    Clear Skies Ahead.

    Plug into BigSky and instantly lift your sound into the stratosphere. The world below you fades into the distance, and you're elevated into a glow of lush, glorious, radiant reverbs. 

    To create a reverb experience as natural, beautiful, and immersive as BigSky required tremendous feats of sound engineering and artistic imagination. Using the fundamentals of acoustical science as our beacon, we carefully studied and scientifically analyzed reverb technology from the past fifty years. We faithfully captured the essence of these classic sounds, and forged ahead to dream up our vision of reverbs from the future.

    Go Where No Reverb Has Gone Before.

    Feel the mechanical tension of the Spring reverbs. Hear the floating particles of the Cloud machine. Defy the laws of physics with the Nonlinear reverbs. Unleash the multi-head reverberations of the Magneto machine. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class reverb machines, each with simple yet powerful controls. 

    We knew we must take reverb to a whole new level. With careful attention to detail, innovative analog circuitry design, an insanely powerful SHARC processor, and the utilization of top-shelf components, we've developed a reverb pedal that fits on your pedal board yet has better audio quality than many rack reverb units. This fusion of science with art has just one goal. To provide you with the most musically inspirational reverb experiences possible.

    12 Unique Reverb Machines. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class, musically inspirational reverb machines:


    Front Panel: Decay, Pre-Delay, Mix, Tone, Param 1 (Assignable), Param 2 (Assignable), Mod
    Additional Parameters: Low End, Mid, Size

    Hall reverb machine

    Diffused reflections and slower-building density are the hallmarks of this beautiful and versatile reverb. The Concert size is well-balanced, spacious and warm, while the Arena size is huge, enveloping and booming.

    "Project BigSky" started as a journey of diligent research. We studied, reviewed and examined physical reverb units, algorithm architectures, academic papers and programming techniques from the past five decades. Within BigSky, we utilized traditional reverb elements such as feedback-delay networks, allpass-delay-filter loops, Schroeder reverb sections, multi-tapped delay-lines, as well as all-new reverb elements that we developed along the way. The goal was to find the best starting point for each reverb sound, and then elevate it into the 21st century.

    Designed and Built in the USA   

    The Display can show your Decay time, Preset name or Preset bank number. When editing a sound it will display your reverb parameters.

    Value gives you complete control over reverb parameters, global settings, and fine-tuning of Decay time.

    Each reverb machine type has it's own set of easily adjustable parameters.

    Decay controls the Decay time of the reverberated signal. The range can depend on the selected reverb machine.

    Pre-Delay adjusts the time between the dry signal and the onset of the reverb, from 0 to 1.5 seconds.

    For the Nonlinear and Magneto machines, this knob controls the amount of Feedback.

    Mix controls the balance of your analog dry signal and your wet signal, from 100% dry at minimum to 100% wet at maximum. The mix occurs entirely in analog.

    50/50 mix occurs when the Mix knob is set to 3:00.

    Type allows you to select your reverb machine type.

    Choose from Room to Shimmer and everything in between. Press to toggle the display between Bank and Time. Press and hold to save a preset.

    Tone adjusts the high end content of the reverb.

    Lower settings create darker, warmer reverberation, higher settings are bright and crisp. Set at 12:00 for a nicely balanced top end.

    Param 1 is assignable to any menu parameter for the current reverb machine, assignable per preset.

    Param 2 is assignable to any menu parameter for the current reverb machine, assignable per preset.

    Mod adds modulation to the reverberated signal.

    Lower settings modulate the delay lines lightly for a subtle and natural movement, higher settings tastefully add stronger modulation.

    A Footswitch activates or bypasses your preset.

    Press and hold for Infinite Sustain or Freeze, assignable per preset. Press A and B simultaneously to Bank Down through your presets.

    B Footswitch activates or bypasses your preset.

    Press and hold for Infinite Sustain or Freeze, assignable per preset.

    C Footswitch activates or bypasses your preset.

    Press and hold for Infinite Sustain or Freeze, assignable per preset. Press B and C simultaneously to Bank Up through your presets.

    Left Input - Plug your instrument in here. Acts as a mono input when only one channel is being used.

    Right Input - Plug your instrument in here.

    Left Output - Connect to your amp, mixing board, etc. Acts as a mono output when only one channel is being used.

    Right Output - Connect to your amp, mixing board, etc.

    Cab Filter provides a sophisticated speaker response curve, for use with a full-range PA system or while direct recording.

    MIDI Input - Connect to external MIDI controllers.

    MIDI Output - MIDI CCs can be sent out of the MIDI output whenever a knob is turned or a switch is pressed.
