Im Grunde simuliert das Chase Bliss Audio - Warped Vinyl den Effekt einer verzogenen und eiernden Vinyl-Schallplatte. Dass ist aber nur die Spitze des Eisbergs. Das Chase Bliss Audio - Warped Vinyl verfügt über einen analogen Signalpfad, aber jeder Knopf ist mit dem kleinen digitalen Gehirn (ja, ein Mikroprozessor) verbunden. Das Original/Gitarren/Instrumentensignal bleibt also analog und wird nie digital bearbeitet.
Das Chase Bliss Audio - Warped Vinyl fühlt sich so analog an wie eine Schallplatte oder Himbeereis. Also schön und lecker.
Ooey-gooey-analog goodness, revisited.
Originally conceived to simulate the effect of a warped vinyl record, but that is only scratching the surface of what Warped Vinyl mkII can do. This “true pitch” analog vibrato/chorus pedal features an all-analog signal path that can be dialed in to create limitless palette of vibrato and chorus. Warped Vinyl mkII has several changes, including a tone knob for shimmery, transparent vibrato/ chorus as well as an increased signal to noise ratio. Further, every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100% analog the entire time and never gets digitally processed. Since the control of the effect is digital, it opens up unprecedented effects and features that have never been heard or offered in analog stompboxes.
TONE (RAMP): Simply put, this is a magical knob. When you don’t have any dip switches assigned for ramping, this knob functions as a tone knob for the pitch-bending vibrato side on the pedal, it doesn’t affect the dry signal on the mix control. All the way clockwise is transparent and shimmery, and all the way counter-clockwise is dark and murky. Due to the digital control of this pedal, you can set this knob to control any of the five parameters individually or simultaneously (volume, mix, rpm, depth, warp) and have it either modulate or ramp-and-hold (rise or fall) via dip switches in the back of the pedal. Essentially, this knob controls the ramp time in which this takes place. You can even make a tremolo effect by choosing to modulate the volume knob.
VOLUME: Sets the level of the effect. This pedal has an internal voltage doubler and a nice JFET boost in it (that has some nice amp like distortion if pushed hard), so there is some boost and headroom on tap. Of course, the ramp knob or an expression pedal can control this knob. So, hey, it could be a volume pedal too; in fact, the elements used for this are the same as audiophile-grade attenuators used in hi-fi set ups.
MIX: Dial this in for 100% wet effect, 100% dry, or anything in-between. Parking this somewhere in the middle introduces chorus. Make sure to play with the tone knob as you dial this in as they are pretty interactive when it comes to chorus tones.
RPM: This controls the rate of the vibrato. This control can be over-ridden by the tap tempo switch.
1 – 2 – 4 (3 – 6 – 8) Toggle: This controls the tap division for tap tempo. A dip switch in the back of the pedal lets you access the “3 – 6 – 8” divisions if you so desire. You can also select tap divisions for the RPM or for ramping parameters dependent on where the “tap control” dip switch is set. Note that divisions are 2x slower for ramping.
DEPTH: This controls how wide the vibrato goes. Crank it clockwise for insane, pitch-bending modulation. In fact, mkII has a wider, crazer vibrato range than mkI, so enjoy that.
WARP: This controls the center point of the modulation. Crank it to counterclockwise, the wave is going to ramp up quickly and ramp down gradually. If you crank it clockwise, the wave will ramp up gradually and ramp down quickly. If this knob is straight up and down at 12:00 it will give a perfectly symmetric wave.
Left Wave Shape Toggle: This controls the shape of the first half of the wave modulation. Left for sine, middle for triangle, and right for square.
Right Wave Shape Toggle: This controls the shape of the second half of the wave modulation. Left for square, middle for triangle, and right for sine.
The depth, warp, and wave shape toggles comprise the ModuShape™ engine, which give unprecedented control over the shape of your modulation.
Bypass Stomp: Activates or bypasses the effect. This can be changed to a momentary bypass via a dip switch in the back of the pedal if it is desired. This pedal is “True Bypass” via a relay, and is extremely quiet.
Tap Stomp: Sets tap tempo, always honors the last two stomps.
Lower Toggle: This switch recalls presets. The right position recalls one preset, the left position recalls a different preset. The middle position will always reflect wherever the knob positions, toggle positions, and dip switch positions are currently at. In order to save to the right preset slot, you hold down the right stomp (bypass) for 3 seconds and then hold down both stomp switches simultaneously for another 3 seconds. The LED blinks and your setting is saved. For the left slot, you do the same thing but hold the left stomp (tap) first. If you recall a preset, and move a knob, you will notice that the LED above the toggle goes dim. This is to signify that something has changed on the preset. If you want to save this change in the preset, you will have to save it again. IN: ¼” mono input jack.
OUT: ¼” mono output jack.
EXP / CV: ¼” TRS jack for expression pedal (parameter selectable via dip switch in the back of the pedal. Tip goes to wiper, and we recommend Mission expression pedals (EP-1 or EP-25k). Can also be used to for 0-5V Control Voltage (CV) on tip – the ring should be left floating in this case. There are many expression pedals that work with Chase Bliss Audio products, the Mission stuff just happens to be what we have here.
TAP / MIDI: ¼” TRS jack. This can be used as a tap input or output with a regular ¼” instrument cable. In addition, it can be used to interface the pedal with an Empress Effects Midibox. Much more information on this in the MIDI section of this manual (at the end).
Power & Other Info: This pedal consumes ~25mA and should be operated with an alkaline 9V battery or a standard 2.1mm 9V DC center negative adapter. We recommend Voodoo Labs Pedal Power. Input impedance of this device is 1M, and output impedance is less than 1k. Expression / CV Control & Dip Switches: The Volume, Mix, RPM, Depth, and Warp dip switches in the left bank allow you to control parameters via ramping or an Expression Pedal / CV. Whenever you plug a ¼” in to the EXP / CV jack, the pedal automatically knows that you will be controlling parameters via expression or CV, not ramping. Direct Control of Waveform with Expression / CV: If you have something plugged in to the EXP / CV jack, but do not have any parameters selected via dip switch, you are allowed to control the waveform directly. For Warped Vinyl, this equates to an analog “whammy” type of effect. The range of this effect can be limited by the position of the Depth knob. For a maximum sweep, set the depth knob to its full clockwise position.
Setting Expression / CV Range: The range of the expression / CV is controlled by the parameter knob position and the “sweep” dip switch. For example, if you wanted an expression pedal to control the volume parameter from zero volume to unity gain, you would make sure the “sweep” dip switch is in the bottom position and set the volume knob at unity gain. If you need more volume you simply turn the volume knob up slightly. This will increase the maximum range of the expression pedal. This allows you to control multiple parameters with an expression pedal, but you can fine tune the range that you want for each parameter.

BewertungMartin(on 03.11.2016)Unmengen an Soundvariationen mit den DIP-Schaltern. Lediglich das Volume, welches auch als Gainboost fungiert muss bei einem cleanen Sound heruntergedreht werden. Muss ich nicht haben.
Daher 1 Punkt Abzug.
