The EarthQuaker Devices Avalanche Run is a versatile stereosonic multi-tool. With up to 2s delay, reverse option, tap tempo, and assignable expression control, it offers a spectrum from tape to bucket brigade styles. Toggle between true or buffered bypass with 5 tail lengths. The plate-style reverb, reminiscent of the Dispatch Master, has modulated touches and adjustable Decay. Explore reverse delay and dynamic reverb via a 3-way switch.
Time: This controls the delay time and goes from 0ms to just under 2000ms.
Repeats: Controls the regeneration of the delay, from zero repeats to near infinite.
Tone: Controls the tone for the delay line only. Roll off highs to the left, roll off lows to the right and get a flat response in the middle.
Mix: The is the volume control for the delay line. This blends in the wet with dry until 1 o’clock, 1 o’clock to 3 o’clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 o’clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
Expression Jack Assign Switch: Use this switch to map the expression jack to one of the assigned controls.
Decay: Controls the reverb decay length
R Mix: Controls the reverb mix
Time: This takes over for the delay time control and is DRASTICALLY different than the interface control. Using the expression pedal to control the time will give you all kinds of wild effects that can not be achieved by turning the knob.
Repeats: Controls the delay repeats
D Mix: Controls the delay mix
Toggle: This takes over for the toggle switch and will cross fade from forward delay in heel down position to reverse delay in toe down position.
Ratio Selector Switch: Selects delay subdivisions when time is set by the “Tap” switch.
1/1: Quarter Note
3/4: Dotted 8th
2/3: Quarter Note Triplet
1/2: 8th Note
1/3: 8th Note Triplet
1/4: 16th Note
Decay: Controls the decay length of the reverb, short decay counterclockwise, long cavernous decay clockwise.
Toggle Switch (Mode Selector)
Normal: This is the “standard” delay and reverb mode
Reverse: This is reverse delay mode with “standard” reverb
Swell: This is the volume swell mode
Mix: This is the volume control for the reverb. Blends in the wet with dry until 1 o’clock, 1 o’clock to 3 o’clock boosts the wet signal over the dry and 3 o’clock up brings down dry until it is fully wet when all the way up.
