how do set specific times of delay?with usb?
I was not blown away.
I wouldn't say it's really a competitor for the RKM.. After all the RKM is modeled after the old BBD delays, and it's signal path is fully analog. The RKM and the Volante together, with a midi controller, would be delay heaven IMO...
You can just use the tap tempo switch like everyone else
Or you could do it like the olden days and turn the knob by hand.
Those that want super-precise BPM adjustments will probably already be using MIDI and can do it that way, but part of the joy of tape and older vintage delays is that they don’t need to be perfectly in-sync to sound wonderful.
Seems to be a reasonable price for a complex delay. I shall get one. I like the focus on old style delay sounds.
The first time I watched a video demoing the Boonar, I knew I had to own it.
Then came the Echosex 2º T7E, and I started leaning towards it.
Then came all the issues regarding its release and the preorders that had already been made.
Anyway, now there is the Volante, with a very attractive price and being offered by what seems to be a well-established and very reliable company.
As much as I love my ML2, the Volante fits perfectly its spot on my board. I wouldn't have to move anything else on my board in order to make room for the Volante.
The official Strymon dealer around here has always asked very reasonable prices - I've bought a Zuma from them. If it's the case with the Volante, I'm probably getting one this year.
444€ in Thomann, currently unknown availability
What a horrid colour.
Volante, whoa oh.
Cantare, whoa oh oh.
Rather expensive imho.... Thats 509,11$.... 399$ = 347,97€.
It’s approx the same as the Echosystem, and 55% more than DD-500 and Nemesis here in Norway.
399€ would be more appropriate maybe, considering that they sell the El Cap for 309€ and the Timeline for 489€
Yes, probably. Shipping costs, and of course VAT, will add a good chunk. But still.
I've already got an El Cap that I really love and I wouldn't say I'm a tape fanatic hankering for the sounds of the old machines the way some folks are (which is totally cool,) but I did pre-order yesterday - never done that before. The features they included in this are what I've been looking for in a delay for a long time. Been looking at the Grand Canyon as well since I hear it can do a lot of the funky stuff my old Hazarai did.
Oh, and I like the color a lot.
399$ = 347,97€
347.97€ + 19% VAT = 414.08€
Plus shipping from the States and other costs.
Just about works out.
I dont know man. I used to have the same attitude about analog vs digital. Trust me, I've always been the first to prefer analog (see my avatar) but when I tried the mxr Echoplex it changed my mind. I thought it sounded better than any of the maxon ad series that I've tried and many others.
I'm just saying to give digital a chance if that's the only reason you're not trying it. It really opens a world of possibilities. It has analog dry-through which is a huge plus.
Has Strymon mentioned or demonstrated a hold/self-oscillation switch yet?
$399... this is going to sell like hotcakes
This sounds like it will also be useful for Frippian applications
As someone else pointed out, it’s $40 more than the Belle Epoch Deluxe with more features. What’s weird is that Strymon requires Sweetwater charge shipping too, so with tax and everything it was nearly $450. Time to go through my pedals and parts drawer and sell some stuff!
I've been gassing for the Boonar, then the T7E came along... and now I'm glad I bought neither... the Volante seems to be everything I could have hoped for.
Yes, footswitch on the left.
I think you mean Deco. The Volante's studio mode is a reel-to-reel emulation like the Deco, while the DIG is a combination of digital rack emulations.
