Tails or Full Bypass Switching
Astral Destiny can operate in two different bypass states: Tails or Full Bypass. It comes factory set in Tails Mode which allows the reverb effect to naturally decay after the effect is bypassed and is indicated by a Green Activate LED. Full Bypass will cut the reverb effect completely when the effect is bypassed and is indicated by a Red Activate LED.
Astral Destiny is buffered bypass which means that there will always be an active buffer present and it requires power to pass signal.
The Stretch footswitch doubles the length of the reverb effect while adding a temporary change in pitch.
Tap for an immediate pitch change.
Hold for a temporary pitch bending effect.
Adjusting the speed of the pitch bend
The speed of the of the pitch bending effect created by holding the Stretch footswitch can be adjusted by following these steps:
Hold down the Stretch footswitch.
Turn the Length control clockwise for a longer pitch bend or counterclockwise for a shorter pitch bend.
Release the Stretch footswitch once you have selected your desired length.
The Stretch footswitch will now operate at the selected speed every time the Astral Destiny is powered on.
This device takes a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. DO NOT RUN AT HIGHER VOLTAGES!
