If you think you have Flangers all figured out and placed neatly in your little square genre-defined box, then get ready to have your world turned upside down by the Solid Gold FX OBLIVION QUAD FLANGER.
An otherworldly vast sonic sea awaits you with this device, as every turn of a knob and flick of a switch unlocks mind-melting tones. From epically lush modulated movements to intense regenerating alien airwaves, lo-fi bit-crushed textural landscapes and much more, Oblivion is not here to capture a snapshot of the past, it’s here to open portals to the future!
With the OBLIVION, you have the traditional Speed, Range and Regen controls, but where this pedal really shines is in the three distinct Flange modes available.
We start with a classic Flanger and throw in Thru-Zero capabilities to pull you in and out of space. To push things a little bit further, we then came up with the Bi-Flange mode - offsetting a pair of modulating delay lines for even more sweeping movement.
That sounded great, so we said “Let's do it! Carpe diem! You only live once… how about four delay lines?”. BOOM! The quad-flange mode adds those four (yes four!) independent delay lines for massive swooshing tsunamis of ominous textures.
To make things even more interesting, each of these three Flangers have their respective Degrade modes, introducing a lo-fi element unique to this pedal that grants you access to eyebrow raising textures, reminiscent of ring mods or robotic overtones.
Even more control
Once all of that was accomplished we set out to cram in tons of flexibility for even more fine tuning. A Blend control helps to adjust your wet and dry mix for light and polite Chorus sounds or for a full-on swirling whirlpool of Flange. Expression and CV capabilities, with internal Dip Switches, add even more variation and control. Not to mention the multi-function foot switch capabilities for Tap Tempo, Speed Ramping and LFO Braking.
With top-mounted jacks and soft touch, relay True Bypass switching, this pedal truly has it all. So, what are you waiting for? Jump on into the sea of the OBLIVION, where growing layers of waves filled with the push and pull of the tide are waiting to wash over you.
