DARK WORLD – Digital World. Dark Heart.

Chase Bliss Audio 於2018年最重要、也是該品牌有史以來銷售速度最快的型號 “Dark World” Dual Channel Reverb 正式發布, “Dark”、”World” 兩個截然不同特色的Channel 分別由 Cooper fx 、 Keeley Electronics 設計 ,”Dark” 三種模式 MOD/SHIM/BLACK ,”World” 三種模式 HALL/PLATE/SPRING,兩個Channel 可以做平行、D>W、W>D 三種模式運作,共有33個不同的 routing 方式,加上其他參數控制和MIDI Expression Control,有太多太多值得玩味的效果組合, “Dark World” 是一顆非常有趣、強大而且容易駕馭的 Reverb!

Dark World™ is the first fully digital offering from Chase Bliss Audio; a unique dual channel reverb that we made with a little help from our friends. Cooper FX is responsible for the “Dark” channel; a collaborative effort influenced partly by their Generation Loss and Outward designs. Keeley Electronics crafted the “World” channel, which houses three absolutely gorgeous Hall, Plate, and Spring algorithms. Put together, the channels can be routed in 33 distinct ways, creating a stunning palette of reverb ranging from subtle, tasteful, and lush all the way to broken video cassette, glitch shimmer, and infinite freeze. Add all this to the dense digital control and full MIDI, dip-switch, and preset implementation Chase Bliss is known for, and you have yourself a very fun, powerful, and player-friendly reverb pedal in a small package.

Warped Vinyl – Vibrato/Chorus

wv_pagemain

Warped Vinyl 是一顆數位和類比完美結合的 Vibrato/Chorus效果器,聲音效果由純類比電路處理,而控制介面則由數位微處理器運作,介由數位類比的結合,您可以在Waped Vinyl發現不同於其他類比效果器所聽到的聲音

 

RAMP: 這是參數鈕,可以分別或者同時控制任5個參數之一(volume, mix, rpm, depth, warp),或是從後面的DIP開關指定RAMP鈕波形上升或下降時間

VOLUME: 音量控制鈕

MIX: 調和 dry&wet 聲音,適當的調整可以做出更美的chorus效果

RPM: 控制Vibrato的速度,也可由tap 鈕設定速度

1 – 2 – 4 (3 – 6 – 8) Toggle: 將目前的Tap tempo速度加乘 1/2/4倍或3/6/8倍 (背面DIP開關設定)

DEPTH: 控制Vibrato的深度

WARP: 控制波形的中心,逆時針方向轉動,波形上升快而下降慢,順時針方向轉動,波形上升慢而下降快,停留在12點方向就是對稱波

左方波形開關: 左半部波形選擇,sine wave、三角波、方波

右方波形開關: 右半部波形選擇,sine wave、三角波、方波

下方Toggle開關: 載入設定參數,Warped Vinyl 可以將旋鈕、開關和背面DIP開關的參數記憶2preset(左、右),撥掉左或右載入已存入的設定,撥到中間代表聲音反映目前的旋鈕及開關設定。

     – 記憶設定於右方將右腳踏開關(Bypass)按住3秒後將左腳踏開關同時按住3秒,中間LED閃爍代表記憶完成。

    – 記憶設定於左方將左腳踏開關(Bypass)按住3秒後將右腳踏開關同時按住3秒,中間LED閃爍代表記憶完成。

Gravitas – analog tremolo

grav_pagemain

Harmonic and/or standard tremolo, pure analog warmth.

This tremolo pedal features an all-analog signal path that can do any variety or shape of standard volume modulation, harmonic tremolo (inspired by vintage Brownface) or both simultaneously for a truly unique and beautiful tremolo sound that sits just perfectly in a mix. The first thing your guitar hits in the signal path is a gorgeous, transparent, discrete class A clean boost circuit, and is followed by buffering and tone shaping with famed Analog Devices AD823 opamps for perfect tonal clarity, and analog warmth. Further, every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100% analog the entire time and nevergets digitally processed. Since the control of the effect is digital, it opens up unprecedented effects and features that have never been heard or offered in analog stompboxes.

Wombtone mkII – analog phaser

wt_pagemain

The sonic experience of the womb, now in pedal form.

They just don’t make phasers like they used to. This analog phaser pedal features an all-analog signal path with smooth, vintage tones that harken back to the 70’s while retaining the ability to get plenty weird and psychadelic too. Wombtone mkII has a few upgrades, including a rare mix control that moves from full dry signal to pure phase vibrato as well as the ability to switch between 2, 4, and 6 stages of phase for all flavors of phase from barely audible to that full, syrupy swirl. Further, every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100%  analog the entire time and never gets digitally processed. Since the control of the effect is digital, it opens up unprecedented effects and features that have never been heard or offered in analog stompboxes.

Spectre – analog flanger

Spec_pagemain

Through-zero and back again. Many decades ago, it is rumored that a certain, infamous “Spectre” created the effect we’ve all come to know as flange by putting a finger on a set of identical tape recorders, slightly altering the speed of one of the recorders. Through-zero flanging is an incredibly rare and inspiring effect, especially in the analog domain. By using two delay lines (as opposed to just one), Spectre can cross over the elusive “zero point.” This through-zero flanger pedal features an all-analog signal path that can be dialed in to create any amount of subtle and wacky flange tones. Spectre also boasts an impressive array of chorus and vibrato tones.  Further, every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100% analog the entire time and never gets digitally processed. Since the control of the effect is digital, it opens up unprecedented effects and features that have never been heard or offered in analog stompboxes.
