Jefferey Kunde Disaster Area Designs

  • Disaster Area Controllers

Here is a excerpt from Jeffrey’s blog: When GoodWood was building my board, they recommended that i get involved with the Disaster Area to get my board operating easily and fluently.  What we ended up using was the DMC-6D and the DPC-8EZ to control the entire pedal board.  This ended up requiring Disaster Area to build me my own personal firmware for each pedal, so that each pedal is customized to work exactly how I want them to.  The DPC-8EZ operates the right half of the board, acting as a normal true bypass looper pedal (swithing effects on and off, and bypassing them when not in use).  The DMC-6D operates the Timeline and the BigSky together, with global bank up and down buttons, and pre set switches for each of the Strymon pedals.  (Check out the video demo below of the set up).

The cool part of these pedals is how they work together.  First let me say that i treat each bank of the timeline and bigsky like a song, and each pre set in each bank as a different setting for that song.  Lets say the song is “Fire Fall Down”.  I would store the tempo and delay setting for that song on bank 01 of the Timeline, on pre sets A and B ( 2 delay pre sets per song) and the reverb setting for “Fire Fall Down” would be on back 01 of the BigSky (pre sets A and B, 2 reverb settings per song).  Any time I que up a “bank” on the DMC-6D, it also pulls up pre set 1 on that same bank over on the DPC-8EZ, giving me 4 programmable dry effect settings for that particular song.  This makes playing live much more fluent for me.  I just pull up a bank on the DMC, and boom, all my delay, reverb and dry effect settings pop on and I’m ready to play without having to push down any other pedals.  Like i said, this is better shown on video than explained in words, so check out the video demo below.
