The circuit allows for optical reverb tremolo, modulation, and shimmer.
Latvia (January 15, 2020) -- The Light Pedal is the world’s first analog Optical Spring Reverb system that uses infra-red optical sensors to harvest the full timbral and harmonic range of a spring reverb tank. The Light Pedal uses extremely sensitive optical pairs, placed at specific regions of the spring to detect very nuanced movements on the spring’s surface, as soundwaves travel through it. This method opens up a much wider range of frequencies, harmonics, overtones and textures that are otherwise lost in the mechanical reverberation process. Using optical sensors also opens doors to some new effects types, such as Optical Reverb Tremolo, Optical Reverb Modulation and Optical Harmonic Shimmer. The result is a wide variety of reverb sounds ranging from classic to experimental to pure magic.
