We give you the two most quintessential effects that yield unruly amounts of power and influence to an instrumentalist: reverb and distortion. They have been harnessed and woven together for an eternity of ethereal power with The Melee: Wall of Noise. The Melee unapologetically uses a joystick to meld reverb and distortion into one massive blaze of sound. With the flip of the order switch, run the distortion into the reverb or reverb into distortion; signal chain is your call now. For the explorer, the Melee can run one of three different reverb programs Ambient, Octave, and Reverse.

In a less is more approach, we’ve intentionally decided on controls that are fun to use and will inspire a wealth of creative output. Use the joystick to control the amount of distortion by moving it up and down. Moving the joystick left and right will adjust your reverb mix. The tone and decay toggles have low, medium, and high settings. Modulation can be added to the wet signal by holding down the bypass switch and moving the decay toggle. The left position is no modulation, the middle is a slight modulation, and the right is a high modulation.

ALGORITHMS

The Melee is equipped with three different reverb programs, which can be changed by simultaneously pressing the bypass and sustain stomp switches. Experiment with the order toggle switch to hear how differently these all react in front and after the distortion!

  • Ambient Reverb (Pink LED) - Huge reverb capable of massive trails and engulfing your chords into an angry wash of sound. Great for soaring melodic lines or shoegaze-driven chord progressions.
  • Octave Down Reverb (Yellow LED) - Similar to the Dark mode in the Slö, you’ll find an eerie lower octave hovering in the reverb trail for a nice and dark atmospheric touch.
  • Reverse Reverb with Feedback (Blue LED) - Add reversed reverb trails back into your signal, create gentle melodies or push into reverse feedback overload. Big, slow, and sad chords love to hang out here.

MOMENTARY

Press and hold the sustain switch to ramp up the reverb trails. Release and the trails will ramp back down to where the decay switch is currently set. The sustain switch can also latch in all three programs. Press and release the Sustain switch to capture and sustain the current reverb decay for long pad-like sounds in your wet mix. Press again to release the latch, and the reverb trail will taper off based on the position of the decay knob.

FEATURES

  • The Melee comes coated in a glossy neon pink enclosure with white, yellow, and green inks with art by David Hüttner.
  • The die-cast enclosure’s exact size is 3.62” x 4.79” x 3.14” (including joystick height).
  • Three bypass modes, DSP, DSP+True, True Bypass
  • Power requirements are 9VDC, center negative (200mA minimum).
  • The use of an isolated power supply is recommended for powering all Walrus Audio Pedals.
  • Daisy chain power supplies are not recommended.

Specification

  • High-Gain Distortion and Reverb combo
  • Controls: Vol, Tone, Decay, D>R|R>D (determines order of effects), Joystick (distortion level + reverb mix), bypass, sustain switch
  • Joystick control to meld reverb and distortion and inspire a wealth of creative output
  • Joystick controls reverb mix (x-axis) and distortion level (y-axis)
  • Switch signal-chain-order of distortion- and reverb-effect
  • D>R (distortion into reverb) or R>D (reverb into distortion)
  • D>R mode: traditional set up. Notes and chords remain their clarity
  • R>D mode: notes and chords are muddied to create a wall of sound
  • 3 different reverb programs: Ambient, Octave and Reverse
  • Ambient Reverb: Huge reverb with massive trails
  • Octave Reverb: Lower octave on reverb trail. Like “Dark” mode on Walrus Audio Slö.
  • Reverse Reverb with Feedback: Add reversed reverb trails or push into reverse feedback overload.
  • Tone 3-way-toggle-switch sets the tone of reverb and distortion: normal, dark, bright
  • Decay 3-way-toggle-switch sets time of the reverb: minimum, medium, maximum
  • Set modulation via secondary control (decay 3-way-switch): none, slight (33RPM), high (45RPM)
  • Use momentary bypass to create a moment of texture
  • Sustain switch ramps up reverb trail to maximum or latches current reverb decay
  • 3 bypass modes: DSP bypass, DSP+ true bypass, true bypass
  • 9-volt DC, Center Negative, 200mA minimum
  • Power Supply not included
  • Designed and assembled in the USA
