Like the Kilobyte, the Megabyte was made for the fans of lo-fi, low-res delay that calls back to effects of the 1980s. It features two old-school, digital, lo-fi PT2399 chips for up to 1200 milliseconds of delay, which is available via time control or tap tempo. Speaking of, tap tempo includes three repeater options available via the divide control: quarter notes, eights, or dotted eights. According to Caroline Guitar Co., "Hold down the tap button and the havoc self oscillation begins almost immediately."
The gain preamp in the pedal gives players up to 21dB of drive on just the "wet" signal, so players can choose between leaving the pedal's signal clean, boosting just the repeats, or really making them as dirty as possible. The Megabyte also includes a wave trimpot for dialing up modulation from subtle detunes to noticeable warble and shifted pitch.
- Two PT2399 chips allow us to give you up to 1200ms of gorgeous delay time, available via the time control or tap tempo. The gain preamp still gives up to +21 db of drive on just the “wet” signal, so you can leave it clean, just boost the repeats, or make them super dirty. The wave trimpot allows you to dial up modulation from subtle detunes to noticeable warble and shifted pitch.
- Tap tempo includes three repeater options available via the divide control – quarter notes, eighths, or dotted eighths. Hold down the tap button and the havoc self oscillation begins almost immediately.
- The pedal is also set up for either trails or true bypass – the bypass mode will glow blue for trails (where the repeats that were in process are still heard after you turn the effect off) or red for true bypass. Simply hold the pedal bypass pedal down for two seconds to change the bypass mode.
