Peavey DSC-4 Dual Clock Stereo Chorus Pedal

This is a quick demonstration of the Peavey DSC-4 Dual Clock Stereo Chorus.  I stumbled across this pink nightmare in a second hand store for cheap.  It was hard to pass up being an analog pedal.  And holy sh*t it's made in USA.  After my not finding any demos out there I wanted to make a quick demo of my own.

The DSC-4 is a mono input, stereo output effect pedal.  It uses a simple sine wave on MOD 2, and a rectified wave on MOD 1.  Each side of the chorus has its own speed and depth controls.  This is an analog pedal using an MN3101 clock chip to drive an MN3007 Bucket Brigade chip.  The pedal is capable of having one of its outputs fed back into the input for obnoxious noises as I show in Part 3.

Part 1 - Oberheim Matrix-6 Synthesizer, one synth voice enabled.
Part 2 - Fender Strat
Part 3 - Feedback loop using OUT A.  Warning: loud obnoxious sounds.

Recorded straight to a Tascam DR-05 from an Alesis Multimix-8 mixer.
No other effects were used.  This being a stereo effect demo make sure to listen on some decent studio monitors or headphones.
