The Ascension Device vintage-voiced reverb is a solid pedal with some excellent control, exciting features, and a voice that emphasizes a bit more of the higher frequencies on the EQ.
This board will allow you to build the perfect tool to make the best psych-rock ever! Prepare yourself because you will get everything from room, spring, plate, psychedelia, unique ambient sounds, and some classic slapback style reverb.
The Ascension Device reverberation machine will take your sound to new heights! This device is a vintage-voiced versatile reverb that will grant you tons of lap back and unique atmosphere delays. With its set of intuitive controls, you can dial in just the right amount and type of reverberation you need.
Based on the Levitation, this circuit is a close cousin of EarthQuaker’s very spring-reverb-like Ghost Echo, though in practice they differ significantly. Where the Ghost Echo had an attack function (which added clarity to pick attack) and a dwell knob, the Ascension Device replaces them with a reverb-length toggle and decay, atmosphere, and tone controls.
The four knobs and the switch control can do wonders! Let’s take a look:
Mix: This is one of the most helpful controls of the board regulating the wet signal blended with the dry. If you want more reverb, dial it clockwise, you need less, go counterclockwise.
Decay: Controls the length of the reverb decay. Longer clockwise, shorter counterclockwise.
Tone: This is an input bandwidth control for the reverberated signal. All the way, clockwise to reduce all low-end content making a brighter reverb, turning counterclockwise permits lower end to pass through, giving in a fuller reverberated tone.
Atmosphere: the harmonic regeneration control! It provides the upper frequencies of the reverb trails back through to produce a more harmonic (ringing) reverb. Get more atmosphere by dialing clockwise, less by dialing counterclockwise.
Length Switch: general control for decay time. Longer to the right and Shorter to the left.
This handy pedal offers endless potential for your creativity and is a must-have for any individual who is unsatisfied with little and wants to explore the limits!
