NEW! the EchoVerb & the Crimson Comp

Postby ColdCraft » Thu Sep 05, 2013 3:47 pm

It's been a long time coming with these two but they are finally finished.

The EchoVerb is a PARALLEL combination of a rich, ethereal Room reverb and a warm, slightly compressed Echo. There is absolutely no crosstalk between the effects so the Reverb is driven only by the dry signal (and not the echo) and vice versa. Controls for Echo Time, Repeats, Level and Reverb Time & Level.

The Crimson Comp is a hybrid dynamics preamp offering truly independent compression, limiting and downward expansion (gate). This means that the Crimson Comp is the quietest compressor available, reducing the gain on noise while giving you independent ratio and limiter threshold settings. Controls for Ratio, Limit (upper threshold), Gate (lower threshold), Response and Volume.

There are audio samples of both on the website. Both feature our soft-touch relay bypass system with an internally selectable buffered bypass.

Available Direct for $189 @ http://www.coldcrafteffects.net

Love the sound of the compressor, I have a bit of a soft spot for compression! The echoverb also sounds intriguing, I do find reverb on delay trails slightly too much so it's a cool idea, perhaps more of a pedal for ambience and soundscape work. Compression on the echos sounds sensible, is it warm in a bucket brigade degradation type way or where each echo looses fidelity, or is it more consistent with the highs rolled off? Love the enclosures too, simple and effective. How stable are the pedals with the switches so low on the enclosure, do you find they rock up at all?

Thanks for your comments! The EchoVerb rolls off the highs of each successive repeat. It can do infinite repeats, but not oscillation. The signal that drives the reverb gets filtered a bit too. It can definitely do ambient/soundscape stuff, but I also like it as an always on, low mix effect.

The switches are the soft-touch kind, and they don't need much force at all to activate them. The enclosures don't seem to rock up at all with these switches.
