Através do zero e de volta!

Há muitas décadas atrás, rumores de que um certo, infame "Spectro" criou o efeito que todos nós conhecemos como flange, colocando um dedo em um conjunto de gravadores de fita idênticos, alterando ligeiramente a velocidade de um dos gravadores. O flanging através do zero é um efeito incrivelmente raro e inspirador, especialmente no domínio analógico. Usando duas linhas de delay (em oposição a apenas uma), Spectre pode atravessar o elusive "ponto zero". Este pedal de flanger através do zero possui um caminho de sinal totalmente analógico que pode ser parametrizado para criar qualquer quantidade tons sutis até as mais extremas de flange. Spectre também possui uma impressionante variedade de tons de chorus e vibrato. Além disso, cada knob e switch está conectado a um pequeno cérebro digital enquanto seu sinal de guitarra permanece 100% analógico o tempo todo e nunca são processados digitalmente. Como o controle do efeito é digital, ele abre efeitos e recursos sem precedentes que nunca foram ouvidos ou oferecidos em stompboxes analógicos.

 

 

Features:

Controls

  • Ramp knob can be set to control any of the 5 parameters (Zero, Regen, Rate, Width, Shift) individually or simultaneously via dip switches on the back of the pedal. Controls the ramp time in which this takes place.
  • Mix (Ramp) knob functions as a wet/dry mix knob for the flanging effect when no Ramp dip-switches are in use.
  • Zero knob sets the manual delay time on the flange effect. The “zero point” is somewhere between 1 o’clock & 3 o’clock.
  • Regen knob increases the intensity of the flange effect, even to the point of self-oscillation.
  • Rate knob controls the rate of the flange effect. Can be overridden by the tap tempo switch.
  • 1 – 2 – 3 (3 – 6 – 8) toggle switch sets the tap division for tap tempo. A dip switch on the back accesses the “3 – 6 – 8” divisions.

ModuShape

  • Depth knob controls how wide the flange can go. Crank it clockwise for crazy, deep flange tones.
  • Shift control knob sets the center point of the modulation. Set it counterclockwise to make the wave ramp up quickly and down gradually. Set it clockwise to make the wave ramp up gradually and down quickly. Set it at noon for a perfectly symmetrical wave.
  • Left Wave Shape toggle switch sets the first half of the wave modulation. Left for sine, middle for triangle, right for square.
  • Right Wave Shape toggle switch sets the second half of the wave modulation. Left for square, middle for triangle, right for sine.

Dip Switches

  • Zero, Regen, Rate, Width, and Shift dip switches on the left side simply turn that parameter on or off for ramping or expression pedal capability.
  • Zero, Regen, Rate, Width, and Shift dip switches on the right side control whether the parameters rise or fall in ramp mode. This also affects the direction of movement with an expression pedal.
  • Bounce dip switch makes parameters go back and forth (i.e. modulate) or ramp and hold.
  • Polarity dip switch changes between positive & negative flanging. Positive flanging has a more “musical” sweep, and has a deep tone with plenty of lowend. Negative flanging is seen as having a more “hollow” and intense sound.
  • MoByp dip switch activates momentary bypass, activating pedal only when Bypass footswitch is pressed in.
  • Tap Control dip switch allows tap tempo to modulate Ramp rate (r) or phaser Rate (p). Bounce needs to be on to modulate Ramp speed.
  • Tap Division dip switch selects from “1, 2, 4” tap divisions (1) to “3, 6, 8” tap divisions (3).
  • Sweep dip switch selects where Ramp sweeps. In “t” (top) the ramping (or expression control) will occur between the current Ramp knob position and the max position (fully clockwise). In “b” (bottom) the range is set between the current knob position and the minimum position (fully counterclockwise).

Other

  • All-analog signal path.
  • Bypass footswitch activates or bypasses the effect via true relay bypass. Can by changed to a momentary bypass via a dip switch in the back of the pedal.
  • Tap Tempo footswitch sets the tap tempo and always honors the last two stomps.
  • Preset toggle switch recalls presets. Middle position reflects current knob positions, right position recalls right preset, and left position recalls left preset.
  • Exp input jack allows expression pedal or CV control of parameters selected via dip switches on back of pedal. When no parameters are set to Ramp, it manually controls the phaser sweep.
  • Tap/MIDI input jack can be used for tap input or output with a regular ¼” instrument cable.
  • Powered by 9-volt battery or 9VDC power adapter (consumes ~50mA).

The Spectre follows in the familiar foot-steps of its forebears, coming in the instantly recognizable Chase Bliss Audio compact enclosure that houses its array of 6 knobs, 4 flip-switches, 2 foot-switches, and 16 top-mounted dip-switches. Mono Input & Output jacks, dedicated EXP/CV & TAP/MIDI jacks, and a power input jack round out the outside parameter control and I/O functionality. This set-up offers a range of parameter control and depth that eclipses any non-Chase Bliss Audio mono modulation pedal or just about any analog guitar pedal from any brand for that matter.

While the early production Warped Vinyl MKII, Wombtone MKII, & Gravitas had an adhesive sticker that displayed the dip-switch parameter functions, all current Chase Bliss Audio pedals including the Spectre now have this information screen-printed on the pedal. No stickers to worry about peeling off. It’s nice that CBA are always making these little improvements.

Upon opening the Spectre’s enclosure you’re greeted to one of the most densely packed pedals you’ll ever see. Chase Bliss Audio pedals are known for their efficient housing of components, and the Spectre is filled to the brim with transistors, resistors, 3207D chips, and more across both of its PCB’s, the analog board’s components being through-hole mounted & hand-populated. You’ll also notice several trimpots, but these aren’t for end-user adjustment. Part of the complexity of building the Spectres lies in carefully calibrating the pedal. Resist the temptation to fiddle around with these.

You’ll also notice something missing inside if you’ve ever peeked inside another CBA pedal. The Spectre is the first Chase Bliss Audio pedal to forgo the option of using a 9-volt battery for power. There’s simply no room inside for a battery! You’ll need a professional pedal power supply for this one, but since most guitarists use power supplies anyway, that shouldn’t be a concern for most people.
