"Aton“ was designed to to give you the sound and feeling of the legendary old tape echos ...blablabla... Let’s face it: "Aton“ is a quite Lo-Fi but warm and lush sounding Echo! It is the perfect choice for all ambient lovers who can’t hear these boring, hyper-digital sounding delay pedals anymore. Yes, "Aton“ is also a digital delay but it sounds - I hate to say that - truly "analog“.
The delay options are really standard: "Mix“, "Rate“ and "Feedback“ (yes, until a good controllable self-oscillation). To get a warm sounding wobble you can add some really nice modulations to the repeats. Control these via the "Speed“ and "Depth“ pots and transform "Aton“ in a Lo-Fi dream machine. The tone controls - "Hi“ and "Lo“ - make a difference by giving you the chance to transform „Aton“ from a dark and muddy sounding echo into a clear and well-behaved delay. That’s it... No! "Aton" also features a discreet Reverb to reach the ambient league ("Room“ pot). Great!
Finally „Aton“ is tapable by using the right footswitch. I've chosen some really high quality switches designed by Lehle.
