Paradox Effects Reveals the Futura Multiparametric Envelope Chorus

An analog BBD chorus embedded with an envelope follower.

Tijuana, B.C., México (February 27, 2019) -- Paradox is ready to reveal its newest sonic weapon to the pedal universe, an analog BBD chorus embedded with an envelope follower. It’s a specialized engine that behaves in a multiparametric fashion to your instrument’s touch. Futura was crafted for the unorthodox, the visionary.

An ancient self-conscious device that makes you drift into a deep sea of your wildest tone dreams, shimmering classic chorus, nauseous vibrato bar bendings, slimy warbles or synthy pulses resembling the scratching of a vinyl.

How do we achieve this?

A highly responsive engine, turns your signal’s envelope into a double phase voltage control, allowing you to manipulate depth, rate and both simultaneously.

The Futura highlights include:

  • BBD Chorus and full analog signal path.
  • In house built optocoupler.
  • Intelligent switching for envelope activation (latching or momentary).
  • Envelope swell direction for rate and depth via toggle switches.
  • Blend control 100% dry to 100% wet.
  • Level control to guarantee apparent gain balance.

Handmade by non-replicant individuals in the border town of Tijuana. Futura pre-orders start February 2019, with a street price of $219.99, available at selected dealers.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
