No need to aplogize. You werent abrupt, rude, or even wonky!! LOL
No plug-ins. Yes, it was hardware. I'd define it as a boutique-type pedal in its infancy stages. It wasnt released. Just a friend who tinkered with something that had no name. It was just a silver box with three knobs. Probably an old vibe pedal. I never asked.
With "Dream Time Station" I liked that people remarked that it sounded like documentaries from the 70's. So I rolled with it.
Thanks for the compliment. If it isn;t too much to ask, I would refer you to the "Soporific" album on my bandcamp page. The wonky pedal is used alot on that one. Hopefully, you will find a track or two that you wil like.
I'd love to hear your feedback. Just don't go in with the mindset of comparing it to BoC. That isn't/wasn't my goal. Even if i had all their gear: i am not them and they are not me.
