Apollo II - Custom Shop Midnight Sapphire
The Apollo II has landed! The Apollo II combines a lush, all-analog 4-stage phaser circuit with our exclusive tap tempo microprocessor. We have spent countless hours expanding on the functionality and sound of the previous generation Apollo. The Apollo II now has a variety of distinct waveforms accessible via an 11-position detent control which can be used in conjunction with 3 different rhythmic patterns providing a vast array of unique phasing options. Waveforms include more conventional sine and triangle based shapes in addition to step phasers, combined settings, randomizer and manual phase control. Adjustable depth and regen controls, coupled with an expression pedal input for speed and manual sweep complete the package while Custom Shop Midnight Sapphire finish and elegant graphic take the Apollo II to the next level.
All Prices USD.
Depth: Adjusts width of the phase shifter, and is disabled in “Manual” mode (setting 11 on the Wave knob).
Regen: Controls the amount of feedback in the phaser signal. Set it all the way left for a subtle “always-on” phaser, and turn it up to inject the phasing with some serious juice.
Wave: The Wave control is an 11-position knob that selects one of 10 waveforms or a Manual mode (position 11) that gives you a “frozen” phase tone that you can manipulate manually or with an expression pedal.
Speed: Controls the phaser speeds, from “am I sure this is moving?” to alien tractor beam-fast.
Mode: This three-position toggle selects one of three modes that accentuates certain positions and patterns for even more customization.
1-2-4: In Speed mode, this controls the range of the Speed control. In tap tempo mode, this knob controls the subdivisions for some extra hands-free control.
Expression pedal jack: Takes over the Speed control in Wave settings 1–10, and on Wave setting 11, controls Manual position for phaser-wah tones.
Input: Instrument or other pedal goes here.
Output: Amplifier or other pedal goes here.
Tap tempo footswitch: Enters Tap Tempo mode and controls the speed at which the phaser operates by tapping in the desired tempo.
True bypass footswitch: Turns effect on and off.
Power: The Apollo II requires a center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 40mA of current (not included). Almost all power supplies meet this requirement, but check yours first.
Dimensions: 4.67" x 3.68" x 1.18" (119mm x 94mm x 30mm)
