Origin Effects used all-analogue components to recreate this unique and sought-after effect at circuit level. Origin Effects also added a three-way Blend switch that combines the wet and dry signals in different
ways to deliver three distinct modulation modes: pure Magnatone® pitch modulation, Uni-Vibe-style phasing and a unique chorus effect.
Alongside a range of modern features like tap tempo, rhythmic subdivisions and effects switcher integration, the MAGMA57 also houses a complete valve amp-style signal path. Built on the same platform as our groundbreaking RevivalDRIVE and inspired by the original Magnatone® amps, the pedal’s amp circuitry delivers complex clean and overdriven tones dripping with vintage vibe.
Meanwhile, the powerful Post-Drive EQ section will make sure that the MAGMA57’s stunning range of tones will sound their best whether it’s plugged into an amp, flat-response power amp, mixer or recording interface.
VIBE footswitch – Switches the vibrato effect on and off. When VIBE is turned on the jewel light will turn white and will pulse at the selected vibrato speed.
DRIVE – behaves like the Volume knob on a vintage non-master-volume guitar amplifier. Set low for clean sounds or turn it up for more overdrive.
TONE – Turn up for a brighter sound. Turn down to tame highs.
OUTPUT – overall pedal output level
SPEED – Turn up to increase the rate of the vibrato effect. The range of the SPEED control is set by the three-position MULTI switch.
MULTI – applies a preset multiplier to the speed of the vibrato, whether it is set by the pedal’s SPEED knob or by attaching an external tap tempo footswitch.
SHAPE – allows you to choose between two different LFO waveforms.
INTENSITY – controls the depth of the vibrato.
POST-DRIVE EQ – three presets allow quick compatibility when plugging into Blackface, Plexi, and flat-response amps. Fine-tune the top-end further with the ADJ trimmer.
