Mastro Valvola has unveiled its latest product, the Lysergic Emotions Module (LEM) multi-head delay pedal.
The LEM offers up to eight ambience types, ranging from a standard reverse delay to a lo-fi spatial ambience delay-reverb. Presets can be toggled via the right footswitch and up to four presets can be stored within the LEM.
The LEM’s front panel features four knobs for wet/dry, delay and feedback. The fourth Special/filter knob allows the user to control the special feature of each ambience mode, while its secondary function sets the frequency of the analogue filter applied to the wet signal. Going to the left emphasises the low frequencies, while turning the dial to the right brings out more of the medium-high frequencies.
Other features of the LEM include separate dry-wet control as well as a CTRL input, which supports either a EXP/CV or remote switch for managing different functions of the pedal. The LEM also offers two bypassing options: true bypass and Timed Bypass System (TBS). The latter can be toggled in conjunction with the Shift button to allow for trails, where the delay effect persists and decays naturally after the effect is turned off.
