Clear Skies Ahead

Plug into the Strymon BigSky and instantly lift your sound into the stratosphere. The world below you fades into the distance, and you’re elevated into a glow of lush, glorious, radiant reverbs. To create a reverb experience as natural, beautiful, and immersive as BigSky required tremendous feats of sound engineering and artistic imagination. Using the fundamentals of acoustical science as their beacon, Strymon carefully studied and scientifically analyzed reverb technology from the past fifty years. Strymon then faithfully captured the essence of these classic sounds, and forged ahead to dream up their vision of reverbs from the future. Feel the mechanical tension of the Spring reverbs. Hear the floating particles of the Cloud machine. Defy the laws of physics with the Nonlinear reverbs. Unleash the multi-head reverberations of the Magneto machine. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class reverb machines, each with simple yet powerful controls.

At Riffs & Licks Music, we think the Strymon Big Sky Multidimensional Digital Reverb Pedal combines intense research and design with technological wizardry to bring you 12 incredible reverbs in an easy to use format. If you like reverb, you'll love the Strymon Big Sky.

Reverb Types (Contains Links to Strymon's Youtube Channel)

Hall Diffused reflections and slower-building density. Concert size is well-balanced, spacious and war. Arena size is huge, enveloping and booming.
Plate Rich, fast-building reverb. Creates depth without early reflection cues to a specific environment. The Tone knob and Low End parameter are simple but powerful frequency shaping tools.
Spring Allows for complete customization from warm and mellow to splashy and dripping via Tone and Mix Controls, Dwell parameter, and selectable number of springs.
Swell Brings in reverb gradually behind the dry signal for subtle evolving textures, like having a volume pedal on the wet signal. Alternatively, you can choose to have the dry signal swelled into the reverb, for maximum ambience and atmosphere.
Bloom Slowly building envelope that 'blooms' for big ambient reverb that sits nicely with dry signal even when Mix levels are high. Features a ‘bloom generating’ section that feeds into a traditional reverb ‘tank’, and adds a unique Feedback parameter that expands the possibilities exponentially.
Cloud A gorgeously big, ambient reverb that draws from techniques developed in the late ’70s, and amplifies them using modern technology.
Chorale Think vocal choir accompaniment Choose vowel ranges and intensities to customize your choir as it sings in venues that vary with the Decay knob. As the Modulation is increased, the choir becomes alive with a multitude of voices.
Shimmer Two tuneable voices add pitch-shifted tones to the reverberated signal, for resplendent, unearthly ambience. The voices are carefully created from the reverberated signal to generate maximum radiance and beauty. Amount and Mode parameters allow for a range of shimmer effects from laid-back and subtle to full-blown majestic splendour.
Magneto Sets up a multi-head echo with all heads on, while the PreDelay knob adds feedback. The Diffusion parameter adds a new dimension of ambience, smearing the response of the heads and blurring the line between delay and reverb.
Nonlinear A variety of physics-defying reverb shapes are available for special effects and unique textures. Choose from three ‘backwards’ shapes (Swoosh, Reverse, and Ramp), or a Gate and more. Feedback control, Late Reverb, and Diffusion parameters allow for a vast array of time-warped possibilities.
Reflections Psycho-acoustically accurate small-space reverb that allows you to move your amp anywhere in the room. Algorithm precisely calculates 250 reflections based on the source position within the chosen room shape. Psycho-acoustic modifiers adjust for human auditory perception to create unparalleled ambient-space realism to dry instrument or vocal tracks.
Room Creates environments ranging from well-tuned studio ambience to larger night club acoustics. The Tone knob, Diffusion and Low End parameters adjust the damping and scattering effects of room materials, furniture, and people.

Features

Simple Controls Strymon has hand-picked the most essential reverb controls, and tailored their range and functionality so that sounds can be created effortlessly without extended tweaking.
Presets Instantly save and recall up to 300 of your own presets. Easily bank up or down through your presets using the front panel switches. Give each preset its own custom name to appear on the display. You can even select presets via an external MIDI controller.
Expression Pedal Plug in an expression pedal and control any knob or combination of knobs, including parameters assigned to Param knobs, all saveable per preset. Or plug in an external momentary Tap switch for remote control of Pre-Delay (or Decay time with the Magneto and Nonlinear machines).
Cab Filter Great for times when not using a guitar amp (e.g. direct recording). Typically reverb pedals are placed last in effects chain, so Strymon added Cab Filter utility, which controls a sophisticated speaker response curve - your dirt pedals will sound amp-like, and your clean guitar will have a present yet rounded response.
Assignable Knobs Assign custom parameters to the two Param knobs on the front panel, all saveable per preset. Bring your most used menu parameters to the front panel, allowing a very quick way to tweak your sound on the fly.
Infinite Freeze Press-and-hold active preset footswitch to activate either Infinite Sustain or Freeze, configurable per preset. Infinite Sustain allows reverbs to continue infinitely, with each new note you play adding to the reverb signal. Freeze also delivers infinite sustain, but allows you to play new notes on top of the sustain without adding to the reverb.
Spillover/Persist Engage Spillover to allow reverb decays to “spill over” from one preset to the next. You can also turn on Reverb Persist to allow your reverb decay trails to continue even after you hit bypass.
MIDI Remote control any knob, parameter, or switch. Select your presets via MIDI. Organize and back up your presets to your Mac or PC using a MIDI to USB adapter and Strymon's Librarian software.
