The Red Witch Empress Chorus has a personality all her own. She definitely rules over any other chorus pedal on the market. Offering deep, lush chorus and sweet, throbbing vibrato the Empress Chorus imposes her will on the world of modulation effects. One feature the Empress Chorus has that makes her unique is the Voice control. This feature controls the chorus delay time. Delay time controls the overall characteristic of the chorus effect. Shorter delay times give a sparkly, airy type of chorus where longer delay times give more overall modulation or wobble to the effect. Most pedals are made with a set delay time (this accounts for the "unique" difference in most chorus pedals), not the Empress Chorus. She also features a toggle switch for chorus or vibrato. The Voice control also decides the amount of variation in pitch you can get with the vibrato effect. Red Witch comes through again with an entirely unique design with the Empress Chorus.

Voice: This controls the delay time for the chorus or vibrato effect.

Vibe/Chorus Switch: Choose between Chorus or Vibrato mode. When in vibrato Mode you can use the voicing dial to choose from gentle, subtle pitch shifting through to wild semitone leaps. The voicing control functions in vibe mode the same way it does in chorus mode -- it shifts the delay time. Nasty or Nice -- you choose.

Velocity: Super stand still slow to freaked out fast

Mix: As clean or as chorusy as you like

Depth: From a delicate flutter to a sickening swing.

Stereo Out: The Empress Chorus loves to function in stereo -- harness her to two amplifiers and stand in between them -- one will carry the dry signal and the other will carry the wet. The chorusing occurs in the air between the amps. Neat.

Bright switch: This allows you to access some more sparkle on the more shimmery settings (Set voicing anywhere between 7 o'clock and 11 o'clock) . Engaging this switch in more extreme settings will add background hiss.

Internal slide switch: The Empress has two different input stages -- the slide switch lets you choose between them. The unit is preset by us to the Medusa input stage setting. The other position provides a little more boost and slightly different tonal response. Feel free to try both.

Switching: The Empress uses True Bypass switching. When she's not turned on she's just like a piece of guitar cable (A lady's allowed to have some quirks!).
