Used Earthquaker Grand Orbiter


Comprehensive control over your phasing effects

Grand Orbiter’s circuitry is based around the operational transconductance amplifier, an ultra-stable device considered in electronic engineering circles to be an ideal transistor. EarthQuaker built the circuit with a smart set of controls that gives you the ability to craft and fine-tune the exact effect you’re after. The Rate control adjusts the speed of the LFO (the flashing LED gives you a visual indicator, even with the effect bypassed). The Depth control blends the wet signal in with the dry, effectively controlling the intensity of the effect. Grand Orbiter’s Sweep control sets the peak frequency of the phased signal: full clockwise, the sweep is vibrant and intense; turning the dial counterclockwise gives you a darker, more laid-back sound. The Resonance knob serves up a broad regeneration palette; at higher settings, it delivers a more resonant tone. The Phase/Vibrato switch even lets you use Grand Orbiter as a true-pitch vibrato. In Vibrato mode, the dry signal is killed, and the Depth control functions as a volume control.
