Caroline Corporation & Music Villa have partnered together to bring back the R5-D4 Kilobyte! In addition to its graphical throwback to a limited “Knight Rider” release from several years ago, this red knobbed, “R5-D4” version includes a couple fun tweaks under the hood. The gain preamp has been increased 2.5x for even more crunchy repeats, and a slight mod to the clipping section makes the feedbacks and havoc even gnarlier.
This pedal is VERY capable of fun runaway oscillations, both by turning up the summation knob, or a controlled, high-pass filtered oscillation from the Havoc momentary foot switch. If you’ve ever struggled to make your delays come through prominently in the mix, or lost definition from your original signal, the attack and level controls can allow you to dial up everything from crisp, clean slapbacks to dirty, muted echoes and loud, powerful repeats. A beautiful, subtle modulation circuit courtesy of Jack DeVille also sweetens the repeats with just the right amount of movement.
Included with each R5-D4 Kilobyte from this super limited run is an optional set of "OG" R5-D4 knobs for those who prefer the look of the original run.
