Digitech Lyra Eternal Descent Effects Pedal : Review

Lyra Eternal Descent

A limited edition

A particular stompbox, a limited edition, that provides 7 tones. They are taken from the Eternal Descent soundtrack, a comic book/CD.

Controls

4: Level, Gain, FX MIX and Lyra.

FX MIX

Simply, it adjusts the amount of the effect.

Lyra

It provides 7 different options.

  • Crystal Cascade
  • Brilliant, clean and with a delay.

  • The Morass
  • Supernatural, mysterious and with the addition of the Phaser.

  • Ethereal Entity
  • Much saturated and with a slow attack, with a reverse delay.

  • Divine Lead
  • A Rock Distortion with the addition of an octave.

  • Lyra's Lightning
  • A very strong lead with a delay.

  • Dark Blues
  • Natural, sweet and with a plate reverb.

  • Crushing Chaos
  • A great amount of Gain and a Flanger.

It can be useful

Rather strange, but in some contexts this Digitech product can be useful to create particular atmospheres. As a whole, the final result is good. The quality of the signal is remarkable. As regards the price, currently it is too much expensive. 130 euros is an exaggeration for a similar pedal, if we consider the limited utilization.

    7 emulations for this pedal: Digitech Multi Chorus, Voodoo Lab Analog Chorus, TC Electronic Stereo Chorus Flanger, Fulltone Choralflange, Boss CH-1 and CE-5, Electro-Harmonix Small Clone.

  • Death Metal
  • Distortion | Digitech
    Death Metal

    The equalization section of this pedal features all the necessary controls ( Low, Mid, High), and the Level knob is the only additional control. The Gain knob is absent, but the manual explains why.

  • DS-2
  • Distortion | Boss
    DS-2

    An excellent solution for Hard Rock leads, or also Blues, but, anyhow, it is rather flexible, thanks to 4 controls and 2 distortion types. Two modes: Turbo I and Turbo II. The DS-2 is slightly noisy, but it's not a great problem.
