KOMA Elektronik Intros Two Analog Effects Pedals

KOMA Elektronik has released two new analog effects pedals – the BD101 Analog Gate/Delay and the FT201 Analog Vactrol State Variable Filter/10 Step Sequencer. Both pedals come with a 10 socket CV / audio patch bay and an on-board infrared motion controller able to control all CV features on the pedals.

BD101 – Analog Gate / Delay

The BD101 Analog Gate / Delay, demo’d above, is an voltage controlled analog delay with a fully adjustable wide frequency range gate. The BD101 is capable of providing bit crushing effects, resonant frequencies, fast shifts between heavy delayed and cranked up sounds and super short pulses.

With the on-board infrared expression controller,you can override / control all the front panel controls by moving your hands or feet over it. The BD101 can be used as a standalone pedal, but can also be used in combination with other KOMA Elektronik pedals and, for instance, a (modular) synthesizer through the 10-socket audio and CV patch bay. The on board infrared expression controller can also be used as a standalone feature.

The CV and audio patch bay allows control of Gate Speed, Gate Amount, Delay Time, Delay Feedback and gives the possibility to synchronize the pedal with an external clock signal. It also gives the possibility to make an external effects loop which allows the user to send out the processed feedback signal, run it through other effects and feed it back into the pedal.

Additional features include:

  • Slide controls for Input Gain and Delay Blend for more control while playing
  • On board infrared expression controller, can be used as a standalone CV feature
  • CV control for Gate Speed, Gate Amount, Delay Time and Delay Feedback
  • CV input for External Clock signals and synchronization with other KOMA Elektronik pedals
  • CV attenuators on the back of the pedal to fine-tune the CV inputs
  • Send/Return Insert for external processing of BBD Feedback signals
  • A wide frequency range Gate / Amplitude Modulation; choose between High, Mid and Low
  • Multiple Gate shapes; Ramp, Pulse and Sawtooth.
The BD101 is available now for 329,00 EUR incl. 19% VAT (VAT only for EU countries).

FT201 – Analog Vactrol State Variable Filter / 10 Step Sequencer

The FT201 Analog Filter / 10-Step Sequencer is a voltage controlled vactrol state variable filter, combined with a 10-step sequencer. The FT201 is capable of providing ultra low and high frequency filter effects which are controllable with the on board infrared expression controller, which lets you create filter sweeps by moving your feet or hands over the pedal.

The FT201 has 3 different filter outputs: bandpass, low pass and high pass, which all work simultaneously. The cutoff frequency range is very large, between 20 Hz and 20 kHz and because of the vactrols used the sound quality is superb. The 10 Step Sequencer runs through the selected amount of steps (2 – 10 steps) and adds the control voltage to the value set by the Cutoff knob, thus modulating the cutoff frequency in every step.

Just like the BD101, the FT201 can be used as a stand alone pedal, linked to other KOMA Elektronik effect pedals or as a controller for a (modular) synthesizer or other CV receptive electronic instruments. The CV and audio patch bay allows control of the Resonance, Sequencer Reset, Cutoff and gives the user the possibility to synchronize the pedal with an external clock signal.

Additional features include:

  • Three filter outputs; Bandpass, Low pass and High pass, which all work simultaneously
  • Slide controls for Input Gain and Resonance for more control while playing
  • On board infrared expression controller, can be used as a standalone CV feature
  • CV control for Resonance, Sequencer Reset, Cutoff
  • CV input for External Clock signals and synchronization with other KOMA Elektronik pedals
  • CV attenuators on the back of the pedal to fine-tune the CV inputs

The FT201 is available now for 349,00 EUR incl. 19% VAT (VAT only for EU countries).
