The Expanse

A harmonic tremolo pedal you can keep on Earth, or get lost in space

The Expanse by MAS Effects

This harmonic tremolo gives you a huge range of tonal possibilities. It can be used as a standalone tremolo, optionally with with some layered on reverb, or you can dial in some complex textured delays and feedback to create dreamy soundscapes. And of course you have everything inbetween.

This isn't a pedal you can simply set all the knobs to noon and start jamming, so be sure to check out the favorite settings below.

Controls

Expression jacks
Separate jacks let you control the WIDTH or VELOCITY controls with any expression pedal, including the MAS Effects Desktop Expression Pedal.
Volume
Overall level of the pedal.
Blend
Mixes from completely dry (clean) signal to completely wet (tremolo). Do not underestimate this control, especially for typical day-to-day playing. A clockwise blend may make sense for rich ambient music, but don't leave it cranked-up all the time.
Outer Space
When off the EXPANSE knob gives you a deep reverb with a lot of ambience. Turning it on introduces a delay that gives you a modulated echo.
Warp
3-way toggle changes the type of filters used, altering the depth of its sound.
Width
Alters the sweeping range of the effect (when OUTER SPACE is OFF), or the Distance between feedback (when OUTER SPACE is ON).
Velocity
Alters the speend of the tremolo.
Expanse
Controls how much spacey ambience is added to the effect.
Vast Expanse foot switch
Holding this pushes the EXPANSE control beyond its limits, letting you accentuate parts, do swells, and more. The combination of the EXPANSE and EXPANSE Ceiling knobs will determine how far out this goes.
Max Vast
(Unlabeled upper-right knob) This controls how far out the VAST EXPANSE foot switch will take your sounds when you hold it down. It is highly interactive with the EXPANSE knob. When EXPANSE is set low, this needs to be turned further to have a dramatic effect, and when EXPANSE is cranked up, this will have a much greater impact.
Black hole foot switch
Switch between true bypass and engaged.
