Description

From SolidGoldFX:

The debate over which type of delay is “the best” is one that has plagued guitar shops and internet forums for half a century. On one hand, we have analog purists that prefer the murky degraded repeats of an analog delay, while digital users prefer the exacting repeats of ones and zeroes. Personally, we just like delays that are excellent, and our Electroman MKII is just that: An excellent, feature-rich delay that does everything right.

The core of the Electroman MKII is two cascaded digital delay lines, making bold strides in the arena of PT2399 chips. The PT2399 is a chip developed for DJ rigs and karaoke machines, and when tuned correctly, blurs the line between digital and analog.

The mode toggle takes advantage of that unique dual-line approach, giving you standard delay or one that sends the repeats only to the second chip for a cool half-time sound that will sit front and center on your next ambient or shoegaze record.

The second footswitch of the Electroman MKII retains our warp feature, which sends the repeats ramping up to self-oscillation for ambient textures and spatial soundscapes. But this time, you control the sensitivity with one of three settings on the warp toggle, from gentle nudging into infinity to instant freakouts.

Delay repeats are backed by our extremely musical modulation circuit, which has three selectable speed ranges and a generous flutter control, which increases the depth as you roll it up. This control turns the Electroman MKII into an instant tape echo simulator, where you can dial in just the right amount of digital wear and tear

While the Electroman MKII is equipped with buffered bypass, our tails switch lets you decide whether or not the Electroman MKII chokes off the repeats when switched off, or leaves them trailing into your amp when bypassed. This feature lets you sculpt your sound just how you like, allowing for precision interplay with your other effects by affecting just one passage.

Level, repeat and time controls come standard, with the time control maxing out at 1 second of warm delay. The Electroman MKII’s color knob will settle the debate between analog and digital snobs by shaving treble content from the repeats as the control is increased.

An extra jack on the left edge takes the Electroman MKII to the next level: The fx loop jack lets you connect a stereo Y-cable to as many auxiliary pedals as you like, with the looped effect applying itself to the repeats. Try an octave pedal for true space exploration, a ring modulator for a lo-fi delay and even a volume pedal for swells of repeats.

Tone is always the goal, so if you want an outstanding delay unit that hacks through the vines of tiered menus and other complicated fluff, let the Electroman MKII be your machete.

Knobs:

  • Level: Changes the amount of wet signal from nothing at all to highly involved.
  • Repeat: At zero, you’ll find the humblest of all delays: the slapback. At full-blast, the repeats will run away and overtake your signal.
  • Color: This control takes a little treble off the top as you turn it. Fully left is bare-naked digital, and turning it up increases the murk.
  • Flutter: Controls the modulation depth. Keeping this control at zero shuts the circuit off.
  • Time: Changes the delay time from a double tracking-esque 70 milliseconds to a full lengthy second.

Toggle Switches:

  • Warp (toggle): Changes the intensity of the Warp footswitch across three modes, from subtle (center) assertive (left) to imminent lift-off (right).
  • Mode: Changes between standard delay (left) and a special second mode(right), which sends the repeats slamming into the second delay line at half time.
  • Speed: Offers three different speed settings of the modulation circuit – slow in the center position, fast when toggled right and medium in the left position. See also: flutter knob.
  • Tails: The Electroman MKII is buffered bypass, and this switch lets you decide how you want the repeats to behave with the pedal switched off: choked off when switched left, or trailing when switched right.

Auxiliary:

  • FX Loop Jack: This jack lets you attach a stereo Y-cable, allowing you to patch in any number of effects. These effects let you apply external effects only to the repeats, for endless amounts of fun. You can even run a full external pedalboard in this loop. We won’t tell. In addition, the loop also doubles an an expression input to control the level knob.
  • Input: Instrument or other pedal goes here.
  • Output: Amplifier or other pedal goes here.
  • Warp Footswitch: Engaged self-oscillation when and where you want it, and relents when you release it.
  • True Bypass/Trails Footswitch: Turns effect on and off.

Power: The Electroman II requires a center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 40mA of current (not included). Almost all power supplies meet this requirement, but check yours first.

TESTIMONIALS

Grabbed a Roland RE-201 (early edition killer pre-amp) and Roland DC-50. Absolutely STUNNING. These guys truly live up to the hype. They are meticulous in caring for the gear. Also, I have a few guitar pedal and plug-in emulations of tape-echo sounds and after plugging in the real unit I can't tell you how insane the difference is. It is incredible. Especially that tone from the early pre-amp! I am totally amazed. I am in heaven :) They made it safely to Nashville from the UK and were packed really really well! Thank you so much!! Worth every penny.

Chance Allen

Fantastic. From initial contact to the product landing at my door the service provided was outstanding. Safe and secure shipping, quality serviced product.

