Spacious, swirling analog flanger 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 Orbit™ dBucket™ Flanger, a powerful DSP driven flanger pedal that delivers all of the nuances of sought-after analog flangers coupled with exceptional DSP versatility and high-end audio quality, all in a compact stompbox.
“We’ve taken the huge amount of horsepower found in a SHARC DSP and dedicated it to doing one thing only—delivering the best analog bucket brigade flanger sounds possible.” remarked Pete Celi, Strymon Engineer and Sound Designer. “Because we utilize every last drop of DSP juice to create one extremely detailed effect, we can deliver all of the subtlety that make a classic analog flanger special. The result is an amazingly rich and complex analog flanger sound with unprecedented flexibility.”
Orbit features a hand crafted, computationally intense flanger algorithm, with three feedback types (positive, negative, and positive/negative) as well as three LFO types (logarithmic, linear, and through zero). Über-flexible tone shaping with dedicated speed, width, mix, regeneration, and manual controls are all available on the Orbit 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, Orbit provides stereo outputs, expression pedal input, true bypass, and a Favorite switch to save a preset of your favorite settings.
Orbit is designed and built in the USA and housed in a rugged, purple anodized aluminum chassis.
