Malekko Heavy Industry Downer
The Malekko Heavy Industry Downer combines the power of wavefolding or saturation, pitch shifting down to one octave, and both high-pass and low-pass filters all in one compact package with just 6 knobs.
The PREAMP drives the Wavefolding or Saturation from subtle to extreme.
The BLEND control adjusts the Dry/Octave balance from 100% Dry to 100% Octave.
The High-pass and Low-pass filters allow for sculpting the perfect tone.
Add the ability to assign an expression pedal to your own combinations and settings within these features and in one sweep, you can dial your tone from classic, heavy fuzz to screaming experimental madness!
- Saturation or Wavefolding
- Control over Octave Down (detune to one full octave down)
- Control over Octave blend (up to 100%)
- Separate High and Low-pass filtering
- Preamp level control
- Assignable expression pedal control to any combination of all controls and settings
SATURATION / WAVEFOLDING:
Choose between Saturation (distortion) and Wavefolding as this gives distortion with extreme harmonics. Also, it sets the overall output level of either effect.
Set to max CCW for zero filtering
Downward pitch shift CCW to one octave.
Set to max CW for zero filtering.
Adds DOWN amount to output. Set to max CW for 100% DOWN. Set to max CCW for 0% DOWN.
Input gain control. PREAMP amount will modify effect response and affect output level.
Effect on/off Input clipping
EXPRESSION/CV INPUT JACK:
Expression pedal input for remote control of any combination of parameters. Both positive and negative sweep can be assigned simultaneously. CV input will also control all parameters.
POWER: 9vDC adapter (neg tip). The current draw is approximately 50mA.
