Hungry Robot Pedals The Wash v2 [Tap Tempo]


The Wash has by far been my most popular pedal since its release in 2016 and now it is getting even better.

The biggest drawback to the original Wash is its size. It has a complicated, large PCB as well as three footswtiches which necessitated a larger enclosure with side mounted jacks (5.7"x4.7"x1.5" + jacks).  

For the new versions, I spent time revisiting the PCB layout and made it more efficient and compact without adding or subtracting any tonal functionality.  The circuit that hundreds of users have fell in love with is unchanged.  

The new versions are squeezed into the same enclosure as The Stargazer and Moby Dick (3.7"x4.7"x2") with options for top mount or side mount jacks (tap input always on side).

Also new is a manual time knob on both new versions (tap tempo & non-tap-tempo)

I also eliminated the right footswitch which activated the "Wash Circuit." With the new version, The Wash circuit is always ON when the pedal is activated. You are still able to dial in a straight delay by backing the Wash, Resonance, and Ripple knobs off to minimum.

Details on The Wash Circuit

The Wash is a dream come true for ambient player and ushers in a new chapter in the world of delays.  It accomplishes the arduous task of creating an organic, below-the-mix wash.  Normally this requires stacking 3-4 reverb and delay pedals at the end of your chain.  The unique "Wash Circuit"  creates the perfect wash with only one pedal.

At its most basic utility, The Wash is an outstanding analog-voiced, tap-tempo delay with just over 1000ms of delay time.  The Wash can be used independently as a standalone delay or with in conjunction with "Wash Circuit."

The Wash circuit (right footswitch) is what makes the pedal stand out from other delays on the market.  The Wash circuit adds reverb to the signal and through a complicated network of internal feedback loops, subtle multi-head Binson effect, and what i have coined "ripple effect," It works to add a hauntingly beautiful wash to your signal in ways that can't be accomplished by stacking a reverb and a delay in series.  It does all of this while keeping the clarity and presence of your original signal without getting lost in the soup of decay.

The "Ripple" knob controls The Ripple Effect.  The Ripple Effect is a feature in which each successive delay trail slowly scatters and transforms into reverb.  The "Resonance" knob is to fine-tune the resonance and decay of the wash.  The Middle "The Wash" knob controls the mix/level of the wash.
