Universal Audio Astra Modulation Machine Effects Pedal
The Astra Modulation Machine is a flagship, no-compromise guitar effect pedal that establishes a new benchmark for classic Modulation effects, with sonic authenticity far beyond all other stompboxes. The Astra Modulation Machine features 3 Legendary Effects, Stereo/Dual Mono operation, True Bypass with Silent Switching, an optional Buffered Bypass via software, Analog Dry-Through, and a Preset Mode to recall stored settings.
- Based on the classic CE-1, the Chorus Brigade tone emulates every inch of this legendary pedal, expertly capturing its legendary bucket-brigade circuit.
- Perfectly emulates the prized MXR studio flanger’s colorful, almost lo-fi-sounding “bucket-brigade” circuit — offering subtle thickening to whacked-out sci-fi effects.
- Captures the balanced, warm tones of classic Fender blackface opto tube tremolo (called “Vibrato” on the amp).
Bonus X90 Phaser & Dharma Trem 61 effects Based on the classic MXR “script” and “block” Phase 90 effects, plus a unique “Dharma” Dynamic Harmonic Tremolo tone — available free at pedal registration.
