The Lysis MKII is finally here! Is it a fuzz pedal, an octave, a sweeping filter, some kind of synth machine? YES!!
Building on the foundation of SGFX’s original Lysis design, the Lysis MKII pushes the envelope even further with a number of new features and functionality that increase player interaction and versatility.
Main Features include:
- Polyphonic pitch shifting delivering octave down, octave down/up and super power chord voicings.
- Selectable HP/LP filters with adjustable resonance.
- Discrete analog fuzz circuit.
- 3 Wave modes (triangle, sine, square) each with 11 presets for a total of 33 settings.
- Tap Tempo control with speed ramping & LFO braking.
- Soft touch true bypass switching.
- Assignable expression/CV operation.
The Lysis MKII is designed to meld the world of strings with that of synths. The Lysis MKII applies thick, resonant filters, multiple polyphonic voicings and sweeping LFO’s, all drenched in an analog square-wave fuzz to your instrument of choice.
At the core of the Lysis is a discrete FET preamp and high-gain fuzz circuit feeding into our digital polyphonic voice and filter generator, then back into a discrete transistor output stage offering the best of both analog and digital signal processing.
While the high-pass and low-pass filters carry over from the previous generation, they are controlled by SGFX’s new tap tempo LFO loaded with 33 different triangle, sine and square waveshapes coupled with 3 preset resonance settings for your choice of soft modulation or heavy, rhythmic sweeps. The Voice selector has been expanded to include the previous octave down setting as well as a new octave down/octave up voicing and SGFX’s Super Power Chord featuring octave down/fifth pitch shifting.
Combined with our feature rich yet easy to use control set, the Lysis MKII quickly becomes an extension of your instrument and an inspirational toolbox. There’s nothing left to do but to plug in and let the Lysis MKII sweep you off to synth/fuzz nirvana.
