This week we are giving our readers the opportunity to add to their pedal collection a reverb inspired by the sound of the digital racks of the late ’80s and early ’90s, used by many shoegaze and dream pop bands to add an ethereal aura to their guitar sounds.

The Catalinbread Soft Focus is a stompbox recreation of shoegazer heroes Slowdive’s favorite patch found on the Yamaha FX500, a rack multi-effect. Improving on the original without losing the signature sound, the Soft Focus delivers the same lush reverb + modulation enriched by a subtle octave up effect, while adding a quality preamp and a Mix control missing in the original.

Hear the celestial sounds of the Catalinbread Soft Focus in the video below.
