TWA Introduces the DM-02 Dynamorph

TWA DM-02 DynamorphTWA has introduced the DM-02 Dynamorph, an envelope-controlled harmonic generator. The versatile pedal gives distortion, fuzz, filter, and synth effects in one unique unit.

“Featuring a distortion circuit where the amount and type of saturation is intricately linked to the input signal level, the TWA DM-02 Dynamorph creates multi-layered, highly complex waveforms that “morph” your instrument’s harmonic structure in bizarre yet decidedly musical ways,” TWA writes. “Add to this an envelope-detection circuit that controls distortion events via playing dynamics, and you have the extremely powerful tool for musical expression that is Dynamorph.”

If you’re wondering what that could sound like, check out this bass demo:

The DM-02 has plenty of tweakability with dual cascading preamps that have independent level controls. An Ovid/Kafka mode switch toggles between two different EQ curves, while the Morph switch allows for envelope control of the distortion. Even with all the crazy effects, it has a Dry level control to blend in your clean signal.

The TWA DM-02 Dynamorph also features S3 “Shortest Send” relay-based True-Bypass switching as well as an optional expression pedal control input. It’s made in the USA and carries a street price of $299.

TWA DM-02 Dynamorph Features:

Dynamically responsive to input signal – Input directly controls type/degree of distortion event.
Dual cascading Preamps – Each with independent Level control.
Ovid/Kafka mode switch – offers two different EQ curves as well as an obscure literary reference
Switchable “Morph” function allows Envelope control of the Distortion effect.
Dedicated Dry Level Control – allows user to blend in Dry signal to taste.
S3 “Shortest Send” relay-based True-Bypass switching for transparent operation in bypass.
Optional Expression pedal control of Gain Level for additional effects.
“Butterfly” LED array reacts to playing dynamics
