Blast off into the ether
The Ether: Modulated Reverberator, delivers vast ambient and shimmering soundscapes. With endless tails, the pedal is further manipulated by Tap Tempo Vibrato, Tremolo and Harmonic-Tremolo, all designed to bring you to a realm of dark, cavernous voids and eerie, yet shimmering reflections. Ambient bliss is only a stomp away.
The journey with the Ether started with a simple question. What textures could be created by heavily (or subtly) modulating a cavernous ambient reverb, while at the same time leaving the dry signal untouched? The result is Ether, a powerful, yet versatile reverb that is designed to create hauntingly beautiful soundscapes.
While most Shimmer reverbs aim for an angelic effect, our design team prefer things to have a little more of a twisted sonic signature. So we created a shimmer algorithm that has a tendency to devolve as it decays, creating a sound drenched in an Ether induced dissonant haze. The Decay control takes you from a confined space to the infinite heavens, while the Color knob allows you to make the tone all as dark or as snappy as you please. With an extended range on the Level knob, the output of the reverb signal can overtake the dry signal, for those seeking extra colourful effects.
Now let’s talk about what really sets this pedal apart from being just another reverb box - the modulation. We have equipped this compact goliath of a stompbox with 3 different modulation types, each with 3 different LFO shapes and Tap Tempo operation. The Vibrato adds a melting fluidity and washed out chorus flavour to the verb while the Tremolo can divide things up into subtle waves or absolutely chop up your tails for a more percussive decay. Finally, the Harmonic-Tremolo adds a wonderful Push/Pull character that tilts the sonic spectrum between highs and lows, all while sweeping everything in between.
