After hitting the jackpot with their Julia Analog Chorus/Vibrato, Walrus Audio announced for NAMM 2019 the birth of Lillian, Julia’s phaser-ish sister.
Based on the same concept and sharing the same number of controls, the Lillian features knobs for Rate, Width and Feedback, a toggle switch to select between 6 or 4 stages and – just like the Julia – the bottom right D-P-V knob that acts as an enhanced Mix knob that adds some vibrato when turned all the way to the right.
Here are a bunch of videos of the Lillian.
Strap into the co-pilot seat and join Lillian on a sonic journey. Leaving nothing behind but clean, puffy white trails of whirling, pulsating and whooshing analog Phase effect. Viewers from below admire in a trance as it transforms the air into a unique and mesmerizing moment. The Lillian is a true bypass, all analog, multi-stage Phaser drawing inspiration from her cousin Julia. With controls like Rate, Width, Feedback, and D-P-V blend, the Lillian is packed with a wide array of analog phaser goodness waiting to be dialed in. The “Stages” switch allows the user to select 4 or 6 stages which alters the overall voice of the effect from warm and tight phasing with 4 stages to a more complex filtered sound with 6. The D-P-V knob lets you blend between dry, phase shifted, and vibrato sounds allowing for a wide range of control over the intensity and type of effect. Top mounted input, output, and power jacks as well as soft switch relay bypassing make the Lillian fit well on your board and ensure smooth operation for years to come.
Borrowed from the Julia, the unique blend between Dry, Chorus and Vibrato has also been provided on the Lillian. Blend between Dry, Phase Shifted, and Vibrato (labeled d-p-v on the pedal). The Dry-Phase-Vibrato blend changes the ratio of dry to wet signal sent to the output. At minimum, you will hear no effect. Set it to noon for equal parts dry and wet – the traditional Phaser setting. Set it to maximum for 100% wet resulting in pitch vibrato. Explore the ground between minimum and noon for adding slight amounts of movement to your dry signal. Explore the ground between noon and maximum for all sorts of unheard phase/vibrato combinations.
