Walrus Audio Polychrome Analog Flanger
The Polychrome is a true bypass, analog Flanger pulling in familiar layout controls from the Julia and Lillian. Dial in a wealth of colorful flange with the D-F-V (Dry, Flange, Vibrato) blend knob and the shape and voice switches. The Shape Switch lets you select from sine, triangle, or random LFO wave to modulate the delay line. The Voice Switch lets you select between two voices for the flanging effect. In the down position, the flanger is more traditional and full frequency. In the up position, you get a more complex and notched flange effect with less low end.
Like the other members of the Walrus Audio modulation family, the Polychrome has a blend knob. The D-F-V (Dry, Flange, Vibrato) knob lets you blend the dry and delayed signal from full dry at minimum (no effect), to traditional flange at noon to full pitch vibrato at maximum. Don’t sleep on the vibrato sounds in the Polychrome. Set the D-F-V knob to maximum, feedback to a minimum, and the voice switch up for some unique pitch vibrato. Top-mounted input, output, and power jacks as well as soft switch relay bypassing make the Polychrome fit well on your board and ensure smooth operation for years to come.
From Subtle Movement To Dramatic Flare
Like the Iguana that’s malleable to its environment, the Polychrome can blend into its surroundings for harmonious balance with subtle movement and texture or stand out with bold and vibrant confidence. For those that favor the dramatic, using the Voice Switch in the up position will give players a more complex, notched flange effect with less low end. Add in random LFO from the Shape Switch for new and unexpected sounds.
Not Just a Flanger
The D-F-V (Dry, Flange, Vibrato) knob lets you blend the dry and delayed signal from full dry at minimum (no effect), to traditional flange at noon to full pitch vibrato at maximum.
The expected sine and triangle shapes are all here, but flip the Shape Toggle down for a randomly generated LFO for exciting and new ways to modulate your signal.
Traditional, full frequency flange can be found in the down position. With the switch up, experiment with a more complex and notched flange with less low end.
A wealth of flange and pitch vibrato sounds in an easy to navigate layout. Sculpt your own sounds with three different shapes, two voicing styles and blend with the D-F-V knob.
