This compact and multifaceted pedal delivers a powerful impact with its trio of distinct algorithms: Phaser, Chorus, and Harmonic Tremolo, opening up a realm of limitless creative opportunities for shaping your sonic landscape.

  • Highlights


    The Botanist can receive MIDI over 3.5mm TRS. Use MIDI to control all its features and parameters


    The Botanist is designed to operate as a traditional 3 knob pedal if you dont want to create presets and use MIDI but it also has a total of 6 presets you can access via PC MIDI. If there are no saved presets the pedal will load the current position of the knobs but once a preset has been saved the pedal will auto load preset 1 on boot up. 


    By holding the footswitch down the Botanist will max the "Depth" knob and when you release it the pedal returns to its previous state. This is great for accenting certain notes.


    Although the pedal does not have a direct Expression jack input you have full control over all 3 knobs via MIDI CC messages. Use a expression pedal in conjunction with a midi controller, like the futurist, to give you expression control.

  • Algorithms

    The Botanist offers a deep set of features to bring you the most value to your pedalboard.


    The "Phaser" mode introduces an innovative 8-step phasing effect, granting you precise control over essential parameters such as mix, rate, and depth. With these versatile controls at your fingertips, you can sculpt and fine-tune your sonic landscape to achieve the perfect sound for your musical endeavors.


    The "Chorus" mode is a brand new and unique algorithm. When the mix is all the way left you get only dry signal, at noon you get a x4 voiced chorus effect mixed with your dry signal, at the far right you get a single voice vibrato perfect for adding texture to your sound.


    The "Tremolo" mode provides a warm and inviting harmonic tremolo effect, meticulously designed to enrich and elevate your musical performance. This mode is perfect for those moments when you want to add depth, character, and a touch of vibrancy to your playing, enabling you to create a captivating and immersive sonic experience for both yourself and your audience.
