If you"ve been using a traditional volume pedal to sweep the volume of your guitar or other instrument and are looking to step up to greater control and tonal transparency, then look no further than the Volcano. Plug the Volcano between your instrument and amp or in the effect loop of your amp and attach either an expression pedal or MIDI footcontroller (or both) to sweep the gain of your instrument just like a volume pedal but with much greater clarity, precision, and control. Under MIDI control you can select different sweep ranges for the expression pedal or MIDI pedal or jump directly to a specific gain. The Volcano can boost your instrument level by up to 18dB, offers cool CC switch (instant access) features such as mute, bypass, boost by addition and MIDI programs that include different sweep gains, custom sweep curves, increment/decrement of fixed or swept gains and much more. Even select a preset to output CC messages over different channels in response to the expression pedal movement.
Unlike all other volume effects, the Volcano does not use the common VCA (voltage controlled amp). Instead it rapidly switches in different resistors to change the gain. This precision method of gain control is the cleanest, most transparent method possible. With a resolution of 1/3dB, a range of 90dB, and a differential internal signal path, the sound and control is simply remarkable. There is no other volume effect with this kind of quality. The Volcano was in development for over a year because of the demands of the design, but the result was well worth the effort and truly meets the high standards of Sound Sculpture quality.
