Fascinating Rotary Speaker Technology Whitepaper From Strymon
If you know anything about the state of the art of guitar effects, you may have heard about Strymon in this past year. A reswizzled, rebranded son of Damage Control (who brought you the Timeline and Glass Nexus tube-equipped pedals), Strymon has spent most of 2010 releasing new an unbelieveable number of new and exciting digital modeling effects for guitarists: the Brigadier analog delay emulator, the El Capistan tape delay emulator, the Orbit Flanger, the Blue Sky Reverb… and each sounds better than the last.
For all those who thought the output would slow, Strymon has kicked off 2011 with some new offerings, including a rebranded and updated revision of the Timeline delay with MIDI control (which I MUST have), and the Lex rotary speaker emulator. At some point, I remember trying to draw out the physics of a rotating speaker cabinet on paper, but these guys have done a much better job by putting out a whole white paper on the matter – it’s definitely worth a read for musicians and geeks alike.
