Welcome the Old Blood Noise Endeavors BL-52 Phase Repeater, a pedal that blurs the boundaries between phaser, delay, and reverb to create a unique auditory experience. This pedal is a marvel in sound manipulation, playing with the very essence of time and frequency to produce an array of tones that are both unexpected and enthralling.
At the heart of the BL-52 lies its ability to artfully manipulate all-pass filters for a wide range of sonic textures. This innovative approach allows the pedal to pass all frequencies, but at varied times, creating effects that range from the swirly motion of a phaser to the expansive ambiance of a reverb, depending on the memory allocated for the process. This intricate dance with the fourth dimension of time results in a sound that is continuously evolving and mesmerizing.
The control setup of the BL-52 is straightforward yet powerful. The Clock slider is pivotal, adjusting the sample rate which affects signal fidelity, the timing of phase repetition, and the speed of the LFO that diffuses these repetitions. This control dramatically shapes the character of the sound, from rapid-fire repetitions at higher rates to elongated, spaced-out echoes as it slows down.
The Mix knob allows blending between the dry and wet signal, providing complete control over the intensity of the effect. Feedback adjustment is crucial in extending the trails of the effect, creating a more pronounced and sustained phase-repeat experience.
The BL-52's unique sound signature is further complemented by its Feedback control. This knob allows the user to dial in the amount of output fed back into the input, enriching the trails at various clock settings. It’s worth noting that even at lower feedback settings, the nature of the phase repeater can give an impression of feedback, especially at slower clock speeds.
Not content with just sounding good, the enclosure is enrobed in a visually striking design by Brandy M. Patterson. The BL-52 is a gateway to exploring sonic realms that lie between the familiar territories of phasers, delays, and reverbs.
