Montreal Assembly Count to 5

The Montréal Assembly Count to 5 is a unique delay/sampler with three modes that can create sped-up and slowed-down—as well as forward and backward—tape effects, audio slicing, looping and overdubbing. Quantized pitch-shifting makes it possible to create tones that are harmonized chromatically or in perfect fifths and octaves, or you can turn off quantization and set the pitch wherever you want.

Its three modes are pitch delay, random sampling and layered looping.

We added this pedal to our article about psychedelic and experimental delay pedals.

The pedal has two different firmwares that allow for slightly different functionality:

Montréal Assembly Count to 5, Builder’s Notes

The Count to 5 is a unique take on a compact delay/sampler pedal. It has 3 main modes which allow pitch delays, random sampling and layered looping. To get an idea of the patches take a look through the current manual and also some of the videos here, as well as the count to five megathread on ilovefuzz.

This pedal requires 150 mA at 9VDC with the typical 2.1mm negative tip power supply connector. This pedal is true bypass.

Blems are units with some minor surface defect or other cosmetic issue. They are 100% functional and are covered by the same warranty the standard units are.
