The Binary Star is our unique celestial time modulator.
Immensely versatile, the Binary Star provides access to a vast range of analog-flavored sounds, from straightforward delays (slapback to long repeats) and modulation effects such as chorus and vibrato to insane pitch-shifted repeats and ultra-fast pitch-shifted vibrato repeats.
The Binary Star can be used in mono or stereo mode, where the stereo mode splits the wet and dry signals into two outputs which can be run into separate amplifiers.
Featuring 5 dials, two toggle switches and one foot switch, the Binary Star allows you to dial a near infinite number of sounds from it’s multidimensional heart.
Universe : This controls the delay time. Unlike standard delay times the universe control increases delay time as the control is turned clockwise, but begins to reduce delay time in the last stages of it’s sweep. Like the classic analogue delays of old, as you increase the delay time you will hear background artefacts in the sound. You’re pushing the engine. But it’s ok. The Binary Star’s warp drive can take it. No need for alarm.
Replicate: Used to determine the number of repeats in longer delay settings or the resonance, in shorted delay settings.
Mix: Allows you to choose any blend of Dry, Wet and Dry and 100% Wet.
Velocity: Determines the rate of the modulation
Depth: determines the depth of the modulation. Set this fully counter clockwise to turn the modulation function off. This control works interactively with the Universe dial. In longer delay settings, increasing the Depth control will reduce the overall delay setting.
Left Hand Toggle: Set this switch to the right to increase overall delay time, to the left to reduce.
Right Hand Toggle: Set this switch to determine the flavour of the wet signal – to the left for a warmer sound, to the left for a brighter sound.
Foot Switch: True Bypass – Engage to bring the Binary Star into your signal path
LED Left Hand: Indicates that the unit is engaged or not
LED Right Hand: Pulses in time with the modulation rate.
Right Hand Jack Socket: Input
Far Left Jack Socket: Mono Output (use this when only using one amplifier)
Middle Jack Socket: Stereo Output. Attaching a second amplifier to this socket automatically engages stereo mode.
2.1mm Socket: DC input. 9 volts, Regulated DC. Centre pin Negative, sleeve Positive. Current draw 60ma.
