SolidGoldFX Electroman MKII
Analog voiced tape-delay with Warp-switch.
The core of the Electroman MKII is two cascaded digital delay lines, making bold strides in the arena of PT2399 chips. The PT2399 is a chip developed for DJ rigs and karaoke machines, and when tuned correctly, blurs the line between digital and analog.
The mode toggle takes advantage of that unique dual-line approach, giving you standard delay or one that sends the repeats only to the second chip for a cool half-time sound that will sit front and center on your next ambient or shoegaze record.
The second footswitch of the Electroman MKII retains our warp feature, which sends the repeats ramping up to self-oscillation for ambient textures and spatial soundscapes. But this time, you control the sensitivity with one of three settings on the warp toggle, from gentle nudging into infinity to instant freakouts.
Delay repeats are backed by an extremely musical modulation circuit, which has three selectable speed ranges and a generous flutter control, which increases the depth as you roll it up. This control turns the Electroman MKII into an instant tape echo simulator, where you can dial in just the right amount of digital wear and tear.
