  • Astronaut V.2


    Meet our updated multiverb unit for cosmic sounds! Astronaut 2 is more than just a reverb, it combines a set of different effects for ambient, spacey sounds with many variations and features.

    Changes (compared to the previous version of the Astronaut multiverb unit):
    1. Improved tones and new sounds, 11 in total.
    2. Ability to keep tails in bypass.
    3. Decay knob added to adjust effect parameters
.
    4. Program selector with fixed positions.

    Controls:


    1. Level — output level boost. Unity at full ccw, up to +10 dBu at full cw.

    2. Mix — dry/wet mix that can go fully wet (kill dry)
.
    3. Decay — controls the length of the reverb, can change behavior depending on the algorithm selected

.
    4. Program — algorithm selector.
    5. Footswitch — activates and deactivates the effect
.
    6. Tails — preserves tails in bypass.


    Programs:


    1. Gated

      A simple and straightforward reverb with gate. The reverb effect is audible only when the guitar signal is present, decay knob controls threshold level
.
    2. Modulated

      A reverb with deep modulation. 
Modulation rate and reverb length are both controlled by decay knob.
    3. Skynet
      
A well-known and beloved algorithm from the original Astronaut. Long, massive, cosmic.
    4. Mechanics

      Industrial tones. Decay knob controls reverb and delay time from metal clang to short high-feedback delay.

    5. ShimUp

      Classic shimmer, each repeat is pitched one octave up.
    6. ShimDown

      Shimmer with octave down. Massive and fat, provides excellent padding.

    7. ShimUpDown

      Yeah, two octaves shimmer at the same time! Enjoy ambience for any note.
    8. Major Arp
      
Random major arpeggio + reverb. Decay controls rate and reverb length.
    9. Octave Arp

      Same as #8 but with octave arpeggios.
    10. Ping-pong

      A delay where the repeats’ playing direction is reversed after each repeat. Decay controls delay time.

    11. Hold

      A mode that stands out from the rest, it holds the note played and behaves in a different way compared to the reverbs described above. This is a version of our freeze-verb algorithm. Engage the effect, and the note playing at the moment the button is pressed will be frozen. Decay controls fade-in time. There are no tails available for this mode, the toggle switch enables detune. This option can be switched on the run for any note held: activate freeze-verb, detune by switching the toggle up, wait for the tone you like and hold this tone by switching the toggle down. Repeat if needed.
Detune is infinite and could generate sub-sonic component - be careful if your speakers are not designed to handle very low frequencies!


    Input-listening mode


    Inherited from the first version of Astronaut, this pedal can listen to your signal in bypass and play full and massive reverb tails immediately when switched on. To activate this mode, cycle the power and press the button 10 times within the first 10 seconds.
    • Fast LED blinking indicates input listening is activated
    • Slow blinking is for regular mode
    If activated, this mode disables tails and the tails switch.
