Collision Devices Nocturnal
A note from Collision Devices:
Looking for an ambient and textures creation box?
As huge fans of cinematic atmospheric soundtracks and ambiences we wanted to develop a pedal made for soundscapes creation.
It's composed of a Shimmer Reverb, a Dynamic Tremolo and a Modulated Delay.
Each effect can be used together or separately and has its own momentary or trails function.
Pass from the Dusk, through the Night to the Dawn with the Nocturnal.
Completely built in France. From the enclosure to the circuit. Assembled by hand in our workshop.
The Nocturnal has a lifetime warranty. Of course.
Warmed and inspirational delay based on a tape delay circuit.
Mix : Controls the mix between Full Dry or 50% Dry / 50% Wet
Time : Time between each repetition. From a few ms to 1 second. Signal quality turns to Lo-Fi when it’s pushed to long repeats.
Feedback : Number of repetitions. Able to self oscillate very easily when the knob is around 7.5.
Modulation : Amount of modulation in the delay repetitions. Create a sort of old tape effect
Speed : Modulation’s frequency from 0.1 to 20 Hz.
Momentary effect : Feedback self oscillation when footswitch is long pushed
Turn a huge amount of shimmer and reverb into it to make it oscillate faster.
Sensibilty : Sensibility, turn it clockwise to make the tremolo more sensitive to your attack
Depth : Controls the tremolo’s volume
Momentary effect : Tremolo overspeed when footswitch is long pushed
Create bright soundscapes and loose the notion of time until the sunrise.
Blend : Controls the amount of Dry/Wet signal. You can have a full Wet reverb.
Reverb : Reverberation time. Max 15 sec.
Shimmer : Makes the reverb shimmer
Filter : Digital filter. Low pass. Lets you make the shimmer darker or more shiny
Colour : Notch active and analog filter around 2.2 kHz. Controls the Q of the filter.
Trails : when footswitch is long pushed, the trails are activated and it allows you to play with the dry signal with the shimmer trails
