Based in Indonesia, GFI System manufactures some rather impressive pedals, and has built a solid reputation for its time-based effects.
After taking a look at V3 of their Specular Reverb, Mike Hermans just published this video of the Clockwork Delay V3, which improves the previous versionwith a simplified preset system, also adding an Expression/Tap Tempo input and a a simple unobtrusive button gives quick access to the seven delay algorithms (Digital, Analog, Dual, Diffuse, Ambiental, Multi-Tap3, and Multi-Tap-4).
Here’s the video demo::
Clockwork Delay V3 offers 7 distinct stereo delay algorithms that can be saved into any one of the 8 presets locations.
Despite the plethora of features and functionalities packed into the pedal we have designed the interface in such a way that enables fast and easy operation. A dedicated tap-tempo switch allows instant tempo adjustment and a simple unobtrusive button gives quick access to the seven delay algorithms.
Algorithms : Digital, Analog, Dual, Diffuse, Ambiental, Multi-Tap3, and Multi-Tap-4.
Presets : 8 presets, organized in two banks.
Stereo I/O : 2 inputs – 2 outputs.
Tap-Tempo : with 4 subdivisions.
(NEW) Expression / Tap-tempo input : accepts a standard expression or Tap-Tempo pedal.
(NEW) Kill-dry : achieve 100% wet signal.
Spillover : as the pedal is bypassed, the delay tail is not abruptly cut off, instead it decays out naturally. The same is true when changing presets (as long as you stay in the same delay mode).
Auto Regen Swell : when you engage this feature, the parameter controlled by the Repeats knob is slowly swept to the maximum value, hold it there, and then swept back to the original setting. Used judiciously, this feature can introduce dynamic elements to the soundscape – watch the demo videos to see it in action.
Analog Dry-thru : dry signal is routed through a pure analog path.
Small form-factor : the pedal measures 12 x 6.5 (cm) or 4.7 x 2.5 (inch)
