The Sea Machine is a chorus pedal with ultimate control over parameters rarely, if ever, seen in a chorus before. A hybrid of digital and analog circuitry with a slightly extended delay time allows it to really stand out and shimmer. Subtle warble, classic leslie, sea sick pitch bends, strangled aliens, stunted arpeggiations… there is something for everyone in the Sea Machine, even people who hate chorus. Designed to work well following fuzz, distortion or overdrive without getting muddy, loss of volume or breaking up (the Sea Machine has excellent headroom at both 9 & 12 volts). When engaged, the transparent buffer leaves the all analog dry signal unaltered and crystal clear. It can be powered from 9-12v DC, higher voltage yields a more intense modulation, slightly longer delay time with more chime and dimension. The Sea Machine is true bypass and made by human hands with the highest quality parts in lovely Akron, Ohio.

Measures

4.7″ x 3.7″ x 2.25″ with controls

Controls

Rate: Controls the peed of the LFO
Shape: From soft triangle through hard square wave
Dimension: Adds a slight slap-back at low levels, reverb-like ambiance at mid levels and an echo-resonance at max
Intensity: Controls how much the LFO modulates the delay time
Animate: Adjusts how far the pitch shifted signal swings, lower levels equals a tighter and more focused shift à la traditional chorus. As you increase the control a more wild and animated pitch shift begins to emerge.
Depth: Determines how much modulated signal is blended in with the dry signal.

Power

Any standard regulated 9-12 volt power supply with a negative center 2.1mm barrel. Do not run at higher voltages! Does not use batteries.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
