Bringing together analogue tone-shaping and DSP processing power, the Pigtronix Echolution 2 delivers impeccable delay effects. The pedal offers a richness of presence and deep editing thanks to analog Class-A transistor limiters and non-linear tape emulator stages and filters, and a 24-bit, variable clock, multi-tap delay line.
Once an audio signal is run through it, the Pigtronix Echolution 2 offers an incredible amount of tone shaping and control, with even more than may first meet the eye. The pedal is completely programmable with the free associated software, where presets can be created and loaded into the pedal. This is PC/Mac software is also where you can load firmware updates to the pedal and you can even access the sounds and the editing functionality of the Echolution 2 Deluxe.
Filters and special effects on the pedal can also be assigned to an external pedal and there is envelope control available for each knob. Additionally all functions of the pedal are MIDI controllable.
Control of the pedal’s delay time is available from a number of sources, either the on-board knob or tap tempo, or via MIDI. The delay range extends from 10-ms to 12-seconds, and changing the delay time is done with a smooth pitch change, though allowing for octave jumping, up and down. The delay can even be switched off so that the modulation, shifting, and filters of the Pigtronix Echolution 2 can be used independently from the delay.
60 Custom Presets
Made up of 6 banks of 10, the Pigtronix Echolution 2 offers 60 slots for custom presets, which can saved and recalled from the pedal itself, an external footswitch or MIDI preset change command. In addition the included software gives you fuller control, with deep editing options, as well the ability to download artist presets to the pedal and upload your own settings to the internet.
Inputs and Outputs
The Pigtronix Echolution 2 offers stereo inputs and outputs and utilises an analog dry path and analog filters and non-linear saturation stages before and after the digital delay line. It is this process that gives the pedal its signature sound, higher fidelity, and exceptional functionality.
With the pedal’s MIDI I/O you are afforded greater control and functionality options. The MIDI IN allows you to control preset changes, Tap Tempo and LFO synchronization with an external controller, along with giving control over every function available with the pedal. MIDI OUT gives tap tempo control over the Pigtronix Infinity Looper (sold separately).
The pedal’s USB port enables connection to your PC/Mac, so you can utilise the aforementioned free software programme.
Expression Pedal Control
Connecting an expression pedal to the Pigtronix Echolution 2 opens up a surprising number of functions, as every knob on the Echolution 2 can be mapped to the expression pedal. Furthermore, utilising the included software, multiple functions can be assigned to it, and an envelope follower can be mapped to any parameter, with function’s sensitivity and release times definable by you.
