The Earthquaker Devices Transmisser Reverb is the newest pedal to come from the amazing tonal wizards at Earthquaker Devices. With six, yes that's SIX parameters you can fully control plus the option of an expression pedal in, you'll never run out of reverb with the Earthquaker Devices Transmisser Reverb. So how does it do what it does? The three controls across the top labeled Decay, Darkness and Freq affect the character of the reverberated signal. Decay controls the length of the reverb tail. Set it for one second or eternity depending on your mood. Darkness controls the overtones in the reverb tails. You can choose bright and shimmery or dark and dusty, your call dude. Freq controls the frequency of the resonant low pass filter. The filter is set just on the verge of oscillation and is really the heart of what makes the Transmisser the Transmisser. Even a subtle nudge of this control can take it from ethereal howl to a shimmery scream. This control can also be put under the spell of an expression control located on the Eastern side of the device. We recommend using a Moog expression pedal for optimal comfort and usability. The use of an expression pedal to control the filter can cause time to disappear, don’t say we didn’t warn you. The three controls across the bottom labeled Warp, Rate and Mix affect how the entire reverb processor behaves. Rate is hardwired for the optimum depth and controls the speed of the system-wide modulation in a narrow range that creates a sound far more unique than a simple modulated reverb. Not only does it modulate the reverberated signal, it also modulates the Freq and Darkness within a small range that is dependent on where the Warp control is set. Slower warble to supersonic ripples can be achieved by simply turning this tiny tonal teaser. Warp is a total system slew control. As you turn this control counter clockwise; the filter becomes deeper and more resonant, the decay becomes longer and warmer, the modulation grows wider and the whole system becomes more mellow and more chill. It’s like pulling back the cape of a wise old wizard and discovering that the wizard is, in fact, wearing shorts and just wants to take it easy. Mix? Well, the mix controls how much awesome you want to blend with your boring old dry signal. It can go from nothing to probably way too much for you to handle. The Transmisser has a fully analog dry signal path, fully digital reverberation path and electronic relay based true-bypass switching. Each Transmisser is populated by robots and assembled by glassy eyed human beans in a bunker buried 12 leagues under the sonic astronomy appreciation society of Akron, OH.
