In setting out to design the Brigadier, Strymon decided to take a super powerful SHARC DSP and dedicate it to doing one thing and one thing only … delivering the best analog bucket brigade delay sound ever. As a result of having the entire DSP dedicated to doing one extremely high-quality effect, they were able to concentrate on every last detail that makes an analog delay special. No stone has been left unturned … every single bucket is recreated in the Brigadier with the dBucket algorithm. And, since this is done without regular old bucket brigade chips, you get all the tone and none of the noise (unless of course, you choose to add it back in with the exclusive “bucket loss” control ).
Go from warm and clean repeats all the way to noisy, saturated delays. Couple that with dedicated modulation and filter controls, tap tempo, and assignable expression pedal input, and you have yourself a versatile delay powerhouse.
Hand crafted dBucket algorithm for highly accurate reproduction of every stage of an analog bucket brigade chip and the associated clock driver circuitry
Bucket Loss control to vary the amount of loss that occurs at each stage of the dBucket
3 delay time modes: Short, Medium and Long
Tap Tempo modes for quarter, dotted eighth, and eighth note triplets
Filter control for adjusting the tone of the delay repeats
