 Vintage Reel-to-Reel Tape, Echo, and Stutter

The Cutting Room Floor has been updated and now has separate controls over the saturation of the input signal and tape delay signal. With this change, it’s possible to have any amount of emulated tape saturation on the input signal and an adjustable tape delay level.

Housed in a smaller, compact footprint, the Cutting Room Floor V3 provides beautifully marred saturated tape tone and ethereal repeats. Imagine an abandoned factory with a fluttering tape machine left on infinite replay.

The Cutting Room Floor was designed to emulate the sound and functionality of vintage reel-to-reel tape overdrive and echo. This pedal reaches into the 21st century with characteristics that traverse the world of modulation and delay. Other features include a freeze button that traps a tone while still playing, and expression/CV control for time.

TAPE LEVEL Controls how hard the dry signal hits tape. Turning clockwise will increase drive and volume.

DELAY LEVEL Controls the level of tape delay DELAY TIME Controls delay time FLUTTER Controls level of tape flutter, to be used in conjunction with Wow

SHAPE Controls shape of the flutter, from triangle to square wave

WOW Controls level of melting modulation

S/R Single or repeat modes for delay signal

STABIL Up position turns Flutter on, down position turns Flutter off

FREEZE Momentary loop playback head. This mode alters the behavior of the Delay Level function and sets 12 O’clock as zero. Rotating to the left models characteristics of Ampex 456 tape. Rotating to the right models characteristics of Ampex 499 tape.

BYPASS True bypass switching turns the effect on and off

3.5MM SIDE JACK Adds expression pedal or CV functionality, controlling delay time

Unpredictable fluttering butterflies

My favorite tape delay, the wow and flutter are organic and they don't predictably repeat unlike other algorithms I've worked with. It can sound a completely bleached and mangled tape that's been beaten half to death and the hiss is actually pleasant rather than a nuisance. For those looking for a genuine reproduction in digital form, this is a great option.

Sweet Lo-fi Machine

Great pedal for adding a bit of lofi flavor to guitar, bass, keys, etc. While you can get some pretty extreme glitchy effects, I like the more subtle warble you can get at lower WOW and Flutter settings. I used it mainly on guitar but recently ran my Yamaha Reface CP (electric piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer models) through it, and it really lends a lovely lo-fi warmth to the sounds. My only minor frustration is that the delay is difficult to dial in with only one dedicated knob on the pedal. I usually keep it set pretty low so it's not a big issue. Great pedal overall!

Great lofi modulation

This is a great lofi/glitchy/tapey pedal. It has a lot of range where it's easy to degrade the heck out of the sound. Really love the freeze footswitch to take it even further to the next level. YMMV but, my only (remotely) negative is I've found it's been difficult for me to really dial in, sometimes I find it doing too much and sometimes not enough, but still playing around with it, and definitely an awesome pedal to have in the chain.
