There's something undeniably special regarding the characteristic odd-order harmonic saturation and unpredictable artifacts that occur when using genuine magnetic tape. That said, channeling this vintage effect in a live setting and with any consistency was a near impossibility. With this in mind, Strymon set out to capture the beloved sound of 2-inch magnetic tape and store it inside an optimized, pedalboard-friendly product. The Deco Tape Saturation and Doubletracker delay pedal accomplishes this in strides, now available in a V2 version with additional controls and tonal flexibility for the most comprehensive and accurate tape emulator available today. The Deco splits its tape saturation and doubletracker functions into a pair of easy-to-follow sections with clearly labeled controls. On the Tape Saturation side, you get the Saturation and Volume knobs found in the previous version with an added Tone control for fine-tuning your sound. Strymon also included a 2-position Voice control with a new Cassette setting for some extra compression, unlocking an entirely new realm of sonic options for Deco users. Returning in the Doubletracker section are Lag Time, Blend, and Wobble controls, with a 3-position Type switch toggling between Sum, Invert, and Bounce settings. The massive range of exciting and inspiring tape tones of the original expands into the stratosphere with the Deco V2 pedal!

Under-the-hood improvements provide unparalleled performance

While the cosmetic and sonic improvements are easily seen, further inspection of the Deco V2 reveals several changes to its core for an even more premium playing experience. To start, Strymon loaded the Deco with a top-quality JFET input circuit. The result? Enhanced responsiveness, dynamics, and feel tailor-made for gigging performers and touring pros. Swapping between mono and stereo modes is as easy as flicking a rear-panel switch, with the option to now control the Deco via an expression pedal or MultiSwitch Plus. Perhaps best of all, a new ARM DSP chip significantly increases processing power while decreasing energy consumption for a clearer and more accurate tone.
