Cooking up soundscapes with the Line 6 HX Stomp

If anyone were to ask me what Brand New Noise sound recorder to buy, I would tell them to get a Hubble every time. The kalimba itself is already an appealing instrument- allowing for serene and unusual sounds without much practice. The Hubble as a kalimba not only amplifies and repeats these sounds, but it also allows you to pitch bend and warp the kalimba sounds using a gritty onboard delay.
