Alien mojo meets military tech, circa 1958. The F.13 Neo is our take on space junk stolen from Area 51 and put into the service of rock 'n' roll. Equal parts science, art, weapon and instrument, the F.13 Neo generates interplanetary flange never heard in this galaxy or any other.
We decided to give our fantastic F.13 Flanger the full Neo treatment, and that means new features! The F.13 Neo adds additional controls in all modes, more patterns in Step mode, and the all-new Echo Flanger effect. Top it off with presets, expression, ramp morph and you've got a mean green flanging machine.
Controls in parentheses () are accessed by holding down the Select button and turning the indicated knob.
Rate: Controls the rate of the low-frequency oscillator (LFO) for the flanger, from glacial to space invaders. Controls the input sensitivity in Dyna mode.
(ALT1): Controls the sweep offset (manual) in Auto mode, the pattern select in Step mode, the envelope speed in Dyna mode, or the delay time in Echo mode.
Depth: Controls the maximum LFO sweep in Auto, Step, and Echo modes. In Dynamic mode, this controls whether the flanger sweeps down (less than noon) or up (greater than noon) based on the input signal.
(ALT2): Controls the delay repeats in Echo mode
Mix: Controls the blend between the dry and flanged signal. Equal mix is at 12 o'clock.
(Level): Controls the overall output level of the pedal, from -20dB to +10dB. Unity gain is near 1 o'clock.
Regen: Adjusts the amount of flanged signal fed back into the modulation. Zero feedback is at noon, clockwise increases the positive feedback for a standard flanger sound. Twist this knob counter-clockwise for negative feedback and a unique "inside out" flange.
Select Button - tap to choose a new effect mode:
Auto: Traditional flanging is found here. The LFO of the F.13 Neo is actually a "hypertriangular" waveform, so that the flanger spends more time in the interesting portions of the sweep. The ALT1 knob controls the sweep offset, sometimes referred to as "manual."
Hint: Set the Rate control at zero for "filter matrix" style manual flanging. The Depth knob controls the flange position.
Step: The flanger LFO is forced to "step" to distinct values for transforming robot sounds. The F.13 Neo has eight patterns, selected by the ALT1 control: Up, Down, Up+Down, Square, Whip, Two+Three, UpUpDnDn, and Random.
Dyna: This one is kind of unusual, even for us! The flanger delay time is set by the volume of the input signal. The Rate knob adjusts the sensitivity, to allow for different pickups or effects before the F.13 Neo. The Depth knob controls which direction the flanger will sweep when it hears the input signal. The F.13 Neo now features an envelope speed control on the ALT1 knob. Set this to the fastest speed for a more excentrifugal experienz. Don't say we didn't warn you.
Echo: This one is for all you radio friendly unit shifters out there looking to become the genius of love. We couple a fierce flanger with an exceptional echo for a very interesting take on time delay effects. The ALT1 and ALT2 knobs control the delay time and feedback of the echo, while the Rate, Depth, and Regen knobs control the flanger side. You can set either side to a very short delay for maximum comb filtering, or you can create spiraling soundscapes.
The F.13 Neo requires a 9V DC power supply with a 2.1mm pin, center negative, 80mA. The F.13 Neo is not designed to be powered on supplies higher than 9V and does not use a battery. The F.13 Neo should work fine on a multi-pedal "daisy chain" connector, but if you encounter excessive noise or hum try a separate power supply.
