Artificial Noise Cimmerian Caves Effects Unit Inspired by Homer

No, not that Homer! Think famous Greek poet. Not famous Simpsons cartoon character. Either way, this new effect unit from Artificial Noise looks, and sounds, the part as the video below shows.  

Artificial Noise have released a new desktop hardware effects unit and it's caught our attention. Can be easily used with any synth or line-in instrument like an electric guitar, and it will take you through "the fog and darkness."

Check ou the video of Cimmerian Caves in action and read what Artificial Noise have to say about their new effects unit.

Cimmerian Caves, the newest product from Artificial Noise, is a dual Echo/Vibrato/Chorus effects unit with Fuzz Distortion.

Dark, warbly and tape-like. Dense modulating echo's bouncing from ear to ear. Thick, wooly tube-like distortion. Definitely NOT a sterile clean delay, but warm and full of character. When the poet Homer talked of Cimmeria, he called it the land of fog and darkness at the edge of Hades. Artificial Noise has taken those words as inspiration for the Cimmerian Cave effects unit.

In the unit are two Echo “Blocks” that can be either Echo/Delay (approx. 925ms max delay time), Vibrato, Chorus or some combination of the above. Each block can run in parallel and panned Left to Right, making for great Stereophonic effects, or they can be run in series (Echo 1 into Echo 2). Along with the two effects blocks there is also a Fuzz effect, which runs through both blocks. Highly tweakable with 17 knobs and 3 switches. Cimmerian Caves is a hybrid of analog and digital circuitry, utilizing both worlds for maximum effect.

Cimmerian Caves works great with synthesizers or any line level instrument. And yes, it DOES work great with guitar and bass as well.
