Endless Sleeper is an analog voiced cascading digital delay pedal. Its versatile design of having two independently controlled delay lines wired in a series circuit, allows for the creation of a wide spectrum of unique sounds: from precise, subtle echo textures to total synthetic dream simulation.
While keeping the dry signal pure/analog from input to output, the wet signal passes through two delay chips, each independently controlled with DELAY (Mix), D. TIME and FEEDBACK controls. The delay time’s reach from 30ms to 1200ms, the longer the time, the further the trails degrade into enticing shades of low fidelity.
Each delay path can be easily pushed into oscillation mode by either raising the FEEDBACK knob, or by holding down the OVERLOAD footswitch: momentarily maxing out both delay’s feedback controls for hands-free sonic bedlam.
Using the GLIDE and toggle switch, players can expressively modulate both delay chips through an internal LFO: creating lush chorus/vibrato on shorter delay setting, or psychotic waves of pitch shifting madness when you push the D.TIME.
The CRUSH control drives the delay’s output into an analog sample rate reducer, which crunches your signal down to emulate sounds similar to 8-Bit gaming consoles and microcomputers of the 1980’s.

Delay: A dry/wet mix control, which varies the mix between direct signal and the delayed signal. Fully clockwise is 100% wet; fully counter clockwise is 100% dry, or ‘unity’.
D. Time: Sets the delay time, from approximately 30ms to 1200ms. The longer the delay time the more lo-fi the signal becomes, resulting in noise, distortion and other strange artifacts.
Feedback: Controls the feedback to the delay, from slap-back on lower settings, to endless repeating and chaotic oscillations on higher settings.
Crush: Increase to reduce the sample rate of your output signal, from a soft sparkly chime on lower settings to a total 8-bit fuzz sound when maxed out.
Glide: Modulates the pitch of the delayed signal, the intensity of the glide also counteracts with how far the D. TIME is set for each delay, longer delay times a more intense glide modulation.
Toggle Switch: Switch between two modulation rates:
– Left is a slow ‘wow and flutter’ style of modulation.
– Right is a faster chorus/vibrato rate.
(These LFO rates can be changed with an internal trimmer inside the pedal)
Overload: When held down it momentary maxes out both FEEDBACK controls.
Bypass: True Bypass, effect ON/OFF.
Dark Switch: Turn switch ON to make DELAY I and/or DELAY II have a darker, more analog sounding echo. (By default, each delay is set with the switch OFF for a cleaner cascading effect).
Rate: Alters the speed of the GLIDE modulation LFO. (By default, this trimmer is set fully counter clockwise, or the slowest setting).
Feedback: Increase to loop DELAY II back into DELAY I. This is used to make endless ambient and noise loops, when this trimmer is increased your standard feedback controls on the face of the pedal become a lot more sensitive. (By default, this trimmer is set fully counter clockwise, or OFF).
