Vahlbruch Spacetime V2
Update in the v2 version:
Kill-dry via internal switch, but the sound has of course remained the same!
The "SpaceTime" is a handmade echo pedal which combines in a unique way the advantages of analog and digital audio circuits. This results in a warm and deep sounding delay pedal, which is easy to operate and able to create analog delay typical self-oscillations. Your direct (dry) guitar signal is completely preserved in the analog domain - there is no latency for your original guitar signal! In a carefully designed parallel signal path only the generation of the echo signal is realized digitally. The "SpaceTime" has three control knobs to adjust your tone: The delay time is set by "Time", the number of echos can be changed by "Repeats" and the volume of the echo signal can be adjusted with the "Mix-Level" knob. An additional toggle switch allows you to alter the treble content of the echos. Switching from "bright" to "mellow" to "dark" gradually reduces the top end - resulting in a warm, deep and natural sounding echo. An internal DIP-switch allows you to select between "true bypass or "buffered bypass"" and a "kill dry"-mode.
With all these options the "SpaceTime" can be optimally integrated in any signal chain. Enjoy!
This pedal is equipped with our unique "MagTraB" switching technology:
Inside the button a magnet is integrated which position is measured by a sensor on the circuit board. If the button is now moved, e.g. if it is pressed downwards, the position of the magnet will also change. The sensor measures this change without any mechanical contact to the button and the information is send via a micro-controller to a gold-plated relay, which then does the actual audio signal switching.
The advantages of "MagTraB" footswitches:
You can choose if the pedal powers up in "on" or "bypass" state.
To change the state:
Step 1: Unplug the power supply cable.
Step 2: Hold down on/off "MagTraB" button.
Step 3: Plug in again the power supply cable.
Step 4: Release on/off "MagTraB"" button.
DONE! The next time your pedal powers up it will automatically start in the other state.
