NAMM 2020: Optical Spring Reverb System

Light Pedal uses infrared optical sensors to bring out the full timbral and harmonic range of a spring reverb tank      17/01/20

Gamechanger Audio has announces the official release of Light Pedal. They tell us that it uses the Optical Spring Reverb System developed by the company and opens doors to some new, unheard analog effects like Optical Reverb Tremolo, Optical Reverb Modulation and Optical Harmonic Shimmer. Heres a description in their own words...

 Optical Spring Reverb System
 Light Pedal is the world’s first analog Optical Spring Reverb system that uses Infra-Red optical sensors to harvest the full timbral and harmonic range of a Spring Reverb tank. The Light Pedal uses extremely sensitive optical pairs, placed at specific regions of the spring to detect very nuanced movements on the Spring’s surface, as Sound-waves travel through it. This method opens up a much wider range of frequencies, harmonics, overtones and textures that are otherwise lost in the mechanical Reverberation process. Using optical sensors also opens doors to some new effects types, such as Optical Reverb Tremolo, Optical Reverb Modulation and Optical Harmonic Shimmer. The result is a wide variety of Reverb sounds ranging from classic to experimental to pure magic.
