Alright Devices - Chronoblob


Fantastic digital delay module which combines all the fancy features you want to find in delays: In the first instance it offers clock synchronisation with an integrated clock divider, then voltage control, an analog feedback loop with send and return sockets, a freeze function, a resample mode and almost three seconds of delay time.
Instead of the recently popular PT2399 IC a neat microprocessor with 48kHz and 16 Bit is used, which is also a reason the sound character differs. And the sound is really fine and clean! :)



The two controls to the left have an impact on the delay time: the upper one directly sets the delay time while the bottom one is an attenuator for the Time CV.
The delay time can also be synchronized to a clock as long as a cable is inserted to the Sync socket. In this case the delay time potentiometer selects between the divisors or multiplicators 1, 2, 3, 4 and.
The left switch changes the delay time range: 5ms - 500ms or 50ms - 2.73s

The HOLD function freezes the delay buffer - the signal will be held and looped. This function is activated with the HOLD button or a voltage above 1.2V

The mode switch to the rigth determines how the module will react when changing the delay time. In upper setting it is in resampling mode and the pitch changes like with a BBD or a tape echo. In the bottom setting it smoothly blends between the delay taps for smoother and quicker changes - this works great when modulating the delay time or when synchronising the delay.

The feedback goes up to +2.6 dB and can be set with the top right control as well as via a control voltage. The feedback loop can be broken by using the send and return sockets for inserting effects into the feedback loop, e.g. a low pass filter for dampening the echoes. Or you might try to make two Chronoblob modules interact by cross-patching their feedbacks.
