Hi all.

I am building a small 3u rack with Beads as a core component. Recently, the Data Bender has been reeling me in with its bit reduction and general grit. There seems to be a sonic overlap with Beads and the Data Bender.

Is it overkill to include both in a small FX focused rig?

The following video is similar to what I have in mind.

Thank you.


fx aid has decent bit reduction - with the xl there's a dedicated cv input for it and it's available over all algorithms - some of which are distortion type things - personally I'd go with that and beads - leaves more space for important things like utilities then

Utility modules are the inexpensive, dull polish that makes the expensive, shiny modules actually shine!!!

Thank you very much for that. I had no idea that the FX Aid XL had bit reduction functionality. It looks like a very good option.

I will keep that in mind.

All the best
