Description & Specs

Alexander Pedals Quadrant Audio Mirror 

From Alexander Pedals: It's here! The Quadrant Audio Mirror, the ultimate compact delay from Alexander Pedals.  What began as the History Lesson V3 slowly morphed into this NEO pedal that became too powerful and too expansive to be constricted as just a 3rd version title.  The Quadrant includes the familiar tape (MAG), analog (BBD) and digital (DIGI) modes while adding a "LOFI" mode to the mix! All knobs on the Quadrant now have secondary functions that can tweak each mode to perfection.  Most of these new control additions are pretty self explanatory but the "Glide" control is something special as it controls how the device reacts to tempo changes.  The user can now select whether they want the pitch to react to these changes or not. Of course, the Quadrant boasts all of the standard NEO platform features like 4 internal presets, 16 via more Midi, EXP control over all parameters for "morphing" between two fully controllable settings, USB control, and a lot more.

Scroll down for specs and additional information on the pedal's myriad of technical functions. 

Brand: Alexander Pedals
Model: Quadrant Audio Mirror
Type: Delay
Outputs: 1 1/4"
Inputs: 1 1/4", 1 1/4" MIDI/EXP
MIDI/EXP: 

  • Expression Pedal: Set the expression pedal to the heel down position, then adjust the knobs to your preferred setting. Sweep the pedal to the toe position and set the knobs to a different setting. Now the Quadrant will allow you to seamlessly morph between the two settings!
  • Foot Switch: The Neo Footswitch (sold separately) allows for preset select, tap tempo, or ramp morph control - all with LED indication. The Quadrant will also work with a standard tap tempo footswitch.
  • MIDI: The Neo Series pedals can connect to a compatible MIDI controller to control all of the pedal functions plus access 12 extra presets, for a total of 16. The USB port may also be used as a MIDI interface to your computer or mobile device.

True Bypass: Buffered Bypass with Soft-touch Footswitch
Controls: Controls in parentheses () are accessed by holding down the Select button and turning the indicated knob.

  • Rate: Controls the delay time from 0-915ms. If Glide is disabled, the time will adjust seamlessly. If Glide is enabled, the time will pitch-shift and get all "rubberbandy" (technical term.)
  • (Tone): Controls the tone of the delay engine. Controls the grunge and grit of the Lo-Fi mode.
  • Feedback: Controls the repeat level of the delay. The BBD mode will go into infinite / runaway feedback.
  • (Glide): Controls the delay time change method. If Glide is set to less than 12 o'clock, the delay time will adjust seamlessly when tapped or adjusted with the Time knob. If Glide is set to greater than 12 o'clock, the delay time will pitch shift when adjusted.
  • Mix: Controls the blend between the dry and delay signal. Equal mix is at 12 o'clock.
  • (Level): Controls the overall output level of the pedal, from -20dB to +10dB. Unity gain is near 1 o'clock.
  • Mod: Adjusts the depth of the delay modulation.
  • (Rate): Adjusts the rate of the delay modulation.
Modes: 
  • MAG - Magnetic tape echo, warm and rich. The MAG mode captures the frequency response of the tape heads and preamp of a vintage tape delay. The Mod knob controls the "wow" or "flutter" of the tape. Each delay repeat loses both treble and bass, for a warm and compressed sound. The Tone knob controls the age of the tape, making the echo brighter or darker.
  • BBD - Analog delay, murky and wet. The BBD mode is based on a classic solid-state analog echo. This mode is capable of infinite repeats for the classic analog delay "spaceship" tone. The Mod knob adds analog chorus or vibrato. The Tone knob controls the analog delay filter.
  • DIG - Digital delay, bright and present. The DIG mode captures the sheen and clarity of the early digital delays. Each repeat sounds just like what you put in, with the classic digital "clang" you will either love or hate. The Mod knob adds wide-ranging pitch modulation, be careful! The Tone control sweeps the delay between low-pass and highpass filtering for a wide range of delay tones.
  • LOFI - How can we put this? This mode sounds terrible. Don't use it. It's all dirty and grungy and sounds like you're playing through a payphone. The Tone knob might make things a little bit cleaner, but it's never gonna be hi-fi.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
