From the designer of The Black Death, The Dark Interpreter (Towers Open Fire edition) is the ultimate plague-driven, finger sensitive,stand-alone noise processor, granular synthesizer and sound generator, merging digital and analogue processing.

The Dark Interpreter is modeled as a set of leaky, overlapping
medieval village spaces within which various plague simulations run,
and through which a motley of villagers (grains) wander, steered by
electric fingers and touch.

All models of the Dark Interpreter can generate sound or process
incoming audio (full size (6.5mm) input and output JACKs). The model
(Lachrymarum) presented here samples 16 bit audio at 48 KHz with a
sample memory of 1 second (or more depending on speed and settings).

The Dark Interpreter is hand-made and is delivered fully assembled and
tested. It features high quality ALPS potentiometers, and a BOSS style
9v power socket (+9v/positive on the outside, negative centre,
minimum 300mA). Returns and repairs are accepted within reason.

Amazing. I love running different things through this. It's the most fun I've had with a piece of gear in a long time.

Awesome piece of technology. It takes a while to understand and dial in, but when when you do, the pedal seems to have a personality all its own.

The pedal was shipped timely, in very secure packaging, and Martin has been great at answering all of my questions about the pedal as they come up. If any other pedals come up though this shop, I'll definitely consider adding them to my collection.
