A Stranger In Our World

Her Light Will Change Us


“We are the music makers, And we are the dreamers of dreams…” – Arthur O’Shaughnessy (1873)

Angelo Mazzocco

DSP Engineer/VP

I grew up idolizing how the 90s guitar giants used their unobtainable big box pitch shifters, the Hedra branches out from there with all new mind bending sounds and capabilities.

Innocence in Spirit

Powerful in Execution


Plug in to Hedra to expand your melody palette and unfold your landscape. 3 voices, in rhythm combine with your original voice to create angelic harmonies. Each voice can be delayed and fed back in 4 intricate matrices for either predictable or unpredictable results.  Explore endless creative avenues with pitch corrective locking and glide modes, either smooth or hard stepped. Add sonic unease and texture by micro tuning each voice.

Mix


Adjusts the balance between Dry and Wet signals
Alt Function: Delay Feedback Controls delay feedback.
Series delay modes: Pitch 3 sets the feedback loop.
Dual delay modes: Pitch 1 and 3 both add to the feedback loop

Pitch 2


Pitch 2 : Sets interval for the second pitch shifted
voice
Alt Function: Time Division 2 Sets a fraction of the main tempo for second pitch shifted voice

Pitch 3


Pitch 3: Sets interval for the third pitch shifted voice
Alt Function: Time Division 3 Sets a fraction of the main tempo for third pitch shifted voice

Hold to access Alt Functions


Alt Functions are only accessible when this button is held

Press to Select Mode


(Press to Select Mode)
Dual: Splits the delay into 2 short delays with a stereo output
Dual + Series: the same 2 short delays as Dual mode, now with cross-feedback
Series: One long series delay with standard feedback
Pitch Feedback: One long series delay
with the pitch shifters in the feedback loop

Tap


Tap: Sets the main tempo/delay time. Total available time for the two Series delay modes = 520 msec. For the Two Dual delay modes = 260 msec
Alt Function: Half Speed Changes the Filter Envelope from Triggered Envelope to Envelope Follower
Hold Tap: Momentarily enable an automatic volume swell based on your pick attack

Bypass


Bypass: Disables processing and passes the input thru to the output
Alt Function: Pitch Control Smoothing Enables smoothing of the Pitch knobs. Turn the smoothing off to hard step through the intervals

Pitch 1
