Strymon Unleashes the Space-Themed NightSky Reverb Pedal Leave a comment

Strymon has unveiled the most innovative addition to its Sky roster of reverb pedals, the NightSky Time-Warped Reverberator.

Per Strymon, “NightSky evolved from a desire to push the envelope and challenge the conventions of traditional reverb while also paying homage to the experimental reverberant sounds from decades past.”

Touted by Strymon as a “reverberant synthesis workstation,” the NightSky boasts analog synth-esque talents and promotes sonic exploration. This space-themed stompbox combines a reverb core with deep pitch-shifting, filtering, modulation, as well as sequencing capabilities.

The Decay section serves up a trio of reverb textures. Diffuse mode allows for nailing slow-rising ambient swells, Sparse mode spaces out reflections to make each audibly unique, while Dense mode is akin to plate reverb.

Meanwhile, the Mod section features six waveforms for use onto three selectable targets: the pitch-shifter, the reverb core, or the filter for very synth-style sounds. There’s also the Voice and Tones sections for enhancing the reverb’s aural spectrum and shaping its low and high EQ, respectively.

Expanding on the popular shimmer function from the BlueSky and BigSky, the NightSky now enables setting shimmers to 2nd, 4th, and 5th intervals (both upwards and downwards).

The NightSky Time-Warped Reverberator is already available to pre-order at $429.
