New Sonic Territory.
NightSky is a reverb pedal you will want to get your hands on. Deep and powerful sound manipulation with instant response knob-tweaking and no menu diving set a new standard in experimental reverb sound design.
What is Strymon NightSky?
Experience the wide variety of sounds that can be created.
Warp Core Reverb.
NightSky achieves some of its most mind bending sounds by using a Variable Process Rate for its reverb core, allowing you to simultaneously change the size of the reverb as well as the pitch. This pitch change can be completely smooth, or quantized to a variety of musical scales. And it can be sequenced.
Harmonic Sculpture Machine.
Use Shimmer to shift the harmonic structure by selectable musical intervals. Add Glimmer to dynamically enhance the harmonic spectrum. Turn up Drive to generate saturated overdriven harmonics. Then sculpt the resulting signal with NightSky’s synth-like variable-resonance low pass filter.
Challenge The Conventions.
NightSky evolved from a desire to push the envelope and challenge the conventions of traditional reverb while also paying homage to the experimental reverberant sounds from decades past.
It started with the variable rate core. Once that was nailed down, we knew we had to complement it with a set of sound-shaping features that could take full advantage of the unique possibilities and expand them exponentially. This led us to a full-featured modulation section, a 4-pole resonant filter, and a unique Voice section to control the reverb’s harmonic structure.
Three selectable reverb types offer a wide variety of ambient textures :
MOD section with various waveforms to modulate the reverb or tone filters
TONE section to sculpt the high and low EQ of the reverb
VOICE section to enhance the aural spectrum of the reverb
SHIMMER for adding pitch shifting of up to +/- 1 octave to the reverb
GLIMMER dynamically enhances high or low frequency harmonics for synth-like textures
Pre or Post DRIVE to add saturated overdriven harmonics to the reverb
Adjustable reverb core size to increase or decrease the space for reflections
Independent REVERB and DRY level controls
Step sequencer for programming rhythmic pitch variations of the reverb
Access to 16 presets from the front panel and 300 presets via MIDI
