VITRAL | microtonal shimmer reverb
THE GLASS OF REALITY HAS BROKEN
Generate immediate cinematic soundscapes. Pressure, Lure, Discomfort, Consonance, Ecstasy: let yourself be embraced by the unknown until a link is created between the sound and yourself. A reverberator that blurs the outline of your body, the limits of sensory exploration in the flesh of a pedal.
Vitral is our take on the iconic shimmer reverb, expanded beyond the octave up reverbs out there. Vitral has two cascading pitch shifters that intertwine with each other to create harmonized chords within the reverb path, generating immediate cinematic sensations.
The first of them is Center, containing fixed semitones, 5ths, 7th and 8ves. The second provides microtonal changes that range from an octave below to an octave above, tuning ambiences and unique emotional alterations.
Dimension allows you to control how the echoes of the reverb spread in the overall mix. Step into the abyss, a plasma of reflections stretched in time.
Create orchestral sounds with just a few elements, push your body into an astral gap, or summon an army of darkness, YOU UNFOLD THE TALE…
Dimensión / Dimension:
Determines the overall behavior of the effect. to the right, decreases the processor’s resolution, spreading the echoes in the reverb path and setting a cloudy and dense sound; to the left sets a glassier atmosphere.
Turning this knob continuously in small intervals, results in dramatic responses that enhance the sensation of a tape recording.
Micro Intervalo / Micro Interval:
Sweeping this knob you can access to a microtonal range out of the standard tuning, having as a base note the Center shifter. With cero tonal changes at the center, an octave above to the right and an octave below to the left, it allows you to create a range of harmonies with new sensory possibilities.
Centro / Center:
Sets the main note of the reverberation, and can change between 5ths, 7ths and 8ves.
Filtro / Filter:
Designed to lower the high frequency content and balance your overall blend.
Decaimiento / Decay:
Controls the duration of the reverb tails. With the knob all the way to the right, it can auto-oscillate.
Mezcla / Blend:
Control the proportion between the dry and wet signal, 100% reverb to the right, 100% dry to the left.
TRS input for expression pedal, assigned to the Dimension parameter, the knob remains available to set the maximum and minimum sweep for your expression device.
Power Supply: 9vDc (No battery option)
Min. Current Draw: 70mA
Dimensions: 125(D) x 71(W) x 55(H) (with jacks and knobs)
We recommend using a regulated 9 volt Dc power supply with our pedals, 2.1mm diameter positive barrel and negative center. Using one with poor regulation, not isolated and poor filtering can result in unexpected noise or unwanted higher voltages that can take the pedal out of operation and even cause damage.
