Cimmerian Caves Dual Echo/Vibrato/Chorus + Fuzz Demo 2
Published on Sep 9, 2016 Artificial Noise
"Cimmerian Caves, the newest product from Artificial Noise, is a dual Echo/Vibrato/Chorus effects unit with Fuzz Distortion.
Dark, warbly and tape-like. Dense modulating echo's bouncing from ear to ear. Thick, wooly tube-like distortion. Most definitely NOT a sterile clean delay, but warm and full of character.
When the poet Homer talked of Cimmeria, he called it the land of fog and darkness at the edge of Hades. Artificial Noise has taken those words as inspiration for the Cimmerian Cave effects unit.
In the unit are two Echo "Blocks" that can be either Echo/Delay (approx. 925ms max delay time), Vibrato, Chorus or some combination of above. Each block can run in parallel and panned Left to Right, making for great Stereophonic effects, or they can be run in series (Echo 1 into Echo 2). Along with the two effects blocks there is also a Fuzz effect, which runs through both blocks. Cimmerian Caves is a hybrid of analog and digital circuitry, utilizing both worlds for maximum effect.
Cimmerian Caves works great with synthesizers or any line level instrument. And yes, it also works great with guitar and bass too!
No audio processing (effects, eq, compression, etc) was used in the video except Cimmerian Caves.
Cimmerian Caves is available for purchase at Artificial Noise:
