The Space Spiral is a dark and dreamy modulated delay designed to take you across the highways of fantasy. While the delay may be designed around a “dawn of digital” echo processor, the sound is out of this world, man. If you are a fan of the dreary echoes produced by old oil can delays or the ethereal sound of a well-loved tape delay, the Space Spiral is totally going to tickle your tone bone.
The Space Spiral’s delay time ranges from a tight 30ms to a fast and loose 600ms. Can you imagine having 600ms of delay time at your fingertips? Out of this world! With all of this adjustable delay time you create anything from a classic slapback to a rhythmic wash of cosmic proportions. You want to take it even further? Maybe to an astral plane? Crank up the repeats and let the infinite oscillation of the Space Spiral take you to the other side. Space Spiral™… It’ll get you through the night.
Time: Delay time goes from 30ms to 600ms; Clockwise for long and counterclockwise for short.
Pro Tip: If you have the repeats all the way up into self-oscillation territory, tum the delay time to alter the frequency.<
Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delay signal. Repeats increase clockwise and gradually begin to build into self-oscillation around 3 o'clock. This oscillation will infinitely continue until the Repeats control is brought back down below the 3 o'clock threshold. These oscillations will last even when the pedal is in bypass mode.
Mix: Blends the delay signal in with the dry; Clockwise for more and counterclockwise for less.
Depth: Controls the desired amount of modulation; Clockwise for more and counterclockwise for less.
Shape: Morphs the wave shape from a soothing triangle shape to a choppy square shape as you turn clockwise.
Rate: Controls the speed of the modulation; Clockwise for fast and counterclockwise for short..
Pro Tip: Match the Rate to the delay time (or a subdivision) for some cool rhy1hmic effects. This is especially awesome in square wave mode with the depth set high.
Measures: 4.75″ x 2.50″ x. 2.25″with knobs
Power: Our pedals take a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages! Current draw is 50 mA.
