The Avalanche Run is a dreamy sonic discovery device with up to 2 seconds of delay time and a lush stereo reverb. It features complete control over delay time, repeats, mix and voice (with the tone control), as well as control over the reverb length and mix. It can run in one of 3 different modes: Normal, Reverse and Swell. In “Normal” mode, the Avalanche Run functions as a straightforward delay and reverb. In “Reverse” mode, the delay line is in reverse and the reverb remains in normal mode. In “Swell” mode, the Avalanche Run reacts to your picking dynamics and adds a volume swell to the entire signal path much like manually raising and lowering the volume of your guitar.
The Avalanche Run features an expression jack that can be assigned to one of six different controls using the “EXP” selector switch. It also features Tap Tempo with six different ratios accessed via the “Ratio” selector switch. The Avalanche Run can also be run in “True Bypass” mode or “Buffered Bypass” mode for trails and features 5 different tail lengths including “Infinite” for lo-fi and continuously degrading pseudo-looping.
The Activate switch features our Flexi-Switch™ Technology! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.
The Tap switch also has a few other cool secondary functions. While in Normal and Swell mode, you can send the Avalanche Run into self-oscillation by holding down the “Tap” foot switch. In Reverse, mode holding down the Tap switch will flip the delay back into Normal mode and return to Reverse mode once released!
Time- This controls the delay time and goes from 0ms to just under 2000ms.
Repeats- Controls the regeneration of the delay, from zero repeats to near infinite.
Tone- Controls the tone for the delay line only. Roll off highs to the left, roll off lows to the right and get a flat response in the middle.
Mix- The is the volume control for the delay line. This blends in the wet with dry until 1 o’clock, 1 o’clock to 3 o’clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 o’clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
Expression Jack Assign Switch- Use this switch to map the expression jack to one of the assigned controls.
Decay- Controls the decay length of the reverb, short decay counterclockwise, long cavernous decay clockwise.
Mix- This is the volume control for the reverb. Blends in the wet with dry until 1 O’clock, 1 O’clock to 3 O’clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 O’clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
Ratio Selector Switch- Selects delay subdivisions when time is set by the “Tap” switch.
TOGGLE SWITCH (MODE SELECTOR)
Both- This is the “standard” delay and reverb mode
Reverse- This is reverse delay mode with “standard” reverb
Swell- This is the volume swell mode
The Avalanche Run also has a “Tails” mode. Tails mode allows the wet signal to naturally fade out after the effect is switched off. It has 5 Tail length settings that are selected by the Ratio switch during power up.
The audio jacks are located on the north side of the pedal, along with the 9v 425ma power jack.
