Collision DevicesBlack Hole Symmetry Delay + Reverb + Fuzz Pedal (Pink)
Collision Devices Black Hole Symmetry
Though it may now be housed in a special edition pink color, Black Hole Symmetry from Collision Devices is still the same crushing combo of delay, reverb, and fuzz packed into one interstellar pedal. It features three blocks that relate to the structure of a black hole. These include: Ergosphere, the area approaching a black hole (delay); Event horizon, the edge of the black hole (reverb); and singularity, the point at the center where all mass is compressed (fuzz).
The Ergosphere delay is a modulated delay with a delay time up to 1s and characteristics reminiscent of a BBD or tape-echo delay. Modulate the delay signal with a variable rate oscillator that features a depth control to set the proportion of modulation. The modulated delay sounds a bit like a tape-echo with wow-and-flutter at high modulation settings. Feedback sets the number of repeats and runs up to self-oscillating feedback. Carefully set it on the edge of oscillation to build a wall of sound that sits between order and chaos. The Event Horizon reverb is a pitch-shifting reverb that harmonizes with the incoming signal. Set the pitch shifting up to a fifth and then set the proportion of the pitch shifter to the echo signal. The echo control or reverb decay approaches infinity at the highest settings, but never quite reaches it. The Singularity features a single control, disintegrate. This sets the volume of the fuzz circuit which adds a huge, raw fuzz that tears at the fabric of space and time.
Black Hole Symmetry packs these three effects blocks into a single package to be used independently or in conjunction with each other. The sound is huge, fitting the name well, providing a mysterious experience that seems to draw you in. You can't escape, succumb to the Black Hole Symmetry.
