The EM-III from SolidGoldFX is a small, powerful, and versatile delay. It offers a wide range of delays from warm analog to precise modern tones.
The EM-III also sports delay modulation introduced via the Flutter control. Keep it at center position for no modulation. Dial it left for a slow and dreamy chorus-like modulation or right for a faster vibrato, letting you create lush oceanic movement, tape-style crinkles, eerie tension and beautiful dissonance.
The color knob allows you to engage both high-pass and low-pass filtering. Dead-center you have a pristine full-frequency digital delay. Dial it to the left and you cut the highs, creating warm, murky analog-esque repeats. Dial it to the right and you suck out the lows for crisp and bright tape-style repeats or super thin lo-fi delays.
The EM-III also brings interactive warp and glitch features to the tonal table by pressing and holding either Tap, Bypass or both at the same time. Hold Tap to increase the repeats until self-oscillation, creating a swelling wall of sound. Hold Bypass to replicate the sound of a tape motor on the fritz and a tape reel snapping, or hold both for glorious noise seances that will act as the perfect song/set closer.
Additional features include soft-touch, relay based, true bypass switching with the option of buffered trails, top jacks and up to a full second of delay time.
The EM-III is designed to inspire and evoke emotion. It can sound as pretty and cheerful or as dark and macabre as you wish. We invite you to tune up, plug in and immerse yourself in the EM-III experience.
