Catalinbread Debuts the Many Worlds Phaser Leave a comment

Catalinbread has lifted the veil on its latest masterpiece—the Many Worlds phaser pedal.

At its core, Catalinbread describes the Many Worlds as “an eight-stage phaser with eight selectable phase control parameters, six LFOs and two envelope-dependent phase shift modes,” reactive to your picking attack.

In keeping with its name, the Many Worlds offers a combination of classic “orange box” sounds and quantum physics-inspired off-the-beaten-track tones.

Besides its otherworldly-looking artwork, the Many Worlds phaser sports an eight-position knob for changing between half-dozen LFO waveforms and the envelope up and down modes. Other handy controls include Freq/Attack, Depth/Freq2/Sens, Feedback, and Mix.

“The idea for Many Worlds began when we were experimenting with different LFO shapes for a phaser project,” Catalinbread wrote, adding:

“This LFO framework eventually led to experiments involving the modulation of one LFO by another. This is where the name Many Worlds comes from—the ‘Many Worlds’ interpretation of quantum mechanics is a theory by Hugh Everette which states that quantum wave function collapse is actually the superposition of quantum states built by the decoherence of independent wave functions. This leads to the theory of parallel universes where quantum measurements have opposite results.”

You can now purchase the Catalinbread Many Worlds phaser for $199.
