Fairfield Circuitry Shallow Water K-Field Modulator: Dive into Unique Soundscapes

Poolside conversations while staring at your own reflection. The depths of which shall never be known, at least not for another couple thousand years. So it goes.

Before the reflection, is the experience. Before phenomena, or even noumena, is that which is undefinable. That which has never been heard, that which will never be heard again, and that which has always been heard but never listened to.

K-Field Modulation for Unique Effects

K-field (Simulation mathematics) is an undefined, two-dimensional, non-linear field where past and future forces interact at irregular intervals. Shallow Water generates this k-field by randomly modulating a short time delay to create unexpected shifts in pitch. The result is a non-cyclical vibrato/chorus/flanger-type effect that favors old tape flavors, offering a sound that is both nostalgic and novel.

Analog Sound and Intuitive Controls

The Shallow Water K-Field Modulator is designed to give you the lush, organic sounds of analog modulation with simple and intuitive controls. This pedal excels in creating unique and unpredictable modulation effects that add depth and character to your sound, whether you're aiming for subtle tape warble or more extreme pitch shifts.
