The new Mythos Pedals Oracle Analog Echo is based on ’80s Japanese-style analog delay effects. It employs a classic BBD chipset to recreate those warm analogue repeats us guitarists love. But with a few modern enhancements.
Mythos Pedals Oracle Analog Echo
Designed by John Snyder of Electronic Audio Experiments, the new Mythos Pedals Oracle Analog Echo uses a pair of reissue MN3205 BBD chips to recreate the tones we associate with early ’80s Japanese delay pedals. The pedal will give you up to 600 ms of warm analogue delay time, which should be more than enough for most guitarists.
The Oracle has a super simple layout which I really like. You get controls for Time, Feedback and Mix, along with two footswitches labelled On and Tap, all of which are fairly self-explanatory. It’s perfect for players like me, who appreciate easy-to-use effects pedals.
But there’s more. Mythos has added some modern enhancements to this circuit design, such as the true-bypass switching and Tap Tempo, which includes an Ext. Tap Jack socket on the side of the pedal. With the Tap Tempo circuit you can actually push the amount of delay-time past the 600ms mark for degraded broken repeats. So it has a few tricks up its sleeve. All the input/output jacks are situated on the top of the enclosure, allowing the pedal to sit neatly on your pedalboard.
Overall, I find this pedal to have some great specs. If you love analogue delay pedals, and want those vintage tones but without the vintage hassles, then the Mythos Oracle Analog Echo should be on your radar.
