Analogue delay pedals are all the rage in these retro-worshipping times, but wouldn’t it be great to have a pedal that offered you all the sonic brilliance of an analogue pedal with the control and functionality of a modern digital device?
If that sounds like just the ticket for you, Chase Bliss Audio’s Tonal Recall pedal is the answer – and one lucky Guitar Magazine reader can win one in this month’s fantastic competition!
The core of the Tonal Recall is built around a pair of reissued versions of the legendary MN3005 bucket-brigade delay chip, which give the pedal its unmistakable analogue character, as well as its velvety tape-like modulation. But the digital side of the Tonal Recall really sets it apart – while the guitar signal remains 100 per cent analogue, every knob and switch on the pedal is connected to a digital brain controlling what they do.
This means that you get modern amenities such as tap tempo, optional bypass with trails, expression control over any parameter, and the ability to save presets, all while retaining the fidelity of the pedal’s classic analogue tones.
In addition, this level of digital control over the analogue sound offers up truly impressive and unique new effects and features that you’d never dream of hearing from a traditional analogue stompbox.
Lanterns On The Lake guitarist and producer Paul Gregory took an in-depth look at the Tonal Recall in our regular Joy Of FX magazine, and having used it for several months, he was blown away by the pedal. “It’s truly incredible – as analogue delay pedals go its a work of art,” he enthused. “The beauty of it is that if you want to use it as a simple slap echo, you can, or if you want tit to be an endless stream of sonic consciousness that cascades into a deluge of otherworldly lo-fi noise, you can. It does everything an analogue delay could possibly do.”
