Astronomer V2 Celestial Reverb


The Astronomer V2 is a unique three-knob reverb pedal that harnesses the power of the celestial bodies. Chart your course with two sets of identical controls allowing you to jump between the top and bottom row of knobs effortlessly. Always visible and editable on the fly, this works as a preset without any programming or menu diving. You can set each row to be a completely different sound. For example, set a deep shimmer on one, a light reverb on the other or create any combination of two distinct sounds and alternate between them instantly. For each set of controls, there is a slide switch on the side of the pedal that lets you select one of three reverb effect constellations: Canis Major, Orion and Ursa Major. Discover an entire universe of unique reverb effects using the Astronomer V2 pedal.






Mass – Adjust the Wet/Dry mix using the “Mass” control. All the way up is a 100% wet signal.


Glow – Adjusts the mix of the shimmer on the Orion and Canis Major effect. Adjusts the octave mix on the Ursa Major effect.


Travel – Adjusts the decay time of all three reverb algorithms.






Alt Switch (secondary foot switch) – What sets the Astronomer V2 apart from other pedals is the Alt controls. The three knobs on the “Top” row of the pedal are duplicated on the “Bottom” row giving you two different settings/sounds which you can jump between. You can independently select the algorithms for each row using the slide switches on the side of the pedal. This creates a simple and straightforward way to get two dynamic sounds on the fly.


Alternate Jack Out – This input allows you to control the Alt and bypass switch remotely using a TRS cable. Tip controls the Alternate Switch and ring controls the Bypass Switch.


Analog Dry Path Signal – Your instrument’s dry signal path is kept completely analog while mixing in the digital wet signal creating a unique and unparalleled reverb sound.


Expression Jack – Plug in an expression pedal to dynamically control the “Travel” knob on the 2nd row of controls. This bypasses the physical knob on the 2nd row when the expression pedal is plugged in. TRS cable required.


Tails or Bypass Mode – The Astronomer V2 allows the beautiful haunting layers to continue as you switch the pedal Off, preventing an abrupt cut to your sound. If you desire that hard-cut when bypassing the pedal, simply hold both foot switches for 10 seconds until the bypass led flashes. Do the same to switch it back.
