Mythos Pedals has launched its first foray into the world of delay effects, the Oracle Analog Echo.
Originally conceived as a digital unit, Mythos reworked its design to instead hark back to classic analogue bucket brigade delays such as the BOSS DM-2 or the EHX Memory Man.
The sound is centred on two reissued MN3205 bucket brigade chips, thanks to a circuit designed by John Snyder of Electronic Audio Experiments. It results in a total of 600ms of delay time with, of course, a warm filtered quality applied to the repeats.
The controls on the pedal are a trio of self-explanatory knobs for time, feedback and mix. There’s also a tap-tempo footswitch, which adds in the ability to push the delay time past the 600ms maximum of the knob for a more broken sound.
Other features include top-mounted jacks, a socket to add in an external tap-tempo footswitch and true-bypass switching.
