The Chemist - Atomic Modulator
Manipulate the elements, create sonic concoctions, and experiment with new sound textures using The Chemist.
The Chemist is a one-stop sonic laboratory that generates organic modulation and phaser effects using three powerful algorithms: chorus/vibrato, octave, and phaser. You can select which algorithm is active on each channel, allowing you to quickly switch between two modes and settings. The Reaction knob controls the dry signal, and the Catalyst and Formula knobs change depending on the algorithm you select.
• Power Requirement - 9v DC (200 mA)
• Dimensions - 4.77" x 2.6" x 1.39" (121.1mm x 66mm x 35.3mm)

The Chemist can be overwhelming at first! It takes some experimenting (as well as watching YouTube reviews/overviews) to figure out how the pedal works and what it can do. I ordered it for the chorus effect, which is satisfactory. The phaser is good but isn't as fast as I would like it to be. The octave works well with swells, but the attack when strumming or doing lead lines is slow. There's a slight lag for the octave to kick in, which makes it unusable for me in those situations.
