Audiofanzine FR's review

Xotic Effects X-Blender
(Originally written by Rivera75/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
- What kind of effects or effect types are available?

Good question... This pedal produces the effect you send in the loop. To put it in other words, this pedal is a high-quality looper AND a mixer. You can boost and equalize the signal going through the loop.

- Which technology is used?

Good analog technology, no noise, high-quality buffer, effective bass and treble EQ.

- Connections?

In/Out and Send/Return for the loop.

Both switches allow you to bypass the pedal and to switch between looper and blender (mixer) modes.

UTILIZATION

It's very easy... Just use the loop...

SOUND QUALITY

It's a Xotic... It could be better but it's always very musical...

OVERALL OPINION

I personally use it to mix my Eventide Time Factor. I keep the DRY signal and I mix with the TF (Kill Dry function ON). The big knob can be controlled with the foot so it's like an expression pedal for the delay mix...

The sound turns cleaner...

I recommend this pedal to people who don't want to color the signal with digital effects like the Boss DD20 for example.

I also tested it with an overdrive pedal... The result was great with the following settings: dry/wet mix = 20/80. The sound gained more punch and clarity thanks to that small amount of dry signal...

People looking for a mono mixer for their pedalboard don't have many options but this one is a high-quality solution...

Xotic Effects X-Blender
This is an analog mixer which acts between a direct circuit and a loop circuit effects.
The goal is to inject a blender dry signal over the signal effects.
All analog with a very low power consumption.
Booster lies at the heart of the circuit effects loop, a phase inverter and a mini équalo can correct defects of the latter.
And of course a big knob visible from the bridge front to mix everything.

UTILIZATION

Depending on the configuration of your effects loop X-Blender act in different ways, in the case of distortions too colorful blender will add thickness. In the case of a whammy 5 now without output "dry" blender inject the right amount of signal "dry", for example, align mode + or - 1 or 2 octaves with the tonic. Or check delays, reverbs and mixing loops and with the help of your foot big knob.
I personally do not practice using it (meaning the approximate equilibrium), but I've seen pretty interesting videos rotary sneakers.
In short this pedal waiting for you and your creativity.

SOUND QUALITY

the effect is very clean, and it's been fun to concentrate knew her his "dry" without new effects. Personally I do not put an ounce, but still, it changes everything.

OVERALL OPINION

This pedal has become the heart and brain of my pedalboard. This is the management of my sound that passes through the X-Blender. Radical decisions are taken when a pedalboard on structure, and we do not always realize how difficult it is to go back. The X-Blender allows a redistribution of cards, and breathes fresh air into our circuits pedals as well as in our brains.
With the experience I would start there.
