OVERVIEW

An entire array of customizable filter, LFO and pitch shifting options.

The Echolution 2 Filter PRO is way more than a delay. This massively flexible multi-tap stereo modulation delay features an entire array of customizable filter, LFO and pitch shifting options along with expression pedal and envelope control of every knob as well as complete MIDI control of every function. 60 user definable presets provide easy access to an unprecedented variety of tap tempo dual delay, synchronized LFO modulation, pitch shifting, bit crushing and moving filter effects. A free, in-depth editor for PC and MAC allows musicians to dig even deeper to customize the behavior and sound of this one of a kind sound design machine.

Pigtronix Echolution 2 combines state-of-the-art analog <em>and</em> digital processing designed to deliver the ultimate delay pedal experience. Echolution 2 achieves the ambient richness of the finest studio delay processors by using 100% analog Class-A, discrete transistor limiters as well as non-linear tape emulator stages and filters to massage the audio coming through the delay line. Fully capable of handling instrument and line level sound sources, the Echolution 2 delivers low-noise, high-headroom delay processing with any rig. 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 delay line. Rather than try to mimic the sound of analog delays, the Echolution 2 uses real analog filters and non-linear saturation stages to achieve its signature warmth and dynamic range.

Echolution 2 uses a 24-bit, variable clock, multi-tap delay line that is coded to behave like a futuristic tape machine. Changing the delay time results in the smooth pitch bending of an analog delay system but with a Pigtronix twist that allows drastic delay time changes to create discreet musical intervals. The resulting echoes are then processed through an array of filters and special effects which can be manipulated via assignable expression pedal routing as well as envelope control for each knob.

Accessing and navigating the vast palette of sounds available within the Echolution 2 is easy. Since the pedal is completely programmable, any sound that has been designed using the Echolution 2 Filter PRO or Echolution 2 Ultro PRO pedal can be saved to the unit itself and exported for sharing with friends and other musicians. A dedicated PC/MAC application handles preset management as well as firmware upgrades and also provides Echolution 2 users with real time access to the sounds and advanced editing functionality of the Echolution 2 Ultra PRO

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.

The LFO modulation section of the Echolution 2 features true 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 Sample and Hold). Each of these LFO waveforms can also be quantized with a STEP mode and will run freely or sync to either tap tempo and MIDI with a variable speed ratio from 1:8 to 8:1.

The Echolution 2 sports four seperate filters (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. 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.

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.

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 by any desired musical interval within an a 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.

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 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.

Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

Wow. This is more than I would usually pay for a pedal, but I'm glad I did. At this price you would expect it to blow away other delay pedals. It does. My Boss is going in my drawer, for good. So many parameters, so many different sounds. Glad I got this. It's not real easy to understand, but it only takes a few turns of the knobs, a couple button pushes, and your set. Awesome product. Great little piggy.

      Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

      I picked up a Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay on a Stupid Deal of the Day (SDOTD) and couldn't be more pleased. It has more capability and filter modes than you'll probably ever need, but don't let that stop you. It's not as hard to learn to use as you might think, either. Once I started pushing buttons and turning knobs it all seemed self-explanatory. No manual required.

      The Echolution 2 doesn't suffer from a shortage of delay sounds. Everything from dotted eights to long and drawn out sequences are in there. I love to run it on standard delay with the Tape filter for decays that trail off. It makes a very convincing analog tape delay. The tap tempo function is wonderful, as well, to help dial in the correct timing. And yes, the Echolution 2 will easily self oscillate. Oh, that Halo (Shimmer) effect is worth the price of admission. All in all I'd say the Echolution 2 Filter Pro is a killer delay pedal.

        Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

        I haven't delved too deep yet, but my first impression is that this pedal holds its own against some heavy hitters like strymon, eventide, and the dd-500. The sound quality is rich. You can set whole banks up with just quality modulation effects that really perform well.

          Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

          I have only had this on my pedal board a week, but it has become my go to delay. The delays are very high quality, with no background noise. There is a number of useful delays types that can be saved for quick access and the filters and modulation expand the creative range of this pedal to cover a wide variety of musical styles and tastes. You could get lost in this pedal for days or dial in a useful delay very quickly as it is intuitive to tweak and tap tempo too. I picked this up on a Stupid Deal which made this a crazy good value.

          I don't use my DD-3 any more. Does more than I'll ever figure out. But it was easy to dial in what I like. got it on the Stupid Deal of Day, so it was a screamin' deal. I need to quit looking at the SDD.

          Delay is a big part of my sound. This pedal has it all! Dry line stays pure, many tap options, presets, modulation options. The sound had more musical complexity and depth than any other pedal I have used. In depth preset management is easy with the free sortware. On the fly minor tweaking is easy. The sound is amazing!

              Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

              Best echo pedal I've ever used. VERY natural, unprocessed sound for the more traditional effects(which is why I bought it). Very easy to just plug in and start exploring. The more traditional effects can be had, right off the bat. Of course, there's about a million other variations to be had. I'm sure you'll get out of it what you put into it. The regular type effects are so good, I would recommend this pedal, even if that was all it did. I had an EchoPlex, back in the day, and this is the first pedal to accurately recreate its effects. The presets are a great, easy way to tour this pedal. On each preset, you can adjust and explore from that setting, or even completely change it to whatever you want. Don't let the enormous amount of versatility intimidate you. You can participate as much or as little as you want, and it did not interfere with me getting straight to the simpler effects I was looking for.

                Comments about Pigtronix Echolution 2 Filter Pro Delay Guitar Pedal:

                Excellent sounding pedal, with delays, filter effects and lots more. Lots of memory storage, switchable even without the extra switcher pedal, but easier to do things with the accessory pedal. I have a Boss DD7, Vox Delay lab, and Vox Time Machine. Echolution 2 pro is the best sounding delay amongst these. I was very happy when I traded in my Digitech Digidelay for the Boss DD7 but this is much better sounding. The DD7 in comparison sounds mechanical. E2 It is very musical and natural, the way the number of repeats trail off is wonderful and it has various patterns for repeats. It is also very quiet. MIDI and programmable, however, I have not played with that part much. There was a bad LED diode in the first one I got, but Musiciansfriend replaced it very efficiently. there are no rubber feet, a stickable foam pad is included, which was missing in the second unit I received. I called the manufacturer and they are mailing one to me. The instructions seem daunting but this is actually very easy to use. For basic use, you may not even need to read the instructions. Please note the instruction manual applies to the UltraPro and this model so ignore the extra instructions. I do wish that model specific instructions should have been included instead of the general for all Echolution versions.

                  The all around quality and craftsmanship in this pedal is amazing. I've had it nearly a month and I'm still discovering things it can do. I've been using an expression pedal with mine to really tweak the speed of delay during playing. If I could have given it 4 1/2 stars I would, but as the pedal pc interface is not compatible with Windows 10 yet, I just have to wait before I can get updates and unlock the full potential of this fine piece of technology.
