Strymon El Capistan V2

Strymon El Capistan V2 The best-selling Strymon El Capistan, regarded by many as one of the most authentic vintage magnetic tape echo emulator pedals you can buy, has evolved! This second-generation stompbox retains the same warm, saturated, and rich tones offered by the original but adds significant new features — to give you additional flexibility, power and ease-of-use on stage and in the studio. Strymon has most notably added a 'Spring' reverb algorithm/knob into the equation — perfect for embellishing your echoes with gentle ambience — while further upgrades include full MIDI implementation for control over just about every single El Capistan parameter, a premium analogue JFET input circuit, and a new ARM DSP chip for increased processing power. Everything from classic slapback echoes to psychedelic space explorations are possible with Strymon's new and improved El Capistan V2! Key Features 3 tape machine types: Fixed, Multi, and Single. Each type has 3 unique modes and extensive control over tape quality, machine health and tone. Intuitive and powerful sound-shaping controls allow you to easily dial-in an endless variety of inspiring echo flavours. Ultra low-noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters and a 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response. A dedicated 'Spring' reverb control, with finely-tuned algorithm capturing the essence of the small spring reverb tanks found in classic tape echo machines of yesteryear. 'Wow & Flutter' knob adjusts the amount of mechanically-related tape speed fluctuations, from the crisp delays of a fully-cleaned and serviced machine, to the warbly pitch-modulated echoes of a road-worn piece of gear. Effortlessly create multi-layered ambient soundscapes with the tape-style "sound-on-sound" looper, all without the headaches of tape machine maintenance and repair. Full MIDI implementation lets you control just about every knob, switch and setting remotely via the EXP/MIDI jack or USB-C connector. Delay time can be synchronized via MIDI Clock Sync, and the sync setting can be saved for each preset. Save and recall all the new sounds you create via 300 onboard MIDI preset locations. Class A JFET preamp input ensures uncompromised dynamics, exceptional touch sensitivity and superb responsiveness. Full stereo in/out capabilities means zero compromises when it comes to signal routing or pedal placement. Select mono or stereo (TRS) input with the flick of the rear panel switch. Easily control the El Capistan V2 with an expression pedal or MultiSwitch Plus. New ARM DSP chip provides more processing power for every sonic nuance, with less energy consumption on your pedalboard. True/buffered bypass, for a 100% unprocessed signal or a conditioned signal with preserved high-end integrity. Adjustable line/instrument input signal level, with line level mode providing 10dB of added headroom for use with active bass guitars, synths, amps effects loops, vocals and more.
