Death By Audio Speed Tripper: A psychedelic delay to blow your mind
Death By Audio’s new Speed Tripper combines an optical phaser with 30ms to 1100ms of delay. Perfect for all your psychedelic trippy delay needs! Limited to a run of 666 units, this is the the second pedal produced in collaboration with LEVITATION. Expect some wildness.
Death By Audio Speed Tripper
With a name that suggests a long weekend with the late Lemmy Kilmister, the new Death by Audio Speed Tripper visually sets you up for what is about to occur when you hit the footswitch. Combining an optical phaser with a delay offering between 30ms to 1100ms of delay time, there’s a lot of fun to be had here. Expect a little madness along the way.
The controls are clearly named with Delay Time, Feedback, Tripper Speed and Intensity knobs that you can tweak to hit your peak. There’s an added bonus, too. Longer delays will degrade the quality of the repeats, so layering could be a lot of fun with this pedal.
Interactive Joy Ride
This circuit design gives you a Feedback control from the delay output back to its input, made more interactive and useful with the Intensity control. It dials in the amount of delay being sent through the optical phase network, so there is a lot going on here. Add in a little LFO with the Tripper Speed dial and off you go into insanity. An internal Blend control and allows you to set the volume of the delayed signal relative to your clean signal. Nice.
Overall, this box sounds like a lot of fun. It’s a shame, somehow, that this effect is a limited run of only 666 units worldwide. I would suggest that you check out the demo videos below to get a feel for what this pedal is capable of. It’s pretty mental (in a good way).
RRP – USD 269 with a limited run of 666 pedals worldwide
