The Chase Bliss Audio Warped Vinyl was originally designed to simulate the sound of old warped vinyl records being played through a classic hi-fi system. What it ended up being was a diverse analogue vibrato/chorus pedal that brings together these two iconic effects with enough control to dial in everything from classic modulation to modern ambient wonder.
While a lot of modern chorus pedals are designed to have perfect pitch modulation with little warble the Warped Vinyl embraces the effects of real analogue circuitry with imperfect movements. This odd movement certainly gives everything a vintage vibe when used in moderation but when turned up really gets in to the weird and wonderful.
So Many Controls!
One of the things that Chase Bliss Audio does to nearly all of their gear is use real all analogue tone circuits with a digital brain. This brain is nowhere near the tone circuit but gives you extra control over every possible part of the pedal without it having to be as wide as your pedalboard. That is how they have managed to put 16 little dip switches on the back of the pedal so you can craft this pedal to be as vintage inspired or as absolutely crazy and modern as you want.
Here's what Chase Bliss Audio say about the Warped Vinyl Mk II
Originally conceived to simulate the effect of a warped vinyl record, but that is only scratching the surface of what Warped Vinyl mkII can do. This "true pitch" analog vibrato/chorus pedal features an all-analog signal path that can be dialed in to create limitless palette of vibrato and chorus. Warped Vinyl mkII has several changes, including a tone knob for shimmery, transparent vibrato/ chorus as well as an increased signal to noise ratio. Further, every knob and switch is connected to a little digital brain while your guitar signal stays 100% analog the entire time and never gets digitally processed. Since the control of the effect is digital, it opens up unprecedented effects and features that have never been heard or offered in analog stompboxes.
