The Avalanche Run is a sonic exploratory multi-tool that includes up to 2 seconds of delay time, reverse delay, tap tempo with subdivision control, sound-on-sound looping, and an assignable expression control. The delay section allows tweaking from tape emulation to bucket brigade styles, and the cavernous plate-style reverb has just touch of modulation reminding us of the Dispatch Master and Afterneath. Otherworldly reverse delay and a swell reverb settings are accessible through a 3-way switch, and an expression knob maps any function to an expression pedal.
The Avalanche Run represents not only new territory for EarthQuaker Devices, but an entirely new experience for the noise-loving musicians of planet earth.
