Dyno My Roto
When you want tri-chorus in a pedal Lire plus
Finally you can get those 80’s vintage rack chorus sounds that define killer chorus sounds. This was not an easy development. The Dyno My Roto is a tough and difficult thing to accomplish in such a small package and we couldn’t leave good enough alone. We added a Flanger and a Leslie Cabinet simulator.
The magic to the chorus sound in the Dyno My Roto is the three LFOs that give you lush modulations that truly sing out like a chorus of guitars. Most chorus pedals, in fact nearly all, are simply two voice, one straight and one modulated. This offers twice the amount of joy by modulating another voice. That significantly reducing the ability to just hear one voice being affected and smears a couple voices in an effect that is truly enjoyable to listen to.
We came up with a new Rotary Cabinet package that give you a Proximity Control. The Proximity Control controls how far away you are from the spinning speaker cabinet. This adds a depth and distance to the cabinet and is a touch like a reverb control. It gives you that spatial expanse that can give you presence or depth in the chorus-like rotations. Lastly, while we were spinning things, we crafted a RotoFlange sound that has a simple negative feedback control. Easy to use and gets you the most classic flanger sounds possible.
So whether you are going for a Alex Lifeson of Rush tone, a Andy Summers of the Police tone, or an SRV Crossfire rotary tone, we have you covered in one box with the Dyno My Roto.
Delay Time – This Time control roughly sets the length between your repeats between 40ms and 600ms. This range is well suited for classic, vintage delay sounds that are great for slap-back or medium length delay times.
Regen – This control sets the number of repeats. You can set this for a single slap back echo or turn it up for a runaway, self-oscillating or self-regenerating echoes. (Now go back and twist the Time control for some crazy sounds!)
Delay Level – The Level control is your mix, how loud you want to hear the echoes.
WOW AND FLUTTER CONTROLS
Depth – Turn this control to achieve deeper and deeper chorusing and pitch shifting on your echoes. As you raise the control the Depth and Rate LED will start to glow giving you a visual indication as to the amount of modulation you are applying to the repeats.
Rate – This is your Flutter control. It’s another way to control how poorly your tape echo is performing! Not that any tape deck was every in this bad of condition, but it sure sounds good to have a little pitch modulation on your echo! Using these controls gives you a nice way to create unique and very musical delays.
Whether you’re into Rockabilly slap-back echoes, experimental sounds, or just want a great classic rock sounding echo, the Magnetic Echo will sound great in your rig.
Keeley Electronics started to develop and produce this delay way back in 2005. But as things happened, we worked on other projects, always keeping an eye on the growing delay and echo market. We sure you will be very happy with the tone of this echo/delay/modulation effect.
It’s pretty clear from this unbiased shoot-out that the Magnetic Echo wins. The delays sound more like the original and not as filtered and cut off. The modulation is more sophisticated. Price point is the same !
