You can digitally model any amplifier under the sun on a clock radio-type apparatus. The future is here and literally anything is possible. So what does Earthquaker Devices decide to do? They have gone ahead and built a lo-fi delay based on a processor meant for a cheap karaoke machine. Why? Because it sounds awesome and Earthquaker is in the business of making things that sound awesome, that’s why!
V2 updates - February 2018:
Flexi-switch switching for latching or momentary control
What up, cosmonauts? Welcome to the Space Spiral™! 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.
EarthQuaker Devices Space Spiral V2 Modulated Reverb Pedal Features
- 30ms - 600ms analog voiced digital delay
- Dark, dreamy, murky delay sounds reminiscent of vintage oil can and tape units
- Variable waveshape LFO (adjustable from triangle through square wave) modulates delay repeats
- Repeats control takes off into self-oscillation around 3 o’clock
- Short delay times produce chorus effects, giving way to slapback echoes and psychedelic modulated - tape-style delays as the Time control is increased
- Experimenting with delay Time and modulation Rate introduces unique rhythmic modulated delay effects
- All-analog dry signal path
- All-digital wet signal path
- True bypass
- Silent relay-based switching
- Current draw: 50 mA
- Each and every Space Spiral is built by hand in of Akron, Ohio.
The Space Spiral’s delay time ranges from a tight 30 ms to a fast and loose 600 ms. Can you imagine having 600 ms 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.
The Earthquaker Devices Space Spiral also comes equipped with a powerful on-board modulation engine to take your tones to new zones. Feeling dangerous? Crank up the Depth and let that signal stretch into wild new dimensions! Wanna go further out on the edge with hotter intensity? Use the Shape control to morph the waveform from triangle to square and the Space Spiral will be spreading out her wings, jumpin’ off the track and shovin’ into overdrive. Is it moving too slowly for you? Can you feel the Space Spiral beggin’ you to touch and go? Use the Rate control to adjust the speed to your taste. Get those classic Leslie tones you crave. Get those wild pitch bends you dream about. Make the rate a subdivision of the delay time and fly away to the bright side of the moon.
The Space Spiral has a completely analog dry signal path, totally digital delay path and electronic relay based true-bypass switching. It is powered by a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel and has a current draw of 50ma.
Each and every Space Spiral is built by the hands of cadets on the red line overload through the starry skies of Akron, Ohio.
