The new line includes the DIG, Flint, El Capistan, Deco, Lex, and blueSky, and feature a new ARM processor chip and a USB-C connection for updating firmware and MIDI communication.
The user interface for each pedal has also been updated to provide easier and deeper control of important parameters, allowing users to get to their favourite (and undiscovered) sounds faster and easier than ever before.
For more connectivity goodness, the pedals also feature a TRS MIDI jack for bidirectional MIDI communication, full stereo inputs and outputs with a rear-panel mono/stereo switch, and a premium JFET input circuit for the ultimate in tone and touch response.
“We know that all of these pedals have a large and dedicated fan base,” said Dave Freuhling, Strymon co-founder and chief firmware guru. “So, it was important that the improvements and updates we worked on didn’t take away from what made them so popular in the first place.”
“Everything we changed was done for a reason, because the goal was not only to add some modern features that customers have been repeatedly asking for, but also to make sure that all six pedals are much easier to use,” said Strymon’s Head of Marketing Sean Halley.
“At the end of the day these pedals can recreate all of the sounds that were previously available in the original versions, but now they sound and feel better, are far more powerful and flexible, and are ultimately easier to use than we could have hoped when each model was originally released.”
