CHRONOS Delay w/Tap-tempo & Modulation (Χρόνος)

dpFX CHRONOS Delay w/ Tap tempo & modulation
A/D hybrid delay (tape delay simulation) 600msec w/ tap-tempo, analog modulation and self oscillation capability.
CHRONOS ('ΧΡόΝοΣ') has a very natural and clean sound with feedback that simulates tape delay units where the repeats decay in a very natural way. Your dry signal goes through the pedal in a totally analog way, remaining intact. The modulation effect is switched ON/OFF through a toggle switch and it is applied on the delay-time creating a ripple-effect. The modulation frequency is controlled through the "Hz" knob and a LED flashes in that frequency. A soft-touch foot-switch allows you to control the delay-time through tapping. Suitable both for clean & distorted signals.

  • TIME: adjust time delay up to 600msec
  • FDBK: feedback, adjusts the number of repeats. If set after the 3/4 position the circuit self-oscillates producing endless loops.
  • MIX: adjusts the level of delayed signal that is mixed in analog way with your dry signal.
  • MASTER: adjusts the master volume of the output. It also works as a slight boost.
  • MOD. switch: toggle on/off the analog modulation. The modulation is applied on the delay-time, creating a ripple-effect.
  • Hz: selects the modulation frequency (the LED flashes on the selected frequency)
  • TAP foot-switch: tap in the tempo of your choice to automatically adjust the delay-time to match exactly that tempo. (4taps for old models, 2taps for newest models).

Nomenclature:
- CHRONOS (Greek: Χρόνος) is the Greek word for TIME.
- CHRONOS is also the personification of time in ancient Greek mythology (not to be confused with the Titan Cronus). He was considered to have the shape of a three-headed serpent. The heads were those of a man, a bull and a lion. Along with his daughter Ananke (Ἀνάγκη), the goddess of inevitability who was also in the form of a snake, he revolved around the primordial world egg, until they split it apart to form the earth, the sea and the sky.
