The pedal features two simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines, series and parallel control for the dual reverbs, 24 presets, and advanced I/O.

New York, New York (February 27, 2020) -- Electro-Harmonix introduces the Oceans 12 featuring two simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines, series and parallel control for the dual reverbs, 24 presets and advanced I/O allowing for stereo in/out, splitting reverbs to left and right channels, or mono send/return with pre and post reverb options. The pedal also includes a new Tide Control for stereo image alteration, a Lo-fi Control, an infinite attenuation control and an input jack for external expression and footswitch control.

Features:

  • ROOM – two modes: reverb algorithms modeled after a lively room and a spacious performance hall
  • SPRING – two modes: vintage 1962 Fender 6G15 tube reverb emulation and the spring algorithm from the EHX Holy Grail
  • PLATE – two modes: two emulations of the smooth, metal plate reverb often used in high-end recording studios during the 1960s and ‘70s
  • REVERSE – two modes: a reverse reverb effect as well as true reversed echoes
  • ECHO ¬¬– three modes: a digital delay with various echo rhythms feeding into a plate reverb
  • TREM – three modes: a classic, periodic volume envelope with various shapes applied to both the wet and dry mix of a hall reverb
  • MOD – three modes: combinations of chorus and flange reverbs that create rich reverb tails
  • DYNA – three dynamic, experimental reverb algorithms: swell, gate and duck
  • AUTO-INF – three modes: auto-infinite reverb (w/optional chorus or flange) that “listens” to your playing and crossfades to a new reverb wash upon detection of newly struck notes.
  • SHIMMER – two modes: two configurations of a rich octave-shifted reverb wash
  • POLYPHONIC – two modes: two configurable bi-directional pitch shifts that add dimensionality to the reverb tail
  • RESONANT – two modes: reverb excited by tunable resonators and configurable self-oscillating filters on the reverb tail

A Tails switch provides a choice of whether the reverb effect fades out naturally or stops immediately when the pedal is switched to bypass. In most settings the pedal is also capable of producing infinite reverb which can be played over with a different reverb effect.

The Oceans 12 comes equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply, is available now and features a U.S. List Price of $237.60

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
