The Wampler Metaverse is a powerful studio and stage ready DSP multi-delay pedal with an ad-vanced MIDI command set. Comprising eleven of Brian Wampler’s favorite delays, the Metaverse is a full-featured, small-footprint stomp box that is fully programmable, preset capable, has stereo inputs and outputs, allows full MIDI control, and has an expression input that you can assign to ANY of the parameters.
Just like the Terraform that came before it, the Metaverse is an advanced, feature-packed pedal that allows you to navigate its settings without endless menus on a tiny display. Use the intuitive user interface or a separate MIDI controller to effortlessly traverse Wampler’s Metaverse of rich, expansive delay tones.
Eleven Onboard Delay Programs
The primary rotary controller selects between the eleven on-board delays, the five common param-eter controls adjust the setting for each of the different algorithms. Hold down the left footswitch to access alternate parameters for certain delays and save them as presets. Use a MIDI controller to access every parameter. Choose the delay time length using the tap tempo, send a MIDI global clock signal, or simply use the “Delay” knob – the Wampler Metaverse is one of the most user con-figurable pedals we have ever made!
1. ANLG – ANALOG STYLE DELAY
Inspired by Brian’s love of the Boss® DM-2® analog delay, we pay respect to its warm and responsive tone and give it that Wampler touch. This is the type of analog delay that would have been used a prolifically in the mid 1980’s.
2. WET – MODULATED ANALOG DELAY
One of the things that Brian loves about the Way Huge® Aqua Puss® analog delay is the chewiness and subtle tape-sounding modulation. We created those characteristics in this setting as a homage to the famed delay.
3. BBD – BUCKET BRIGADE DELAY
Brian always found himself pulling out an old Electro-Harmonix® Memory Man® pedal when looking for something inspirational to perform with. This setting draws inspiration from one of the greatest ‘Bucket Brigade’ delay pedals of all time – a circuit from the 1970s that was the first true alternative to tape delay.
4. JET – ANALOG FLANGER DELAY
This is where the team had a little fun. This Program combines the smooth ANLG Program with the unmistakeable whooshing sound of a beautiful additive flanger modulation effect.
5. DOC – WAMPLER ‘THE DOCTOR’
The next regeneration of the Doctor is surely a welcome one and has been modelled in this Program in full. Experience the warm modulated delay tone and trail degradation from one of Brian Wampler’s more experimental delay pedals.
6. FTE – WAMPLER ‘FAUX TAPE ECHO’
This is one of our most popular delay pedals and for good reason. A lot of tape emulation style delays simply add chorus to an existing digital delay circuit. Brian was not satisfied with this approach and re-engineered it to his taste. The result was a pedal that reacted and sounds just like a real tape delay unit with beautiful musical repeats.
7. ETH – WAMPLER ‘ETHEREAL’ DELAY
The Ethereal is Wampler’s famous ‘all-in-one’ digital delay and reverb pedal and this Pro-gram recreates the overlaying twin delays present on this pedal. This is not strictly a ‘dual delay’ algorithm but there is a secondary delay layer that adds a new pulsing dimension to the sound.
8. MOD – DIGITAL FLANGER DELAY
Like the JET delay setting, this mixes a gorgeous flange modulation with our crisp and clean DIGI algorithm to add an extra mix of awesome delay and modulation.
9. SPC – SPACE ECHO DELAY
This tape echo style algorithm is a tribute to both the classic Maestro® Echoplex® style de-lay and the Boss® Space Echo® – with Brian’s unique self-oscillating multi-dimensional take.
10. TAPE – MULTI HEAD TAPE DELAY
Inspired by the tones on classic records utilizing the vintage Binson® Echorec® and other mechanical tape delays, this program emulates some of the most important delay sounds in rock music.
11. DIGI – DIGITAL DELAY
Based on Brian’s tonal interpretation of what was considered the ‘Industry Standard’ digital delay, the TC Electronics® 2290® Dynamic Digital Delay, this program is super clean for precise, clean, and modern delay tones.
Brian Wampler’s attention to detail and commitment to designing the best and most player-friendly products out there are second to none. Those qualities are on full display within the Metaverse.
