The Dark Star from Old Blood Noise Endeavors is a reverb that goes beyond a standard spring or plate. Its primary function is creating reverb pads, which can set the tone for music, provide atmospheric drones, and overall, create a mood beyond a standard reverb unit. It features three different modes, each with its own character. Pitch mode turns CTRL 1 and CTRL 2 into individual pitch selectors that range in near-octaves with each control. Delay mode functions as it sounds, adding controllable delay to the signal via the CTRL knobs, which allow users to adjust the time and feedback of the modulation. In Crush mode, users get a pitch control and a bit crushing effect, giving the signal a great lo-fi flair. With all these elements combined, the Dark Star provides players lush and adjustable layers to add to their projects.
Version 2 features expression out jack and clickless switching with an output level that is tweakable via an internal trim pot.
