Dreadbox Stereo Shimmer Reverb Effects Processor for Synthesizer or Guitar

Dreadbox Darkness is a digital stereo reverb effect pedal suitable for fretted instruments and synthesizers. Instead of having several switched algorithms, Darkness has a single versatile and flexible algorithm that can create from small and smooth reflections up to huge shimmering and endless reverbs. Experimenting is strongly suggested!

  • Flexible shimmer reverb with gate function
  • 32-bit @ 48kHz digital effects processor
  • Variable time scale with triangle or sample & hold modulation
  • Selectable pitch shift ±12 semitones with variable mix amount for shimmering sounds
  • Up to 30-second decay times
  • 2-pole high pass / low pass damping filter
  • Freeze function loops 150ms of the input signal
  • Versatile gate effect with variable attack and release times
  • True stereo input and output
  • Selectable tails bypass

Darkness has a simple and intuitive control panel with deeper 'left shift' and 'right shift' editing parameters easily accessed by holding down either of its soft-touch stomp switches.
