Limited Edition Luminary Quad Octave Generator
Posted on 26 August 2016
We're super excited to put out this extremely limited to 20 run of our Luminary Quad Ocatve Generator. Featuring updated artwork with a wide-eyed, blood shot eyeball that stares back at you, emanating tonal energy. For this batch only, our stylized dystopian eye has been changed to a more "eyeconic" style. Get your eyes on these now. If you blink, you'll miss it!
For this batch only, our normal grey enclosure has changed its wardrobe into a gritty teal blue texture with red, white and dark blue ink. Grab one now because we won't run these colors again!
The Luminary is a powerful polyphonic quad octave generator with features for creating inspiring symphonic gusts of sound. Operating on the Analog Devices Sharc platform, the Luminary gives you the ability to dial in any combination of four separate octaves including -2, -1, +1, and +2, the user can craft many different complex sounds and textures with crystal clear and immediate octave tracking. The Luminary has three onboard presets available for saving your go-to sounds, as a well as live mode. This means the user can have up to four custom sounds available at any moment. Get epic steel sounds with the modulation control unengaged. You’ll find more experimental options with the filter control or a swirling chorus with the flutter control. Couple the Luminary with an expression pedal to expand its creativity even more.
Four octave options available -2, -1, +1, +2 – The four knobs across the top of the pedal control the level of each octave. With the Dry/Wet control, the user can explore the ground between minimum and 12 o’clock to keep the octave signal lower than your dry signal for subtleness. The territory between 12 o’clock and maximum keeps the user’s dry signal lower than unity for a boastful octave sound.
The Attack control dictates how fast the octaves bloom after the initial attack. Allow the octaves to swell in gradually at a higher attack setting. Hear immediate octave response with the attack control low or off. The Filter knob controls the cutoff of a low-pass filter on the octave signals and also increases an envelope type effect at higher settings. The Flutter knob enables a chorus effect that can be applied to the octaves. At zero, the chorus effect is off. Increasing this knob engages the chorus modulation and controls the rate of the effect. At lower settings, the user hears a lightly modulated seasick effect, and when set higher, the user can achieve some alluring ring modulation type sounds.
The expression control allows the manipulation of any combination of these options to allow the user to customize the effectiveness of the Luminary: -1 and +1 octave volume, +1 octave volume, Attack, Flutter, and Dry/Wet
