Eidolon - A Spectral Ensemble Machine

Multi-FX device packs a bucket-brigade delay ensemble, spectral effects, tap delay and tremolo      17/04/19

Puremagnetik has releases Eidolon, which they describe as Spectral Ensemble Machine. They tell us that it is a multi-effect device that brings together a bucket-brigade delay ensemble, spectral effects, a tap delay and tremolo.

A spokesperson said, "Eidolon is capable of smudging, smoothing and thickening almost anything that is fed into it. Most of all, it is designed as a tool of experimentation."

Here's more details in Puremagnetik's own words...

Ensemble Effect

Eidolon's ensemble effect aims to emulate a classic '70s string synthesizer. Eidolon's first circuit is a bucket-brigade delay. It has six short delays wired in series, all of them slowly modulating at different speeds. This gives it a calmly rolling chorus effect that can be described as "lush" and "warm".

Spectral Blurring

Eidolon's spectral blur section analyzes incoming audio, writes it to a small database and then interpolates all of those values very, very quickly. In plain English, it smudges audio much like a painter smudges paint across a canvas. This process can turn piano phrases into cloudy ambient smears, remove the transients from drum beats and make guitars blur into the horizon of the next measure.

Delay and Tremolo

Finally, after the ensemble and spectral blurring, the signal passes through a multi-tap delay and tremolo effect. Adding delay to the signal chain augments the sound with echoes and space. The tremolo effect makes the sound pulsate from slow peaks and valleys to a rapid, oscillating frenzy. Between these two effects (in conjunction with Ensemble and Blur) one can travel many dimensions away from the original material into a vast world of experimentation!
