pigtronix constellator

Affordable modulated analog delay in miniature.

An excellent sounding and affordable passport to the universe of modulated analog delay that also respects tradition.

Micro size is a blessing and, for some, perhaps a small curse.


Pigtronix Constellator


Despite the spacey name, the Constellator isn't the most out-of-this-world contraption made by Pigtronix. For that prize, I would submit the Mothership 2 Analog Synthesizer, which is raving madness in a box. Madness is relative though, and the Constellator is possessed with a more warm-hearted insanity. And while this analog delay does playfully cross the line into modulation in two ways, it has more of a star- (or maybe shoe-) gazing vibe that's warm and old-school in tone, but looks beyond the orbit of conventional delay.
