What do you pair with the Deluge?


Hi All,

Just recently got my Deluge and I really like it. I'm not overly impressed with reverb/delay effects though. Wondering if anyone feels the same and what pedals do you use? My budget is about £150 but don't mind buying second hand.

Also,looking for a sub £500 hardware synth that can do a wide range of sounds to complement the onboard sounds. Thinking maybe second hand minilogue xd,deepmind 12d or minibrute 2s.

Any one got any thoughts/experience/suggestions?
Thanks in advance

    I usually hate this kind of suggestion but an ipad and a bluetooth midi adapter for the deluge creates a very powerful and portable setup (plus you can record and process the deluge with effects on the ipad, depending on your audio setup).

    Interesting,didn't even consider it (TBH I've never heard of a Bluetooth midi adaptor before! ) What apps do you recommend?

    I'm paired with a MiniBrute 2S, RackBrute 6u (2 modules and counting), Yamaha Reface DX with DTronics DT-RDX, OP-1, Several Pocket Operators, Volca Modular, Minilogue XD (arriving today) and a new iPad (end of the month, I think) to run Gadget 2... things chop and change, but this is holding my interest, currently...

    Access Virus Ti. The perfect companion, imho.

    For effects, a Kurzweil KSP8, and some nice preamps.

    Synths that are controlled from my Deluge: TR909, Alesis DM Pro, Roland Jupiter 8, King Korg, Kurzweil Forte, TB03 (sync only), Korg MS2000, Korg Prophecy, Korg EMX1 (sync only)

    had midi pads and an ipad, but all the wires and instability and set up in AUM.... I am now considering an mpc live: my needs I would get from a MPClive

    finger drumming with velocity pads 
    multi-sample/velocity kits
    more swing humanisation options
    better fx, and mix (deluge goes into live)
    auto multi-sample synth recording (to use in the deluge)
    metronome only through headphones

    Maybe look into the Mod Duo X? Does FX and synths and has knobs and buttons.
