Mantic Effects Proverb V2
The Mantic Effects Proverb V2 is the same beloved circuit as the original Proverb but in a smaller enclosure.
Simple, unique sounding, spring-style reverb with subtle modulation and the ability to self-oscillate in creative, user controlled fashions. Create euphoric and meditative textures with character and tact, or drown out your thoughts completely in a sea of Gaussian noise.
Its sound is very big and ambient but can also give more subtle spatial tone
Turn the “Numb” control down and “Dwell” up for self-oscillating nirvana! If desired, it will continue to self-oscillate while bypassed, allowing the user to trigger blasts of chaotic sound with just a click of the footswitch
Hold down the momentary oscillation foot-switch for self-oscillating nirvana! Max the dwell for great, but controlled, self oscillation.
However, Mantic’s Proverb will carry on oscillating when bypassed, giving great continuity and natural transitions
The Proverb also provides the user with the ability to dynamically control the “Dwell” amount via an expression pedal (Moog EP or equivalent).
Spring reverb that also has a bit of a spacey vibe
Notable users include: Ikey Owens, Ed Rodriguez, Nick Reinhart, and Simon Francis
Collector / Emitter do a nice demo here
- Mix: Set the amount of effect present in the signal
- Numb: Subdues the clarity of the reverb
- Dwell: Adjusts the decal length and modulation amount of the signal
-Heavy duty 3PDT footswitches
-Industry standard 9v DC barrel jack(center negative)
-Expression control jack to control the “dwell”, allowing the user to expressively change the reverb tone and bring in or pull out reverb self-oscillation (compatible with any Moog EP, or equivalent)
Requires 9V DC centre negative supply. 80mA current draw

To be honest, I didn’t keep the pedal very long at all.
There was a perceptible volume drop when the pedal was engaged, even when dialling up the mix level.
The actual reverb tone was OK, especially at the longer, ambient settings, but the volume issue was too frustrating.
Overall the pedal was pretty underwhelming, especially when compared with pedals like the Caroline Meteore, JPTR Kaleidoscope and Death by Audio Reverberation Machine (all of which I have or have had on other boards).
Sorry I can’t be more positive.
Love GFXD though. No complaints there!
