The Chemist V2
The Chemist V2
2 Rows Of Controls
The Chemist V2 is a 3 knob pedal with a 2nd row on knobs that you can toggle between. Like having a preset you can visually see this is great for users who want more flexibility without having to program anything!
3 Modulation Algorithms
- Chorus — Vintage analog inspired chorus that is warm
- Phaser —The phaser is inspired by classic vintage phaser units.
- Octave — The Octave has a very organ inspired warble to it that creates some amazing layers to your playing.
Your Atomic Modulator
From its rugged build quality and eye-catching graphics to its wide range of sounds and alternate settings, The Chemist v2 is one of the more innovative pedals we've seen here at Sweetwater. And keep in mind that we're constantly testing a staggering number of great pedals. We think Rick Matthews has come up with a winner here. The Chemist is impressively versatile and sounds pretty incredible. Atomic Modulator, indeed!
Presets without menus or programming
The Chemist's two rows of identical knobs consist of Reaction, which controls the mix of the effect; Catalyst, which controls the speed of the phaser and chorus and the mix of the upper octave; and Formula, which controls the delay time of the chorus, the resonance of the phaser, and the lower octave mix. You can independently select the algorithms for each row via the 3-position switches on the left side of the pedal. This gives you a quick and easy way to get two dynamic sounds on the fly.
The Chemist's Alt footswitch lets you jump between the two rows of controls, giving you the advantages of presets without the frustration of having to deal with menus or programming. You can also control the soft-touch Alt and Bypass switches remotely using a TRS cable plugged into the Alt Out jack. Tip controls the Alt Switch, and ring controls the Bypass Switch. The pedal's analog dry path signal keeps your instrument's dry signal completely analog while mixing in the digital wet signal set via the Reaction knob. The Chemist also features an Expression pedal jack to dynamically control the Formula knob on the second row of controls. When you have an expression pedal TRS cable plugged in, this bypasses the physical knob.
