Beyond Your Classic Flange.
With the Orbit dBucket Flanger, we’ve painstakingly recreated every aspect of some of the greatest vintage analog flangers. To go beyond that, we’ve also added features such as through zero flanging to take you where few have ever ventured before.
Our high performance DSP is dedicated entirely to doing one thing and one thing only, delivering the ultimate flanger. Add true bypass, extensive expression pedal control, a favorite preset, super high quality analog front end and output sections, low power consumption and you’ll never want to let go of your Orbit.

Front Panel Controls
Speed adjusts the flanger LFO speed.
Feedback switches between positive, negative and positive/negative feedback. With positive feedback, the wet and dry signals are in phase, producing a jet-like swish when higher REGEN settings are used. Negative Feedback creates ‘hollow’ or ‘watery’ flange sounds. The +/- setting uses a frequency dependent feedback combining elements of both Positive and Negative to create new sonic possibilities.
LFO switches between logarithmic, linear and through-zero LFOs. The LOG setting produces an even-sounding frequency sweep. LIN produces a frequency sweep that speeds up as it goes higher, and slows down as you go lower. Thru0 advances the wet signal ahead of the dry signal for for dramatic flanging effects unavailable in most flangers.
Width adjusts the flanger LFO width.
Mix adjusts the wet/dry mix. Most flangers don’t include this control but it can be very handy if an extreme flanging sound needs to be tamed without altering the fundamental effect sound.
Regen controls the feedback intensity of the flanging effect.
Manual controls the delay time of the flanging effect. Higher settings produce higher frequency flanging effects, while lower settings produce lower frequency flanging effects.

Ins & Outs
Input – Plug your instrument in here. Default is mono input. Can be used as TRS stereo input by switching internal jumper.
Exp Connect an expression pedal and control any one knob with your foot.
Left Output – Connect to your amp, mixing board, other pedals, etc. Acts as a mono output when only one channel is being used.
Right Output – Connect to your amp, mixing board, other pedals, etc.
Power – Maximum 9 volts DC center negative, with a minimum of 250mA current.

Any control can be assigned to the expression pedal, which opens up the possibilities for morphing from subdued to wild to even further.
The three-position LFO switch is the Orbit’s coolest control. It selects between a logarithmic sweep (even frequencies), a linear sweep (which speeds up through the high bands and slows down through the lower ones), and Thru 0, which phases in and out of high and lower fidelities.
A powerfully versatile platform designed to give musicians an extraordinary range of sound shaping options in a single pedal.
