Strymon Mobius - Modulation Pedal
Strymon introduces the Mobius, a versatile pedal with twelve modulation effect types in a compact package.
The modulation effect types are designed to reproduce the nuances of the most popular modulation pedals in the last five decades.
Aside from faithfully reproducing classic sounds, the Mobius pedal adds versatility to the effects, covering a wide range of sounds from classic to modern.
To achieve all this without getting too bulky, Strymon equipped the pedal with a powerful hardware processor that can handle multiple effects without sacrificing audio quality - the Sharc DSP.
Aside from the various modulation effects, it gives the Mobius the ability to handle 200 presets, full MIDI implementation and even a Pre/Post Mode option for in depth effect control.
The first effect on the rotary selector is the Chorus, which gives you five distinct modes that cover everything from subtle to '80s era detune. Next is the Flanger effect, it features six modes delivering what Strymon hails as a "historic catalog" of flange tones.
The Rotary "machine" is among its best selling point because as showcased on the video demo, it gives out an impressive swirling sound. The fourth effect on the rotary selector is the Vibe, it has improved control over waveshape symmetry, low end response and headroom. Another important modulation effect included in this pedal is the Phaser effect, which lets you dial in 2, 4 and 6 stage phasers.
Other effects include Filter, Formant, Vintage Trem, Pattern Trem, Destroyer, Quadrature and the cool Autoswell mode. Each of the modulation effects are controlled via the intuitive front panel knobs, and offer a wide variety of modes within each mode - giving the Strymon Mobius a wide range of modulation sounds.
