Capable of moody, menacing offerings, Shadow Winds achieves its subversive goals with a startlingly simple three-knob control set and a three-position toggle for selecting its various programs.
The toggle offers three options via L-R switch labeled I, II and III. The programs can be described thusly:
- I / Left - Alternating 3rds up and down
- II / Middle - Alternating 3rd down with tremolo
- III / Right - Alternating tri-tones up and down with vibrato
The Time knob controls the delay/modulation rate; the Replicate knob controls feedback and overall intensity; and the pedal’s secret weapon is its aptly-named Invoke knob. The Invoke function introduces various stages of modulation into each of the programs, climaxing after reaching the 12 o'clock position.
-Controls include knobs for Replicate, Time, and Invoke, plus a switch for three delay programs
