Earthquaker Devices Transmisser
a space odyssey
Based on the venerable Spin FV1 delay chip, a favourite of boutique builders, the Transmisser weirds it up by adding two filters on top of a modulation and pitch shift to the core reverb sound. With a fair bit of tweaking, there are some more standard-type digital reverb sounds on offer here, but in general, the Transmisser shines when you try to exploit its strangeness, and then blend the ideas it helps you create into your playing. With the Rate down, and both Freq and Darkness pulled back, there are some truly unique alien whale sounds to be enjoyed – and isn’t that what we all need from time to time?
