From Pigtronix:

Pigtronix Echolution 2 is a
user-friendly and fully programmable stereo modulation delay that supports 60
user-editable presets that can be recalled instantly. Under the hood of this
elegant user interface lurks a vast array of additional modes and features with
which to craft an unlimited number of sonic textures. Unlike other delay
pedals, every algorithm in the Echolution 2 can be run simultaneously, in any
combination. A free PC/MAC application for the Echolution 2 enables real time
editing and access to all of the advanced sound design functions as well as
online sharing of presets via USB.


Analog i/o

Echolution 2 features stereo inputs and outputs, sporting an
all analog dry signal path along with extensive analog tone shaping and
filtering before and after the 24-bit, variable-clock digital delay line.
Rather than try to model the sound of analog delays in DSP, the Echolution 2
uses real analog filters and non-linear saturation stages to achieve its
signature sound with a smaller footprint, higher fidelity and far greater
functionality than its predecessors.

Delay Line

Available delay time goes from 10ms up to 12 seconds
instantly settable via knob, tap tempo or MIDI. Changing the delay time
manually results in the smooth pitch change of an analog tape unit, with a
unique twist that allows octave up and down jumping. The delay line can also be
turned off, to allow for the advanced modulation, pitch shifting and filter
capabilities to be used as stand-alone effects.

Multi-Taps

The
multi-tap capabilities of the Echolution 2 allow for the use of one or two
discreet delays which can be assigned to musical subdivisions of the master
delay time. Multi-tap selections include 1, 3/4, 2/3, 1/2, and PHI (the golden
ratio). One or any combination of two taps can be selected, allowing for
instant access to all of the most crucial musical echo patterns as well as a
wide range of unconventional polyrhythms.

LFO Modulation

The modulation section of the Echolution 2 features sample
rate modulation where both the read and write heads of the delay line are
affected by one of four different LFO waveforms (Sine, Square, Saw or Random).
Each of these LFO waveforms can also be quantized with a STEP mode and will run
freely or sync to either tap tempo or MIDI with variable sync ratios from 1:8
to 8:1.

Filters

The
Echolution 2 sports four all new filter modes (Low Pass, Tape, Comb and Sweep).
Each of the first three modes can be combined with the SWEEP filter which is
modulated by the LFO as described above. Any of these filter settings can then
be run through a unique Pigtronix BIT CRUSHER destruction filter within the
delay line as well.

Expression / Envelope

Every
knob on the Echolution 2 can be mapped to the expression pedal. Using the
included software, multiple functions can be mapped to expression with
adjustable range for each parameter. Additionally, an envelope follower within
the pedal can also be mapped to any parameter, with user definable sensitivity
and release time for each function.

The Kitchen Sink

Advanced features such as Reverse, Ducking, Trails, Listen
and Ping Pong modes are augmented by a unique Halo Shimmer function, which
causes the echoes to rise in octaves on each repeat. The externally triggered
Freeze function allows you to loop the content of the delay line and an all new
footswitch activated Jump function sends your echoes cascading up in octaves
when desired. The TRS remote switch accessory pedal for the Echolution 2
provides Jump and Freeze functions as well as instant access to four favorite
presets in each bank.

Presets

Echolution
2 supports up to 60 custom presets contained in 6 banks of 10, all of which can
be edited in real time via the front panel and saved to the machine. Hands free
Preset selection is accomplished by holding down the onboard TAP switch, using
an external remote footswitch or via MIDI preset change command. The included
PC/MAC application allows even deeper real time editing as well as the ability
to import artist presets and share your own custom presets online.

MIDI

MIDI IN
provides instant preset change, Tap Tempo and LFO synchronization with an
external source as well as remote control over every function of the Echolution
2. MIDI OUT allows for tap tempo control over the Pigtronix Infinity Looper and
other MIDI capable devices. The USB port on the Echolution 2 provides
connectivity to MAC or PC computers, allowing you to run the free Echolution 2
application for preset management and real-time tweaking of advanced parameters.
