To create modulation with absolute attention paid to every detail, Strymon engineers have spent an exorbitant amount of time studying every element of some of the most popular and classic tremolo, phaser, chorus, and other effects from the last 50 years, so that they could be recreated and then pushed even further, for more versatility and sonic dexterity than ever.
The result of all this effort is the incredible Strymon Mobius Multi-modulation Guitar Effects Pedal. This single pedal is stacked with 12 inspiration modulation effects, with full control given by a selection of five knobs allowing you to sculpt your tone to a finite degree, so you easily transport the idea in your mind to your amp.
On top of all this, the pedal has been crafted from high-quality components, with a fully-utilised SHARC DSP at its core giving you the tone you always wanted.
The sonic undulations are deep and complex, and at times sound impossibly real—to the point of being confounding.-PREMIERGuitar
12 Studio-Class Modulation Types
Crafted to deliver meticulous and detailed modulation, the Strymon Mobius Multi-modulation has twelve modulation types to choose from, all of which are fully adjustable. These are: Chorus, Flanger, Rotary, Vibe, Phaser, Filter, Formant, Vintage Trem, Pattern Trem, Autoswell, Destroyer, and Quadrature.
Five Tone-shaping Knobs and 200 Presets
Absolute mastery over these awesome modulation types is afforded by the unit’s five tone-shaping knobs. These are: Speed, Depth, Level, Param 1, Param 2. With differing menu-driven parameters for each modulation type allowing for extended tone-shaping options, the Param 1 and Param 2 knobs come in very handy, as they can be assigned to the parameters you use most and can be stored as part of a preset’s make up.
Speaking of presets, the Strymon Mobius Multi-modulation allows you to save, name, and recall up to 200, which are easily-selectable with the pedal’s footswitches (or alternatively via an external MIDI controller), and are identifiable by the LED display.
Expression Pedal Control
In addition to the tone-shaping controls and assignable parameters lies even more control, with the expression pedal input allowing any knob, or combination of knobs, to be controlled via an expression pedal. The knob/s you assign to it can also be saved for each preset you create. Alternatively the input can be used to hook up an external Tap switch to control LFO Speed remotely.
More Inputs and Outputs
Alongside the expression pedal input, the Strymon Mobius Multi-modulation also has MIDI input and output so you can connect MIDI gear, select presets via MIDI, synchronise your LFO time to MIDI clock or remotely control any knob, parameter, or switch.
In addition there are stereo inputs and outputs, which can be used for their primary function or they can be toggle with to Pre/Post mode. Pre/Post mode is a flexible option that allows you to have the Mobius in two locations on your board, without rewiring. So you can chain your effects change between songs, without unplugging anything.
