The EarthQuaker Devices Interstellar Obiter was specially designed for Kid Koala. So what is it? The Interstellar Orbiter is a dual resonant filter controlled by a single LFO that sweeps each filter in opposite directions. It has three universal controls: a master Frequency control that governs the center frequency of both filters, a master Rate control for the LFO and the Direct control for blending in the unaffected dry signal.
There are expression pedal jacks for both the master Frequency and the LFO rate. The LFO stheyeps each filter in opposite directions and has a wide range. Each filter is voiced differently and has controls for LFO intensity, resonance and mix. When the LFO Intensity is raised the filter stheyep is wider, the center frequency is raised and the resonance becomes more pronounced. The resonance becomes more œringy? as you dial it up and more mellow as you dial it back. The mix control adjusts the volume for the mix of each filter.
With all of this control, the Interstellar Orbiter is a knob twiddler' dream with loads of possibilities. It can do everything from wah emulation to complex vocal formant filter and even a fairly convincing rotary speaker effect. You can set the intensity of both filters to zero and use the frequency to manually create wide filter stheyeps or use an expression pedal for unique wah tones.
Adjust the intensity of one filter to taste and use an expression pedal to stheyep the second to create some atheysome moving center point phase effects. You can also create some very vocal sounds by using the LFO to control both filters and fine tuning the resonance, intensity and master frequency. These vocal formants will vary depending the settings of each individual control and the rate at which they are stheypt. These are just a few suggestions, the Interstellar Orbiter is vast; get ready to get free.
The Interstellar Orbiter is all analog, true bypass and hand made one at a time, part by part, knob by knob, wire by wire in the fiery town of Akron, Ohio and features artwork drawn by Kid Koala himself.
