Iconic record label Ninja Tune have announced their brand new Zen Delay effects pedal. Ninja Tune is the London hip-hop/electro label which is home to acts such as Thundercat and Sampa the Great among others.
Designed by Erica Synths, the Zen Delay was inspired by a trip to Superbooth. The idea sprang from the minds of Ninja Tunes Matt Black and his friend Dr Walker of the Liquid Sky artist collective.
Ninja Tune reveals a profession delay/filter effect – unusual territory for a record label. Designed by Erica Synths the Zen Delay is powerful, versatile and vibey.
The unit boasts a unique set of controls that are capable of serving up steaming hot experimental lo-fi textures. There is, of course, the customary delay time, dry/wet, feedback and level controls. The delay mode knob lets you select between the 6 delay types printed in the centre of the pedal. Tape, Tape Pingpong, Digital, Digital Pingpong, Crossover and Delay-off.
Over on the right hand side are the controls for the multi-mode 24 dB synth filter and valve overdrive. A filter cutoff, resonance and drive all help to shape the tone of your delay trails. The filter mode gives you a choice of low-pass, band-pass and high-pass filter types for enhanced flexibility.
The Zen Delay also comes with a tap tempo button, MIDI-in socket and a standard CV in jack.
