Ahead of Winter NAMM 2019, Athens-based boutique company Dreadbox has revealed a teaser video and select details about the soon-to-be-released Hypnosis effects processor. What is clear, though, is that the Dreadbox Hypnosis offers three independent, time-based effects, and a fantastic '80s-inspired design!

The Hypnosis features a combination of digital and analog effects. Three independent effects sections are included for chorus-flanger, delay, and spring reverb. These effect selections promise to take users straight back to the '80s with their retro sounds, complementing the design of the front panel perfectly.

'80s-Inspired Effects

On top of the Dreadbox, a clear window reveals an internal 3-spring reverb tank; used to generate a classic reverb with a "unique pitch modulation circuit". This analog design offers authentic vintage sounds and the potential to get creative with ambient knocks and bangs.

Elsewhere, the stereo analog Bucket Bridgade Chorus-Flanger features 3 LFO waves for a wide range of control, while the stereo digital Delay features 3 delay types, as well as a Freeze function for even more expressive potential.

Multiple Performance Capabilities

The Hypnosis features memory for up to 49 presets, while the variable input and output gain controls allow the conversion from MIC to Eurorack levels. A full complement of top-mounted controls promises an intuitive and hands-on workflow, making the Hypnosis ideal for generating new sounds and ideas on-the-fly.

The desktop chassis and retro-chic design makes the Hypnosis the ideal complement to your studio setup. When you've crafted your key sounds, simply store your favourite presets and recall them instantly into any project.
