Designed with a dBucket algorithm and a high-performance DSP, the Ola recreates the warm, sonic complexities of classic analogue chorus and vibratos. Offering three modulation types and three dynamic modes to choose from, the effects pedal features a range of adjustable parameters, with a global tone control for boosting or cutting the treble frequency of the wet signal. Also featuring high quality analogue front end and output sections, with a stereo input and output for delivering industry standard effects – your creativity will be truly boundless when using this pedal.
The Ola feature three high quality modulations to choose from, allowing you to select and single delay line chorus, a three-phase multi delay-line chorus and a vintage vibrato circuit. The single chorus featured is a traditional effect, using a logarithmic LFO to create deep chorus’ that can go from lush and vast to more muted and subtle by dialling in the speed and depth controls. The multi-chorus features three individual dBucket delay sections per channel, creating a studio quality chorus that can handle a high wet mix without sounding overly warped. The Vibrato effect uses a sinusoidal type LFO and a single dBucket delay-line per channel to capture the original, classic vibrato stomp pedals.
Along with the different modulations, this pedal features two modes to further enhance the effects, whilst the normal mode allows the pedal to produce a clean effect – when switched into the envelope mode, the pedal's reacts to the way you play, producing effects that are shaped by your sound. When chorus is selected, the wet signal diminishes the harder you play, and comes back at lower intensity levels.
When the Ramp mode is selected, all the modulations are the same, allowing you to adjust the speed of the ramps via the ramp/env control. Turn the knob clockwise to increase the speed of the ramp, and hold down the bypass footswitch to rein in the effect.
