Animals Pedal Relaxing Walrus Delay
RELAXING WALRUS DELAY is a standard and easy-to-use delay effect that is essential for adding “squeal” to guitar play.
Blend, Time and Repeat's simple control knobs are necessary and sufficient to give you the settings you need without hesitation.
The delay time is as wide as 1 to 500 ms, covering doubling to short delay, medium and long delay.
The delay tone of the RELAXING WALRUS DELAY is close to a vintage analog delay and also has the clearness as a digital delay. Tones finished with an exquisite balance can be set by the setting of the Blend knob to set the delay tone to a natural reverberation that mixes with the original sound and melts, or conversely make it stand out.
It also has a self-oscillation just like an analog delay, and can cover a wide range of applications from delays that are always on and delays to ultra-popular launchers.
It is an effect pedal that comes in handy when there is one pedal board.
The delay is also called the yamako effect, and it is an effect that repeats the played sound and mixes it with the original sound to create spatial spread and echo.
With this effect alone, you might think of it as a type of effect similar to reverb. In fact, you can do something similar.
The crucial difference between delay and reverb effects is that the sound you play is repeated as it is. The unique effect of this delay is a great help, especially for guitarists, to climb one level up.
· Sleek lead tone with depth
When transitioning from rhythm backing to lead, it is a common way to switch between boosters and distortions to make the sound louder or put it forward. However, when I mix and record band performances and listen to them, even if the sound is made louder, I may just feel loud and may not hear the lead as well as I thought.
At this time, when you step on the delay effect at the same time, the lead tone has added depth and it has a distinctly different presence from the tone of the back. At the same time, the edges of the sound are slightly rounded, making them easy to hear and smooth. At this time, it is a little longer delay time, the key to setting is to reduce the repeat.
· Always on with smooth backing play When
listening carefully to the guitar sound in a professional player's live, etc., there is often a slight delay. The delay effect is effective, for example, when playing smooth backing without breaking the sound even with long fret movement chord changes.
This is because it complements Sustain and has an effect that the tail end of the tone slowly disappears. Reduce blending and delay times, and set the repeat several times.
• Rhythmic and tricky play
delay effects repeat the input sound over and over. You can use that effect to create a tricky play or rhythmic backing.
To increase Blend, set the repeat modestly, and adjust the delay time carefully, it is possible to make a delay of 8 dots per dot and a delay using the delay without using a multifunctional digital delay. I can do it.
· Self oscillation
Self-oscillation, or self-oscillation, is a phenomenon where setting the repeat high makes the sound coming out of the delay effect louder, producing a distinctive sound like a screeching voice.
At this time, by changing the delay time, it is possible to change the pitch, timbre, rhythm of sound, etc. of the oscillating sound, and by playing the guitar or combining other effects, it is possible to create a chaotic world. I can do it.
When you want to stop the self-oscillation, you can fade the chaos sound naturally by lowering the repeat knob.
? RELAXING WALRUS DELAY can set the oscillation intensity by the internal trim pot. The default setting is to disable oscillation.
Foot switch is true bypass. It is powered by a 9 V battery or a standard center negative 9 VDC adapter.
