EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master V3
The Dispatch Master’s hi-fi delay and reverb sounds and intuitive control set have made it a staple of pro pedalboards around the globe. It features a dynamic reverb that goes from natural and roomy to cavernous and deep, up to 1.5 seconds of delay time, and a dialled-in delay Repeats control delivering anything between a single echo to infinite repeats without unpleasant digital artefacts or runaway self-oscillation. Its simplicity has made it a popular “always on” effect for players who want to add a touch of ambience and slapback to their clean tone, and its lush ambient sounds make it a perfect fit for modern and experimental players.
The smaller and more modern answer to our well loved limited run Ghost Disaster from 2010! The Dispatch Master is a digital delay and reverb unit with an all analog direct signal path and true bypass switching. It is capable of producing nearly 2 seconds of delay time with near-infinite repeats and a cavernous reverb. Both effects can be run separately or in unison. Even though it is a DSP based effect, the sound is warm and full. No sterile lifeless tones here! The delay signal is clear and strong with no after effects or signal degradation and the repeats decay into a nice ambient swell with no oscillation. The reverb is MASSIVE and is sure to please those who love our Ghost Echo but want more depth and less artifacts. The perfect “Black Hole Ambience Generator”!
The version 3:
Still packed to the brim with crystalline delays and seemingly endless reverberating soundscapes, the renowned Dispatch Master V3 now features EarthQuaker Devices proprietary flexi-switch for seamless switching between standard latch mode and cool momentary operation, seeing you create everything from dreamy lingering soundscapes to short glitchy bursts of ambience. An all-time EarthQuaker Devices favourite just got even better!
• Digital delay & reverb in one pedal – with 1.5 seconds of delay time
• Independent control over delay and/or reverb effects
• Flexi-Switch™ allows for momentary and traditional latching-style switching from a single footswitch
• All-analog dry signal path
• Silent soft-touch switching
• True Bypass
Requires 9V DC centre negative. Draws approx 78ma
Now the same brilliantly simple and easy-to-use digital Delay & Reverb Device includes EarthQuaker Devices’ proprietary Flexi-Switch™ Technology. Exclusive to EarthQuaker Devices effects pedals, Flexi-Switch™ allows for traditional latching and/or momentary-style switching from a single silent relay-based true-bypass footswitch.
To use the Dispatch Master V3 as a standard effects pedal, press the switch once to activate the effect, and press again to bypass. For momentary operation, press and hold the footswitch, and the Dispatch Master will remain active for as long as the switch is held. Once the switch is released, the effect is bypassed.
Time: Controls the delay time, from 0ms to nearly 2000ms
Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delayed signal. Also acts as a enhancer for the reverb. In reverb mode this will control the thickness, decay, depth and overall nature of the reverb.
Reverb: Controls the reverb mix
Mix: Controls the over all level of the effected signal
To use as a reverb only, turn the time control all the way down and adjust the reverb and mix controls to taste. In this mode, the repeats control can be used to enhance the thickness, decay, depth and overall nature of the reverb. With the reverb control at it’s maximum setting,
the repeats control will gradually overload the effect at higher settings.
To use as a delay only, turn the reverb control all the way down and adjust the time, repeats and mix controls to taste.To use both effects in unison, adjust all controls to taste.
