LIGHT Analog Optical Spring Reverb | GAMECHANGER AUDIO

Let there be LIGHT!

Latvia's premier pedal designer, Gamechanger Audio, unveils a bright new idea: the LIGHT Analog Optical Spring Reverb pedal, the first analog optical spring reverb to incorporate infra-red optical sensors.

Pointed at different areas of the three center-mounted springs, these sensors detect even the smallest movements, many of which are too subtle to affect most mechanical reverbs. The pedal then uses these microscopic vibrations to produce frequencies, overtones, and textures other reverb pedals can't.

But Gamechanger takes it a step further. They've designed LIGHT to use this same sensitivity to guide six unique effects not typically available in spring reverbs: feedback, tremolo, sweep (modulation), reflect (delay), optics (frequency and texture calibration), and harmonic (added harmonics and octave tracking). The signal mix section stacks any of these effects, putting them into conversation with one another, or allows the user to simply strike an attractive balance between LIGHT's newly developed optical signal and reverb as you know it.

Light pedal is the world’s first analog optical spring reverb system that uses infra-red optical sensors to harvest the full timbral and harmonic range of a spring reverb tank.

It takes a lot of energy to transfer an audio signal across the length of a vibrating spring. By the time the source audio signal reaches the spring tank’s output transducer, most of its nuanced harmonic content will be lost converted into mechanical energy.

This is why spring reverbs have such a particular sound, since what you end up hearing is largely the spring’s own resonant frequencies. The light pedal uses extremely sensitive optical pairs, placed at specific regions of the spring to detect very nuanced movements on the spring’s surface, as sound-waves travel through it.

This method opens up a much wider range of frequencies, harmonics, overtones and textures that are otherwise lost in the mechanical reverberation process. Using optical sensors also opens doors to some new effects types, such as optical reverb tremolo, optical reverb modulation and optical harmonic shimmer.

The result is a wide variety of analog reverb sounds ranging from classic to experimental to pure magic.

Much like a light wave itself, the potential is infinite. The only limitations are those you choose to place on it.
