Finegear is proud to present arkive_effects_, a curated series of effects designed for sonic experimentation.
The Dust Collector is the first of the series, aiming to honor and expand upon the history of experimentation in music, shaking some of the dust that has settled on the 1970’s.
The Dust Collector contains 2 VC LFOs and 5 independent audio effects: 2 tape saturations, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. However, this is more than the standard multi- effect box, as each module has been analysed and tweaked to support your creative process. You can go further inside with several moddable features directly on the PCB.
The Dust Collector will help you uncover unique sounds and new uses for effects you thought you knew. You can insert an effect in the delay’s feedback loop, add modulation to the phaser (as well as to pretty much every effect), poke the tank's three springy insides hiding behind the removable acrylic cover.
This manual will describe in detail each effect and module, as well as explain all the controls and interactions that are possible with them. Useful technical information is also provided, while signal path diagrams and calibration procedures can be found in the annexes.
