The Time Wave is a Live remix machine based on the previous works entitled :time machines.

10 patchable keys determine timing change ups and odd granular effects of either a sampled sound (from extremely tight to up to about 4 seconds) or a direct incoming signal. Time is selectable between 3 ranges to allow for more range on the timing knob. This is a digital piece with a very warm sound and very analog characteristics. A sample can be slowed to grumbles or sped up a great deal. Magnetic patches can be made directly point to point or each of the keys can have an assigned effect. The result is highly intuative pallate of effects and simple playability. There is also A stutter sample array for tremelo like effect as well as a add sample key for stacking bits on top of samples and a couple feedback touch points. The time Wave has all standard controls - mix, feedback, level controls, sample on, delay on, 1/4" input, 1/4" output, and a 9v battery plug. Includes manuel.
