The Astronomer V2
The Astronomer V2
Two independent reverbs in one
Each of the Astronomer V2’s three original ambience algorithms can be assigned to and controlled from its two 3-knob control rows. So whether you want instant access to two entirely different textures — say, a dark hall or a bright angelic shimmer — or two different voicings for the same algorithm, Matthews Effects puts you in the observer’s chair of this versatile pedal. Choose between:
- Canis Major — This echo-verb is custom-built for drones, swells, and atmosphere building. The Glow control brings up boatloads of angelic upper-octave shimmer effects.
- Orion — In what Matthews Effects describes as the quintessential hall reverb, the Orion algorithm unleashes infinite halls of untold sizes. As with Canis Major, the Glow control makes it possible to enrich reverbs with a gorgeous shimmery tail.
Whether you’re the type of player who likes your reverbs cut clean when you disable the pedal or the type who prefers your tails to linger after you step on the kill switch, the Matthews Effects Astronomer V2 has you covered. Hold both switches for 10 seconds to toggle bypass modes. Easy peasy.
1/4" expression and alternate inputs
The Astronomer V2 from Sweetwater gives you two additional options for getting the most out of your pedal. The 1/4" expression pedal input offers hands-free control of the Travel (decay) function of the second row of knobs for dynamic space control. Additionally, a 1/4" alternate output allows you to access the Astronomer V2’s FX toggle switch via remote switch anywhere on your pedalboard. Expression pedal and external switch sold separately.
