Description

Strymon’s Volante delivers the full gamut of analog-style echoes — magnetic drum echo, tape echo, and reel-to-reel studio echo. It’s also a stereo multi-head delay with an onboard looper and independent vintage spring reverb. You can really dial in the vintage vibe with this pedal, from the natural saturation and soft clipping of overdriven magnetic media to mechanics, wear, head spacing, machine speed, and more. Enjoy complete control of every parameter via MIDI. Store up to 300 presets. Take command via expression pedal — Volante is primed for maximum emotional expression. Beyond that, instrument/line-level capabilities make it equally at home on your pedalboard or in the studio. Volante includes tap tempo, 24-bit/96kHz sound quality, and selectable true bypass/analog buffered bypass switching. Volante is a multi-head delay machine with 4 playback heads and a single record head. The delay time is determined by a combination of two factors: the distance between the record and playback heads, and the speed of the media. The distance is determined by the TIME knob. The SPEED switch selects the speed of the media. Delay Time Components The playback buttons are used to select which of the heads will be heard with each pass of the recording media. Each of the heads have their own tap division relative to the quarter note delay time of With SPACING set to golden or silver, the heads provide dense, non-overlapping delay repeats that are not tied to a specific tap division except for head 4 which is a quarter note repeat. The feedback buttons select which of the corresponding heads will feed back into the record head. The TIME knob is used to set the delay time with head 4 as the quarter note head. The delay time range is dependent on the SPEED switch setting. The REPEATS knob controls the feedback level of the delay repeats for the playback heads that have their corresponding feedback engaged. The SPACING knob adjusts the distance between the playback heads. Turning the knob morphs the heads in between the marked settings.

March 2019 New Gear Thread

. Strymon Volante just arrived: It's interesting that Strymon have choosen the same colour for the Volante as the Binson Echorec. Let's see if the drum echo option(s) can get near the Echorec. Time for some testing with a Model D reissue.

Looking to purchase FX pedal(s) for ambient set up. Would appreciate any suggestions

Thanks for this, Zero. Had never heard of the Expressive E Touche until now. It looks pretty interesting. Are you able to use it to control different ranges of multiple vst parameters on separate plug ins simultaneously? If so, that opens up a world of possibilities! Do you notice any latency using vst fx with your...
