Horizon Devices has announced its latest effects pedal, the Flux Echo.
Contrary to the Misha Mansoor’s pedal brand’s first two products, the Flux Echo is a time-based effect – rather than the Precision Drive or Apex Preamp pedals. It combines analogue delay with ambient reverb, offering a selection of different flavour combinations.
The central ‘flux mode’ switch selects between three different modes: a warm, ambient reverb with clean analogue delay repeats, a lightly modulated reverb with a smooth reverse delay, and a shimmer reverb with a tape-style echo.
These are all controlled by four control knobs, as well as a momentary tap/hold switch. The knobs control the reverb’s decay, the delay feedback amount, the wet/dry mix, and the tone of the effect. You can use the tone control to roll off a considerable amount of treble from the
Delay time is controlled exclusively by the tap-tempo footswitch – there’s no separate time knob. Holding this footswitch engages a freeze mode, holding both the delay and reverb trail in place.
The pedal also supports stereo in/out, which can also split the mono signal in two. Finally, you can engage or disengage reverb trails by holding the bypass footswitch.
