I was quite happy to get my hands on this 4HP effects powerhouse from Happy Nerding. I really love a nice lush reverb, and they can really help to smooth out some of the harsh tones produced by a eurorack system. I own a Strymon Big Sky, so I was quite excited to hear that the FX Aid has algorithms based on the boutique guitar pedal. So of course, once I had it in the rack I had to do a few comparisons, which you can see and hear in this video.
It takes only a glance at their website or any one of their products to realize that Endorphin.es has a distinct and unique sense of style. The panels of their modules are a striking golden yellow, with red, blue, and black knobs. They call themselves Endorphin.es Airways and list their company on Facebook as a cargo and freight company with the tagline “life is a trip”. The Grand Terminal fully embraces the retro airline aesthetic and even opts to label its features with thematic terminology. Endorphin.es was kind enough to lend me not only their Grand Terminal, but their Furthrrrr Generator and Shuttle Control as well. Therefore, this will be the first of a three part travelogue. So buckle your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen, we’re about to take off with Endorphin.es Airways.
