A COLORFUL SUITE OF MUSICAL EFFECTS

Chroma Console is a flexible multi-effect pedal that takes inspiration from the eccentricity, grit, and lively instability of beloved vintage recording technology, combines it with brand new sounds, and delivers it all through an intuitive user interface that puts wide-ranging sonic experimentation at your fingertips.

Easily re-order effects and experiment with different signal chains—process reverb through a fuzz, run a reverse delay into a pitch shifter, or run the evocative, gritty sound of an aging cassette recorder into a stereo double-tracker. Record knob movements with GESTURE, create ephemeral loops with CAPTURE, and dial in the amount of randomness, chaos, or nostalgic warble that your composition requires with DRIFT.

11 NEW EFFECTS

60 SECOND PHRASE LOOPER

Microcosm's 11 groundbreaking effects (with a total of 44 preset variations) allow you to slice, stretch, rearrange, and manipulate your playing in musical ways. Tweak the sound further using Microcosm's built-in pitch modulation, lush stereo reverb (with 4 selectable modes), and resonant lowpass filter.

When you’ve found a sound you like, the built-in stereo phrase looper can capture up to 60 seconds of your performance and even allows for layering phrases from different effects. All loops, overdubs, and settings can be saved and recalled later using the pedal’s 16 user presets
