T-120 Videotape Echo
Inspired by the garbled audio that accompanies worn-out and poorly aged budget bin video tape, the T-120 Videotape Echo gives you exactly the type of sound that you're hearing in your head when you look at it.
Feed your guitar through the T-120, and the recorded playback will be the sound of low bandwidth tape being fed haphazardly through a magnetic read head by an uncalibrated, unbalanced feed mechanism.
The T-120 began as an attempt to make a PT2399 delay that sounded pristine, and then use analog EQing techniques to destroy the frequency spectrum in the exactly the same way that worn-out tape does. And the result sounds every bit as good as it looks.
No DSP Involved.

T-60 Analog Modulator
Gorgeous high-fidelity compression paired with lush Analog Chorus & Vibrato, modulated by a meticulously crafted digital LFO & control system, all finely tailored and EQ'd to give you the most oxymoronically hi-fi lo-fi sound you could possibly ask for.
Instantly overlay a worn-out layer of stretched tape to your playing. Overlay it on your dry signal or mix fully wet and let it speak on its own. Let the pitch wander at its leisure with randomized vibrato, meandering up and down as quickly or slowly as you like. Or get some old vinyl sounds by turning 'Randomize' down and letting an even swaying pitch take over.
Turn glide up to let the pitch move smoothly, or bring it down to zero to for glitchy pitch jumping as the vibrato moves erratically from one place to the next.Add pauses in between the wavecycles using the secondary 'idle' control, giving the sound some room to breathe.
Select between 4 time divisions for the tap tempo entry, and choose whether you'd like to tap in the waveform rate or the sample & hold rate.
No DSP involved.

112+ Drive Channel
The loudest kid in the class.
Made to be just as comfortable alone as it is stacking with another pedal or pushing your tubes further into overdrive, the 112+ can do anything from low gain to high gain, and it can do it with more volume than any other pedal you've played.
With an internal voltage boosted up to 34v, the 112+ runs hot and uses that headroom to full advantage.
Like all Demedash Effects designs, the 112+ sounds pretty great at any setting, but rewards you for taking the time to sit down and getting to know it. The range of sounds that are possible might not be obvious at first glance, but once you dig in you'll be happy you did.

The Retro Harmonic
Stereo Analog Harmonic Tremolo
A fully stereo input/stereo output harmonic tremolo, utilizing a 100% analog signal path and 100% digital control, opening up an unprecedented range of possibilities for this glorious, criminally underrated effect.
Evenly matched preamps with plenty of gain are available on the 'Drive' Knob, allowing this to double as a full-stereo drive pedal - a setting which is fully accessible as an alternative to bypass when you disengage the effect.
Higher-order High/Low Pass filters designed from the ground up and tuned to perfection space the bass and treble bands far enough apart to allow wonderful warbly harmonic trem without cutting out any midrange.
The real magic, though, is in how the software in the digital brain manipulates the voltage-controlled elements of the signal path.
The phase of the bass and treble LFOs can be set to 0 if you'd like amplitude tremolo, 180 if you'd like harmonic tremolo, or anywhere in between. The same goes for the phase between the LFOs for the left and right channel, allowing you to play with panning however you like.
Syncopation is one of the reals treats of this pedal. Using this knob in conjunction with the harmonic phase control, you can any number of mezmerising polyrhythms that sound even more mind blowing when panned 180 degrees. The 10 syncopation options, shown as ratios on the control panel, let you set the treble channels to run faster than the bass channels, yet at a rate that causes them to line up regularly and begin the cycle over again.
