Description

The first in the Mako series, the D1 is a powerful multi-function delay with five, studio grade, high-fidelity, custom tuned programs. The programs are Digital, Mod, Vintage, Dual and Reverse. Each can be tuned and tweaked with modulation, tone, age and subdivisions. The attack knob adds another dynamic to each program, opening up a new world for creating soundscapes. The D1 boasts stereo in and out, MIDI control and on-board presets. A workhorse of a delay that is just as ready for the road as it is the studio.

Each program can be fully customized to your taste and playing style with the Tweak knob. Flip the toggle switch to Mod to bring in a tasteful modulation to your delay trails. Tone will brighten or darken your delay trails. Age will add some grit and wear reminiscent of vintage delay units. Subdivisions can be easily changed between quarter, eighth and dotted eighth.

The Attack knob will soften the attack of the echoes. Dreamy and ethereal soundscapes can be created with higher repeat and attack settings.

Programs

Digital - The Digital delay program offers a clean and crystal-clear delay that is perfect for rhythmic guitar parts where ultra-defined echoes are desired.

Mod - The Mod delay progam has unique modulation LFOs applied to the repeats that are random and run at multiple rates to create unpredictable pitch modulation. This results in very unique sounding repeats perfect for warping minds and scattering trains of thought.

Vintage – The Vintage program allows for analog delay inspired tones to be achieved with complex filtering applied to the repeats. Use the tone knob at low settings for darker filtering and at higher settings to roll off low end.

Dual - The Dual program employs two delays in parallel, each with different time divisions. When connected in mono, the two delays are added together. When connected in stereo, one set of repeats is sent to the left output and one set is sent to the right. The division switch has unique functionality in Dual mode. We’ll break it down for you below:

  • In the quarter note position, the D1 offers 1/4 note and 1/4 triplet repeats

  • In the eighth note position, the D1 offers 1/8 note and 1/4 triplet repeats

  • In the dotted eighth note position, the D1 offers 1/4 note and 1/8 repeats

Reverse - The Reverse program reads the delay memory backwards creating a unique delay repeat character known as reverse delay.

Presets

The D1 is capable of saving up to nine on-board presets and up to 128 are accessible via MIDI. Onboard presets are accessible with the bank switch. Cycle between presets in each bank by pressing bypass and tap at the same time. You will see the tap LED change from Red to Green to Blue. Any adjustments made in a preset will change the tap LED to purple to show that you have edited the preset. Refer to the manual for accessing and saving presets via MIDI.

Bypass and Tempo Modes

The D1 has three different bypass modes. True bypass, DSP+True Bypass (trails), and DSP Bypass. The D1 offers global and preset tempo modes. Global mode keeps the tempo the same when changing presets. Preset tempo will use the delay time that was stored when the preset was saved. Refer to the manual for more info on switching modes.

Momentary Functions

Press and hold the bypass switch to ramp up the repeats of the delay. Release to set the feedback back to the knob location.

Specs

The D1 comes in an anodized silver finish with black, dark green, red, orange and purple ink. 

The enclosure’s exact size with knobs is 4.9” x 2.52” x 2.64”. Power requirements are 9VDC (300mA minimum). The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals. Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended. Power supply not included.

  • D1 ook voor toetsenisten 4/8/2020
    Als toetsenist ben ik blij dat deze delay pedaal ook fantastisch klinkt wanneer je ze bij allerlei keyboards gebruikt. Om te componeren moet je in een bepaalde sfeer zitten die de ene dag al helemaal anders is dan de andere. Deze D1 helpt je in zo'n mood te komen en draagt zeker bij tot de inspiratie van het moment. En dan heb je ook nog de stereo wat sowieso al een verrijking van jewelste is wanneer je in je speelruimte zit. Bij elke minimale draai aan een van de zes knoppen hoor je iets veranderen en eens dat je hoort wat je wilt kun je het meteen en heel eenvoudig opslaan. Negen presets kun je hier in kwijt. En er is MIDI aan boord, altijd gemakkelijk wanneer je dit bakje mee in je MIDI set-up kunt laten meelopen. Zachte aan- en uitschakelaar ook in te drukken via de hand zonder pijnlijke vingers er aan over te houden. Inderdaad, bij ons staan die effecten dikwijls ter hoogte van de toetsen van een piano en in mijn geval op een pedalboard gemonteerd op een statief, en dat is niet uit gemak dan wel omdat je gewoonlijk neerzit achter je toetsen en aan je voeten is het behoorlijk donker en vind je al spelend de knop niet onmiddellijk en hop, moment voorbij en...te laat. Over het algemeen zit er in de betere synth’s en piano’s een heel gamma effecten ingebouwd maar je zult nooit hetzelfde effect bereiken dan wanneer je een echte delay pedaal met deze kwaliteiten gebruikt. Zonder twijfel staat deze MAKO D1 in het rijtje 'TOP' en vanaf nu steevast mee op het pedalboard. William Beckers
