The Borderland

IMG_3098_edited.jpg

DESCRIPTION

The Borderland is an advanced digital reverb with a versatile tap tempo LFO/modulation section.  At its core, is a reverb algorithm designed specifically with an ambient player in mind.  It has an adjustable low-pass filter to alter the character of the reverb, ranging from small room reverb to a cavernous, dark hall reverb. 

 

There are 8 LFO waveforms to choose from and 4 unique modulation modes (tremolo, chorus, triple octave tremolo, and octave slide).  Set the LFO rate manually by using the “Velocity” knob or using the tap tempo option (right footswitch).

 

The left footswitch sends the pedal into near infinite sustain with the trails teetering on the edge of self-oscillation.  The “Effect” and “Clean” knobs allow you to independently dial in the perfect ratio of wet and dry signals.  Adjusting the “Ambiance” and “Brilliance” knobs sets the length of decay and the cutoff frequency of the onboard low pass filter. 

 

The Borderland is the perfect pedal for creating lush, modulating, ambient textures. 

Modulation Modes

The four modulation modes can be accessed through different toggle switch combinations.

Tremolo
Left Toggle - dB / Right Toggle - OFF

LFO affects the volume of the reverb signal, creating a tremolo effect

Chorus

Left Toggle - HZ / Right Toggle - OFF

LFO affects the pitch of the reverb signal, creating a chorus effect

Triple Octave Tremolo

Left Toggle - dB / Right Toggle ON

Three Octaves of Reverb, LFO affects volume of reverb, creating a vintage organ effect

Octave Slide

Left Toggle - HZ / Right Toggle ON

LFO crossfades between original pitch and octave up, creating an octave slide effect 

CONTROLS

Knobs

“Clean” – Sets the volume of the original dry signal
“Ambiance” – Sets the overall decay of the reverb trails

“Brilliance” – Sets the cutoff frequency of the low pass filter

“Effect” – Sets the volume of the wet reverb signal

“Velocity” – Manually sets the LFO rate

“Modulation” – Sets the depth of the modulation

“Waveform” – Sets the waveform type.  The 8 waveforms are listed on the back of the pedal.

 

Footswitches

Left – Sends the pedal into near infinite sustain

Middle – Master On/Off

Right – Tap Tempo

“Clock Input” – The clock input can received traditional tap tempo or 5V modular clock signals (gates/triggers).
