Strymon Introduced Conduit MIDI Hub



Strymon introduced Conduit, a premium, easily configurable, ultra-reliable MIDI interface that will work with just about any quarter-inch MIDI equipped effects pedals you have. It also offers the best USB computer connection available for any TRS MIDI pedal.

Smart MIDI Control Distribution

Each of Conduit’s four bi-directional TRS jacks are independently configurable to work with most quarter-inch MIDI equipped pedals. Built-in grounding isolation ensures the quiet operation you expect from Strymon. And for pedals that only need to receive MIDI, Dual Mode allows you to connect two pedals to a single TRS output using an optional TRS splitter cable.

USB MIDI Interface For Your Pedals

Conduit is designed to be a rock solid USB MIDI interface between your computer and your pedals. Send MIDI control change messages from a sequencer for perfectly synced pedal parameter changes. Automate pedal preset changes, load and save presets, or send SYSEX messages – all from your computer.

Easy to Set Up. Easy to Use. Easy to Plug In and Go.

Out of the box, Conduit’s 1/4” TRS MIDI jacks are configured to work with Strymon pedals – just plug and go! Other configurations are easily selectable with no DIP switches, no custom cables, and no screwdriver required. Need more TRS MIDI outputs? Just link another Conduit!

Strymon Introduces Magneto “Interstellar Space Machine”



Strymon introduced the Magneto four head d’tape echo. It is described at the “Interstellar Space Machine”. With Magneto, you can create expansive soundscapes and evolving, otherworldly tones.

Packed with powerful features while maintaining intuitive playability, Magneto is a stereo multi-head tape delay that also functions as a looper, phrase sampler, vintage spring reverb unit, phase-aligned clock multiplier, chaotic oscillator, zero latency sub-oscillator and more, with extensive CV I/O.

Use Magneto to turn simple monophonic signals into complex orchestrations. Create new oscillator tones using self-oscillation. Add rich stereo dimension to your sound, and enjoy the inherent warmth and sweet, subtle distortion characteristics of magnetic tape. Magneto transforms even the smallest rack into a fully expressive, immersive instrument.

Every function, control, gain stage, and signal path component in Magneto works together to respond musically and smoothly, even during the wildest live modular improvisations. All this is combined with a luxurious spring reverb to take the sound of your modular setup to a new level, and your sonic explorations into far-out territories.

Features include:

  • Tape-voiced delay with four playback heads and one record head
  • Processor-intense d’Tape algorithm delivers meticulously nuanced recreations of vintage tape echo systems
  • Three operational modes: Echo, Sound On Sound Looper, Phrase Sampler
  • Varispeed algorithm with dynamic machine mechanics, 8:1 speed range
  • Input record level for clean reproduction to warm, fat saturation
  • Self-oscillating for tone regeneration
  • Independent Spring Reverb
