Death By Audio Unveils the Phosphene Scream Delay and Reverb Pedal
Death By Audio has teamed up with The Black Angels and the Levitation Festival to create Phosphene Scream, a “space trippin’ delay, and reverb effects pedal.” The unit was designed to pay homage to psychedelic rock legacy of Austin, Texas.
“The Phosphene Scream combines two of the most sought-after effects in psychedelic music into a meticulously tuned delay and reverb unit that covers everything from shag-carpeted room sounds through realistic halls all the way to the kind of trippy never-ending delays that still cause flashbacks years later,” Death By Audio writes. “This one-of-a-kind lysergic ambience generator uses multiplied reflections of segments of comb-filtered waveforms to create a thick, sticky reverb with hazier vibes than long summer nights (and early mornings) in the Red River District.”
It has a three-knob layout with Reverb, Feedback, and Delay Time controls. It also has a filter toggle that changes the character of the repeats and reverberation between three settings: low passed, unfiltered, and high pass.
Although the demo is on guitar, you can get a taste of the pedal’s psychedelic nature in this demo:
The Phosphene Scream is available for pre-order for $200. It’s limited to 420 units.
