When Strymon decided to create a studio-class stereo delay effects pedal, they knew they must go well beyond what has been done in the past—in sound quality, sonic flexibility, hardware design, and processing power. Strymon spent months locked up in the Strymon sound design labs with an intense focus on dreaming up the most spacious, lush, creative, and tweakable delay effects ever heard. It was a monumental task—a relentless study of delays and their nuances, and a continuous pursuit of innovative and musically inspirational sounds. Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed. Each algorithm is so detailed it requires the entire processor.
