I’m new to the forum and consider buying a MOD Duo. Browsing the plugin gallery I found quite a lot of useful stuff for trimming down my extended rig to only a MOD Duo.
Only thing I am missing is a plugin for automatic feedback elimination (aka anti feedback or feedback destroyer). As a VST plugin there is “Elly Minator” (formerly known as “Howly Shit” for example. But does anybody know, if such a plugin exists in the LV2 world? Or would be able to build one?
Background: I play electric bass and acoustic upright bass in a big band in an acoustic soul combo. For the electric I use some compression, and for solos chorus and/or reverb. The acoustic upright is a bit more complicated. Here I mainly use a low cut filter, slight compression and parametric eq. Depending on the venue and the volume level feedback problems sometimes get massive; as a last rescue on that occasions I use the anti-feedback feature of a Zoom A3 or a Behringer Shark - which both certainly degrade the sound of the bass, but help to keep things going smooth.
With it’s two inputs the MOD Duo seems to be ideal to run both instruments through one box and set up suitable pedalboards for each. So it seems I could trim down my zoo of boxes and save some carrying effort
I just got my MOD DUO today, and have spent all afternoon and evening with it. I’ve made some killer tones. But every time I get into a high gain distortion effect the screeching, the crackling… all the feedback noise… it’s just unbelievable. I’ve owned 3 different guitar multi-effects pedals and I’ve never experienced feedback noise like this. I’ve been through all of the amp and cabinet emulators, all of the distortion effects, I’ve dried dozens of combinations and I can’t get rid of the incessant high pitched feedback. Super disappointing.
I’ve had a number of not-so-great issues with this. I really want to like it, but I don’t have time to mess around and wait for updates or improvements.
