Morph Across The SpaceTime Continuum With Cosmisis

PIGTRONIX wrote: years in the making and the first of its kind, Cosmosis is a stereo, high-fidelity ambient reverb that allows musicians to tailer three original spaces – Theater, Temple, and Cosmos – as well as manipulate them in real time.

In addition to controls for the size of the reverb, wet/dry blend and filtering, Cosmosis features a unique Morph function that allows musicians to alter their reverb settings in real time by pressing the left footswitch. The three space algorithms found inside Cosmosis are all-original and truly unique.

Theater puts the play in a variable room that ranges from cozy to highly reflective using multiple parallel short reverberators. Temple occupies a dramatic, large indoor space by implementing numerous long reflections in both parallel and series. And Cosmos created an enormous spectrum of heavenly reverb derived from the harmonic content its fed.

The Morph feature found in Cosmosis provides a simple way for players to trigger a gradual change from various reverb parameters over a specified amount of time set by the accompanying Morph Rate knob. Players can set both “red” and “green” values on their Tone, Blend, and Size knobs, then engage the Morph foot switch to oscillate between the two reverbs at their desired rate.

Any combination of knobs can be assigned to morph. Create elegant morphs for subtle movement or sweeping, cinematic morphs for dramatic sound design effects. Save up to four custom reverb presets, including morphing. Cosmos runs on a standard 9VDC power.


Size: Sets the size of the reverb space.

Blend: Sets that balance between wet (reverb) and dry (clean signal)

Tone: Clockwise from noon, this control applies a high-pass filter, making the reverb sound brighter. Counter-clockwise from noon, this control applies a low-pass filter, making the reverb sound darker.

Morph Rate: Sets the time it takes for parameters to change between “red” and “green” values when the Morph foot switch is engaged.

Morph: Enable morphing for any combination of the 4 on-board knobs. Push to toggle through knobs, press and hold to select. Press and hold again to deselect. 

Preset Select: Push to toggle through 4 pre-loaded presets, press and hold to select. To save a custom preset after making changes, press and hold. Presets can also be toggled and selected using only footswitches (see manual).

Space Select: Push to toggle through 3 available reverb spaces

Three Evocative Spaces

The three unique space algorithms found inside of Cosmosis are entirely original and comprise a combination of primary source impulse responses, imagined reflections, and inspired mathematics. 

Theatre is a vintage-inspired small room sound ranging form cozy to reflective; Temple is a rich and flowing larger space featuring long reflections in both parallel and series; and Cosmos makes use of divine inspiration to create an enormous spectrum of harmonically-informed reverb.

Kill the Size knob in any space to conjure a ghostly, full-wet “reverse” reverb effect.

The Cosmosis is priced at $219.00 

PIGTRONIX Introduces Gloamer

PIGTRONICS introduces Gloamer, an all-analog, polyphonic amplitude synthesizer that alters the attack and decay time of any sound source without sacrificing the fidelity of the original tone. Its attack function provides a pick-triggered volume swell: a cinematic “slow gear” effect that is smooth and controllable with variable timing from extremely fast to very slow.

The volume swell cycle can be reset at any moment by muting, allowing players to craft bowed string-like lines and chords with ease. Gloamer also features a powerful optical compressor that can add subtle punch or extreme sustain, helping to maintain a smooth volume swell effect even with very long attack times.

A Volume knob controls loudness at the peak of the attack cycle, while a master Blend control allows players to layer an uncompressed clean sound in with the volume swell effect. Additionally, when activated, the Decay function causes notes to fade out once the attack cycle is complete.

When the Decay cycle is completed, an auto-reset function causes the attack to begin again immediately, as long as there is audio input. This allows you to create a wide range of undulating, asymmetrical tremolos at slower settings as well as pulsating stutter effects when using faster attack and decay times.


Volume: Sets the master output volume of the effect when engaged.

Compression: Determines the balance of clean and compressed signal.

Blend: Determines the balance of clean signal and effect.

Attack: Determines the duration of time it takes for a note to swell from silent to full volume.

Decay: Determines the duration of time it takes for a note to fade out from full volume to silence

Sensitivity: Determines how much input signal is needed to reset the attack and decay cycle.

Ready (LED): Signals when the pedal is armed and ready to begin the attack and/or decay cycle.


Gloamer was designed to allow players to change the nature of their attack and decay while maintaining pristine, hi-fidelity audio. Easily swell blooming single note lines or full, lush chords and become the string section you’ve always wanted to hire but can’t afford.
