter frequency and filter bandwidth. It also comes with the ability to reverse sound for each gap.. (Guess you just need to try it).
It's fairly easy to use. Just experiment 2-3 minutes with the pattern and frequencies, and you should get the idea.
I haven't seen the doc's, so I don't know if Joachim wrote em yet?
If you are looking for an interesting gapper, or just a way to make your strings or whatnot more interesting, I highly recommend this one.