Tom Johnston

“The Space Echo made its way to me - it looks and sounds beyond dreams, thanks guys for your great service and communication.”

Julius Bonson

"DREAM. COME. TRUE. My music has taken me around the world a few times...and if you are like me and absolutely adore vintage gear...Soundgas is the stuff of LEGENDS. It's the shop that people like us search for our whole lives- fantastic and rare selections, and the technical know-how to repair and or mod these vintage items to get them into shape to flow with your modern setup."

Tom Gossin

"Finally, a company that tracks down all those brilliant curiosities that bring so much character and personality to a studio."

Matthew Herbert

"Still in shock! Can not believe how good the seller is. This product was inspected, and shipped from the UK to the USA quicker than orders from my home state. Highly recommend these guys."

Thomas Tedesco

“If you are a vintage audio gear head then this is the place you have been looking for all your life. Pretty much any piece of classic or obscure kit that you are after is available here... But the clincher for me is that the gear they sell has been restored by their top techs (unless otherwise noted) which is really very important when dealing with, for example, synths from 30 years ago.”

Lincoln Barrett / High Contrast

“If not a new language, then at least a very challenging, old dialect that will take me some time to assimilate. I’ve been waiting a long time for the challenge. Thank you @soundgasltd, she’s a beaut...and nobody prepares and packs like you fine folks.”

Justin Meldal-Johnsen

"Packed with love and care. A stampede couldn't have crushed this thing. Works great and sounds like a dream. I love you Soundgas."

Ben Van Vlissingen

“I’ve bought a number of items from Soundgas recently, and have been really impressed with their service. It takes the stress out of buying vintage gear to know it’s been properly (and faithfully) serviced or restored. Their after-sales service has also been exemplary. Highly recommended.”

David Wrench

“I have bought two Moog synths from Soundgas over the past year, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about their selection of vintage products, the level of service, diligent responses to email, and expedient shipping with copious protective packaging. Soundgas is an impressive operation. My synths also sound amazing! These folks have made my vintage keyboard dreams come true in short order!”

J Yates

“Imagine the perfect eBay.... with everything you never knew you wanted… and you can rest assured that your vintage and rare wobbly sound device will turn up on time and in one piece and possibly in even better condition that when it left the workshop. Soundgas - literally amazing."

Josh Lloyd-Watson & Tom McFarland - Jungle

"Soundgas offer a great service, sourcing esoteric gear that works great."

Tom Rowlands - Chemical Brothers

"Soundgas has an unbelievable selection of the cool, old stuff that’s hard to find. Tony knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make sure the transaction is a smooth one. Thanks guys!"

Tucker Martine - Flora Recording

"Excellent equipment, wonderful service. I fully recommend Soundgas to anyone in the vintage gear market and I will definitely be a return customer. The gear itself was exactly as advertised and in great condition."

Hallam Kite

"The packing job to get it over to the US was superb, and the sound and performance of my Space Echo exceeds all of my expectations. I hope to do business with Soundgas again in the future. Many thanks!”

Rhett Daily

“I purchased a completely overhauled vintage valve Binson Echorec 2 T7E modified with varispeed, wet-only output, and a new paint job from Soundgas in early 2018. Tony and his team did an amazing job during every step of the purchase”

Matt Morton

"When you are spending big money of vintage gear it's nice to have the confidence of impeccable service, sales and support... some of the best in the industry! Impeccable people, incredible equipment… my poor poor fiancé"

James DLR - Sofa Sound/Metalheadz

Purchased a Juno-60 and it works beautifully. Having gotten one teched before, I knew it was worth paying a premium to get it future proofed and Soundgas does just that. Shipped professionally from the UK to USA. Appreciate their expertise and professional demeanor!

Eric Cullen

As good as it gets. Tony, Dec and team have been incredible, prompt communication, great advice and outstanding service. It really felt like my Polysix came from a loving home.

Ben Parm

“The perfect place to hear, learn about and then buy your most wanted piece of vintage music gear! I've not only managed to buy a rare piece of equipment I really wanted, but I have the guarantee it's been serviced, and I got it from people who are clearly passionate and knowledgeable about what they do, as well as super friendly and responsive by email. Thoroughly recommended!”

Colleen / Cécile Schott

I have been buying vintage stuff for a long time from resellers/stores/techs. I've never been so surprised and pleased after opening! Just received a Roland RE-201 and VX55 mixer, they look and sound amazing! Thanks to Tony/Declan for the service and the Soundgas team will be back!

Dong Yun Seok

"Just received my Roland RS 505 Paraphonic! Thanks so much - arrived very promptly, well packaged, in great condition and sounds amazing! Best seller."

Koko Hiras

"Soundgas provided the absolutely top service in terms of item quality as well as service and communication. Shipping was fast, packing was top notch. These people deserve the best reputation they already have. Many many thanks, guys."
