Strymon just announced the successor of their super popular reverb workstation BigSky: it’s the Strymon BigSky MX. Among the new features, there’s Impulse Response technology and dual reverb patches, allowing the layering of two different effects on top of each other.

The IR/Convolution Reverb addition allows for editing of parameters such as Attack, Stretch, Reverse etc directly from the pedal

Like its predecessor, the BigSky MX features 12 algorithms (aka Reverb Machines). Five are inherited from the original pedal, while seven are brand new. Here’s the list, click on the links for a video/audio example:

Other features include:

  • Dedicated Infinite switch for momentary/latching use of Freeze or Infinite function
  • Stereo input & output
  • Selectable input level for instrument and line level signals
  • Analog dry path for a zero-latency dry signal that is never converted to digital
  • True Bypass (electromechanical relay switching) or selectable Buffered Bypass
  • EXP input allows the connection of an optional TRS expression pedal, MultiSwitch, MultiSwitch Plus, or TRS MIDI connection
  • USB-C jack for performing firmware updates, MIDI I/O, and connection to the Strymon Nixie 2 editor software

And here’s a comparison chart with the regular BigSky (click for larger file):
