About The Dust Collector

The first of the Arkive_Effects series, The Dust Collector brings together five curated analog effects designed for sonic experimentation. It contains 2 VC LFOs, 2 tape saturations, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. However, this is not your average multi-effect box, as each module has been analysed and tweaked to support your creative process.

On the 14/15 November Finegear will demo The Dust Collector at Soundmit 2020 virtual edition.
