EarthQuaker Devices Spatial Delivery V2 Envelope Filter Pedal

The Spatial Delivery V2 delivers three modes of voltage-controlled envelope filters, which can be cross-faded for a range of sweeping auto-wah-style effects.
Saddle up on the EarthQuaker Devices Spatial Delivery V2 Envelope Filter Pedal with Sample & Hold! The Spatial Delivery is a voltage-controlled envelope filter that'll help you explore the final frontier of funk while reinforcing your secret love affair with auto-wah. And it does Sample & Hold. Wild, right?

Up and Down Modes: Get super precise touch-sensitive tone sweeps with a variety of filter types. In both modes, the Spatial Delivery's controls for "Range," "Resonance," and "Filter" interact to deliver anything from subtle phaser-like modulation, to whistly resonant peaks. The "Range" control adjusts the sensitivity of the envelope, dialing in the overall touch-responsiveness to pick attack. "Resonance" adjusts the feedback of the filter. Counter-clockwise settings yield a rounded, subdued tone, while clockwise settings increase the body and ring of the filter voice, resulting in a sharp, peaky tone. The "Filter" control crossfades between Low-Pass, Band-Pass, and High-Pass filters, so only the good bits of your signal get freaky funkified.

Sample & Hold Mode: The filter is controlled by a random voltage, which causes a series of unpredictable bleeps and bloops, and honestly, is just good clean fun. In this mode, the "Range" controls the speed of the effect, and if you figure out what the rest of the controls do, let us know, will you? Add an octave before/after the Sample & Hold and you'll have created a deep-fried space droid computer freakout! read more

We recommend placing the Spatial Delivery first in your signal chain for optimal tracking, but experimenting with stacking and signal chain placement can take the potential of the Spatial Delivery even further. It's like ol' Jack Burton (or was it Shaq?) always says in a time like this, "Don't fake the funk on the nasty dunk."

The Spatial Delivery is true-bypass, and built one-at-a-time by a bunch of damn jokers in Akron, Ohio, USA -- where we would never, ever dream of faking the funk on the nasty dunk.

Spatial Delivery V2 Updates

- New flexi switch silent relay based switching allows for traditional latching or momentary operation.
- For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass. For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down for as long as you'd like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed.

"Really Useful for auto wah or step phaser sounds"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This pedal works great as an envelope filter for a J.Garcia solo vibe or just a spaced out auto wah that can be set to sweep up or down depending on how you want by using the toggle switch. Another great alternative way of using it is as a step filter/phaser with the toggle switch in middle position. This setting is perfect for using the momentary mode of the Flexi switch feature that Earthquaker has been adding to their pedals lately. Overall this pedal has earned a spot on my pedalboard and wont be coming off anytime soon.
