Catalinbread has announced the release of the "Montavillian Echo" effect.


The Montavillian Echo utilizes the PT2399 chip, a delay chip used in modern delays, however, rather than following the datasheet, Catalinbread say they "threw it out and ventured out on [their] own, using [their] ears. The Montavillian Echo is also described as a "companderless" echo...

 

Here is what the manufacturer had to say:

"This is a critically important part of the Montavillian Echo's character. So many companded echos have unattractive repeats, they sorta bubble, chirp, and become messy as the repeats get quieter… The effect ruins the illusion of SPACE and ambience. The Montavillian has no compounding, therefore the echos trail off almost forever over the horizon, disappearing into the ether rather than crash landing back to earth."

 

"The resulting echos function to provide a sonic soup, a bed of ambience to play over. The illusion of space and size that the Montavillian provides, makes it one of the few stompboxes I have that comes close to my big old tube echos. Basic and useful features include 9-18V DC operation for additional headroom, 50mS-600+mS delay time, "CUT" control which tailors where your repeats sit in the mix low pass filter with a musical bump that ranges from 400Hz to 1400Hz."
