Description

The Walrus Audio Bellwether is a bucket brigade delay pedal with tap tempo. Offering analog circuity and up to 1000ms of lush delays, the Bellwether ushers in a rich soundscape of long and short trails. It can achieve the warm saturated sounds found in delays like the Maxon AD999 and the coveted Boss DM-2. Inversely, the repeats can also be brightened up with the tone control for more pronounced rhythmic delays. The Analog Chorus Engine allows you to manipulate the depth and rate of the chorus effect applied to your trails; creating a deep soundscape of ambient modulation. Set the time and repeat controls low to get that classic western slap back sound or drag them out to achieve shoegaze perfection. Take it all the way to 10 to achieve a self-oscillating delay. Four tap division options are offered to control the rhythm of your repeats: quarter notes, eighth notes, dotted eighth notes, and triplets. Expression control options are offered to swing either the time or repeat controls back-and-forth. Manipulate the time control to get that Johnny Greenwood oscillation or use it on the fly to manipulate the repeat control; adding long tails to your diamonds. There are seven rotary controls with black aluminum control knobs: Tap Division, Time, Repeats, Tone (high-cut), and Level (of repeats). The bottom two rotary controls regulate the Analog Chorus Engine’s Rate and Depth. This section is employable with an on/off toggle. The Bellwether has five 1/4” inch input jacks on the top side of the enclosure: input, two outputs, an effects loop, and expression control. The expression jack receives a TRS input to manipulate time or repeats; selectable by a toggle on the front of the pedal. There are two heavy duty foot-switches: one for effect on/off and the other controlling the tap tempo controls by moving your foot up or down on the expression pedal. Note: The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals. Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended. Power requirements are 9VDC (100mA minimum)

Will people still listen to Jamiroquai in the year 3000?

...listen to the top of the pops or to the supposedly trendy westside LA college station that's supposedly a commercial bellwether (and was, indeed, once pretty influential), I mostly hear the same sounds, approaches and techniques that, frankly weren't even that novel in the late 90s and around the turn of the century when...

...out of my DAW without touching anything with editors. So I have a SubPhatty and Minitaur, and just purchased a Bellwether from Walrus Audio to be dedicated to my SubPhatty so I want to add much beef to my SubPhatty as possible sonically, by having a second output that goes into my SP ext...

...between Roland and Behringer, and therefore it seems like watching the reaction Sweetwater has (or doesn't have) is a good bellwether for the situation (or lack of situation). In other words, I will believe something has changed when a major retailer like Sweetwater pulls the MS-101-RD version.
