EarthQuaker Devices Depths Optical Vibe Machine V2
Product Code: EQD-DEP2
EarthQuaker Device The Depths.
The Depths is our take on the classic optical vibe circuit. It creates a lush, phasing pulse which delivers a three-dimensional swirling sound. The Depths has been optimised to work well with all types of instrument, pickup types and to play well with dirt. With its “Voice” and “Throb” controls, The Depths can achieve sounds from thin and subtle to warm and deep and everything in between.
Voice: Dials in the overall sound. Turn it clockwise for a fuller sound with more lows, bring it back for a thinner, more midrange focused tone.
Throb: This controls the low end pulse. It may not be immediately evident on the bridge pickup, but switch to the neck or add some dirt and it comes alive. All the way up for more throb, dial it back for less. Works best when the “Voice” is set to a warmer tone.
Intensity: This controls how subtle or intense the overall effect is. Counter clockwise from noon are the more subtle, classic sounds. Clockwise from noon are the more drastic and intense sounds.
Rate: Controls the speed of the effect. Counterclockwise for slow, clockwise for fast.
Level: Controls the volume of the effect. Unity is around 1 O’clock, everything above that is boost.
