Relaxing Walrus Delay – Animals Pedals
RELAXING WALRUS DELAY is a standard and easy-to-use delay effect that is indispensable for adding “greatness” to guitar play.
The simple control knobs of Blend, Time, and Repeat are necessary and sufficient, and you can set the necessary settings without hesitation.
The delay time is as wide as 1 to 500 ms and covers doubling to short delay, medium and long delay.
The delay tone of the RELAXING WALRUS DELAY is close to that of a vintage analog delay, but at the same time it has the clearness of a digital delay. By setting the Blend knob, you can set the tone of the delicate balance to a natural reverberation that mixes the delay tone with the original sound and melts it, or conversely makes it stand out.
Equipped with self-oscillation just like an analog delay, it can cover a wide range of applications, from delays that are always on to delays that are transcendental jumping tools.
It is an effect pedal that comes in handy when there is one on the pedal board.
Delay, also called the Yamabiko effect, is an effect that repeats the sound you play and mixes it with the original sound to create a spatial spread and echo.
You might think of this effect alone as a type of effect similar to reverb. In fact, you can do something similar.
The decisive difference between a delay effect and a reverb effect is that the sound you play is simply repeated. The effect of this delay is a great help, especially for guitarists, to move up one level.
・ Smooth lead tone with depth
When transitioning from rhythm backing to lead, it’s common to switch boosters and distortions to make the sound louder or to the front. However, when I try to mix or record a band performance and listen to it, sometimes I feel loud even if the sound is loud, and I can’t hear the lead as well as I thought.
At this time, if you step on the delay effect at the same time, depth will be added to the lead tone, and it will have a presence distinctly different from the back tone. At the same time, the edges of the sound are slightly rounded, making it easier to hear and creating smooth tones. At this time, the secret of the setting is to set the delay time a little longer and the repeats less.
・ Always ON and smooth backing play When
listening to the guitar sound often in a live performance by a professional player, there is often a slight delay. For example, the delay effect is effective when playing a smooth backing without chopping the chords with long fret movements.
This is because it complements the sustain and produces the effect that the tail end of the tone gradually disappears. Try reducing the blend and delay times and setting the repeat to a few times.
・ Rhythmic and tricky play The
delay effect repeats the input sound many times. You can use that effect to create tricky play or rhythmic backing.
By setting Blend to a high level, setting the repeat modestly, and carefully adjusting the delay time, it is possible to sufficiently create a dotted 8-minute delay or a harmonious sound using a delay without using a multifunctional digital delay. I can do it.
Self-oscillation, or self-oscillation, is a phenomenon in which the sound produced by the delay effect becomes louder and louder with a high repeat setting, producing a peculiar sound like a screeching voice.
At this time, you can change the pitch, tone, or rhythm of the oscillating sound by moving the delay time, and if you play the guitar or combine other effects, you can create a chaotic world. I can do it.
When you want to stop self-oscillation, you can lower the repeat knob to naturally fade out the chaos sound.
* With the RELAXING WALRUS DELAY, you can set the oscillation strength with the internal trim pot. The default setting is to prevent oscillation.
The foot switch is true bypass. It is driven by a 9V battery or a standard center minus DC9V adapter.
The design is done by surf art painter Jonas Cleasson, who works in Australia.
