Strymon has presented the prototype of the Generalissimo, a 28HP five-in-one Eurorack module.

According to Strymon, not only does Generalissimo allow you to create an abundance of warm, gooey, and saturated tape soundscapes, it also provides a huge amount of utility and versatility, giving you the functions of five separate modules in one:

  • Four Head Tape Echo.
  • Sound on Sound Looper.
  • Spring Reverb.
  • Clock Multiplier.
  • Self-Oscillator.

Generalissimo’s Speed knob is said to be calibrated in a very musical and playable way so that it’s easy to hit octaves when adjusting the pitch, allowing to play with delays like a proper instrument. The Tap button sets the delay time, effectively determining the tempo by setting the tape head distance. The Tap control is entirely independent of the Speed setting, and this independence is key to the impact Generalissimo will have on the overall sound and user's creativity.

Users can also use use control voltage to control the Speed, Playback level, Feedback amount, and Reverb level. The dry path is also completely analog, avoiding any conversion-related noise or latency.

Specs include:

  • Processor-intense dTape algorithms deliver meticulously nuanced recreations of tape echo systems
  • Four-head tape echo with delay time adjustable independent of tape speed
  • Individual tape adjustment and tone shaping knobs for: Speed, Dry Signal Level, Playback Level, Feedback, Record Level, Low Cut, Tape Age, Crinkle, Wow & Flutter, Spring Reverb Level
  • Sound on Sound mode with instant tape splice and bulk erase. A built-in tape-style looper with a three-head tape echo front end!
  • Individual level controls for each of the four playback heads
  • Individual feedback taps for switching each of the four playback heads in or out of the feedback circuit
  • Super low noise, high performance 24-bit 96kHz A/D and D/A converters
  • 115db typical signal to noise
  • Analog dry path for a zero latency dry signal that is never converted to digital
  • 20Hz to 20kHz frequency response
  • Premium analog front end and output section
  • Super high performance SHARC DSP
  • 32-bit floating point processing
  • Rugged anodized green aluminum chassis
  • Size: 28 HP
  • Designed and built in the USA

However, this is only a prototype with features being likely to change between now and the commercial release (planned for the Summer 2016) of the final product, which retail price is planned at $599. More details at strymon.net.
