Gorgeous analog chorus and vibrato sounds, exceptional DSP versatility, and high-end audio quality, all in a compact stompbox.
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, California— June 10, 2010 — Strymon® (www.strymon.net) recently introduced Ola™ dBucket™ Chorus & Vibrato, a powerful DSP driven chorus and vibrato pedal that delivers all of the subtleties of an analog chorus along with advanced DSP flexibility, and high-end audio quality, all in a compact stompbox.
“We’ve taken the super high horsepower SHARC DSP and dedicated it to doing one thing only—delivering the best analog bucket brigade chorus and vibrato sounds possible.” remarked Pete Celi, Strymon Engineer and Sound Designer. “Since we utilize every last drop of DSP juice to create one extremely detailed effect, we can deliver all of the subtlety that make an analog chorus special. The result is an amazingly rich and complex analog sound with all of the flexibility and benefits of digital.”
Ola features hand crafted, computationally intense chorus, multi-mode chorus and vibrato algorithms, each with normal, ramp and envelope modes per algorithm. Über-flexible tone shaping with dedicated speed, depth, mix, tone, and ramp/envelope controls are all available on the Ola front panel.
Super low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters, and 110db typical signal-to-noise ratio keep your signal crystal clear. In addition to high-end audio specs, Ola provides stereo inputs and outputs, true bypass, and a Favorite switch to save a preset of your favorite settings.
Ola is designed and built in the USA and housed in a rugged, dark blue anodized aluminum chassis.
