The Time Warp by Crucial Audio combines the unique (tape-like) sound quality, and real-time parameter control benefits of an Analog Delay with the warm and brilliant sound fidelity from a high voltage/low noise Class A vacuum tube interface circuit. The Time Warp's Modulation feature introduces an extremely flexible effect capable of delivering pure Analog Chorus, Ring Modulation, Organ Simulator, Pitch Sequencer and Harmonizer. This effect has been described as "Extremely Flexible & Organic Sounding."
The Time Warp offers switch-able Modulation with Depth & Rate controls, and features extremely low switching noise. The heavy duty construction will endure the toughest of touring environments. Crucial Audio's PC Board Assemblies are manufactured by UL approved facilities. The anodized extruded aluminum chassis are custom designed by Crucial Audio, and also manufactured in the USA. The Time Warp is loaded with two selected vacuum tubes, and can accept a wide variety of 9-pin twin triodes (such as 12AX7's, please refer to the tube chart in the product manual). No Op-Amps are used in the audio signal path, thus the signal maintains its warm and natural harmonic qualities. The Vacuum Tube Analog Delay is a lower maintenance and sturdier alternative to the magnetic tape echoes, and offers a warmer tone than the digital delays and modelers. The Time Warp is less thain 1/2 the price of currently produced tape echoes & offers Modulation!
