"The year is 2018 and you can digitally model any amplifier under the sun on a clock radio-type apparatus. You can order a hot dog sandwich on the internet and have it delivered straight to your face. A reality television star is President. Literally anything is possible. What do we do? We decide to build a lo-fi delay based on a processor meant for a cheap karaoke machine. Why? Because it sounds awesome and we are in the business of making things that sound awesome, that’s why." - EQD.
What up, cosmonauts? Welcome to the Space Spiral™! The Space Spiral is a dark and dreamy modulated delay designed to take you across the highways of fantasy. While the delay may be designed around a “dawn of digital” echo processor, the sound is out of this world, man. If you are a fan of the dreary echoes produced by old oil can delays or the ethereal sound of a well-loved tape delay, the Space Spiral is totally going to tickle your tone bone.
The Space Spiral’s delay time ranges from a tight 30 ms to a fast and loose 600 ms. Can you imagine having 600 ms of delay time at your fingertips? Out of this world! With all of this adjustable delay time, you create anything from a classic slapback to a rhythmic wash of cosmic proportions. You want to take it even further? Maybe to an astral plane? Crank up the repeats and let the infinite oscillation of the Space Spiral take you to the other side.
The Space Spiral also comes equipped with a powerful on-board modulation engine to take your tones to new zones. Feeling dangerous? Crank up the Depth and let that signal stretch into wild new dimensions! Wanna go further out on the edge with hotter intensity? Use the Shape control to morph the waveform from triangle to square and the Space Spiral will be spreading out her wings, jumpin’ off the track and shovin’ into overdrive. Is it moving too slowly for you? Can you feel the Space Spiral beggin’ you to touch and go? Use the Rate control to adjust the speed to your taste. Get those classic Leslie tones you crave. Get those wild pitch bends you dream about. Make the rate a subdivision of the delay time and fly away to the bright side of the moon.
The Space Spiral has a completely analog dry signal path, totally digital delay path and electronic relay-based true-bypass switching. It is powered by a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel and has a current draw of 50ma.
Each and every Space Spiral is built by the hands of cadets on the red line overload through the starry skies of Akron, Ohio.
Space Spiral™… It’ll get you through the night.
