Boutique effects pedal manufacturer Death By Audio Effects Pedals have announced the limited-edition ‘Phosphene Scream’ space trippin’ delay and reverb pedal. The pedal is available for pre-order from the Levitation webstore on September 12, 2019.
A collaborative design between Alex Maas and Christian Bland of The Black Angels with Oliver Ackermann of Death By Audio and A Place to Bury Strangers, the ‘Phosphene Scream’ is a compact delay and reverb effects unit designed to pay tribute to the unmistakable sounds of Austin’s psychedelic rock legacy while also being a reverb and delay pedal so totally awesome that it’ll dig craters on the moon and give you real-life flashbacks.
The ‘Phosphene Scream’ combines two of the most sought-after effects in psychedelic music into a meticulously tuned delay and reverb unit that covers everything from shag-carpeted room sounds through realistic halls all the way to the kind of trippy never-ending delays that still cause flashbacks years later. This one-of-a-kind lysergic ambience generator uses multiplied reflections of segments of comb-filtered waveforms to create a thick, sticky reverb with hazier vibes than long summer nights (and early mornings) in the Red River District.
The pedal features an intuitive three-knob, one-switch multifunction control layout that allows players to warp from small and fast reflections to infinitely mirrored, washed-out micro-loops of sound. Reverb simultaneously adjusts the reverb decay time and wet/dry mix, Feedback sets the delay volume and number of repeats, and D-Time adjusts the delay time from ultra-tight comb filtering reflections through the end of time.
The ‘Phosphene Scream’ is limited to 420 units worldwide and is available for pre-order exclusively on the Levitation webstore as of September 12, 2019.
Any remaining units will be for sale during LEVITATION in Austin, TX November 7-10, 2019.
