Presentation

The FUCIFIER is a distortion synthetiser made of dust and blood to bring you new sonic landscapes.

Everything in the FUCIFIER's signal chain - to be known the discrete mic preamplifier, the vintage germanium preamplifier, the analog filter, the EQ section and the output transformer - was made to support from delicios crunch to beside graves distortion, so as to satisfy the most exigents danmed ears.

Better than words, the following sound samples are a good preview of how lost souls can scream.

Features / Fonctions

* Branded real wood front panel, custom finished by hand

* Color coded, lighted acrylic, audio responsive gain meter knobs to see at a glance where your various gain stage levels are.

* Discrete mic preamp.

* Low noise, high quality balanced line input.

* Gain control of mic, instrument & dry mix gain in addition to control of overall input gain.

* True relay bypass of each effect section using lighted indicator ring metal push buttons.

* The Vintage Germanium Preamp section uses specially matched NOS vintage germanium transistors for added warmth and a great overdrive sound.

* The Analog Filter section features:
- variable freq & resonance
- LFO with variable amplitude and speed, an envelope detector and expression pedal control which can all be used separately or in conjunction to control filter frequency
- selectable high pass, band pass, or band pass + high pass filter response modes for the high freq distortion section
- separate low pass & high pass outputs on the back panel for processing each band separately with external gear.

* Dual Band Distortion allows control over:
- drive, distortion amount, distortion type (6 modes), clipping symmetry & low freq/high freq blend control to blend the two distortion sections in varying degrees.

* Inductor Based EQ with 5 bands of boost/cut: low, mid, high bands plus a low shelf & high shelf.

* Speaker output to plug a speaker cabinet into your Fucifier for use as an amp sim or even an amp!

* Wet/Dry signal blend control.

* Transformer coupled, discrete Class A output section.
