Pigtronix releases two new Echolution 2 pedals
Pigtronix has released the Filter Pro and Ultra Pro, two new models in their Echolution 2 delay pedals series.
The PXE2U Echolution 2 Ultra Pro is described as a flexible multi-tap stereo modulation delay that features a wide array of customisable filter, LFO and pitch-shifting options, along with expression pedal and envelope control of each knob, and complete MIDI control of every function.
The PXE2F Echolution 2 Filter PRO is said to provide all the processing power and flexibility of the E2 Ultra PRO while presenting a streamlined user interface for use on stage. The E2 Filter Pro’s user interface provides front panel access to the multi-tap and filter options that have become essential for crafting a modern delay sound, as well as onboard access to the new Pigtronix pitch shifter algorithms.
Users can also employ either of these pedals with the additional PXE2-R Echolution Remote to switch instantly between presets or access jump and freeze effects for even more flexibility.
According to Pigtronix, the Echolution 2 series combines analog and digital processings and aim at achieving the richn sounds of a studio delay processor by using 100% analog Class-A discrete transistors as well as non-linear tape emulator stage and filters. Designed to work with both line level and and instrument sources, with high headroom but low noise operation, the Echolution 2 also features stereo inputs and outputs and an all-analog dry signal path. The Echolution 2 series has also been upgraded with pitch shifting capabilities and a new PC/MAC application to enhance its sound design potential. This new firmware is free and compatible with all versions of the Echolution 2 pedal.
