    To create a reverb experience as natural, beautiful, and immersive as BigSky required tremendous feats of sound engineering and artistic imagination. Using the fundamentals of acoustical science as their beacon, Strymon carefully studied and scientifically analyzed reverb technology from the past fifty years. They have faithfully captured the essence of these classic sounds, and forged ahead to dream up their vision of reverbs from the future.
    Feel the mechanical tension of the Spring reverbs. Hear the floating particles of the Cloud machine. Defy the laws of physics with the Nonlinear reverbs. Unleash the multi-head reverberations of the Magneto machine. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class reverb machines, each with simple yet powerful controls.
    Strymon knew they had to take reverb to a whole new level. With careful attention to detail, innovative analogue circuitry design, an insanely powerful SHARC processor, and the utilisation of top-shelf components, Strymon have developed a reverb pedal that fits on your pedal board yet has better audio quality than many rack reverb units. This fusion of science with art has just one goal. To provide you with the most musically inspirational reverb experiences possible.
    The Reverb Machines
    Hall
    Diffused reflections and slower-building density are the hallmarks of this beautiful and versatile reverb. The Concert size is well-balanced, spacious and warm, while the Arena size is huge, enveloping and booming.
    Plate
    The Plate machine is a rich, fast-building reverb that creates depth without early reflection cues to a specific environment. The Tone knob and Low End parameter are simple but powerful frequency shaping tools.
    Spring
    The standalone spring tank became a staple of surf and spaghetti-western music that developed in the '60s. The Spring machine allows for complete customisation from warm and mellow to splashy and dripping with its Tone and Mix Controls, Dwell parameter, and selectable number of springs.
    Swell
    The Swell machine brings in the reverb gradually behind the dry signal for subtle evolving textures, like having a volume pedal on the wet signal. Alternatively, you can choose to have the dry signal swelled into the reverb, for maximum ambience and atmosphere.
    Bloom
    In the '90s, more diffusion blocks were added to reverbs to 'smooth out' the sound. A side effect of this was the tendency of the reverbs to have a slowly building envelope that 'bloomed', resulting in big ambient reverbs that sit nicely with the dry signal even at high Mix levels. The Bloom reverb features a 'bloom generating' section that feeds into a traditional reverb 'tank', and adds a unique Feedback parameter that expands the possibilities exponentially.
    Cloud
    A gorgeously big, ambient reverb that draws from techniques developed in the late '70s. Using processing power not dreamed of in those days, the Cloud reverb machine obscures the distinction between reality and fantasy.
    Chorale
    A vocal choir accompanies your music. Choose vowel ranges and intensities to customise your choir as it sings in venues that vary with the Decay knob. As the Modulation is increased, the choir becomes alive with multitude of voices.
    Shimmer
    Two tunable voices add pitch-shifted tones to the reverberated signal, for resplendent, unearthly ambience. The voices are carefully created from the reverberated signal itself to generate maximum radiance and beauty. The Amount and Mode parameters allow for a range of shimmer effects from laid-back and subtle to full-blown majestic splendour.
    Magneto
    A new style of music emerged in the late '50s, featuring the guitar as the 'lead voice' enhanced by the reverberated wash of a multi-head echo. The Magneto machine sets up a multi-head echo with all heads on, while the PreDelay knob adds feedback. The Diffusion parameter adds a new dimension of ambience, smearing the response of the heads and blurring the line between delay and reverb.
    Nonlinear
    A variety of physics-defying reverb shapes are available for special effects and unique textures. Choose from three 'backwards' shapes (Swoosh, Reverse, and Ramp), or a Gate and more. Feedback control, Late Reverb, and Diffusion parameters allow for a vast array of time-warped possibilities.
    Reflections
    The Reflections machine is a psycho-acoustically accurate small-space reverb that allows you to move your amp anywhere in the room. The Reflections algorithm precisely calculates 250 reflections based on the source position within the chosen room shape. The psycho-acoustic modifiers adjust for human auditory perception to create unparalleled ambient-space realism to dry instrument or vocal tracks.
    Room
    The Reflections machine is a psycho-acoustically accurate small-space reverb that allows you to move your amp anywhere in the room. The Reflections algorithm precisely calculates 250 reflections based on the source position within the chosen room shape. The psycho-acoustic modifiers adjust for human auditory perception to create unparalleled ambient-space realism to dry instrument or vocal tracks.
