Earthquaker Afterneath V3 Pedal

EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath V3 Reverb/Delay Pedal Features:

  • Reverb pedal for electric guitar with true bypass switching
  • Uses swarms of short delays to create washes of ambience
  • Can reach self-oscillation at extreme settings for endless reverb effects
  • Maintains the clarity of your dry signal, even at extreme settings
  • All-analog dry signal path for tonal integrity
  • Relay-based soft-touch switch is silent onstage and underfoot
  • Flexi-switch allows for momentary effects
  • Tweaking the Drag control changes the pitch of self-oscillation, with 9 different Drag modes for big creative potential
  • Expression/voltage control input for external control over Drag parameter

Highly Musical Ambient Effects

The original Afterneath pedal broke new ground for delay and reverb effects, and with the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath V3 effects pedal, you have more creative control over these ambient effects than ever before. The evocative reverb algorithm is the same, using swarms of short delays to create unique washes of sonic texture. Now in its third generation, Afterneath V3 adds a voltage/expression input for external control, plus nine different modes that govern how the Drag control interacts with the reverb effect. Plug in an expression pedal, explore the different Drag modes, and discover an entirely new world of ambient effects with the EarthQuaker Devices Afterneath V3 effects pedal.

Multiple Drag modes produce surprisingly musical ambient effects

The way the delay and reverb interact within the Afterneath V3 effects pedal is rather esoteric, spending some time simply turning knobs and exploring different settings. When you set the Reflect and Length parameters to high levels, self-oscillation occurs, and you can use the Drag parameter to tweak the pitch of the oscillation. The Mode control directs the behavior of the Drag control, with nine different modes available.

Available Drag modes for manipulating self-oscillation:

  • Unquantized — allows a smooth pitch change over the range of the Drag control
  • Unquantized with Slew — similar to the Unquantized mode, but with a short lag behind knob/CV changes
  • Unquantized Volt/Octave — smooth, unquantized pitch changes, but scaled to align to a 1V/Oct curve for easier melodic manipulation
  • Chromatic Scale — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between intervals of the Chromatic scale
  • Major Scale — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between intervals of the Major scale
  • Minor Scale — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between intervals of the Minor scale
  • Pentatonic Scale — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between intervals of the Pentatonic scale
  • Octaves and Fifths — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between octaves and fifths of the original pitch
  • Octaves — quantized to 1V/Oct, adjusting Drag changes between octaves of the original pitch
